A Mice Time To Party

Hello everyone. The Alphabet Challenge is celebrating 10 years of challenges – 10 years!!!!! I’m a veritable new-comer to this challenge – only being around on the DT since August 2019 – but I’m certainly in the mood for celebrating.

As we have reached the letter ‘P’, we want to see your ‘Party’ themed creations. Here is my card:

I seem to be stuck in the slim line, die-cutting, Copic colouring, scene creating genre – but I do like creating these types of cards. There is so much room to play with.

Using MFT ‘It’s A Mice Time’ stamps and matching dies, coloured in Copics – I knew I wanted to use ALL the images from this set – I then turned to creating the scene. I used a lot of die-sets from Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn – and it took me quite a while to figure things out – but here we have it.

I am quite pleased with the end product – a joyful celebration to be had.

Hopefully, at some time in the near future we can all celebrate together – fingers crossed!

Come along and celebrate with us – there’s a lot of party themed creations from the Design team – I look forward to seeing what you create in our gallery. xx

Butterflies

Hi there. I have a couple of cards to share today using the same Simon Say Stamp ‘Beautiful Butterflies‘ stamp and die set.

The card on the left is my version of the slim line card. I stamped the butterfly in Distress Oxide ‘Peacock Feathers’ for a solid impression. I was going to colour the white parts in – but decided it looked good as it was.

The layers are using Mama Elephant slim line dies with the white water-colour piece splattered with the same blue Distress Oxide and I think Fossilized Amber – wanting a teal and yellow splattering going on – and a Lawn fawn grey card as a contrast layer.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I chose to give someone some encouragement with a recent promotion.

The second card:

I stamped the images with Lawn Fawn inks – Carrot and Fake Tan – which give fabulous coverage, by the way – then cut them out with the matching die set.

The circle is a piece of a stenciled background I made a week or so ago with Lawn Fawn ‘Starry Sky‘ stencil and white paste, die cut with a stitched circle die.

The sentiment is from a magazine freebie, and stamped onto a spare piece of water-colour card which I splattered the same two Lawn Fawn inks onto, cut into a strip, then that strip cut with the same circle die so it was the correct length, and had some stitching to it.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
