Cuddly & Warm

I hope you all had a very nice and warm weekend....I know I did!  Our weather was perfect.....we had on and off rain, clouds and blue skies, with temperatures of 65 for the high.  It was time to "finally" pull out my cozy warm sweat pants and sweaters.

For this card, I used a House-Mouse stamp called "cuddly & warm", stamped it onto Copic X-press it blending card paper using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  I colored the image using Copic markers and finished it off by adding Liquid Applique to each of their Santa hats along with Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamond glitter.  Using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large,  I cut out the image and layered onto a piece of Basic Grey paper from the Wassail collection, (which by the way is what I used as my designer paper for this card) that I cut out using the Spellbinder Nestabilities Lacey Circles.  The snowflakes are from the Martha Stewart punch Alpine Snowflake, which I covered with glitter and added a button to each.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set called Holiday Sayings.

Thank you for stopping by!

Warm Hello!

I hope everyone had a very fun & safe Halloween!  It was quite a busy evening for us! 

I'm very excited that it's finally starting to feel like Fall around here.  Our weather will be cooling down dramatically this week, and I think that is what has inspired me to kick off the first of November with these cozy mice!  I think the little mice with the hat and booties is just too cute.  I used this House-Mouse stamp called Warmth for Winter and colored the image using Copics.  The pattern paper is from a 6" x 6" Jillibean Soup mini pad called Dutch Mustard Soup.  The sentiment came from a Hero Arts set called messages.  I love the way this card turned out.  The final card size is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".

Thank you for stopping by!
