I wanted to share these cuties with you I made for a sweet friend of mine as a present. She loves koalas and I wanted to turn the cute images from the Sugarpea Designs+Simon Says Stamp Stamptember collaboration set into little Santas.
I started with stamping an colouring the images with Copic markers and I die cut them with their coordinating dies. The Santa hats are from the MFT Beast Friends stamp set.
For the tags I used the small tag from Sugarpea Designs to cut them from heavy weight white cardstock which I previously covered with silver glitter tape. I adorned the tags with some green metallic branches (also part of the tag die set). I adhered the cute koalas on each and finished them with a thin red ribbon. A bit of Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and glossy accents of course I had to add.
The card I kept similarly clean and simple too. I die cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot machine one more time with the swirls background die from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut a stitched strip from the same green metallic cardstock and heat embossed a Hungarian sentiment (Scrapfellow) on it with silver embossing powder.
I gave it a silver mat using silver glitter tape and assembled the card. The same finishing touches I applied here too: glossy accents on the nose, black glaze pen on the eyes, Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen on the Santa hat.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes, to the Work it Wednesday Challenge (use something new) and to the Sugar Pea Designs Anything goes Challenge too.
I hope you like it an will return soon for more inspiration.
