Happiest of Holidays

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week. I'm in D.C. for work, and I'm really looking forward to seeing some local crafty friends at the end of the week. :)

I'm guesting with the My Favorite Things Challenge and Inspiration team again. Yeah! It's a sketch challenge this week, and you can see the sketch HERE.

Here's my take on the sketch:

Happiest of Holidays

Isn't the elf adorable?? I love him and had to use him. I colored the little guy from the My Favorite Things Santa's Elves set with Copics. For the bell, I added a little Wink of Stella over the coloring (yes, I know; it's hard to see).

Happiest of Holidays

The elf was tucked behind the two die-cut panels. On the bottom layer, I stamped the awesome Sweater Stitched Background stamp and then die-cut the panel with Cross-Stitch Square STAX. On top, I die-cut patterned paper using the Zig Zag Stitch Square STAX.

Below the elf, I wanted to make it look like the elf was dropping the jingle bell into the stocking. I stamped the stockings using the same Santa's Elves set, and then colored and paper pieced them.
