Whimsy Stamps ~ Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Hey crafty friends, as promised I'm back with another Christmas creation. This time featuring a fabulous stamp from Whimsy Stamps that sets a wonderful Santa in the night sky scene!

I ink blended a fun amber glow sky, then added a cityscape using the Slimline Cityscape Die Set from Whimsy. The moon I used is from the Howling Night Die Set, which I ran lightly a little Distress Oxide Ink in Scattered Straw and Black Soot over the edges and high points, leaving the craters created by the die, quite white. This is such a great moon die! Useful for any creations that you wish to feature a moon, definitely not just for Halloween. I ink splattered the background and the cityscape. The final touch was to stamp Santa and his sleigh from the wonderful newly released ATC Vintage Christmas Clear Stamp Set. I used the sentiments from this set in a previous batch make of tags, as they're just lovely! But the Santa in his sleigh image was perfect for this creation. I really wanted to make more of these and I know I'll pull this set out for next Christmas, I just ran out of time to do all the things I wanted to this Christmas. 

Today was a super busy day as my big sister and I had planned an 80th birthday celebration for my wonderful mummy and her twin sister. We had both families together. I'm one of 7 siblings and my aunty had four kiddos, with all our children, it was quite the gathering! So I've been busier than usual in the lead up to this Christmas! On that note, I've still some last minute shopping and planning to do for Christmas, so must crack on. Hugs to you all and have a wonderful Christmas Day xoxo
