Santa Melvin....Sweet Stamp Shop Christmas:}

Hello, friends:}


I'm back with another Sweet Stamp Shop creation. It's my day over on the SSS blog--so be sure to stop by there and leave some love! Today we are making an owl into Santa;)


I've used one of my very first SSS sets {Melvin & Vernie} for my card. I LOVE that owl! He is perfect for paper piecing...and for dressing up! When I saw THIS set {Thanksgiving Owl-fits}, I knew I wanted to make Melvin into Santa Owl. I love his little hat and that beard cracks me up! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! **I do wish that you could see his mustache better. I thought about adding liquid applique to his hat/beard....maybe next time! I also used my SSS Sweet Alpha Doodle stamp set for the sentiment. I'm a BIG believer in saying "MERRY CHRISTMAS"--and I wanted CHRIST to stand out (since Jesus is the reason for the season!). So I broke up the sentiment and used two inks. The ribbon {which is available HERE at The Ribbon Carousel} adds just the right amount of pop! My design is pretty CAS--LOVE it! I'm also entering this in the Paper Issues Holiday Madness challenge:) 
If you look really close--you can see that I used my Copic YG91 Putty and E55 Light Carmel on Melvin's body--it was my first time using them! I think I did pretty good:) 


That's it for me today--Be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog for more info on this project and to see what the owner of SSSNicole, has been up to! 

And if you have some extra time, please stop by our YouTube channel (I am hoping to upload a NEW video this week!!!!), our FB page, follow us on Twitter  and link up any creations you have made using SSS images on Flickr

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:)
