Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Christmas card with Cable Knit embossing folder

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Christmas card with Cable Knit embossing folder

This is the last card featuring the Merry Mice stamp set. For this little chap I've gone back to an Aqua Painter to colour him in. 

I've also used the beautiful Cable Knit embossing folder for the background mat. It really does give such a deep embossed card.

I've kept it simple, just using the Layering Circles framelits to mount the mouse, and some silver foil card behind.

One of the things I like best about this stamp set is that you can use all of the stamps. Usually there are some stamps that I don't use, or use less, but every stamp in this set, including the sentiments, are great.

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Christmas card with Softly Falling embossing folder

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice with Softly Falling embossing folder

This is the second card in my mini-series using the Merry Mice stamp set. Isn't this little singing mouse lovely? 

I've used Kraft cardstock for the card base, and water colour paper for the image and to emboss on. I didn't really want the Kraft cardstock to show in the middle of the card so I used a piece of silver foil card between the two pieces of watercolour card.

This time instead of Aqua Painters I used the Blender pens - available in a set of three they last forever, and I think give a deeper colour.

The little mouse lent himself to the oval layering framelits because of his shape. And then I added the sentiment along the bottom.

Stampin' Up! Pootler's Blog Hop - Merry Mice card withe Cable Knit embossing folder




Stampin' Up! Merry Mice card with Cable Knit embossing folder

Today's post is part of the Pootler's blog hop - you can make your way round the hop by clicking on the Next and Previous buttons below.

I've used the Merry Mice stamp set to make this card - I love it! I have three cards to show you over the next week, all made using one of the three main mice stamps.

I stamped the mice onto watercolour paper and then used an Aqua Painter and ink pads to colour them in. I just cut an oblong panel out to begin with but thought that looked too plain, so I used the largest of the Lots of Labels thinlit dies to make the ends a bit more interesting.

Isn't the background layer fabulous? It's made with the new Cable Knit embossing folder. It's called a Dynamic embossing folder because it's deeper and thicker than usual to give and extra dimension to the embossing. 


I have seen this embossing folder used as tyre tracks and made into a cardigan card too, so there are lots of possibilities.

Stampin' Up! Foxy Friends card in a box 50th birthday card

Stampin' Up! Foxy Friends card in a box 50th birthday card

I have made a lot of these card in a box cards recently, and they have proved to be very popular, so I have more lined up too!

This card I made for my friend Sue who was 50 recently. She loves cats so that gave me a perfect excuse to use the Foxy Friends stamp set and punch to make a card with a fox and a couple of cats. 

I've used the A Little Foxy DSP for the sides of the card. The toadstools and leaves I stamped and fussy cut, and the tree stumps that they are all sitting on too.

I love that you can make so many different animals with this set, there are several different faces and bodies to change things around a little. Don't forget too that the stamp set and punch are available as a bundle with a 10% discount.

The numbers I die cut out of gold glimmer paper using the Large Number Framelits.

Don't forget that until the end of July you get vouchers to use on orders in August. So, for every €60/£45 you spend you get a voucher for €6/£4.50 to spend in August. If you decided to buy the Thoughtful Branches bundle for example - a limited edition bundle in August - you could use your voucher/s on that. Or the Foxy Friends bundle, or anything else.

If you live in France, the UK, the Netherlands, Austria or Germany I'd love it if you shopped with me. Just click on the link on the right of my page to go to my shop. Or feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
