Sneak Peek: Merry Mice Woodland Card


Hi Friends! Thank you for your recent comments - it thrills me to bits and pieces to know that I have so many wonderful regular blog readers, and I really appreciate YOU!  Soooo, I have had a lot on the go lately, hence the reason I haven't posted for over a week. But today I hope to make up for that with a super cute card featuring the new "Merry Mice" stamp set, coming out in the Holiday Catalogue (available tomorrow!).

 I think these cards turned out really sweet.

This is the first card I made with "Merry Mice". I used Lovely as a Tree stamp on top of the inked Woodland Embossing Folder prior to running it through the Big Shot. Just a heads up about inking this particular folder. There are quite a few ways you can do it (look on pinterest), such as using a brayer, using ink pads directly onto the folder (make sure they're not too wet), or using a sponge, like I did in the video. So far I prefer using the sponge to add ink to the Woodland Folder. But I plan to play with it some more and experiment with techniques, so stand by for that....

This is the card I demonstrated in my video. It's hard to see, but the belly and face are puffed out a bit, like I did to the pillows in my earlier post with the "Sitting Here" stamp set. Soooo fun. The white mica flakes really add a neat element to the card as well - the photos don't do the cards justice. This set is really fun to play with; today's cards are the first ones I've made with it.  I can't wait to create more projects with "Merry Mice"! 

I hope you enjoy the video!

Sitting Here Card


Hi Friends. Yesterday I FINALLY had time to play with the new "Sitting Here" stamp set that came out in July. With so much going on I hadn't had a chance to pull it out and get creative, but now that I have, I can't wait to stamp with it some more! This set is very versatile and can be used to make quick and simple cards, as well as a more elaborate, detailed ones like I've made:

 
Because it was a rainy, dreary day, I decided to spend a little more time on this card - which is why my video is a tad longer than usual. But I hope you'll enjoy it and be sure to get this stamp set if you don't already have it - it's awesome!
