Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party

Hello fellow crafty folks!

Some Waltzingmouse happy mail arrived for me on Friday, just in time for the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party this month.  Lots of new things to play with but not lots of time, unfortunately, so I've only managed to do one of the challenges, which is the Bedtime Story sketch challenge:

I stamped the houndstooth from Heirloom Patterns in Midnight Muse and blended a couple of blue Distress Inks over it. I then used Woodgrain to stamp over some balsa wood  and added a few of the nautical motifs from Ocean Bound. I've been dying to get my inky hands on that set for ages - perfect for masculine cards!

There's still a few hours left until Mr Linky closes his doors so you never know, I may have time for one more.  In the meantime I'm going to have a nose at what everyone else has done...

Thanks for stopping,

Claire x


  1. What a great card, Claire! Love the nautical motifs and the embossed background! Hugs

  2. This is a WOW! card. loving how you made your backgrounds, perfect combination of masculine touches, this is just perfect! So glad you were able to get in for one anyhow! Good luck in the prize drawing! will be back later to pin! :)

  3. I love all the texture you've added to your design! The embossing and wood veneer. twine and metal accents. SO masculine and so many perfect details!

  4. Very cool, Claire ... such great bold colours ... the wooden elements are perfect with the nautical feel of your card ... rather driftwood-ish ... fabulous! Anita :)

  5. Brilliant card. I love all the textural details - the embossed background and those fab little balsa wood circles. Love it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
