Cup of Mouse!

Hello everyone, I am a guest designer for the month of November and very proud to be here with all the wonderful designers at Sweet n' Sassy Stamps!  Today my card will show you images from the newly released set Cup of Cocoa, isn't this mouse cute!

-Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps were used to color the image using the Gamsol technique. Baby oil replaces the Gamsol/mineral spirits.
-The snowflakes around the mouse and on the insert are cut from glitter paper using the Cuttlebug die set Winter and they are glued to the card with Aleene's tacky glue.
-Stickles was added to the snowflakes on the image.

I stamped a partial image for the envelope and used the same coloring techniques as the card.  The insert is simple with three snowflakes glued in place but a nice added treat to the recipient.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Sweet n’ Sassy Stamps – Cup of Cocoa
Paper: White, Bazzill – red, Encore Sales – green, K&Company – designer paper, DCWV - white glitter paper
Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Making Memories – brads, Stickles, Aleene’s tacky glue, Prismacolor pencils, baby oil, tape, ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug and Winter die, Stampin Up mat pack and Bazzill piercer for brads, paper stumps, Nestabilities
