Santa's Helper

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday!  Today I've got a fun little holiday card to share using some new stamps and dies from Verve.  This one features Santa's Helper, Bright Spirits and a couple of the new dies.

The layout probably looks familiar, since it's another take on last week's Mojo Monday 214 sketch.  I started by stamping Rudy in archival ink, then coloring with Copics and hand trimming with scissors.  I paperpieced his outfit and ribbon for his hat, then added a little glassy glaze to his nose for shine.  His backdrop is created with the snowflake stamps from Bright Spirits, which I filled in with a quickie glue pen and accented with ultrafine glitter.  Unfortunately my lighting wasn't great when I took the photo, so the sparkle doesn't show, but it's super sparkly in real life!  {grin}  The Santa's Little Helper sentiment is stamped onto a  Lovely Marquee Die cut (which is also stamped with the coordinating frame from Love Story).  I finished with some striped ribbon, silver cord and pearls, then accented  with a couple die cuts using the Winter Fun Die Set and the coordinating stamp from Bright Spirits.

Well, I hope you have a fabulous day!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you haven't already, be sure to check out all the new stamps and dies from Verve!
