Cardmaking

S for Season’s Greetings

Happy hump day crafty people!  How’s your week going?  I’m super busy with Christmas orders for my Etsy shop and trying to get my own Christmas cards finished and sent off.  However, I did manage to escape the Christmas crafting last night to go for pizza and to see Once upon a Deadpool last night.  We had seen (and loved) Deadpool 2 but it was fun to watch and there was a lovely memorial to Stan Lee at the very end which would have brought a tear to a glass eye!

Today I would like to share my entry for the the new Alphabet Challenge which currently is to make a card using S for Season’s Greetings.  I decided to go with a stamped santa as a focal image for the card.  This one was part of a free magazine gift and I stamped it in black memento ink and heat embossed it with a sparkly embossing powder.  I coloured it with alcohol pens (I have a mix of nuvo, spectrum noirs and first edition markers) and added a little more sparkle with my spectrum noir crystal clear sparkle pen.

I then mounted him on the card with a couple of different papers that were also gifts with magazines (trying to use up some of my paper stash as it is a little out of hand!) and a little row of nuvo drops in red.  The final touch was to add the Season’s Greetings stamp, can you guess where it came from? Yup it was free with a magazine!  I think there is definitely a theme for this blog post!

Anyway I hope that you like my card and if you haven’t had a look at the Alphabet Challenge that you will pop over to see some of the fab entries and maybe play along.

Thanks so much for visiting Ginger Ninja Crafts blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
