Merry Christmouse card


Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs featuring some brand new products.

These products are currently available from Create and Craft TV and go live on the Time For Tea Designs website on Tuesday 26th November.

To start the card I took a piece of white cardstock and the ‘treemendous Christmas’ stencil and used a blender brush to blend Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron over the stencil.

I stamped and coloured the little mouse from the ‘Woodland Critters’ stamp set with my Copic Markers and used the co-ordinating die to cut him out. And gave him a little Santa hat.

I took the ‘Merry’ word die, cutting the outline shadow from the top section from the background panel and also from a piece of white card and the word from red card.

I stamped the Christmas sentiment from the ‘say anything’ stamp set and used the co-ordinating strip die to cut it out.

Next is assembling the card. I took the background panel and adhered it to a card base. Then I attached the mouse and Merry sentiment with liquid glue. I used foam pads to adhere the Christmas sentiment and to complete the card I decorated some of the trees using a black pen and some small gems.

Take care for now.

Elf Christmas card

Hello friends.

I was so thrilled to be selected to be part of the design team for Downland Crafts. I am really looking forward to working with their stamps and card making products.

Now I know it’s only August but the weeks are flying by quickly and the crafting community is starting to plan for Christmas.

Today I wanted to share with you my first card using the Downland Crafts stamp set We Three Elves

To start I used mowed lawn Distress Oxide ink to blend a portion of the card base. I used ‘purple tape’ to mask off the area I wanted to keep white.

I then Spritzed the inked area with water to add some texture.

Next I stamped out the elves using Memento tuxedo black ink on to copic friendly card. I currently use Xpress it blending card. I used my Copics to colour the images. Then cut them out using my Scan N Cut machine.

Next I stamped the sentiment on to the bottom of the green area of the card, (being sure to use a powder tool first) using ‘Emboss’ clear embossing stamp pad. I then sprinkled Ranger princess gold embossing powder over the stamped area and heated it with my heat tool.

I then attached the stamped images to the card. To finish I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to add a bit of sparkle to the stars.

Take a look at the Downland Crafts website there are lots of great stamp sets to get you ready for Christmas card making. My favorites have to be the Christmas jumper and Christmas treats sets.

Take Care for now.
