Before we get started, I have a WINNER
from yesterday's post to announce!  

The winner is...

Pia S. who said:
"It's gorgeous, Mynnette. I've always struggled coloring in flowers, but the way this is designed with the shaded parts leaves me with a feeling I could manage coloring this one. It deserves to be in the spotlight, so I like that you kept it fairly simple, just adding a bit of sparkle and texture. Great job!"

Please email me at mhkdesigns.etsyATgmailDOTcom 
and I will email you the set from yesterday!!!

Today we're sharing the "Simply Santa" set...

Since the holiday season is fast approaching, at least in the crafting world, I thought I'd make up a mini set with a fun vintage Santa image!  I think he is ever so jolly, don't you?  Take a peek at what I created with this set + a SNEAK PEEK of digital papers to come later this year...


I really LOVE the Santa image from Simply Santa set, and I wanted to color him in a bit uniquely.  I was going for a Santa that was bathing in the multi colored lights of a Christmas tree...but I'm not sure if I really like the way that the image turned out.  I kept him the way he was, though, because I thought one of you might like him! ;)


I added the sentiment as an anchor towards the bottom of the card.  This digital paper will be in the store SOON...with more holiday prints...so stay tuned!


I used a doily, some buttons, rhinestones, and felt pieces to embellish my card.  I used colors to mirror the ones used on the image for the "holly" berries.  I really think this turned out so fun--I hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you think!

WOW this is just stunning! What a great set. Love the unusual colors but it really gives this card a retro look. Just perfect for Christmas!

Now this is what a Santa should look like - he has almost a vintage feel to him (which would be me) vintage. What a great image.

Pia S said...

Your abstract coloring in combo with the very traditional color scheme and embellishments looks really pretty.. Vintage Santas with kind faces, like this one, are my favorites.

Pia S said...

And also, thank you so much for your giveaway, I loved your flower set showcased yesterday and I'm so happy to be the lucky winner.
