Merry Christmouse

It’s CHRISTMAS at Craft Your Passion this week!Now’s the chance to join us with any last minute Festive makes!You could be in for the chance to win digi stamps from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps and CoCoDingo!!And please stop by to check out the fabulous DT and GDT’s creations too.

I’ve used Mousy Christmas from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps to create my card.This little cutie has been coloured with Promarkers,had his teeth whitened with an Inssentials gel pen and his eyes,nose and bauble have been given some shine with Glossy Accents.While they were still wet I dropped a gem into the centre for some sparkle.

I chose the die because I thought it had quite an ornamental feel to it and balanced the space on the left by punching 2 holes and tying a bow.The ‘plaque’ the sentiment has been stamped on is from the same die set but I turned it sideways and trimmed the top and bottom off.I distressed all the edges to give a mousy nibbled feel.

Image : Mousy Christmas
Sentiment : Dovecraft Noel Wooden Stamp
Mediums : Promarkers including Metallic Gold on the top of the bauble,Glossy Accents,Inkssential White gel pen,Cottage Ivy Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad

Tools : X-Cut guillotine,Tim Holtz Paper Distresser,Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies Eastern Ovals,Big Shot,1/8” circle plier punch

    Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my “Free and Easy” theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a “copied and pasted” message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday period.
