Colorado Craft Company – Catch a Falling Star Release

Hi Friends!

I’m excited to celebrate Anita Jeram’s 1 year birthday with Colorado Craft Company! To make her special mice special, this release includes extra large mice images in 6″ x 6″ stamp sets. They are so adorable, I simply couldn’t just choose one. So I ended up using images from all three sets and made 3 similar cards using Twinkle Little Star, Falling Star, and A Star Is Born.

I love the way Yana Smakula colors her spotted mice, so I tried to do the same. I used Copic markers to color all the mice and stars from the three sets. The same Copic markers are use for the stars and the mice. Then I ink-blended them all in the same way with varying shades of blues and purples using Distress Oxide Inks.

Browns:  E0000, E30, E31, E33, E37
Pink:  R20
Yellows:  Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24

My first card uses the Twinkle Little Star set. For the background, I ink-blended Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch. I decided to use a different sentiment for this card and used a sentiment from the Falling Star set.

This second card uses the Falling Star set. Each set has a few loose stars and 1-2 large stars. This card is ink-blended with Salty Ocean, Prize Ribbon, and Chipped Sapphire for a darker blend than on the first card.

My final card uses the A Star is Born set. I love the theme of these sets! This card uses Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, and the newly-revealed Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Inks.

All of the panels are sprayed with water, and then splattered with white paint to give it a galaxy/sky look for more interest and texture. I stamped the sentiments on each panel and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then, I finished by attaching the main images (mice and large stars) with foam adhesive, then the smaller ones with liquid adhesive directly to the ink-blended panels.


To celebrate this line’s 1 year anniversary, there are two special giveaways!

GIVEAWAY 1: Colorado Craft Company will be doing a very special giveaway of an autographed bookplate and the book Guess How Much I Love You to a randomly selected stamper. There will be more information about this soon. Stay updated on the Colorado Craft Company blog.

GIVEAWAY 2:  I will select one winner to receive the Dream Big Mini stamp set. I didn’t use this set, but will link it below so you can see it. I’ll select the winner and notify them. The giveaway ends on the 21st at midnight mountain time. Winners will be announced on the Colorado Craft Company blog on the 23rd of October.


Thank you all for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed these cards and that you love these Big Anita mice! All the supplies are listed below.
