A Caroling We Go for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #190 on the 5th of December, 2022


For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of

Inspired by a Song

Here is my card:

During Stamptember at Simon Says Stamp, I bought this cool front door die from StudioLight and I just thought it was perfect for these carolling mice from A Caroling We Go which was released by La-La Land Crafts in November 2019, but is unfortunately no longer available. So I have stamped the mice on to X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • mice - N0, N1, N3, N5
  • nose/cheeks - R20, R30
  • teeth - C00
  • jumper/scarf - R24, R27, R39, R59
  • book - G02, G05, G09, Y35
  • bells - Y11, Y13, Y35, Y38
I then die cut the door from green cardstock and Kraft cardstock, the inside of the windows I die cut from a scrap of Little Merry Christmas Paper Pack by La-La Land CraftsI have coloured parts of the door with G19 and Y28 (bell), I then adhered the door together with double sided tape on the back before adhering it to the Kraft card from Envelope Solutions. I then used my E39 to draw boards on the wall (I was going to use bricks, but forgot!) and then W8 for the base board.

The sentiment label was die cut from Kraft card stock using Scalloped Sentiment Labels die set also by La-La Land Crafts. The sentiment from A Caroling We Go Clear Stamp Set was stamped in Elderberry Memento ink and my MISTI.

Here is the door adhered to the card:

and then, I added the "wooden" boards using my E39 Copic marker and the base board using W8:

Here is another photo of the card before adding the sentiment:

Here is a photo of the 4 mice before I fussy cut them:

I found inspiration from the La-La Land Crafts DT and as usual, from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.
