The Background paper is Glossy Card stock I ran through the Cuddle Bug with the Snowflake embossing folder. It's coloured with SU Bayou Blue Ink first by sponging and the by rubbing the ink pad across the the entire piece which really brought out the snowflakes. I then sponged a narrow strip of glossy card stock with Bayou Blue ink and stamped Penny Black sentiment stamp along the edges and layered it onto a piece of Bayou Blue card stock and attached to the card front.
The Mouse is is stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock, watercolored, cut out and mounted with pop dots. The snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart craft punch. I added the dots with a teal pen and a dab of stickles in the center each except the one the mouse is holding which I thought needed a little extra something. So I added glitter to the whole snowflake and a gem to the center. Thanks for looking.

The background paper is from Best Creation Inc. and comes with the sparkles already on the paper. I stamped the Penny Black image on card stock water coloured it and popped it up with foam dots. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the background paper. I didn't have white Staz On to stamp the white snowflakes onto the acetate so I used white pigment ink and embossed it with white embossing powder (careful not to melt the acetate). I punched holes through the card front and acetate and attached it altogether with ribbon.
You can't really tell from the picture but because the mice were popped up and the snowflakes are on the acetate layer the card has a real depth to it.
Thanks for looking! Have a great Sunday!

Just a quick post to show you what I worked on this weekend. I used sketch #25 from Friday Sketchers . I used some new paper I purchased at Scrapbook Swede Its by Kaiserscrapbook. Its really out of my usual color range but I'm happy with the result. Sometimes its good to step out of your comfort zone.
I used a Penny Black image and added bling for the lights. The JOY stamp was a dollar store find and the sentiment is a Penny Black clear stamp. Thanks for looking!
Also would like to thank everyone who left comments, I've enjoyed looking at all of your blogs!

Found a neat card on Splitcoast Stampers that used a quilted effect for the background and thought that I would give it a try.
I used Daisy Bucket paper, Penny Black stamp, Prima Flowers, and SU Old Olive cardstock.
Thanks for looking, have a great Friday!

The weather was so cold and nasty last weekend that it was a good day to cozy up and make a Christmas card, if you can believe it. Not a normal June activity!. It came out kind of Folk Artsy. One of those cards you can't decide whether you like or not and then it kind of grows on you.Thanks for looking!

Finally some spring like weather! Time to haul out the spring colours. I just love this Stampin' Up set (Hedgehog Happiness) these little guys always bring a smile to my face.
I managed to stamp four for different occasions this last friday at Carol's crop night. Didn't have a Flower shape the right size so I used the slit punch scallop technique around a circle surprise it actually worked.
