More Pick a Petal.....

Brrrrr! Its cold outside in my craft room....

I didn't get to play yesterday as my computer was playing up and it wouldn't let me upload anything on Blogger!

I just saw the mouse again climbing up the honeysuckle to get the bird food I had hidden in there.....I love animals but if I see that mouse in my craft room, I will be chasing it with a broom like the old lady in her pinnie - from Tom and Jerry :-)xx
He would have a field day with my beloved cardstock......The food is now moved to another place.

I did worn you that I thought a PINK week was coming your way -

The first card is Pink Passion base, half of a sheet of cardstock folded in half - UK A5 size.
I used the stamparound wheel Petals with an uninked cartridge which I filled up with versamark ink. I ran this all over a piece of whisper white cardstock and embossed it with clear embossing powder. The stampin' up embossing powder is very fine, it could even be like the Detail sort! Then I used the Pretty in Pink inkpad with a Brayer and Brayered all over the top. I wiped off the excess with some tissue. Out pops the embossed petals......

Next I stamped over the top in Pink Passion the petals from the Pick a Petal stamp set. I just love the whisper white cardstock, the ink soaks right into it. I layered this piece onto some more whisper white and added a flower, jumbo eyelet and rhinestone brad. The Happy Birthday stamp is from the Ocassional Greetings stamp set.......

The base cardstock is again half a sheet of Pink Passion. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder tiny bubbles for the background. I stamped the spottie petal in Pixie Pink 6 times on whisper white and went over them in Pink Passion with the other petal. The 2 flowers and hat pin is from the Pretties Kit. I added a huge clear button in the centre after stamping one of the circles that come in the Pick a Petal stampset.

The ribbon is not SU - Its from Newbury craft show last year. I used the same Happy Birthday stamp again as above.

Hope you have a great day, I'm off to see a horror movie with my hubbie later. I think he chooses them on purpose to see me jump!

Thanks for looking,

PS. The answer was the PJ's! Our family love to have PJ's days and watch movies all day and do no work!!!

Gorgeous work Jenny ! Love how you've altered the paper with all that stamping. They sell these sticky wooden mats to catch the little mice humanely then you just release them outside!
