I used the DSP and DWT from Candy Cane Lane and Stamps from Merry Mice and Paisleys and Posies to make my own gingerbread house card! I can’t begin to describe the process behind this one. Just let my imagination go! I won’t be posting over the weekend as I will be at On Stage live and will be getting the first peeks at the Spring catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure which won’t be available to non demonstrators until January! I’m extremely excited but can’t share anything until Stampin’ Up! gives us the go ahead and let the sneak peeks begin. So until Monday have a nice weekend!
Ok it’s back to Christmas! There are really not a lot of day’s until Christmas! So I got my Merry Mice set out to start back at it on a super fun and happy note. I used two pieces of the This Christmas DSP put it facing one way for the front and reversed it for the matte. I also used garden green and very vanilla for card stock. Basic Black Archival ink for the mouse and Stampin’ Write markers to colour. Then garden green ink for the sentiment and to complete the look Candy Cane Lane DWT for behind the sentiment. Tomorrow my new order is going in and I’ve planned some fun projects for when that arrives!!! That includes a bit of non Christmas stuff so for those of you who don’t understand why Christmas starts in July for crafters I’m going to provide some non holiday related stuff once my order arrives. Wish me luck customs has been delaying my shipments a bit lately they are very concerned about stamps of mass destruction. And if you could see the disaster of my studio you would actually probably agree customs has a point there! Lol!!!!
Ok so just one more Merry Mice card! I couldn’t help myself they are just that cute!!! I kept the Stampin’ Write colouring simple on this one. I just felt it needed to be enough but not too much. I used the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF for the background. The main colour of the card is Sahara Sand with a touch of Night of Navy card stock the card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock. I used pacific point ink for the sentiment. Finally I embellished with Candy Cane Lane DWT. I’m ordering a bunch of Designer Washi Tape for my October order! Yes I’m just that in love with it!!!!
Another card featuring Merry Mice one of my favourite things about the Merry Mice stamp set is the fact it’s just so relaxing to colour and fun too!!! I used my Stampin’ Write markers to colour. I also used Warmth and Cheer DSP and Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape. The card stock is real red and garden green as well as whisper white to stamp the mice on and to make the card base. Finally I embellished it with 3 gold stars from the Metallic Shapes. I’m falling in love with washi tape as it’s so easy to work with and makes the card so much more fun!!!
I’m playing with in colours with the holiday catalog. This one features the bundle Cookie Cutter Christmas, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon plus the in colours card stocks Flirty Flamingo and Cucumber Crush. Also I’ve used card stock in Crumb Cake and Real Red.
