Happy Friday evening stamping friends!
I have two projects for you featuring sneak peeks of the September 1st Whiff of Joy release.
Miss Betty with Candy Cane Mouse.
For Little Miss Betty I created a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square card from kraft cardstock.
I trimmed a piece of Pure Poppy Papertrey Ink cardstock into a 4" square and stamped it with the Hero Arts Cling Dots background stamp and Versamark Ink.
I used an edge distresser on the edges and machine stitched around the edge, then adhered it to the kraft card base.
I added an October Afternoon Christmas Wild Card to the background.
Then, it was time for Miss Betty.
I stamped her on Neenah Solar White Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I colored her fur with these Copic Sketch Markers:
I masked Betty and stamped the background with the Hero Arts Friend Definition Cling Background stamp and Antique Linen Distress Ink. I stamped some Hero Arts snowflakes using Barn Door Distress Ink and added gemstones to the centers.
I punched it out with a 3" circle punch and die cut a scallop circle using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
I finished the card with some satin ribbon and MM Christmas florals.

Next, here is Henry Christmas Mouse:
I thought it would be fun to do something a little different with Henry and I die cut this adorable little gift bag using the Silhouette. I used paper from my scrap file to die cut the box, which gave me a starting place for Copic Marker Colors for Mr. Henry.
I die cut and embossed the oval using a Spellbinders die in the Sizzix Big Shot.
I stamped him using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then used the following colors for his fur, nose and cheeks:
I probably didn't need all these grays. I started light and kept going darker. If I were to color him again I wouldn't use the lightest of these.
I die cut a scallop oval from a scrap of brown patterned paper and adhered the scallop label to the front of the gift bag. I stamped the matching greeting on the topper of the bag and secured the bag together with a ribbon.
