Clean and Simple Fall Leaves

A very simple CAS (Clean and Simple) made with my alcohol inks sprayed with alcohol on glossy paper for the background and then some water colored leaves that I did a while ago. Stamped sentiment from Stampabilities.

House Mouse Christmas and an ATC

I had made a pile of die cut leaves and thought this might be a good place to add a couple. This stamp is from Stampendous and it features a House Mouse and is called Berrying Gifts.

Fall Float House Mouse

This morning, I was playing with my Copics. I scribbled on my craft sheet, using this tutorial from Split Coast Stampers, and some photo sheets that I get every time I buy new printer ink. I never print out photos, so I have lots. On the one I chose to use (the one on the right), I stamped some flowers with black Momento Ink before I cut it to size for my card.
Then, I grabbed one of my House Mouse stamps for fall, called Fall Float and went from there.

I had a silk leaf that I added as well.

I used the layout from Mojo Monday. I really didn't have room for a second sentiment though as my mouse is kind of tiny :)

Swan Girl and a Tangled Sunset

This image was a free one from ppinkydolls. What cute little girls she has available. The colors I chose were from the color inspiration given for the Friday color Outlawz challenge this week. Also entered into Crafting from the Heart.

I added some tangles to this sunset for this image with the prompt from the movie "Six Days and Seven Nights". (Do note that I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher.) This was for Sunday's CAS from the Outlawz. The palm trees just came with the paper :)

Christmas Gifts from a House Mouse

I had so much fun making this card using one of my House Mouse stamps from Stupendous. I used my spray gun to do the green on the raised flower that is holding a package, and on the circle so they would match. I also fussy cut the mouse and added some embossed "snow". I did some paper piecing with the packages adding one more to the grouping. The top of the mouse and the flower and the gift are each raised with foam squares.

Just for a Girl

This cute little girl is from Little Miss Muffet. I used more colors, below, than I think I have ever used before. I tried to get some of the balloon overlap, but not as successfully as I would have liked.  I fussy cut the top balloons of the image and raised them with foam squares.

Trick or Tweet from Stupendous House Mouse and a Halloween Cat for the Outlawz

Well, it's that time of the year. I have a couple of relatives that just live for Halloween so I thought I would do this adorable stamp from House Mouse/Stupendous. This was a bit of a challenge to color with Copic because some of the little critters were soooo small. But, by holding my breath, I got it done! This card, because of the colors, allowed me to use some of the papers I had made a while back. Too bad I can't remember how I did them LOL! I also used a few of my own melted beads for dots. The card base is a craft brown even though it looks kind of green here. And, I finally found some of those little wooden easels to use to hold my card upright for photos.

Copic Colors Used

This card is for the Outlawz CAS (Clean and Simple), color our world, and I used most of the same colors. I didn't use all of them but didn't introduce any new ones for this Hampton Arts Halloween Cat and spooky spider. I had the paper so I simply covered the whole front of a card with that and I cut out an extra cat so it could go over the spider paper.

Outlawz Friday Coloring Challenge with Little Miss Muffett Claudia Loves Christmas Bear Stamp

The Outlawsz Friday Coloring Challenge added a teddy bear to the mix. I had this cute little bear from Little Miss Muffett, Claudia Loves Christmas, that was just waiting to be colored. I also have been hankering to do more quilling, so, if you use your imagination you can see a Christmas tree LOL!
Copic Colors Used
Red and I don't always play nice together, but this time I am happy with the blending and that the red decided to stay, for the most part, inside the lines. The reds that I have seem to be the most juicy and always want to go wherever they want to go :) I also added some texture to the bear with Copic blender on a piece of foam.

House Mouse Knitters Card

My friend is having a birthday in a few days. We met because we are both knitters. I couldn't pass up this House Mouse stamp from Stupendous to make a card that would be special. I embossed the button band.
