Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone!

It's day two of Release Week at Neat & Tangled! Today, we're sharing projects using the Little Santa Girl stamp set. She's so cute! Danielle is sharing pictures of the stamps on the Neat & Tangled blog, so be sure to check it out.

I used the mini set for a tag:

Happy Holidays Tag

Do you ever have those projects where you start creating but have no plan in mind? Yep, this tag was one of those projects. I started by coloring the Little Santa Girl with Copics, but I felt like she needed an oomph. So, I paper-pieced her hat and tights and used colored pencils to add shading to the patterned paper.

At first, she was going to be standing, and then I was going to have two girls coming from the edges. After playing around, I decided to have one girl peeking into the scene. I had to cut off her legs, which was kind of weird. But, it looked weirder to have the legs hanging off. ;)

I added some Webster's Pages All That Glitters vellum and stitching. Here's a close-up:

  5. Such a beautiful tag! I love that vellum background, and she looks so cute peking in from the side! The paper-piecing looks just right for her hat and tights.
