TRC Rockin' Santa's - Hershey Nugget Rockers Tutorial

Hi Everyone!   Thank you so much to those of you who were able to hop along with us this week, if you missed the past few days, go back and check out what the Design Team came up with, I know  you'll be inspired!!   Those that were able to participate in the New Release Blog Hop, be sure to check back on Dec 17th, we'll be annoucing the Winner!!

Today I want to share a fun little item, that I saw and was inspired to make some of own.  I saw Beate Johns blog and tutorial first but her blog will also lead you to the tutorial featured Splitcoaststampers by Judi Maddigan.  You'll find her tutorial here.

Here's my Rockin' Santa, using The Rubber Cafe' 'Oh Santa's stamp.   I made about a dozen of these cute little fellas!  And although the still shot does not show them rockin' out, you can see them in motion on Beate's Blog.

Here's a close-up of my Santa, I stamped and used all but his legs, as these were replaced by the paperclips.  I backed him with a die-cut tree using Tim Holtz' Tree die.  You can see one of the 'Santa' rockin' in the background to the right- I set him in motion when I snapped the picture so you could see how they move side-to-side!

Here's another group shot!  Together like this they just make me smile! 
Our Hula Santa stamp would be cute to use as well can't you just see the grass skirt sway as it rocks!

I hope you can pick a fun character and get 'em rockin' too!
They are so worth the time, and effort. These were gift favors at a crop, but I think I'm going to need to make some more for Christmas Eve dinner and place them at everyone's place setting!
