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!!!
The next three days I will be featuring my newest stamp set from the 2016 Holiday Catalog: Merry Mice. These are really fun as I get to colour with my Stampin Write markers. I used the retired dies Oval Framelits because I haven’t yet bought the new Oval dies which are nice because they replace having to buy a whole bunch of oval punches. So I do plan on getting it. Meanwhile I make do. The background is from the This Christmas DSP the whole card base is watermelon wonder card stock and its embellished with Wild Wasabi enamel shapes. Merry Christmouse yeah I know it’s September but I’m chomping at the bit to be able to give out all my Christmas cards.
