Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek 3!

Are you liking the samples I've been posting this week using new products from the Holiday Catalog? Each year I think the catalog is the best ever and Stampin' Up! tops it again this year! So today I am showing you the new Merry Mice stamp set. If you love to watercolor, this set is perfect for you. Look how cute he is all dressed up and singing the tunes:

I started out with a card base of Island Indigo Cardstock measuring 11" x 4-1/4". I scored in the center at 5-1/2" and folded. I then added a layer of the Moroccan Designer Paper which measures 5" x 3-3/4". For the stamped image layer I used Whisper White Cardstock 4" x 3" and stamped using Basic Black Ink. Next I played with an assortment of ink pad colors using my Blender Pen for the image and my Aqua Painter for the background:

The ink colors I used are: Real Red, Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate & Blushing Bride. I glued this layer over my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals and then added Rhinestone Jewels in the background.
For the sentiment I first stamped on Whisper White Cardstock using Real Red Ink and used the Large Numbers Framelits Dies to cut out a partial banner. 
Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Merry Mice
  • Inks: Real Red, Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate & Blushing Bride
  • Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White
