'Twas the Night Before Christmas Clarity Stamps - Bauble

This is another in the range of 'Twas the Night stamps.  I think it's probably one of my favourites.  The bauble is lovely to colour and perfect for using with Angelina Fibres and Film.  That is what I've used here.  I've also used the Universal Framer that is part of the set.  It fits the verses perfectly but can also be used with other stamps, not just Christmas ones.

I used the White Gold Fibres and Pearl Gold Film.  To give it a bit more interest I coloured the sky on the stamped image in my darkest blue ProMarker, Indigo.  You can see in the top photo that it makes the sky a darker colour when you put the film and fibre sandwich on top of it..  It also makes the moon stand out more.  It's quite subtle but I like the effect.

I used Barbara Gray's technique of pushing the iron into the stamp to make the roof puff out.  It looks like it's laden down with snow.

The corner stamp is from Clarity and the 'Twas the Night words are from the first stamp in the series, the mouse in a shoe.

The gold scalloped mat is cut on my Silhouette Cameo.


  1. Waiting for the framer to arrive! it's a lovely set and makes a stunning card xxx

  2. brilliant Lynne i too love these stamps i have some but not all might treat myself to the stockings one at port sunlight.

  3. Beautiful! Can't wait for my 'Twas the night stamps to arrive!!!!

  4. Love this 'twas' stamp too - great tip about colouring in the sky before adding fibre overlay gives definition and sets off the moon. I have tried using the 'twas the night before Christmas' as a sentiment but find it difficult to line up because the word Christmas is on 2nd line. You have the knack because you have used it 4 times.There are so many ways you can use these stamps as standalone or using the whole set - it's well worth the money. Did I hear correctly did Barbara say she might bring 1 more out to finish the set hope so x

  5. Hi Lynne,
    WoW! This is simply stunning. I love how you've framed the whole thing with the words and the corner stamp, and the tip about colouring the sky first is fab. Thank you for that. I really must invest in this set of stamps they're all beautiful. xx
