Here Comes the Santa Train!

I just had to try something new! It's still fall & I am itching to make some fall things! However, I decided to ink up a new JLO stamp set - Santa Train!

Jessica sent me this very cute, detailed Santa Train stamp set. I figured it would be great for scrapping my DS Christmases from when he was younger! I'm thinking if I'm going to do this much detailed coloring...I'm gonna make it on something I'm gonna KEEP!

I'm really very happy with how this page turned out.

Creative Details: Stamped in the lower left corner is Jessica Lynn Original's Santa Train! What a cute detailed stamp. I colored this with Copic markers. All the holly & berries, the bow and the "25", I covered with the Glaze Pen. Other things, like the Christmas Tree, the reindeer antlers, the elves' hats, I covered with At You Spica Glitter pens from Copic. DP at the top was torn using the SU! Tearing Edge. DP is from Paper Pizazz. Titling is Tidy Alphabet and Tidy Numbers in Brocade Blue on PTI White. Matting is Brocade Blue & Night of Navy. The small photos are mounted with pop dots.

As I mentioned before, these are very detailed stamps. I did use a magnifying glass to see the details more clearly as I colored. It was like being in a doll house. The details are amazing - from the Santa, Christmas Tree and fireplace on the caboose to the cute elves peeking out of the first car!
