Hi there, LID friends! Welcome to the first day of the Lil’ Inker Designs release hop! There are so many goodies for you this month including 3 new sets from the Sugar Kissed Cottage line. Today I’m introducing you to Dear Santa – a darling vintage Santa along with 7 sentiments.
I chose to put this little guy on a gift box. I truly hate wrapping presents, so this will be easy to pop something into at the last minute and maybe use year after year. Yep, I’m lazy like that! LOL
The papers are from Echo Park: This & That Christmas. Love them! If you hurry, some of the paper pads may still be available in the store! The Ho, Ho, Ho sentiment is actually in a straight line. I just inked up the first *Ho* three times and fit it into the jolly old guys lines. It’s also embossed for a little extra umph.
He is colored with Copics. I added some white fluff to his beard, hair and eyebrows. The only stuff I had left had some glitter in it, making him a little more *magical*! The trim on his hat and suit is covered in Liquid Applique. You just let it dry overnight and then heat it with the heat gun to make it poof!
The silk bow on top needed a little something, so I embossed another of the sentiments from the set on a Spellbinders tag. A few little jingle bells – both rusty and red – tied in some twine finish this little package off!
Here’s the set in it’s entirety
Super cute, eh? Ok, so this is a hop! And this hop has prizes, so don’t forget to comment along the way. Two secret blogs will have a $10 gift certificate to the Lil’ Inker Designs store picked randomly from the comments. The more you comment, the better your chances! You should’ve arrived here from the Lil’ Inker Designs blog…if not, go back and start over! ;o) Hop on over to Amy’s blog next! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :o) lyss
