Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is written by Judy Maddigan and super fun. My little Santa cracked me up wobbling back and forth. I hope you try it out.

I made two samples. One really simple one with pieces cut out of Carta Bella Merry & Bright paper cut with Simon Says Stamp exclusive Christmas Trees dies. The tree was decorated with Silver Stickles and Red Baby Bling Rhinestones.  A tiny star was cut out of Desert Marigold Fourz Bazzill paper with another die from the Holiday Trees set.

The santa (from Simon Says Stamp Gnome Sweet Gnome ) was a bit more tricky, since the stamp comes only with his face, not the back.  I stamped it twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstockand cut them out. I flipped one over and traced the lines from the front to the back, leaving off his face and his thumbs.

The images were then colored with Copic Markers (Red: YR09, R24, R29, R39    Mittens: YG01, YG03, YG17    Beard/Hair: N0, N1, N3   Hat trim: W00, W1   Skin: E50, E21, E34, R20). Red paperclips that had been unbend and reshaped were adhered to the inside of the back with Scor-Tape. The front was run through my Xyron and adhered over the back, hiding the paper clip ends. The Santa as well as the tree were adhered to a covered Hershey’s Nugget with Glossy Accents.

Here is a video what these little rockers do: They crack me up, especially that little Santa Gnome.

    Oh, the little ‘rockers’ are wonderful! What a great idea! I have some nuggets on my workdesk right now and am going to make one today! Thank you for the videos – they make me smile! What a happy little gift! Wishing you sunshine today – we have lots here in this part of WI. The other day we had a temperature of 62 degrees – in December – in Wisconsin! People were wearing shorts!
