Elzybells Challenge #5

Elzybells Chllenge #5 was to use black, white and another colour. I love this kind of challenge as black and pink tend to be my colours of choice for cards (and clothes), but I wanted to do a Christmas card using my new uninked Elzybells stamps. I came up with this cute little mouse fast asleep waiting for Santa to bring lots of micey goodies. I'm not sure mice are black (other than Mickey and Minnie of course), but he looks so cute against the red and white that I left him.

It's hard to see in the photo but the top half of the card is glitter card embossed with the cuttlebug snowflakes folder. I also layered the top part of the hat on dimensionals so as to give it a bit more of a 3D look and added some white flock for a furry feel to the hat's edge and bobble.

High Hopes challenge #3

High Hopes Stamps set challenges on their blog every Sunday and I try to do them when I get the chance. The only rules other than those set by the actual challenge is to use High Hopes Stamps, which gives me a great excuse to buy some more every month or so. Being in the UK limits how much we can import before we get charged with highly expensive customs charges, so I tend to order about $30 worth of stamps at a time. If you haven't seen them before you MUST check out their website http://www.highhopesstamps.com/ - they have the cutest little stamps!!

Anyway challenge #3 was to use stitching on your card. Now I can't sew at all and don't own a sewing machine, so I had to use faux stitching on this little notecard.


Stamps - Dunno Duck and sentiment both from High Hopes Stamps, faux stitching stamp from Hot Off The Press

Paper - SU love notes in Whisper White, Groovy Guava DP from SU, Barely Banana and non-SU white cardstock

Inks - Versafine Onyx Black, Copic Ciao Markers in E35 Chamois, E33 Sand, E31 Brick Beige, Y15 Cadmium Yellow, YR02 Light Orange and YR04 Chrome Orange
