Coming Attraction

Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

I just love the PXS Santa that I used on my previous post.  The stamp was borrowed from a friend so I decided I would see if I could find one to purchase.  I found this gorgeous PSX stamp and I decided to purchase him instead. Isn't he just gorgeous?

Equally as gorgeous is this Precious Maricke die, Fantastic Flowers. A perfect frame for my new stamp. 

I wanted the poinsettias to pop, so I stamped them twice, fussy cut them and popped them up with dimensional dots.  Liquid Pearls were used to add dimension to the flower centers and the holly berries.

For the inside I used one of favorite Christmas sentiments, Bright With Promise by Stampabilities.  In the corners I used a holly die from Marianne Dies. I sponged them with a Color Box green, added (Copic) red berries and used some small dimensional dots under the branches. 

Santa is the main attraction, but I thought he could use a co-attraction. If you wish, please enjoy Kelly Pickler sing "Santa Baby".

Santa would like to enter into Diesrus' Challenge #86 Christmas Carols.

I need to make 2 dozen more cards before Christmas.  I better get busy!   


  1. Oh, my gosh, he's gorgeous! You sent me on a search (just for fun) of PSX Santa stamps. I could just cry that such beautiful stamps are no longer being produced. Love how you've got him in and out of that fabulous frame. The poinsettias, the birds... love the birds. This just WOWs me! The video was super cute and fun. Thanks! Good luck with those 2 dozen Christmas cards!

  2. This is a "WOW" card if ever there was one! Omg! I'm in love with it! It couldn't be more awesome! You need to frame it and hang it on the wall like the masterpiece it is!

  3. WOW! A stunner! I just love how you added so much dimension with the layering of this image. Truly incredible deign. Merry Christmas, Autumn

  6. I'm not sure what adjective would correctly describe this card, but it is captivating and charming. You have brought him to life with your coloring. The tiny birds are beautifully colored too. Like the idea of the raised poinsettias along with the beautiful die used to frame him. You are one talented gal.

  7. This santa is very cool. I like the layering you did and the framing is just beautiful. Very traditional and country feeling Christmas card. Beautifully done!
