High Hopes Oct "POTM"

This card features 2 of the stamps offered in this months "Oct. Project of the Month" ..."Three Pane Santa" and "No Peeking, Poking or Shaking". The Oct POTM also includes, "Med Candy Cane", "To: From:" and "Small Candy Cane". This is a Fabulous set and can be used for so many projects.....tags, gift bags...etc. Be sure to check out Kimmies projects right here. You can get this set for 25% off the regular price.

I used the Fabulous Splitcoast SC196 for my layout.

To color the Santas I used prismacolor pencils (oms), twinkling h20's and acrylic white paint for accents.

After I colored the Three pane Santa I cut the Santas out and used dimensionals to pop them and the sentiment up.

For the fur I used "Shiny White Scribbles" and sprinkled glitter on it before it dried.

Ink - versafine black, blue bayou.

Paper - GP white, daisy bucket, basic grey, bazill, costco

Accessories - brads, glitter, stickles, Scribbles, stitching, hemp, cord

Remember to keep Hoppin' with the High Hopes Blog Hop!!
