Coloring Stampendous with Tombow

Welcome to the Stampendous and Tombow Winter Wonderland Hop!

The Tombow blog hop has finally come to stop here on my blog and I will be sharing with you an extremely angelic card today.  If you have been hopping with us you have just hopped here from Leadonna's blog or if this is the first you are hearing about a hop then you'll want to start at the back at the beginning, Friday, Saturday, and today.

Handmade Greeting Card of mice as angels.

Tombow was so generous to send the Muted Brush Pen set and it complemented many of my own Tombow pens so I was able to get quite a bit of shading on the Angel Mice stamp. The product details at the end of my post will have marker names and numbers.

I added some bling to the card when I was finished and it was easy to get in some detail with the Mono Glue Pen and glitter. Check out the paper clip halo in Gold Halo Mix.

I also used the Mono Glue Pen to create swirls around the holly branch after I glued some Gilded Mica Fragments around the bottom of the frame.

Stampendous and Tombow Prize Package

There is a prize to be had. If you are interesting in winning all you need to do is comment on each company blog and that of each designer for each day of the hop. Stampendous will announce the winner on a Monday post. Contest details are on the Stampendous blog.

Verve Stamps Release Day!

It's release day at Verve and we're celebrating with Day 4 of our November 2014 Spotlight Hops!  Have you enjoyed the spotlights we've been sharing this week? Well, the wait is over and everthing previewed this week is available in the Verve online store now! And to cap off this release, we're giving away the entire release to one lucky commenter along today's hop, so come along with us as we share one last look-see at our holiday spotlights!

Today's spotlight is on the November 2014 Release Collection, so grab a treat and hop along! If you've been hopping already today then you would have come from Maureen's blog.

It is such a thrill to be sharing with you today for so many reasons, but it's not about me today. It's all about the JUST released Collection of Verve's Holiday Spotlight Hop. YAY!

For my card, I stamped the stable and sentiment on separate pattern paper with Versamark ink and embossed with Detail Black Embossing Powder. The stable was cut out with it's coordinating Starry Stable Die Set and then the stars cut from coordinating paper from the pack.

The bottom half of the card panel was embossed with Chunky White Embossing Enamel and heat set from the back of the panel (no "glue" needed) and then sewn around the edges with black button thread. A ribbon wrapped around the panel and tied in a bow before gluing it down on the card base. It's all glued and popped up from there. Now here's something that you are really going to love...

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE November 2014 Release!

Spellbinders and Stampendous Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop with Spellbinders! It's the last day and we've been getting ready for a inspiring day of fantastic projects.

Today's hop has four great companies and you'll find a link to them on the Spellbinders blog, we've provided a link back to them once you've seen all our great projects, and if you are just now finding this hop here on my blog, please also stop by the Stampendous blog for a great chance at prizes. All the details for not only a Stampendous blog prize, but also a grand prize from Spellbinders.

So here's my card for today and it's using a great House-Mouse Designs stamp called Finishing Touches which I sneaked in for Getting Ready for Christmas Theme for Stampendous Theme Week. The sentiment is a very fun Retro Christmas stamp trimmed to pop.

My little mice are colored with Copic Markers and framed with Spellbinders nestabilities that are embossed with clear powder and then dusted with Micro Glitter and reheated to set.

The fun background paper is embossed with Spellbinders and sanded to reveal a complimentary blue core to the colored image. It's been wrapped with May Arts ribbon and Fran•táge with Chunky White embossing powder. To add to this sparkly design I added varying glue dots that were covered with Micro Glitter.
