Santa Mouse

The new challenge at Winter Wonderland is 'Embossing - Wet or Dry' (I've gone for the 'dry' option). We are sponsored by The Stamping Studio who are offering the lucky winner one image from each of their artists.

This is a scheduled post as we're still on holiday in Cali in Pembrokeshire.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: The Stamping Studio 'Santa Mouse Pre-Coloured' Digi
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Squares Large' and Lacy Squares
Embossing: Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares', Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Red matt, white silk
Other: Spray and Sparkle, Computer generated sentiment 'Kirsten ITC' font

I embossed a piece of white card, before trimming it to a square, layering it onto red card and attaching it to the card blank.  I resized the pre-coloured digi stamp and added the sentiment. The image was die-cut and embossed before being sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  This was then layered onto a die cut and embossed Lacy Square.  The image was attached to the centre of the card with foam tape so it stood away from the embossed background.

Merry Christmas Penguins

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Yellow (a little or a lot)' and I've gone for the 'lot' option!  This is my last card for a couple of weeks as we're going on holiday tomorrow with Cali.

I'm entering the Holly and Ivy Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes', Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Merry Christmas Penguins' Mini Masterpieces
Dies: Cheery Lynn 'Snowflakes Set 2'
Card: Brown Matt
Paper: Making Cards 'Launching Christmas' (magazine freebie)
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella, gold nailhead

I layered the paper onto brown card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the square, pre-coloured image into a rectangle, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the centre.  I highlighted the penguins with a Wink of Stella and added Diamond Stickles to the snowline.  To finish I added a die cut snowflake to the corner with a gold nailhead in the centre.
