Stamp Something - Digi Week

Happy Friday!!

It's already time for another challenge over at stamp something and it's time again for

Use any of your digital stamps to join the fun, that's the only challenge so you can all join in.
We have several awesome sponsors again - Some Odd Girl, Sassy Studios, Sew many cards, Digi Doodle Shop and Whimsy Stamps. Several chances to win!!

I was able to choose a digi from Whimsy Stamps, this one is called "Classic Santa" and it's from the Crissy Armstrong collection, newly released.
I didn't have a good santa stamp or image yet and this one is just was perfect! Plus I love being able to resize this image!
Thanks so much Denise!!

Oh and speaking of Whimsy, they have an awesome Digistamp sale right now and ending on November 14th - 50% off all Digistamps. You might want to check into that, lots and lots to choose from!

I've colored Santa using Derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. Then I sponged the edges using Always Artichoke ink (stampin up). I used an old SU christmas verse stamp on the scallop circle behind the image and also sponged the edges. The Designer Paper is from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection that I had in my stash for over a year ago.

I made the flowers (poinsettias maybe?) using a retired Stampin Up Punch and the leaves with Martha Stewart's branch punch. Sentiment is from Stampin Up. I didn't have any gold brads so I used copper ones and covered them with gold stickles. To finish the card off I sewed all the edges and added stickles here and there around the edges and the flowers.

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:

I hope you'll join us at stamp something this week, and if you happen to use something from your stash that you had for a while and never used before then you can also enter it to this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge for another chance at a great prize! I am also having a mini DT call for the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog if anyone is interested (info on the challenge blog).

Happy (digi)stamping,
