Welcome to another Pootler’s Team Blog Hop! This blog hop is to showcase some of the gorgeous goodies in the seasonal Autumn & Winter Catalogue that was released on 1st September.
It’s no secret I love colouring with my Prismacolour pencils on our Crumb Cake Cardstock, I love the way the colours pop!! As soon as I saw the Merry Mice Stamp Set I knew I would be getting out my coloured pencils. I know it may feel a wee bit earlier for Christmas cards but last year I made all of my own and although I did get a head start I still ended up making dozens in a mad rush in the run up to the big day, so this year I am thinking “the earlier the better!”.
I stamped my carol singing mouse in some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to my favourite Crumb Cake Cardstock (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches). I had so much fun colouring in my little mouse friend. I still need plenty of practice with my pencils but I love finding cute little images like this to use. I added some extra snow accents with a white gel pen.
I popped my mouse card front on to a mat of Real Red Cardstock (4″ x 5 6/8 inches) and then on to a card base of Crumb Cake Cardstock with some of my favourite adhesive Fast Fuse (cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches). I stamped my sentiment in Versamark Ink on a strip of Real Red Cardstock and heat embossed with some White Stampin Up Emboss Powder. My sentiment was not completely central…ooops! so I rescued this by adding some white gel pen faux stitching and that is my first Christmas card for 2016 completed!!

Well its time for another Pootler’s Blog Hop. This is the third blog hop and my fellow Pootler’s and I have put together a series of projects showcasing some of the amazing new products from the Autumn and Winter Catalogue that was released on the 1st of September.
For my card today I am using the gorgeous Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set. I then used a piece of Whisper White Thick A4 Cardstock cut to 5 7/8 inches x 8 2/8 inches scored at 3 7/8 inches and 7 6/8 inches to make a tri-fold card. On the front (left hand area) I punched a hole using my 2 1/2 inch circle punch. On the right sided fold I lined up the punched hole and stamped the medium snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes set and stamped this through my punched area with Night of Navy Classic ink. Then taking my ink pad and a Stampin Up blender pen I coloured some areas of my snowflake.

Then taking some Vellum cardstock I stamped the image again with Versamark ink and heat embossed with my heat tool and Stampin Silver Embossing Powder. I then cut this out and adhered this to my card lining it up on top of my original stamped image. I then stamped the two smaller snowflake images on to some vellum cardstock and again embossed in silver embossing powder. I stamped the two images again on to some Whisper White cardstock in Marina Mist Classic Ink. I punched both pairs of the stamped images with the matching Snow Flurry Punch. Taking the larger image stamped in Marina Mist and the smaller embossed snowflake I popped these on to the card with some Stampin Dimensionals. I then added some Basic Rhinestones to sparkle up my snowflakes.
Going back to the front panel of my card I stamped one of the sentiment stamps in Versamark ink again and embossed in the silver embossing powder and again added some more Basic Rhinestones.
For the inside (middle) of my card I stamped another sentiment in Marina Mist Classic Ink and adhered the two remaining stamped and embossed snowflakes.
