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.
I’m really pleased with how this turned out!!! It’s almost all composed with the Paisleys and Posies suite except for the leaves and the festive flower builder punch. I’m going to briefly leave off Thanksgiving cards for my next few posts just because I’m excited about some of my Christmas sets and have made some cards with them, plus I made a super easy but elegant all occasions friendship card this weekend I’m excited to show and that basically covers this week. So stay tuned for a fun week. Hint: expect some mice to invade my page!!!!
I’m truly not knowing where to start explaining this card it combines a lot of different elements from the holiday catalog and the annual catalog including some Halloween stuff I bought to make Thanksgiving cards, which I have decided to do a few days or weeks of. From the holiday catalog I used the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and coordinating DSP on the maple leaf and the sentiment. And some Halloween stuff like the Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper on the oak leaf and the back matte, the Halloween night Specialty DSP for the background and a few of the Halloween night enamel dots to embellish. I also used the gold Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine trio which is part of the Festive Season Suite also for embellishment. From the annual catalog came the main feature of this card the Leaflets framelits and a stamp from the Vintage Leaves set. Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock and finally the ink is Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. It sounds complicated but was actually an easy card to make.
