House Mouse newbies!

I saw that House Mouse (Spellbinders) has now released new stamps!  I love them all and love to color too.  Here are a couple of my makes:

 I really enjoy that they come with added sentiments that coordinate now!  It is so helpful to me to not have to dig through my stamps for a good sentiment.....  
 The image is colored using Copics. For the CAS challenge at Splitcoast, I needed to keep it CAS,  so added a touch of color using stenciling on the background.  

Last week, I used another image and made these 2 cards:


 On the first, gingham DP plus a texture on the blue strip using the score board. Coloring using Copics.

On the 2nd, I used a background of shaving creme technique. The Spellbinders die did not have a good next side, so I freehanded the cut and then colored the frame blue. Again, sentiments are now included with the stamp.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Blackout Embossing

I made a couple of cards with the blackout embossing technique- quick and easy!

Ohhh, I love birds and have this beautiful 3D Embossing folder from Simon Says Stamps, aka SSS.
The tutorial is on the Splitcoast Technique TLC1001 thread.  I added DOC inks to the debossed image, then black over the top....  I love this- the colors are best if vibrant!


 I have this new Altenew suite of stamps, stencil. EF- love this trio!  I used the 3D EF and added color using DOX, then black over the top.  I used a die from the suite to finish my card. What a fun look.  Hope you enjoy these cards and will consider coming to check out the challenge!
