I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

No doubt! I have a HUGE box of goodies that just arrived from Stampendous! Mostly Christmas, so I am feeling very inspired and in the spirit! Thanks Laura!! Hope you had a great vacay, ready for the next catalog girl?? I am totally psyched to dig in on my goodies, but in the meantime I am giving you a touch of festive eye candy.

This is the Mouse King (from The Nutcracker). He is part of Pixie Dust Studio's Nutcracker release from a couple of weeks back. Is he not the cutest little thing?!! I wanted a soft color theme for him so I chose this paper from Basic Grey to base my copic choices on. (Pictured at end of post)

Here's a closeup of the King so you can see his face and the shimmer of his crown. I added Silver Smooch to it and his buttons. A bit more subtle bling... The center panel was cuttlebugged with "Ornaments" folder then I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch spray. (And yes, I cut out his whiskers!!)

OK, gotta go! I am off to finally watch The Lightening Thief with Michael and Taylor!

  • Supplies:
  • Stamps: Mouse King digi (Pixie Dust Studio); Christmas Sentiments (Amy R Stamps)
  • Paper: Eskimo Kisses pp (Basic Grey); grey cs (SU!); blue cs (Bazzill); white cs (Neenah)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)

  1. Adorable, Cyndi!! Love the color choices!

  2. I love the Nutcracker! This mouse king is so cute and yet regal at the same time. I can't believe you cut out his whiskers, crazy woman.

  3. Sweet! Love the blues for a Christmas card!

    I felt like a kid on Christmas morning the other day when I got my box! LOL! Can't wait to see what you create!

  4. I had so much fun with your Stampendous Sketch design this week. The three cards you made using the design are absolutely amazing. The coloring on the Nutcracker Mouse is fabulous. Thank you so much for your inspiration and beautiful cards.
