'Twas the Night Before Christmas

I love assembling little scenes using a variety of stamps.  For this twinkling card I used two stamps sets and carefully layered and pieced together various elements to achieve my glowing Christmas eve look.

I started off with my background stamp which I inked up using two tones of blue.  I created an oval mask for the glowing light, which left me a blank area to color with my Copics.

I used the oval stamp to create my mask for the lamp glow.  To make my street lamp more dimensional I stamped it on my card front and once again on another piece of cardstock which I fussy cut and adhered with foam adhesive squares.  I filled in the glowing area and glass of the lamp with a glaze and added some glitter for sparkle.

That pretty little tag is a custom die template from JustRite Papercraft called:

and those glowing gold gems are from Want 2 Scrap.

Once again the ladies over at JustRite have put together such pretty samples to choose from - I particularly like the signs with snow on them!

I will be back soon with more JustRite goodies. Thanks for stopping by and cheers to a crafty weekend!
