SP&Co. Christmas Mouse Elf with Poinsetta

Today I used this cute stamp again. I am in love with this mouse! This time I paper pieced most of the image using paper from Bo Bunny's "Mistletoe Collection". The colors in this paper are very traditional Christmas colors. The sentiment I used was from SP&Co "Oh Christmas Tree" stamp set. The black card base is from Michaels.
I used Memento Tuxedo black to stamp the main image and Versafine Onyx black for the sentiment on the tag. The twine is from PTI and the red ribbon is from Hobby Lobby!

I used copics for some of the parts on the mouse.

SP&Co. Fancy Snowflake card

Today I have another card share from SP&Co. 

I used the Fancy Snowflake stamp set and the Bold Sentiments II- Holiday from SP&Co. 
I laid out the stamps on my card front and arranged them how I wanted them. 
I used my Fiskars stamp press to pick up the stamps and I only had to stamp once. Pretty neat tool!

 I used Versafine Black Onyx ink for the sentiments and snowflakes. The large white snowflake was stamped in versamark ink and I then used Martha Stewart white embossing powder. I don't usually heat emboss as I am not the greatest at it. But I wanted the snowflake to stand out on this card.I used a ribbon from my stash that matched the card base pretty well.
 I plan on calling a photo friend and asking him for some tips and tricks on taking better photos. I hope to share better photos soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
