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!

My Book of Special Memories Mini Album with Tonic Studios Dies

Hi friends,  I am here with a brand new set of dies from Tonic Studios and yet another adorable mini album! This one is perfect for a little girl, a mother of a little girl, or a cat lover, or all of the above! I am thrilled with this collection of dies, and how easily I am able to put paper on pages to assemble the perfect little personalized gift!

On the cover, and throughout, I have used the  CUTE GIRL collection from Crate Paper. As a cat-lover, I could not resist, and the floral designs were easy to repeat with the layered Tonic die-cut that I assembled and colored using Nuvo Pens and Nuvo Glitter pen. The little roses all have some sparkle!

The cluster of flowers is all handmade by yours truly, and I used Sizzix Dies by Tim Holtz, felt, and small pearls that I stitched together.  The cat, butterfly, and flower buttons helped me complete the look. Adorable!!

The spine of a book is equally as important as the front. So for this, I used all the little strips left over from my favor…

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
