Getting Cricky Design Team Post - Of Mice & Lil' Men

Happy Wednesday!! I hope the first part of the week was awesome for you!! It's my turn to design again at Getting Cricky. The stamp set I am featuring today is Of Mice & Lil' Men. The sentiments on here are perfect for Disney-related projects, but I wanted to show that they can be used for so much more :)


All of the paper used for this project was heavy-duty white cardstock. The base of the card is a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle die, followed by a Spellbinders Labels Eight die, embossed with a Spellbinders M-Bossabillity Whimsey folder, sanded and inked with Spun Sugar, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress Inks. The ribbon is from May Arts. Recollections gems were added to the corners and the middle label.


The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels Twenty One die, also embossed with the Whimsey folder. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five die, inked with Spun Sugar, Festive Berries and Fired Brick. Once the inks dried I placed a stencil over the label and used something that I completely forgot I had in my craft room...stencil paste. It's probably been like five years since I used it last and I was sure it would be dried out. Thankfully it wasn't :) So it was slathered it on for a cool textured look.


The base of the center label is a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three die, inked with the same three distress inks as above. The middle tag is a  Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large die, inked with Spun Sugar. "Dreams do come true" was stamped in Festive Berries and is from K Andrew Designs Of Mice & Lil' Men stamp set:

  23. Oh my, just gorgeous! Thank you for always being so detailed about the layers and embossing and your willingness to share your techniques. You are such a sweetie. Oh, I almost had disaster with my Grand Calibur. I had a 4x5 die I wanted to use for a window card. I didn't want it to move and I didn't want to ruin the paper with reg. tape so I used respositional - only it was double sided!! Anyway, the plate stuck, the paper moved on, and the die wrapped around the roller - yikes!!!! I got it out with lots of tugging with pliers. Ruined the die but at least the machine survived my blond moment. Duh!!!
