Speaking of wishlists, this adorable little Santa is Coming set has been on my wishlist for a while and I finally ordered it up last month. This long eared bunny in a little fangirl tizzy over Santa coming just cracks me up!


I stamped the bunny directly onto some beautiful designer paper from the new Christmas in the Country collection from Prima. I colored her with Copic markers, adding in some flicks with a white gel pen and a bit of glossy glaze on her nose.  Next I randomly stamped the snowflake from the Santa is coming sentiment in the background using watermark ink and clear embossing powder. 


Next I shaded with antique linen, gathered twigs and early espresso distress inks for a vintage look.  To give a little bit of pizazz on the side, I cut the panel with the snowflakes from the Holiday Toppers Cutups, then masked off the edge and coated the snowflakes with watermark ink and embossed in gold.  This panel is popped up on foam over another paper from the collection, then accented with shiny gold pearls.



The sentiment is masked off to stamp just the Santa is Coming portion on a rectangle of designer paper and then I matted with the rectangle frame from the Four Seasons Duo Dies.  A special delivery snippet and some fussy cut flowers from one of the patterned papers adds some interest up in the top corner to finish things off.
