Waltzing Mouse November Pre-Release Day 3

Hi!! Today is the final day of Waltzing Mouse Stamps previews before four the new stamp sets are being released. Mark your calendar for 7pm GMT tomorrow, which will see the shop doors open and the blog waltz begin!!

Today, I am showcasing projects using Around Christmastime. This is a wonderfully verstatile set with so many possibilites. 


Don't you just LOVE that Santa moon??!! I stamped him out using fired brick distress ink, then I layered up clear embossing powder over the whole image. I wasn't going for the cracked glass effect but more the wrinkles effect, lol, so I didn't put it in the freezer. I let it cool naturally and then bent it back and forth to get the tiny cracks. Then I rubbed brushed cordoroy ink over it and wiped it off, which left the ink just in the cracks. 


My papers are BG Jovial. The lace, ribbon and roses are from my stash and the cute reindeer charm is one I picked up from the Hobby House stand at the NEC. 

To compliment my card I made a couple of co-ordinating pillow boxes, as you do ;)


I hope my samples today provide a little inspiration for you all. Don't forget to pay a visit to the other ladies blogs for their previews.
