Inkspired Blog Hop 43

Hello everyone and welcome to another Inkspired Blog Hop! You have probably come from Marlene who always makes wonderful cards. I am looking forward to seeing what she has made. It is a hot day in Sydney and I am enjoying the warmer weather.

This is the card that Teneale has provided for this fortnight:

I knew immediately what I wanted to create when I saw this sketch.

I used Mint Macaron for my card base and then cut another piece of Mint Macaron for the card front. I embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing folder. I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Pinecones and Presents DSP. I used the strip in the Banner Triple Punch. 
I stamped the mouse and sentiment from the Merry Mice stamp set onto Whisper White and coloured it using the Many Marvellous Markers.

I love making "Winter" Christmas cards - even though it is usually very hot at Christmas here.

Next on the hop is Maree, who always makes wonderful cards.

See you all again soon!



  1. Your mousey is fabulous! Coloured beautifully too. I really like the colours you have used at the Mint Macaron base with the Softly Falling embossing is perfect for the rugged up winter mouse!

  2. Looks great Allison. You have done a wonderful job with the colouring of the mouse.

  3. How funny, this I had been going to use this little mouse as I am very partial to the set. (not real mice) Had eye trouble so changed. I love your card its great

  4. Great card Allison, love the textured embossing and your little mouse is super cute.

  5. Allison love your card and I was thinking of mice but couldn't decide what to do with them.Love the Mint Macaron base and how it goes together so well.
