STAMPlorations Inspiration #49 - Ho Ho Ho


Time for some STAMPlorations inspiration.  I thought I'd have some fun with the little birdie from my stamp set, The Bee's Knees SmallBirds.  Today's he's a robin with his little Santa hat.  I stamped the image on white card, then drew a Santa hat on him, then sloshed some red and brown Distress Inks and fussy cut him.

The background is an inked embossing folder image, and I've added a sentiment from Joyful, then a little line of Star Dust Stickles to ground the robin.


Hmm - I wonder how the kookaburra and puffin would look with a Santa hat?  Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration from the rest of the design team.

I'm entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes,

and City Crafter Challenge, The Snow Queen.
