SSS & Lawn Fawn-Christmouse blog hop

blog-hop_from-the-vault_lawn-fawn_638-01Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp & Lawn Fawn for a special blog hop featuring the Lawn Fawn From the Vault:  Merry Christmouse stamps and dies.  These were VERY POPULAR when they were first released during STAMPtember 2015 and sold out so quick. I’m so happy that Simon Says Stamp has brought them back for a limited time.
SSS/Lawn Fawn-Merry ChristmouseI just adore Lawn Fawn images and was so giddy to play with these cutie patootie mice. I created a row of hanging stockings filled with mice. I used my big foam tape roll as a guide to trace my swooping stocking string with a Multiliner pen and colored the images with Copics.
SSS/Lawn Fawn-Merry ChristmouseI blended some Salty Ocean & Cracked Pistachio onto watercolor cardstock for the background.
SSS/Lawn Fawn-Merry ChristmouseThis next card combined the Merry Christmouse set with the Ready, Set, Snow sets to make a fun shaker.
SSS/Lawn Fawn-Merry ChristmouseI used some of that delicious Perfectly Plaid paper for the background along with some Licorice twine on the side and filled the shaker with Caribbean Dream sequin mix.
