Sasayaki Glitter - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Hello, Critter-loving Friends!
I'm so happy to be seeing you again.

It's time for a new challenge at

2 Crafty Critter Crazies!

Sasayaki Glitter is sponsoring December's challenge, which ends December 30. A random winner is selected, and a guest designer for the upcoming month is chosen.

I am featuring Little Miss Teacup Mouse!

Colored with Copic Markers, she slurped her way through yummy hot chocolate in her china teacup. Even her fur coloring changed to a rich chocolate hue!

The teacup was coated with VersaMarker, and heat set with SNS clear detail embossing powder. Great shine, isn't it? (All that "white" in the cup is actually shine from the light on the clear EP)

Burnished Bronze Dream Weaver stencil paste was applied to K and Company designer paper, and allowed to dry into this amazing color!

The dies are Spellbinders Labels 8, and Sue Wilson Melbourne.

I accidentally dropped my round die cut with the mousie, and it adhered in the wrong place on the card, but that's how it goes sometimes. The adhesive was too strong to pull back up. Has that happened to you?
(While it's sad that it fell where it did, at least it fell relatively straight, right?) lol

The background cardstock was dry embossed and inked with the same abandoned coral distress ink as the image's circle.

Thank you for popping by today!
Don't forget to upload your creations that feature a critter at

That image is a real sweetie Donna and the gilding really glistens beautifully, not always easy to catch on camera.

I say happy accident, he looks great as a card 'topper'! Love the clear embossing powder, it adds so much shine and texture. The bronze is fabulous too! Cute image--as always!

Lori Kobular said...

Oh Donna! You are just too funny! I would never have guessed that your sweet mouse "fell" into that position! It looks like you perfectly planned her placement! Love the shiny cup and your adorable hot chocolate mouse! Love that beautiful embossing too!

Diane said...

Super cute and adorable card with all that FABULOUS shine!! Your little mouse is colored so pretty (these are the only kind of mice I created detail....and I have a card coming up later in the month that guess what?...Yep, I too dropped my panel on and it stuck where it happens!!

Oh my goodness, Donna. This is so cute. What lovely coloring and such a cute image. I love the bronze and the clear embossing powder.

Who makes that sentiment? I love hot chocolate. Not cocoa, but chocolate.

I'm so sorry you dropped the mouse but he fell into a great spot. I have had this happen before. Ugh! Sometimes I've been able to take it off and other times it's ruined the card. When you've put so much effort into the project it can be aggravating. Can we say recycle bin? [Bunny]

OH MY GOSH! Mouse in a teacup, love love love!! What an adorable image, he is so sweet! I love how you did the cup all glossy, that's so amazing! The frame is wonderful, intricate and fancy and draws the eye right to the little guy! The background is so elegant, that metallic damask design is divine! A gorgeous card Donna, unique and fabulous! sending hugs :)

This is gorgeous Donna. Love the shine on the cup and the bronzing on the backing paper. Only talented you could drop the die cut just where it doesn't matter and still look fantastic. You have the talent in everything. Lol!!!

The teacup mousie is adorable Donna, looks really at home in her beautiful shining cup! The background paper is gorgeous, such a lovely effect with the stencil paste and the colours are gorgeous! Never would have guessed that the image had been dropped and stuck in the wrong place...happens to me all the time, but mine never land straight :))
Happy weekend

Nana Connie said...

Donna, This is just too precious! Loving all the sparkle and shine, and I love how you reversed the image. Beautiful dies. :-D

Leslie Miller said...

You have been busy lately! Wow, love the gloss on the tea cup and the beautiful shimmer you added to the paper. I frequently have to make the best of a fumbled situation. Mine aren't always savable, but yours turned into a cute design feature. Adorable little mousie!

Oh, I thought you'd placed the circle with image there on purpose, going over the edge. I like that, what a lucky mishap indeed. And that background with bronze detailing, how exclusive looking! It's a fun, gorgeous card!

Has that ever happened to me???? Naaaah! Have I ever told you I have a glue phobia? Mainly this happens to me with adhesive tape. But had you not said anything about the mishap, I would have never known.

What a gorgeous card! That shiny teacup is amazing, and your copper stenciling is ooooh, la! La! Lovely! Tempting me, again! Hugs!

Carol L said...

What an adorable image, and he looks just precious in that shiny teacup too! I'm loving the medallion and beautiful background on your card almost as much as that fun little mouse too! Great card!
