Christmas Snowmen

is this months Little Claire Stamp Club set !!

And they are adorable and great fun too  !!

How's this for adorable....

Lots of mat and layering,  snowflake embossing,  glitter ( my usual stickles !!),  gems,  coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and finished with some pink ribbon and a bow....

Now a bit of fun.....

I love the smaller accessory stamps as you can make super cards just using them as I have with the cute snowmen border and one of the sentiment stamps.

You just have to smile at these disappearing snowmen don't you.   A simple card with loads of sparkle !!

Christmas really is just round the corner now.......

Peace & Love

is what we all wish for in life, but sadly many don't get either in this world today........

Now cas cards are really hard for me as I just keep building up the layers on mine, but here's a sweet christmas one I've have made using a Pink Gem Design stamp.   As you know I adore owls !!

 Coloured using Spectrum Noir pens, added stickles and some frantage, them made a small tag with a hero art sentiment and finished off with a bow !!

Well it's as clean and simple as I and get it !!

is my favourite time of year, the colours are just wonderful....

And guess what..Autumn/Fall is the next challenge theme for you at House Mouse and Friends !!

Here's my second GDT card,  I 've used a super HMD stamp called "Fall Float"

 My background paper was a piece from my stash which I embossed with a swirly pattern and then inked over it. I then coloured a scrap piece of white card with several distress inks in greens,yellows and pinks and repeat stamped just the leaf and then fussy cut them out. Don't they look real.....

Next I stamped the super cute mouse onto white card, coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens and paper pieced the leaf  and stamped the sentiment. Doesn't show up very well, but I also made a cloud effect round him with a blue distress ink.

Finished off with adding a piece of yellow net ribbon, then made a bow, added a couple of the leaves and a button !!

It's my brother and sister in laws wedding anniversary on Monday, so I've made them this "tweet" card

I love this stamp "You're So Tweet" by Little Claire which I've just stamped and coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. The paper is from a stack by First edition called "Bird Song".
