Christmas Tree Mouse - Impression Obsession Week Day 5

I can't thank you enough for joining us today for the last day of Impression Obsession week. The Dream Team and I have SO enjoyed it, and we hope you have too!

Before I forget...the blog candy is still active on THIS POST . If you haven't left a comment already, please do!

AND...just because I love it so much when you guys come back for something besides just the blog candy, you get a second chance at it if you leave a comment on today's post! Please just tell me your favorite card or technique from Impression Obsession week. Okay...you can even have two favorites! LOL!


I think this little Christmas Tree Mouse is the cutest thing ever! I stamped it on white cardstock using Onyx Black Versafine ink, heat set it, then colored using Prismacolored pencils and mineral spirits.

The stamped image was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Small Labels Nestabilities then layered using Large Labels cut from Blush Red Prismatics dark.

The holly on the bottom of the panel is from the stamp set.


The sentiment is also included in the Christmas Tree Mouse clear stamp set. I added a couple of red Mini Rhinestones to the holly, then put a bead of Frosted Lace Stickles around the edge.

The frame behind the sentiment is Spellbinders Fancy Tags . The designer paper is from the My Mind's Eye Merry Days of Christmas paper kit.

Please check out what these Dream Team designers have for you today:
Tosha , Silke , Amy and Laurie

My most sincere thanks for joining us this week. I hope you will join us again soon!

I liked Laurie's Chickadee card (one of my favorite birds that visits my bird feeder) and your Candy Jar card (which may have something to do with my infinity for candy). Thanks again for giving us a chance to win some Candy!!

What a great week!!! I have been amazed all week but was blown away by Amy's sample today. It was just stunning with the layers, the ribbon and the bling.

Shelly said...

I love your card, so cute and whimsical. Just love it.

Hi Michelle -

Ok, I love all the cards, but if I am picking two they would be Denise's Bump in the Snow and your Candy Jars. It is extremely hard to just pick two because all the ladies did such wonderful jobs.

I went to everyone's IO blog. IO stamps are beautiful and I wanted to see what everyone did with them. Favorite? Wow that is tough. I liked Tosh's cupcakes (they were intricate). The two cards done with the Christmas Mouse are darling. The Poinsetta card by Amy was spectacular, but my favorite was the Christmas tree card by Amy that she posted on August 20th. That card is great.I really did look at all of them. Thanks.

Diana K said...

My favorite technique is using the glass shards technique. SO CUTE!!
