CAS Christmas November Reminder - Warm and Cosy

Hello everyone. There is still a week left to enter our Warm and Cosy challenge at CAS Christmas.  


So what could be more warm and cosy than a crackling fireplace and the smell of fresh baked cookies wafting through the home?  And that scene was the inspiration for my reminder card.


So how adorable is that excited little mouse? 🤗   Started by stamping mama and son mice with Copic friendly black ink on a stitched Copic friendly piece of cardstock.  Masked them before stamping the fireplace.  Masked the fireplace and the floor, then blended Real Red and Soft Suede dye inks with blender brushes to create the wall.  I wanted to use warm colours. 


Masked the wall and “baseboard” next, and blended Sahara Sand dye ink for the floor.  Removed the masks and coloured in all images with Copics.  Black heat embossed the sentiment and added clear shimmer to the flames to finish.  


If you need more inspiration to play along, head on over to the challenge post HERE and check out what our guest Bobby (Bits & Pieces) and my team have created.  Love to see what you come up with.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a merry Christmas and we’ll see you next year for the next CAS Christmas challenge.
