House Mouse Stamps and Cards
Hi and welcome!
I am sharing a couple of recently made cards I was inspired to make using my stash of lovable House Mouse Stamps. I must admit that these little guys go by neglected in my crafty projects, but I am always pleased with the results when I use them.
The first is a Birthday Card I made using
Ballooning for Berries (Mudpie)
Released May 1999, and it features some beautiful hummingbirds.
I stamped it in Gray Stayz-on Ink onto Kraft cardstock, and colored is using Prismacolor Pencils.
The results were subtle, and vibrant at the same time. For the berries, a little drop of Ranger Glossy Accents did the trick to make them shine!
For the inside, I stamped confetti with Oxide Inks from Ranger, and a sentiment from Heidi Swapp.
The second card is actually a Post Card. Fort the base, I used my Santoro London Gorguss Girl Die set to make the Post Card.Then I stamped the image from
July 2001 Design of the Month
Mice Cream Cone
This was sent to my son in Summer Camp, so the sentiment I stamped using Elsie Stamps (Josie), were perfect!
I also colored this image with Prismacolor Pencils and a dash of Glossy Accents. Their little tongues with shiny gloss made me giggle. The cone was nice and shiny also!
Thank you for stopping by to share in my crafty makes. I hope that you can
Be inspired, Be Blessed!
Here is a Video with a little chat and some process of how I made the cards.
