I covered my card in patterned paper that has circles on it and added another strip in different colours! I stamped the Mouse image and watercoloured him in with Marvy Le Plumes, and matted him onto the card. I stamped the greeting and matted that also, then added some green Primas with Copper Stickles for the centres.
I started by cutting two circles with the cricut. Then I stamped them both with images from Jayne Nestroenko. I then coloured the mouse in with watercolour pencils. The circles were then matted onto red DCWV paper. Some ribbon was added to the edge of the large circle, a paperclip and red acrylic circles added.
I got the instructions for the surprise pop up card here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/surprise_pop_up_card/ and although I didn't follow them to the letter the basics of how it works is there. All the stamps used are from the Cute Companions range, which I stamped in black archival ink and coloured with prisma pencils, blended with sansodor. I highlighted some areas with clear glitter glue.
I needed to make a tag for a friends present and so put together this simple design. I cut out a circle in yellow, watercoloured my little mouse and added an eyelet with some gold ribbon. I finished off with some blue sequins.
This week I was sent these wonderful little Cute Companion Mouse and star stamps to make my card with. Funny because I already have the Cute Companion CD and the stamps are moving up my wish list! I have printed some backing paper from the CD and I have stamped the little mouse and stars on a circular topper. His little shirt and the stars are paper pieced and I have water coloured the rest of him. Embellished with blue gems, satin ribbon and stitched photo corners.
I stamped my little Cute Companions mouse stamp and paper pieced her dress. I stamped the little rose and placed it in the mouse's hands. I matted her onto a circle tag and chose some patterned paper with circles on. I added a few (!) embellishments and a Cute Companions Thank You sentiment.
