Santa’s Helpers | Simon Says Stamp

HEY FRIENDS! I’m slowly working through my stash of stamps and I came across the Santa’s Helpers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I’m usually a one and done kind of crafter — I use a stamp once and I rarely go back and use it again. This mindset has advantages because I don’t get so attached to my stamps that I can’t destash as needed. But it does get expensive to use a stamp set just once and then set it aside indefinitely. So I decided to try to use as many of the images and sentiments from this stamp set and came up with three cards which I have to show you today. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I want to note that I tried out a few new to me Copic color combinations, experimenting with underpainting. If you are new to underpainting, I highly recommend taking a look at this article by Amy Schulke of Vanilla Arts to help get your feet wet.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project! See you again soon!
