Release Day FUN - Santa Claus is Coming To Town!

Hi Sweeties!  Welcome to the BIG Release Day Party at Paper Sweeties today!  I'm so excited to finally be able to share EIGHT amazing and fun holiday themed stamp sets with you all today!  I hope you fall in love with them all as much as I have!!

So ... without further ado ... I have the sweetest project to share today!  It's a 3-D holiday scene I created using four *new* sets mixed with three older sets!  Ready, set ... here we GO :)

Debuting *new* sets:
Santa Claus
Naughty or Nice?
O' Christmas Tree
Stand Add-on 4

And current sets:
Sweeties Stand

Jake and Sophie as Santa and Mrs. Claus!

And the perfect little Christmas tree for Santa's workshop!

Refreshments for Santa and all the elves after a long day's work making toys!

And Mrs. Claus is offering kisses for Santa for a job well done!

I dressed Sophie as Mrs. Claus using the nightgown outfit from Naughty or Nice?  Jake is dressed as Santa using the Santa Claus stamp set - complete with his pack of toys for the children!  All three pieces were stamped onto patterned paper for easy and quick assembly - no coloring required!  The 'Mistletoe' sign stand is made from a small wooden spool that I painted with Twill paint and then wrapped a snipett of polka dotted Washi tape around the middle.

I stamped the awning and bottom of the Sweeties Stand onto more patterned papers, cut out and adhered to the base of the stand.  I lightly colored the open part of the stand with blue pastel chalk to create 'sky'.  The refreshments, mistletoe and wreath were stamped and colored ... and then I added red Stickles to create berries on the mistletoe!  A gold glittered star was punched and added to the top of the sweet tree ... tree base was colored with red Prisma pencils and Gamsol - love them!!

The toys in Santa's pack were colored with Prisma pencils and Gamsol ... a little smidge of sugary glitter added to create some sparkle!  The tiny polka dots on the sack and Santa's outfit are sparkly too -- so sweet and fun!  Love, love ... LOVE this sweet little scene :)

So there you have it my crafty friends!  This sweet scene is set up on a shelf in my home already so I can walk by it daily and SMILE!  What do you think??
