Merry Mousemas - A Winter Scene

Hi there crafty friends!  It's Cassie, back with another card for you all!  I inked up one of the mice from the adorable Merry Mousemas set and colored him in with alcohol markers.  The background was fun to make because it uses the new Light Me Up Stencil along with some white pigment ink on some navy cardstock.  I love how it looks like a little nighttime winter scene.



If you'd like to see how I made this fun card, you can watch the process here:


Don't forget that you can find this stamp and more at The Rabbit Hole Designs and Simon Says Stamp!

All I Want for Christmas

Hello there!


DTM Michelle here from My Passion for Crafting.  
Today I am sharing a slim line card using the stamp set
This card measures 3 1/2 by 8 1/2. I inked up the card
base with shabby shutter and black soot distress oxide inks.
Than I embossed the background with stars and white embossing powder.
To finish the background I splattered some gold paint. 


I colored the adorable couples with Copic Markers. 
I added some Stickles glitter glue for a hint of shimmer.
All sentiments were embossed with white powder.



Thanks for stopping by today!

Deck the halls!

Hey everyone, DT Member Jammie here wish a fun little card for you to see...
I used the new set from the November release "Love you more" but I modified it just a bit.  I used the image where the two little people are decorating the Christmas tree and changed it just a touch. Take a look:


I placed them at the front stoop of their little apartment decking the halls!  They really should invest in a ladder! I can totally Identify with this girl though, I want to decorate all the things! Lol! 

I hope that this project inspires you and I really hope that you can look at your stamps and make something different out of them, think outside of the box.  I love figuring out different ways to use my stamps, it just makes them so much more versatile.  I cannot wait to see all of the fun things you create with this adorable little stamp set! 

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  Tootles! -Jammie

All I want for Christmas...

Happy Saturday! Charmaine from CharCards here to post my last blog entry for The Rabbit Hole Designs. It has been a blast working with so many incredibly talented people!
I hope you like my last card featuring this beautiful and sweet Love you more Christmas Frost stamp and die set. How appropriate for me to end with a shaker card!

Love you More - Christmas Frost 4x8

This stamp and die set is also available at Simon Say Stamp.




This was a very simple card to make. Basic shaker elements, a little bling and a beautiful stamp. I feel it is necessary to buy the coordinating die as even my Brother Scan N Cut had some difficulty cutting the space in between the lovebirds.



I used Copic markers for the stamp and red and silver mirror card stock for the background. The frame inside is easy to create; MFT carries a metal die set that will cut three different sizes of frames. I used the medium size for the silver frame.
Quick Tip: If you use shakers and want some shakers to stay more to the top instead of all being at their feet, glue some shaker elements with some clear glue. 
Also, don't be afraid of color! See what works. This is what I imagined looking like walking down the streets after shopping!

The new release is around the corner and if you love this couple as much as I do, you don't want to miss it!

Hope to see you around and keep on crafting!
Hugs and Kisses,

Good morning and welcome!
Lisa here and today is my day
on The Rabbit Hole Designs blog and I have
a piggy inspired Christmas card for you!
I just love the November release with the adorable piggies
and cute little mice! They are all ready for winter in their
warm clothes and skiing gear.

Today's card features the sweet little piggie in the santa hat
from the Hoggy Holidays stamp set and I used the 



Here is the card recipe:

1) I started out with a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock and I cut a piece
out using an Embossed Edge Rectangle die.

2) Next I used some removable purple tape to tape down the paper to the 
Candy Twist Stencil. I took an ink blender tool and covered the stencil with
Barn Door Distress Oxide Ink.

3) After the pattern was all inked up I put down a second layer of
Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel to give the panel a whole lot of sparkle!

4) Next I took some white card stock and cut a panel down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
so I could lay it over the stenciled panel with a decorative edge.
I cut the panel down using a Stitched Scalloped Border die for a fancy edge.

5) I stamped my piggie in Copic friendly Gina K Amalgam ink
and did some quick coloring with my Copic markers then cut him

6) I popped him up on foam tape where the decorative edge meets
the stenciled panel and I stamped the sentiment from Hoggy Holidays
at the top of the card in red. I added some red and green sequins 
before and after the sentiment and my card was done.

**for some extra fun I used a Snow Marker to give the hat some fun puffy dimension!



Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed this fun 
Christmas card and that you'll give stenciling a try!
It's so much fun and the glitter gel gives it a whole new dimension!

Merry Pigmas!

Hey everyone! It's Amanda W taking over the blog today! Thanks for joining me with this super fun Merry Pigmas card. I'm just loving the fun new Christmas release, aren't you? So many different images to create that perfect holiday card for so many people in your life.


For this card I took a red panel and embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder and then used Wink of Stella glitter brush on top of the raised snowflakes. Then I added a strip of plaid paper down the middle and edged it with silver strips to offset it. I stamped, colored and cut out my piggy, popping him up on a teal circle and also popped the circle up on the plaid panel. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and cut it into a banner shape popping it up as well. I love what interest all the dimension gives cards.


Finishing touches on this card were very simple, just adding more Wink of Stella on the white parts of the hat and Santa suit. You can see in this close up picture how much glimmer that really gives him. It's super fun!

Here are the products I used:

One Set Wonder - Christmas Frost


Hey crafty friend, it's Amanda from Pear Blossom Press again! It's getting to be the time of year where we have to stretch our crafty pennies, so we can afford all of the gifts and goodies we want to share for the holidays. I thought it would be nice to show you an idea for a Christmas card that is not only quick and easy to recreate, but only uses one stamp set! Just because it's quick and easy doesn't mean that it has to be boring though, right? There's an Action Wobbler under the image, so this card is fun to play with too! See...



For this card, I stamped, embossed, and Copic colored the couple from Love You More - Christmas Frost. I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out, but there are coordinating dies available if you prefer. My background was ink blended directly onto a white card base. I just taped off strips and used makeup brushes to blend on several shades of distress oxide inks. Once the background was dry, I stamped and embossed the sentiment on the left side and popped the image up with a Mini Action Wobbler. To finish the card, I glued sequins on, and added Aqua Shimmer highlights, plus a coat of Diamond Glaze, to his glasses and the star. After the Diamond Glaze was dry, I added white reflections to the glasses, star, and top of the tree. Easy peasy, and fast!

If you have children that like to craft with you, it would be sweet to let the kids color the images while you ink blend the backgrounds. That way the whole family gets to help! I don't know about you, but I cherish the cards I've received that were obviously made by children. Don't forget to have them sign the backs too!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you to create a few one-set-wonder cards yourself! If you'd like to see more inspiration using this stamp set, you might like this article, or this one. You can also find the sister article to this post on my blog today, with links to the specific products I used. I'll be back soon with another fun card to share.

All I want for Christmas

Hello everyone! DTM Shanna here today with a card featuring The Rabbit Hole Design‘s new release for November, Hoggy Holidays! I love making non-traditional Christmas cards, and the presents image in this set was just perfect for a rainbow card!!  (any excuse for a rainbow right?!?)



I started by making a watercolored background for my presents by ink smooshing a rainbow of distress inks across a piece of watercolor paper.  I let the dry and then actually stenciled over it with Ranger Transparent Texture paste using the Diamond Flower stencil from TRHD.  The end result was quite pretty, but silly me ended up covering most of the stencil work with the card elements.  So here is a close up I took on my phone of the scrap so you could see how pretty the stencil work turned out.

Next I stamped out a bunch of the presents and colored them with my Zig markers, sticking to the colors of the rainbow. I lined them all up across the watercolored background in rainbow order, adhering with foam tape.


I chose a split card design for this card, die cutting 2 panels to adhere to my card base with foam tape above and below my stamped images.  The accent makes it look like the presents are *floating* in the negative space between the panels.  Kinda fun!!


Here is the full stamp set, isn't it cute??  




That wraps up my post for today, I will be back next week for another trip down The Rabbit Hole!  Until then you can find me over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness or over on Instagram

Hoggy Holidays - Believe

Hello there crafty friends!  It's Cassie here on the blog for the first time and I'm sooooo excited!  I got the chance to ink up this cutie patootie pig from Hoggy Holidays and colored him in with alcohol markers.  The background was so super fun to make, because I pulled out the new Light Me Up Stencil and did a little ink blending onto some dark cardstock.  For a last bit of embellishment I used some fun Christmas sequins.


He's so fun all dressed up in his Christmas outfit, isn't he?!  He makes you want to squeal doesn't he, lol?

Whoooo Needs Coffee???


Hello & welcome!!

I have always loved Owls, and the Caffeinated Owl is one of my favorite critters! I started my card by masking off a 2-ish inch section on my card base and ink blended some distress oxides in a nice fall palette. I watercolored the owl using my Zig markers. Isn't he cute and under-caffeinated?? There is a coordinating die that can be used to cut him out, but I used my scan n' cut. Then the card was easily finished by mounting the owl with some foam tape and it was done!!
