A Very Thankful Mouse

September 24, 2016

Hi there!
I'm Anna (al_handmade) and today I want to share with you a project featuring a sweet little mouse from the super adorable “Fall Mice” stamp set.



For this card I wanted to create a nice background to my lovely furry friend. I started drawing a sun ray shape on a white card panel and cut it off. Then I stamped some fruits and veggies with Memento Ink London Fog on copic-friendly paper and colored them with Copic Markers in order to create a colorful background pattern.
At first, I wanted to use saturated fall colors but then I decided to go for softer shades. Maybe I'm not in an autumnal state of mind yet! :) Finally I masked my colored background with the sun ray frame previously cut.



I stamped the cute critter and colored it with my Copic markers - trying to give him a furry look. Since I wanted to use a sentiment about love and affection, I added a big glossy heart in his arms.

Finally I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum with some golden powder - adding one last shiny touch to my card.



Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this project.
See you next week!

Santa and a Kitten

October 19, 2018

This was such a fun image to color. I do have to admit, I am a dog person but, with all these adorable kitty stamps from Gerda Steiner I am slowly becoming a kitty person, too!

I colored the Santa and Kitty image with Copic markers onto 80# cardstock and fussy cut it out. I ran a black pen along the image which really helps cover the mistakes I made in my fussy cutting.
