Less is More #250

Hello there friends are we ready to get festive?
Well the season is certainly in the air at 

Less is More

this morning and what's more it's that
'dreaded' One Layer Card week ... themed Santa!

I received some magnificent happy mail ... via email this week,
from Michelle at The Card Grotto - I'd won her recent giveaway!
 Free entry to the latest Online Card Class: Holiday Style! 
Michelle is one of the guest designers this time and I can't wait for that lesson!
Having never taken part in these classes before I'm finding it so fun and
jam-packed full of inspiration - pity I can't keep up with the daily homework!!!

Onto my card and I was inspired by May Sukyong Park of Mayholic in Crafts,
another of the guest designers at the Online Card class. Her brilliant technique 
makes fantastic us of all the teeny little stamps in sets.

Santa falling down the chimney is an old wooden stamp that's been
in my stash forever and I've used various sets by Clearly Besotted, 
Uniko and Paper Smooches to create the colourful explosion of gifts and images.

I'd like to link this card up to the student gallery over at 

Next up using some new sets from Clearly Besotted

A wintry little scene with Santa heading through the woods into town!
The sets are Santa Baby, Birch Tree Background and Naughty or Nice!
Santa is coloured with Zig Clear Brush pens. I stamped and masked him 
first before creating a snowbank with some torn post-it tape then stamped 
the background and the sentiments once the mask was removed.

Just the two from me this week as I've had a busy time introducing
the new stamps at Uniko but there's plenty more to see over on the main
Less is More blog HERE - as usual my teamies have rocked it with their
fabulous creations so hope you'll stop by their blogs too.

Thanks for calling in today, have fun and happy crafting!
