Patchwork on Day #10 at Beccy's Place + CTMH Class 11/10/2015

Before I go through the button box to make something for Day #11 at  Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards Challenge,  I did a bit of Patchwork, using an embossing folder and ink, for Day #10.  I even found an old, old CTMH stamp of a little mouse snuggled under a patchwork quilt to add. 
First I tried inking the embossing folder before running the paper through the cuttlebug.  But I found that sponging the paper after it was embossed gave me a cleaner look.  Beccy also has a great Patchwork Tutorial on her blog that is must try.  
Additional challenges:
Crafters Cafe Challenge - Inspired by a Song (Have yourself a merry little Christmas)
Fan Tastic Tuesday Challenge - Anything Goes + something beginning with "b" (Bow) 

We made another lovely group of Christmas cards at Joyce's CTMH class yesterday, welcomed a new crafter, (good to have you, Joann), and enjoyed a yummy apple pie (thanks, Mickey).
Here are the cards:



  1. Adorable card, Debi! The mouse is so cute! Your workshop cards are beautiful!

  2. very nice how your patchwork background matches the patchwork quilt, well done! Petra DT Beccy's Place

  3. I love your patchwork card Debi, it's fabulous! You got such a great result from sponging over the embossing, and I love the matching image of the little mouse snuggled under his patchwork blanket.
    The CTMH collection of cards you made with Joyce are wonderful. You've got a nice little stash of holiday cards to get you started!

  4. Fabulous, love the creations and gorgeous colours used.
