A Merry Little Helper

Good Morning, Friends!  It is a chilly morning here in St Louis; how about where you are?  With a bit of winter in the air, what better time to play the Merry Monday Christmas sketch challenge?

I fell in love with another Christmas stamp yesterday; I had already passed this little guy up once, but when I spotted hm again yesterday, I just had to have him!

North Pole Helper

 As you can see, I started by flipping the sketch.  He is watercolored on Whisper White cs and mounted on Gumball Green.  The panel dsp is from Stampin' Up's Snow Festival series.  The scalloped edge is Real Red.  The card base is Crumb Cake and is scored along the left hand side, although you cannot really see it in the picture.  Hope you like this little guy; I know I really do!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, 

Lee Ann :)

Supplies used:
CS-Stampin' Up Whisper White, Gumball Green, Real Red, and Snow Festival dsp
Stamps-Stampendous "Special Delivery"
Ink-Creamy Caramel, Crumb Cake, Real Red, More Mustard, Glorious Green, Black Stazon
Other-baker's twine, silver Stickles, MFT large scallop edge die, gem, aquapainter  


Well, I worked in a few dishes and am now back to the crafting.  Today's featured stamper at SCS has a wonderful gallery, but I quickly fell in love with a Santa card of hers. Here is my case of it.  This card is also for this week's CASE study. For this challenge, I focused on the vertical components of the inspiration card-
 Spotlight Santa

I think this is a cross between the Spotlight Technique and the Triple Stamping technique, if there is such a thing!  It is hard to tell, but the colored panel is popped up on dimensionalsThis Saint Nick is so jolly-one of my all time favorite Santa images!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
