Mojo Sketch and Santa's Bag

The Ways to use It Challenge on Split Coast this week was to use stickers or rub ons on your card. I have several packages of rub ons but I always forget to use them. I found these pretty Christmas ones in my craft room from Stampin Up that I bought last year when they were on sale and knew they'd be just the thing for the challenge!

I used the mojomonday sketch for my card. I just touched Santa's cheeks with a blush Copic for a dash of color - I wasn't sure if it would stay on the rub on - but it did! The great papers are Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly.

Stamps: none
Paper: Vintage cream, ocean tides, dark chocolate - PTI
Ink: chamomile - PTI
Accessories: Copic R20, Rub Ons - SU Old St. Nick, classic oval nestability, Alpine Ribbon - SU, foam dimensionals, glue dots, vintage buttons - PTI


And here is the third treat bag that the elves dropped off at my house last week (see post here)

This cute baglette is from the big guy himself (Santa that is!) but I'm sure the elves designed and made it for him to givw out! The shape looks surprisingly like the Top Note by Stampin Up and this is the official Santa's workshop seal on the front. How fun that they attached a little reindeer and snowflake on the corners to give the North Pole atmosphere!

Inside they tucked more of those fun mints with the Seal of the Chief Elf on them - again - an official mark so we know these are the real thing straight from the North Pole!
And on the back - a personal note from Santa (doesn't he have lovely handwriting?!?) for the kids (and parents!) who have left him a little treat to give him strength for his travels Christmas Eve. Santa is nothing if not a gentleman - get a treat, give a treat!

Now - you can find very similar stamps to those used on this project by the elves above over at Claire's shop Waltzingmouse Stamps. Check out her other two new sets while you are over there - you'll definately want to pick up one or two! And - just a suggestion - if you like it - buy it - she sells out fast on her lovely stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Julia, I just saw your comment on my blog about using the same DP for the MM sketch and had to come check it out- it's gorgeous! I wish PTI wasn't so $$ to ship to Canada b/c that CS matches the DP perfectly!
I love that little treat bag! I'm following your blog now to keep up to date on all your gorgeous creations!
