Waltzing Mouse November Pre-Release - Day 1

Good morning!! Welcome to day 1 of the Waltzing Mouse pre-release. 

Today I am showcasing Festive Foliage. A wonderful set comprising of all you need to make cards, layout and ornaments for the Christmas season. I made this cute little wreath just using the Festive Foliage stamps, red ribbon, some glossy accents, a ribbon spool and a single pearl. 


I layered up the Fir leaves and inked them with topiary ink. Then I added the ribbon, the holly leaves and acorns. Finally I added the berries using 3D pop dots for dimention. I added glossy accents to all of the berries.


I'll be making a few more of these for my Christmas tree :D 

*****************************

Mwah!! :D 


I just love this stamp - again from Festive Foliage. This set is so much fun!! I used copics to colour the mistletoe and added glossy accents to the berries. I used a tall/long card and layered it using white card and white vellum that I embossed using a cuttlebug folder. All of my edges have been inked using Bundled Sage distress ink. I cut out my image using Labels 2 nesties and sponged the background - again with Bundled Sage. To finish off I used some fabby grosgrain ribbon and some self adhesive pearls. 

Well I hope you like my samples for today. Here's who else is previewing..
