Santa's Buckle

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps September 2013 rubber stamp and die release BLOG HOP! 

Our brand new September Release Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, Whimsy Shapeology Dies and Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store!!

To celebrate our new release, the DT are holding a blog hop today and are sharing creations made with some of the brand new Elisabeth Bell, Time For Tea Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs stamps!

I decided to use a new sentiment set by Raindrop Echo Designs called Holiday Sliders 3.
I just love this font, it's so fun!
I thought it would make a great belt buckle for a Santa suit card.
I embossed it once with silver embossing powder and used the matching Slider 3 die to cut it out and then stamped it again with black and just cut out the oval and glued that on top.
This set is actually really versatile, I hope you'll come back to my blog tomorrow to see how I've used it in a very different way.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Holiday Sliders 3
Card : red, white, black
Ink : versamark, stazon
Other : Slider 3 die, Delicate designs ef (SU), big shot, silver ep, oval nesties, buttons and thread
