'Twas the Night Before Christmas Clarity Stamps - Rooftop

Well we're getting near to the end of my 'Twas the Night cards. This one is the ninth in a series of ten stamps by Barbara Gray. Hopefully Barbara will get drawing and we'll get some more next year.

As Santa is coming down the chimney I thought it might be fun to be peeping in the window at him.  It also gave me an excuse to buy the new Spellbinders Bricks and Bark M-Bossibilities folder that I'd been lusting after!  

I stamped the mice before I embossed the card, so that I got a nice, crisp image. Then I inked it with some Walnut Distress Ink to enhance the brick effect.

The window was cut on my Cameo.  As it's a simple shape I was able to draw it myself.  A scalloped strip made the pelmet and I cut the curtains freehand. There is a sheet of acetate in the window so that it looks like it's glazed.

The fluff on Santa's boots is Flowersoft. 

It's a good job the cat is better behaved than Maya. She would be jumping all over him if he came down our chimney!

  1. Gorgeous!! I am in love with these stamps - but sadly haven't found time to play with mine yet. Will definitely be popping back for inspiration when I do! :)
