Waltzingmouse Pajama Party October

Hi, these are my cards for the Waltzingmouse PJ Party

For my first card : Texturise It.

I have created my texture by embossing over a Spellbinders Floral Oval die, and then highlighting with gilding wax. Using traditional colours red and green. I have used a background paper with diagonal stripes. Waltzingmouse stamp and die set, Little Lanterns and from one of the new Christmas Sentiments, 'Tis the Season, I used Noel. I love this set. Framed by a Spellbinders Label set.
To top the lantern I have used the holly from Festive Foliage stamp and die set.

For card number 2, Snow is Falling

I have made a snow scene using A Cottage Christmas and coloured with Copics pens.
My colour theme based on the design seeds photo

The two shades of blue are on the cottage, the greens in the trees and the sentiment and the pale stone on the two tree pots. After a lot of consideration I decided not to add glitter as the snow, prefering to leave the card white.

Card No 3 : Old Pajamas, Old Christmas Set

I have used the Yonder Star Set, Yonder Star Background and Festive Foliage, also die cut using the Picot Panel and the Stitched Tags set.

My colours were taken from this bright selection

I stamped the star from the Yonder Star set and arranged like a patchwork design. Then pieced in the spaces using the Yonder Star background stamp, with a vintage feel and to give a distressed look with plenty of tattered rose distress ink sponged around. The Holly berries were finished with a cosmic shimmer glitter and shine. I love the Picot Panel die, the sentiment has a light background stamped from the Yonder Star background stamp.

Thank you for visiting and reading about my cards.


  1. Beautiful cards - and all so different. The first is so elegant with the debossed fancy oval die, the bold bright color on the little Christmas houses, and the last looks soft and distressed. Great way to show off your style.

  2. Three beautiful designs! love the lantern with the holly overlaying the pretty debossed frame!

  3. Love all of them but particularly your "Snow is Falling", the colouring is amazing!
