Tupelo Designs LLC - Christmas Time


Happy Friday!  Are you getting ready for Christmas?  We haven't gotten the tree up yet.  I've been focusing on the Christmas shopping and trying to get a few cards out here and there.   Have I told you IT'S COLD in the Midwest?    I'm still walking Miss Moriko every morning.  She hasn't noticed any change in the weather.. She's perfectly happy with the wind!  It just takes me longer to bundle up.... I've got my heaviest coat and socks, gloves and a face mask!  I hate walking out that door, but when I get back I'm sure glad I did.  These past few days I've been hearing the Sand Hill Cranes whirling above me as they make their migration!  I would never have heard them otherwise!   You'd laugh to see me trying to show them to the dog.. as if she cares!  That's what happens when you don't have any one else to share them with! 
If you're making Christmas  / Holiday cards, Tupelo Designs LLC has you covered!  This fun Avery Elle Santa is from the Oh What Fun! stamp set.  You can find it on sale here for only $4.00!!  The matching die set makes these super easy to mass produce.  I stamped mine with Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers.
The background was created with a wash of Ranger Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door.  The pretty stitching along the edge was created with the Wonky Stitches die (see link below).

The snowy hill Santa is standing on was cut using the Snow Caps die.  I cut the hill from the same watercolor paper as the background so it would match.  After I cut the hill shape, I cut the die again using the Wonky Stitches so the snowy hill has a stitched pattern that matches with the background.

Fun card and love how you talk to your dog , if it makes you feel better when my son is at work his cat comes to my house and we have many conversations about the wildlife we see in the garden, she is a housecat but has a pen in the garden and likes walking on a lead but she unlike Miss Moriko is a fair weather girl and doesn't like the wind or rain just sunshine.
Love your bright and cheerful card too.

Brrrr...Your description of bundling up mirrors mine, although I add long johns to the ensemble. Fashionable? Ha! NOT! We're expecting a HIGH of minus 31C today...lovely! Your Santa makes me smile, so filled with joy and vibrant colour! Stay warm, my friend...admiring your perseverance in heading out into the elements, despite the cold!
