Stampin Up Merry Mice Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Happy Thursday and Happy Blog Hop to each of you.  Today we had a color challenge and my mind is so geared up in the Christmas spirit I decided to make these unconventional  colors work for another Christmas card.


Here is the sketch:


Stampin Up Merry Mice:

I made my card into a Z fold.  the left hand side of the card opens into a Z, this adds some fun in opening the card.

The Mouse:  I stamped the image with the Merry Mice stamp in Staz on Black.  With my blender pens I colored in the mouse with Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim, Daffodil delight and Real Red inks.  After I was done coloring him in I used my smokey slate ink and did some outlining to add shadow and depth to the image.  The Stars were added with Dapper Denim using the stamp from the Star of Light stamp set.

The Sentiment:  Emerald Envy ink and  the coordinating  stamp were used to stamp the sentiment.  I also added more stars in Dapper Denim.

Everything was adhered with fast fuse adhesive.  Can you believe I did not put any bling on my card this time?  I think this might be a first!  I have to mix things up every one in awhile, LOL
