Are you ready for another STAMPtember exlusive? Today Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn are joining together to bring you the adorable Merry Christmouse Stamps and Dies! I am a big fan of making my own gift tags for holiday gifts and the new Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags make creating your own tags so super easy. Thread a little Lawn Trimmings twine through the top of each and you're all set. I used the awesome Sparkle Red Lawn Trimmings twine for my tag share today. I could create a whole set of these using the different mice and images from the Merry Christmouse Stamp Set!
For the tag base, I die cut the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags from smooth white cardstock twice and once from a 6x6 Let's Bokeh In The Snow patterned paper. From one of the white tags, I die cut a snowy hillside using a Stitched Hillside Border Die. I adhered the landscape along the bottom of the patterned paper tag and stamped a greeting from the Merry Christmouse Stamp Set along the snowy border.
I stamped the mouse and cheese tree from the Merry Christmouse Stamp Set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink and colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The individual marker colors are linked below in supplies and the marker numbers are shown in the upper left corner of the screen in the video tutorial below. Once the ink dried, I die cut the images with the coordinating Merry Christmouse dies.
To make the brim and ball of the hat on the mouse have texture, I added the Marvy Uchida Snow Marker and heat set it. I added detail to the eyes and nose on the mouse with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen.
For the back of the tag, I took the "to" and "from" greetings form the Birthday Tags Stamp Set and stamped them on the second white die cut tag. I adhered the two tags back to back and threaded through some Sparkle Red Lawn Trimmings twine and adhered some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to finish the design.
