IT'S STILL WINTER, AFTER ALL . . .

  Hello, Stampers!     I've been playing around again.  I know it's past the time these little mice would be finding their Christmas tree, but I've seen this clever idea a couple of times online and had to CASE.  However, I did add my own extra features to the story - the figures in the background.     The inks I brushed and sponged are a combination of Versafine Claire, Stampin' Up! and Distress Oxide. The stamp sets are below.   Happy Stampin'!

OUT OF SEASON, BUT . . .

  Hello, Stampers!     This is definitely post the season, but I wanted to share with you my shameless IDEA CAS from Robin Riley on the FB Group, Del Bello's Designs Lounge (stamping with Lavinia Stamps only).  The hat is paper-pieced with DSP.  I didn't make my version in time to send out to anyone - maybe next year.  Please comment below if you like it or have any questions.  Supplies listed below.

  Hello, Stampers!     I created this little birthday card yesterday for a book club friend.  I love these little mice by Colorado Craft. I created the inside sentiment in Word.  Supplies are below      Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about any products I've used or where to find them.  I'll answer, if I can.   I've had some for quite some time and don't remember where I purchased them.

WHAT HAVE I BEEN PLAYING AT? ;-)

  Hello, Stampers!     I may be leaving Stampin' Up! but I'm definitely still stamping.  This winter fantasy scene is my CAS from a Lavinia Stamps YouTube video tutorial (a couple of years ago!) by Tracey Dutton, founder of Lavinia Stamps. I stamped and sponged this winter night/"snow wreath" scene on Multifarious Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Clair Inks - Twilight, Warm Breeze and some accents in Blue Belle, with a little Morning Mist.  The only other accents were made with a white gel pen and a glitter gel pen.
