Hot, Hot, Hot House Mouse Card



 I am doing
the "stick it" or "decoupage" challenge again today. As before, I fussy cut each of the layers out and then gluing the images on top of each layer till there is a stack of them. This is the kit I purchased for decoupage from the official HouseMouse.com site. These images are hilarious today with the House Mouse breathing flames!! And the cards are really very professional looking after all is said and done.

I layered them together very precisely and used Beacons 3 in 1 adhesive which is thick and clear. I got a better layering using that glue and it didn't change the composition of the shiny paper like many other adhesives like the Art Glitter glue that I also like to use. The card was made with old DCWV paper and twine. The small flowers are from Recollections and Hobby Lobby, all from my stash in my room. Hope you enjoy the card.

House Mouse Recipe Decoupage card



 I decided that "stick it" could also mean "decoupage" which is gluing the images on top of each layer of images till there is a stack of them. Awaze back, I purchased the decoupage kit of many of the House Mouse images on the official HouseMouse.com site. They were on shiny paper and it really was fun to fussy cut all of them out. Though it took me a long time to get each card's images all cut with no white on the edge, it felt fulfilling to see them all done before I layered each with glue and to look more 3D. The images are always funny with the House Mice getting into their antics!! And the cards are really very professional looking after all is said and done.

I layered them together very precisely and used Beacons 3 in 1 adhesive which is thick and clear. I got a better layering using that glue and it didn't change the composition of the shiny paper like many like the Art Glitter glue that I also like to use. The card is with Prima Marketing pattern paper and May Arts lace. The small "thanks" die cut is from Altenew and done with shiny purple that I had in my stash. Hope you enjoy the card.

Creek Bank Creation Tunnel Card with Candy






 Creek Bank Creations came out with their Tunnel Card Die and I had to have it! Well, they now have the Tunnel Card Insert that makes a drawer that fits Hershey Nuggets perfectly!! So here is one of my Father's Day cards to my hubby and filled with Hershey's newest nuggets that have Toffee and Almonds! I had to taste test to make sure that were edible and oh yes, I believe that they are after eating around 8 of them!! Yum! The "happy" die comes with the new insert and so does "birthday" which is not used here. Totally a game changer to have even gift cards underneath the chocolate!! Great dies and so enjoyed making this!! Hope you enjoy your weekend and stay cool in this crazy hot summer we are having!!

Products Used:  Creek Bank Creations Tunnel card base; Creek Bank Creations Tunnel card drawer. I watched her video and it was so easy to do!!

Fancy Pants Park Bench sketch Layout


Scrap Our Stash May Sketch Challenge-must use butterflies. I used 3.


 Using Fancy Pants Park Bench collection papers (from 2012), I put this sketch together. First, I was on vacation away from my scrap tools, so I used a kitchen bowl and plate to make the inner and outer circle for the sketch. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves from a pattern paper in the collection. for the circle at the bottom, I found that a journal label fit best. These pics were so needing to be scrapped and am so happy to have this beautiful layout to showcase our time together.

Carta Bella Yacht Club Layout



 May Scrap Our Stash

I stamped the rope with the old Discontinued Darcie Stamp New Horizons.


First I used the sketch upside down. Papers were Carta Bella Yacht Club pattern paper called Ship at Sea for its cruise ship against blue skies image that fit this theme of a photo from 22 years ago! The wave paper is Whale of a Tale. The Post card paper is Yacht Cards. I stamped the rope and fussy cut and added those pieces on the banner. The tag was cut from the Yacht Cards as well. I pieced the circle on top and added double string twine. Added the white corrugated star to balance the layout. 
I made this to match my other page to in essence make it a double pager.
Here is how they look together.
