DOTTY SANTA

As I mentioned in my post last Sunday, I am participating in a 30 Days of Creativity Challenge through Pretty Paper Studio on Instagram. 

Each day -- December 1-30 -- we participants are given a prompt. We can interpret this prompt in any creative way we like. Since I am primarily a cardmaker, I decided from Day 1 that each of my 30 days would feature a card.

The prompt for Day 7 was "work space". Oh my. That leaves me with LOTS of options. You see, until I really really have to put things away, I usually go from one project to another, without cleaning away the stuff I'd just used. Consequently, there are always lots of supplies lying about in my work space. 

This one was sort of a no brainer. I had used my Copic Markers to color in a whole bunch of these cute Cookie Cutter Santas, punched them out, and they were just lolling around, waiting for me to do something with them. Since I'd made enough Christmas cards to send out, and these were supposed to go on Christmas cards, they didn't have a home. Sad, eh? Santa without a home?!?

So, I went to work on one of the plethora of Santas I had colored and punched. Here's what I came up with:


Below is a closer look at how I colored all these cute Santas. I thought I would show you that to explain the strange color combination I used for the dots in my background.

The background dots were punched with the 1/2", 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches.

Do you notice the "stitching" around the perimeter of the oval on which my Santa rests? Yup. That is one of the new Stitched Framelits. Those are simply the bestest!


I hope you're all having lots of fun with the cute characters in these Cookie Cutter sets and then punching them out with the coordinating punch! And acutally DOING something with them!


I'd love it if you'd check out all of my Days of Creativity submissions on my Instagram account. 
And feel free to follow me if you care to!
