Verve Nov. Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3


It's day 3 of Verve's November spotlight hop, and I chose to feature Santa's Helper. Isn't he just super adorable?!?!?!?! I stamped him onto kraft cardstock and colored him with Copics. I added some red Viva Decor Gel to his nose and sprinkled it with red glitter. Cause we all know that Rudolph is "the" helper. :) I thought Rudolph would look cute sitting on the new Lovely Marquee die, and it works beautifully with the frame from Love Story. I added some snowflakes from the set Glad Tidings, and diecut them with the new Snowflake Tidings dies. Lastly, I added some gingham ribbon, some burlap string, a button and random sewing.

I should also inform you that this sketch was designed by the sweet and talented Jackie Pedro, and can be found in the Verve Forum on Splitcoast Stampers. It's this week's VLV Sketch.

That's it for me. Be sure to check out the other projects these gals have to share.
