Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party (November – Classic Christmas), Curtain Call 15/11 (CAS-ual Christmas), CAS-ual Fridays #121 (Create With 8), SSS Monday 18/11 (It’s a Mystery)

Following quickly along from my last post, here’s my second card for the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party … this time the theme’s Classic Christmas … which dovetails nicely with the inspiration photograph at the Curtain Call, where I’m playing for the first time.  At CAS-ual Fridays, the theme is Create with 8 … make a project where we use eight of something, and I’m linking up again with Simon Says Stamp Monday‘s It’s a Mystery challenge … I’m a newbie at Curtain Call so that’s mysterious for now!

On a white watercolour panel, I stamped the WMS mistletoe, masked it, stamped it again and drew the colour into the leaves using an aqua brush.   The berries were coloured with Promarkers and given dimension and shine with Glossy Accents.  I punched a tiny hole each side of the stems, threaded the ribbon through and tied the bow, before stamping the WMS sentiment.  The panel was then mounted on a card base edged with red.

A final couple of things … the mistletoe leaves are the eight for CAS-ual Fridays … and Claire at WMS suggested we might want to consider an interactive card … d’you think the bow might count if you have little ones learning to tie them?!

Off to link … just 16 minutes left and counting!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party (November – Thank you very much for being my …), Colour Q #216 (Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, More Mustard), SSS Monday 18/11 (Mystery), SSS Wednesday 20/11 (Sketch)

Monsieur Mojo was a bit quiet this week … till today when he gave me a hand with a couple of cards … one here, and one to follow.  I’ve accepted the invitation to attend the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party for the first time this month … this card’s for the ‘Thank you very much for being my …’ theme.  It’s also my first time playing along at the Colour Q, where the colours are kraft, pumpkin pie, bashful blue and more mustard, and as WMS and CQ are both unknown to me (and therefore could be described as mysteries!), I’m linking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday where there’s a ‘mystery’ theme.  The layout comes from the sketch at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday so I’m joining in there too.

The feathers are from Waltzingmouse, stamped and trimmed out, and the banners are dry embossed and sponged.  I mounted one banner flat and one on low foam dots, and adhered the feathers with high foam dots along the spines.  The twine was wrapped round the base panel and knotted round the quills of the feathers, and I finished off with the WMS sentiment.

I’m rushing a bit to get this linked and my next card photographed, posted and linked … all before the party finishes at WMS (I have 49 minutes!), so I’ll get on!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂
