It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge. Although these colors screamed “FLOWERS” to me, I resisted and used my Caroling Mice Stamp Set instead!
I just pulled out a couple of the colors from the inspiration, Evening Evergreen, Smoky Slate and Polished Pink!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Evening Evergreen cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- Emboss the 3-3/4 x 5 Basic White across the top with the Charming Landscapes Embossing Folder.
- Cut the 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 Smoky Slate cardstock with the largest Stitched Shapes Circle Die, then cut in half, adhere towards bottom of the Basic White.
- Stamp the notes with Memento Black Ink on the background and color with Light Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends.
- On the 4 x 4 piece of Basic White, stamp the single mouse, lamp post with Memento Black Ink and the greeting with Polished Pink Ink. Color with Evening Evergreen, Polished Pink, Light Smoky Slate and Light So Saffron Blends. Lighten pink cheeks and ears with Color Lifter Blends. Hand-cut the mouse and lamp post and add to the top of the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Stamp the “ground” with Smoky Slate Ink on the half circle, under the mouse.
- Cut the greeting with the Stylish Shapes Banner Die and add to circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Add two Solid Faceted Gems to side of the circle.
