Today’s card was a especially fun, because it’s the first one I designed as a new Design Team member of The Sisterhood of Crafters. I’m honored that I was selected, and looking forward to participating as a designer in the Wednesday, bi-weekly challenges.
The theme for this two-week period is “newly acquired stash,” and I couldn’t wait to get started!
But, this was one of those days when I had a design in mind, and it turned out completely different.
I was thinking of a card featuring beautiful, Poppy Parade poppies from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. I managed to stamp one, before the mouse appeared from behind the Brick & Mortar embossed wall.
i have to take the blame, because I made the mouse from the Special Someone Stamp Set and Special Day Die Set, and set him aside. He was ready to jump on a card ASAP!
Mouse insisted on writing the sentiment with a large pen from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set. Therefore, I made the pen by stamping it in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, coloring with Stampin’ Blends, and fussy cutting.
Other than the ink splatters, the mouse did a good job of writing “thank you,” don’t you agree?
To hide the hole in the brick wall that led to Mouse’s home, we added a raised rectangle. I cut this with one of the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies, which worked perfectly.
CAS(E) this sketch was the inspiration for my design.
Thank you for stopping by. I know Mouse is happy to show off his Thank You card. Keep scrolling to see the new supplies in my Product List. Just click on the pictures to go shopping at my store. Thanks!
P.S. The Special Day Dies are available now for Demonstrators, and Feb 4 for customers. And, they will be carrying-over to the new Annual Catalog!
