Even the Mice Were Stirring

Even the Mice Were Stirring



Whilst most of Anita Jeram restocks flew out as fast as they came back in, we do still have the odd one or two left including Wonderful Time Stamp from the latest release which was my favourite as I thought it would be fun to do a layered card and have the mice preparing for Christmas inside the skirting boards a-la Tom & Jerry.   This image was the perfect flip for me on the traditional line of "nothing was stirring not even a mouse" from Twas the Night Before Christmas.



I stamped the image onto white card and coloured with copics - starting with the background using shades of grey to create a dark mousehole for them to be trimming the tree in.  Once the images were all coloured I created the rest of the "wall", woodgrain paper for the floorboards, grey card layered up for the skirting board and then a hole cut out with an oval die, and more paper for wallpaper at the top.  I used a scrap from trimming the skirting to stamp the sentiment onto which comes from the same stamp.



  • The dies to go with these latest Anita Jeram stamps have just arrived at CCC HQ so we placed our order and are awaiting a shipping date.   We've re-ordered the stamps we sold out of too but don't know as yet what (if any) are currently available.

  • Our Concord & 9th order has been sitting in Customs Clearance hell in the USA since the 13th November.   We are doing our best between us and C9 to get it moving but customs procedures are getting harder and harder at the moment and it is slowing down a lot of our deliveries.

  • We have received the latest releases from Newton's Nook, Waffle Flower Crafts and the "non-exclusive" items from the MFT Card Kit and will be working yet another Sunday to try and get them online today.  If not they will be added this week as soon as I can fit them in around order packing which as ever takes number one priority to ensure the gap between you paying us and shipping your goods is as short as we can possibly make it.

Catch you next week
