for Stamp with fun Challenge. I'm so excited to be a guest designer for this weeks challenge - Little Presents. I made a little chocolate box and card to match.
I just couldn't resist using this House Mouse stamp it just seemed to fit the bill.
For the card, I stamped it twice, water-coloured the main image and coloured the background with Distress Ink refills, using a sponge technique and added snow with a Sakura white gelly roll pen. I cut out all the main images of mice and presents and layered them over the second coloured background image.
I layered a couple of patterned papers onto blue card and added a blue ribbon down and across the card trying to give the impression of a wrapped present.
For the choc box, I got the instructions from a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for Peek a Boo box here. I adjusted the size slightly and used just the small mouse wrapping a present, portion of the stamp. The same papers and ribbon were used to decorate the box. Inside some homemade chocolate truffles. Mmmmm yummy!
Hope you all like them! I really enjoyed my first guest designer spot.
