LotV Christmouse Holly

Lili of the Valley has done it again and released a bunch of cute Christmas stamps! This time, however, they are also available as clear stamps! They have so many new and exciting things happening and it’s fun to watch! I’ve been a fan of their work since I started crafting ten years ago. The stamp I’ve used for my project is called Christmouse Holly and is available as both clear stamp and digital stamp. The sentiment is from the Swirly Festive Greetings set.

I’ve made a simple card with a Maja Design background paper, a circle die and some chipboard snowflakes.

Cupcake mouse

Here is the blog post for the card I made using the colouring from the video I posted earlier this week. You can find the video here.

I’ve used a stripe from one of the papers in one of MFT Stamps paper pads, the mouse and cupcake stamp are also MFT. Then I’ve die cut a number 3 (also MFT) and coloured it up in a matching green colour before die cutting a happy, embossing a birthday and sing three different types of washi tape to make a fun background for the sentiment area. I’ve also drawn a whimsical border in around the coloured panel. All in all, a fun card to make! I enjoyed making a different kind of card when using kraft and coloured pencils for a change.

RAM Birthday Mouse

Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studio released some adorable celebration stamps in March and I have coloured up one of them, Birthday Mouse, for today’s card.

I wanted a fun and colourful card, so got out a distress oxide ink, some altenew ink, a background stamp and various dies from MFT Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Papirdesign. I stuck with the colour scheme from the coloured image.

Copics used: RV00, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, V12, V15, V17, V09, YG21, YG23, YG17, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, E74, E79, W0, W1, W3, W5, N0, N3

Friends decorating the tree

From tomorrow I should be able to get the posts up a bit earlier in the day again. This is what happens when you don’t have time to schedule up any, and write them all up on the day they go live! For this card I’ve used stamps from MFT Stamps, paper by Maja Design and a Papirdesign text stamp. Simple, but fun card!

I haven’t really got the time to list all the Copic Markers I used today, but if there’s a combination you’d like to know, just ask me!

Animal fun – Tiddly Inks blog hop

It’s blog hop time! Tiddly Inks is hosting a blog hop to introduce the new temporary DT that I joined last month and some guest designers are taking part also.

Don’t forget to visit each person’s blog or those in the Inlinkz list and leave a comment – there are great prizes to be won and you’ll find freebies, too! You can find all the details here.

I decided to mix and match a few of the stamps. The cat, hat, presents and text stamps were fun to put together for this CAS card. I think they are perfect for fun party cards! You can find the various stamp sets here.

And guess what! The amazingly talented Christy has let me put one of her stamps on here for you all to download for free! How great is that?!

Simply click on the photo (it should open in a new tab for you so you get it full size), then right-click the image and choose save picture as, the image is called fun animal party. Then you can print it out and colour it up like you usually do. Don’t forget, as always, you may not upload the uncoloured image to share on your site.
