and

Each one of these beautifully drawn stamps will be a great asset to your stamping collection or they’d make a great gift for someone who loves to create!

Today I decided to feature one of my favs of the five, the Action Santa stamp set.  I just adore both of those movin’ and groovin’ Santas that Marcella has created.  They’re just adorable!

Since Santa delivers his gifts at night, I thought a night scene was in order…
I just love the subtle glow of the street lights on his face and scooter!  I created the night sky on a piece of water colour paper and used a variety of Ranger Distress Inks to get a galaxy effect.

Now come and check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has created to share with you using this fabulous new holiday stamp sets…
