My Holiday Catalogue "Stache"

"HO HO HO!" Check out my Holiday Stache! Yep, this stamp set: Santa Stache, is the one item I pre-ordered from the holiday catalogue. It was too cute to pass up!

Is it too early to post Christmas? Nah!!! I love Christmas crafting!

The other night, I connected up with my friend Heather Summers and stamped!

Well... sort of. Heather is away on a grand adventure with her family and is living in Australia for the year. As much as I would love to  say I visited her, I can't. But we do what we can to stay connected. I messaged her the other night and asked her if she wanted to stamp! This is how the conversation went:

Okay, so we had our parameters (Santa Stache, Whisper White, Real Red and any of the new In Colours) and off we went stamping... in our own craft rooms.

I must admit, that it took EVERY BONE IN MY BODY, not to colour with my Blendabilites. But I know Heather has minimal supplies, so I stayed true to the parameters.
You're probably thinking I cheated with Santa's face, but I didn't. I promise. I used a Blender Pen, Real Red and Hello Honey Ink.

I simply squeezed my ink pad before opening, to transfer some ink to the lid. Then with the blender pen, I coloured out the ink on my lid, until it was a light colour. I coloured in Santa's cheeks and then with an even lighter red, I coloured around his face. Then with a very light version of Hello Honey, I coloured over top of the red. Voila - Skin tone! I also used the same method to colour the white with a little bit of Lost Lagoon.

Make sure to check out Heather's card! It's super cute as always! Thanks for stamping with me Heather and thank you, for once again stopping in! Happy Creating everyone!
