Hi Ya'll !!

Today is another TIOT challenge. Suzanne challenged us this week to create a scene. I love this image - it is the Santa and Friends image from the Victoria Case "Winter Wonderland Collection" for SCACD. Santa has been so busy, he decided to take a small break to play with his friends. You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge so you can see all the snow, etc.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

ABC - G is for Green
Allsorts - Bring Out Your Bling
One Stop Craft Challenge - Cards for Kids
Secret Crafter - Easel Cards
Stamp With Us - Christmas
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Snow Much Fun
Saturday Spotlight Challenge - Repeatedly Useful
Creative Craft Challenge - Christmas Fun

I have been wanting to make an Easel card for a long time. Finally, I decided this would be a perfect challenge for one. This is what I ended with. The background is just white cardstock and then I sponged several colors of blue using SU ink for the sky. The red cardstock is SU. I stamped the snowflakes in white, heat embossed with white and glitter. I stamped the trees, heat embossed and colored with copics. All the images are heat embossed and colored with Copics. I cut an extra deer, squirrel and presents and paper pieced for added for dimension. After the coloring, I added snow on the ground and trees with Polar White Flower Soft with a little Doodlebug glitter. Santa's beard is painted with 3D iridescent paint. Santa's suit and the little hats also have the Flower Soft. If you haven't figured it out, I love lots of glitz. To add more of a scene, I cut out a deer, squirrel, and presents , using the same stamp, and popped them up for more dimension. The branches were cut from my MS branch punch.
This is a side view. This card was a lot of fun to make. You may see more of these cards coming, I think I may be hooked.
