I have a fall slimline card to share featuring the sweet images from Harvest Mice.

The mice are hanging out in the pumpkin patch enjoying a lovely fall day. These beautiful pumpkin images come from a layering stamp set called Pretty Pumpkins. I used the following ink colors from Altenew for stamping the pumpkins and leaves: Moss, Olive, Parrot, Bamboo, Paper Bag, Caramel Toffee, Warm Sunshine, Buttercream, Marigold Snapdragon, Chamomile, Sunray.

I stamped the mice with Nuvo Hybrid Acorn Brown ink and used Copics to color them.  
Below is a list of all the Copics I used.
  • mice bodies - W0, W2, W4, W6
  • cheeks and ears - R00, R20
  • orange pumpkins - YR21, YR12, YR18
  • cheese - Y21, Y23, Y26
  • teal Sweater - BG01, BG02, BG05
To create the scalloped frame and "hello" die cut, I used a new stand alone die set called Slimline Scalloped Frame.

Spellbinders - Sparkling Christmas Collection

Hello everyone! Are you ready for some Christmas card inspiration? It's never to soon to start preparing for the biggest card sending time of the year.  I have three cards to share today all showcasing new holiday dies from Spellbinders Sparkling Christmas Collection.  You'll find the entire Sparkling Christmas Collection here.

Those of you that follow me, know I'm a big fan of slimline cards. I have created two slimline cards with these fun new dies. For this first card, I created a clean and simple design using the Jolly Ho Ho Ho set.  

The set comes with dies to cut out different designs in the center of the "o" as well as the little ornament topper. I have created the big "Merry Christmas" greeting using dies from the new Christmas Mix & Match Sentiments set.  

Here's another clean and simple slimline design showcasing the new Joyful Christmas Tree set.  

Instead of layering the open die cut tree tiers on top of the solid ones as intended, I stacked them to make a taller tree to fill the space of the card better. The Holiday Greetings is from the Christmas Mix & Match set.  The words in this set die cut straight but I was able to gently bend them and adhere over the tree with a slight curve. 

My final card to share features the Festive Noel set which may be my favorite from the collection.  The large embellished Noel die cut nicely fills the space of a card.
