Ready for Christmouse? Fun Stenciling Tutorial

Welcome back to today's blog!  Are you "Ready for Christmouse?"  It is never too early to start creating your holiday cards.  I love this fun little mouse  with his ski poles from the Merry Mousemas stamp set.  The fun snowy night background for this fun holiday card is created by using the Slice of Christmas stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs Christmas in July Release. 

 I colored this fun holiday mouse with Spectrum Noir Triblend markers.  I colored his furry little body using the Brown Grey Shades and Brown Grey Blends alcohol markers.  I used Pale Pink Shades and  Pale Pink Blends for his tail, feet/hands, ear and cute tiny nose.  His scarf and hat are colored in a festive red and green for his holiday outing.  I used the coordinating die to cut him out.

I am excited to share how  you can use this Slice of Christmas stencil to create this holiday scene.  For the background, I am using a piece of  4" x 5 1/4" piece of deep purple cardstock.  I used my Cotton Tail blending brushes for the blending.  I started the top of the card front with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.  I used the icicle  part of the Slice of Christmas stencil to create the trees in the back ground using Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. I used the snow bank part of the stencil to create 4 layers of snow drifts down the remaining card front with  Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink.  I used my heat gun to help the ink dry quicker.   I lastly added the trees from the stencil using Victorian  Velvet and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink  

I stamped the "Merry Christmouse" sentiment  it the top left area of the card front with clear pigment  ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I Used Opaque White Silk to add the falling snow.  I attached the card front to a white A2 card base and popped up the mouse on the lower right area of the card.

Santa Tag

Hi, it's Lisa here from Oh So Cute By Lisa and today I have a Christmas tag that I created using the new stamp set released by The Rabbit Hole Designs called Kringle. I started off by die cutting the largest tag from a stitched scalloped tag die in white card stock.
For the background of the tag I used the Candy Twist Stencil and some Nuvo Glacier Paste in Golden Era. While the Nuvo paste was drying it was time to prepare Mr. Kringle for the tag.
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored him in with my Copic Markers.
My Scan n Cut did a great job of cutting him out and for some extra added fun I added some fun white puff to his hat and hems with a snow pen. 
(It's hard to see in the pic but in real life it's a fun effect!)

Once the tag was completely dry I die cut HO HO HO from red glitter paper and adhered it down the right side leaving room on the left for Old Saint Nick. He got popped up on foam tape and the only thing left to do was to add ribbon and bakers twine to the top of the tag.

I just love how this tag turned out and how much fun it was to make!

Glimmery Shimmery Candy

Hey yall!  Happy Friday!  Tangii here with another creation from the July release! I hope you've had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend!  Every time I look at the Candy Twist Die I keep thinking "shaker"... so here we go!

I started off embossing some paper with red, green and silver glitters.  I used a Cotton Tail Blending Brush for covering the paper with the embossing ink.  Next I used the Candy Twist Die in all 3 sections.  I used the frames of the red and green only, the silver was just to give me a few wedges for filling in.

With all of that done, I adhered the glittery pieces to my acetate, and adding a red frame around (to cover my foam tape frame).  I shook out some sprinkles on to the acetate and then adhered the backing.

Finally I added a sentiment from the Christmas Frost stamp set and popped it up.

All of the items I linked in my post are available at The Rabbit Hole Designs.

Happy Pawlidays

We are still celebrating Christmas in July!  
I am sharing a card today that features "Pawlidays"  
and some fun ways to use sequins on a card.

To make this card, I started with an alcohol ink  background.  
I put mojito, ember and dijon on a foam pad with a drizzle of blending solution and dabbed the paper letting them blend together using a blower to move them on the Yupo paper.  
While that dried, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the dog image.

I embossed the sentiment from the set with red embossing powder on vellum and matted it on gold paper.  Next, I decorated the stamped with with LOTS of sequins.  I chose tiny ones for the garland and bigger ones for the ornaments.  I hung tiny candy canes on the dog's antlers and added candy twist embellishments around the sentiment.  I used double-sided tape to adhere the sentiment and foam tape to adhere the dog image.  I matted the top panel on cardstock I inked with green ink. I chose a special sequin for the dog's collar.

Christmas Wrap with See Through Shaker Tag

Hi everyone! Lauren here today and I and excited to share the creation I created for the super fun collaboration with Doodles Paper playground! I love using stamps to make gift wrap and the trees from The Rabbit Hole Designs new Kringle stamp set are perfect for this.

To make this pretty holiday paper, I used plain white craft wrap I found at my local craft store. I randomly stamped the large and small trees over the paper with Distress Oxide ink in Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles.
Next, I used metallic gold ink on the word "HO" and randomly stamped that all over. The metallic link takes a bit longer to dry, so make sure it is completely dry or it will smudge.
Once it has dried, I splattered Pine Needles over the paper.
I wrapped my gift and added gold ribbon. I felt it needed some bling, so I created a shaker tag to finish the gift off. I die cut a tag three times out of metallic gold cardstock that I had in my stash. I also die cut the tag 6 more times in white cardstock. To set up the shaker tag, I glued acetate to the back sides of 2 of the gold tags. I then adhered 3 white tags together and adhered those to the acetate. I repeated this step on the other gold/acetate tag. This will give space to allow the sequins to move freely. I then sprinkled the amount of sequins I was happy with into the "well" on one of the acetate tags then adhered them both together, creating the see through tag.
For the second gold tag, I simply used the center cut out from one of the white die cut tags and stamped "TO" and "FROM" that is in the Pawlidays stamp set. Then I adhered the gold tag with the white center to the gift and the shaker tag overlapping the gift tag. I finished the gift off with a green ribbon bow.  
I hope you try making your own Christmas gift wrap. It is easy and so fun. Your recipient will also feel special knowing you handmade the wrap. Happy crafting.
