January Blog Hop

January Blog Hop

Happy January Blog Hop Day! I hope that you’ve been enjoying our week long mini-hops and that they’ve given you a little inspiration as to what our January Collection might do in your own inky fingers.  I’m the last person on the hop, so if you’ve come from Kerry Urbatch’s blog you are in the right place. If you didn’t click on over to Julee Tilman’s blog to start off at the beginning.

For my hop offering, there were so many cute stamps I couldn’t do just one card, so I decided to do two. First off is this cutey patootie stamp from the Sun, Please Stamp Set. I LOVE the size of these little mice, they are easy to color and the FREE Cutting file makes them easy to cut around.

Once I colored in the little mouse I added dots of white to add more texture to the umbrella and handle. I stamped the sentiment in tangerine versa fine ink and used the white pen to add more depth to the sentiment.

The stitched clouds were a last minute addition. I thought needed something in that area because of the flowered gems I added to bottom corner. I used foam tape to give everything a little depth and finished it off by adding shadows with my grey marker.

For my second card I did a slimline concertina card using the sentiment from the Live, Love, Bark Stamp Set, the NEW Welcome Gnome Stamp Set and the NEW Grassy Patches CutUps.

I üsed one of the dies from the Fancy Flip  CutUps  for the sentiment and added more white pen to the letters and to doodle on the edge. I also stamped a sentiment on the inside

Was it simple? You bet. Will I show you how? Of course. In the meantime, check out the card in action by clicking the picture above.

  1. Oh, I love your gnome card and wish that a video was available. Would like to know how this one is made. I love the gnomes. So darn cute.

  2. Love both cards, Alma! You’ve colored the sweet mouse so preciously. And the slimline is sooooo much fun! I love that design.

  3. Again, love the gnomes and thank you for the dimensions and the video on how to make this card. I appreciate it so much.

  4. The mouse and gnomes cards are WONDERFUL!!! I love how you used so many gnomes, and used a special sort of card for it. I always do a basic card base, but would LOVE to learn to make others. THANK YOU
