Hot Summer House Mouse Keeping it Cool




Super excited to be back on my blog with my art work and had to start with my fav' Stampendous House Mouse Umbrella Shade stamp (SKU #: HMCP47). I colored it up with my copics. I wanted to try some of what I learned with Sandy Allnook's lessons and decided that that I was going for him having water. Also added bit more rosy cheeks "from the sun!" I stamped summer images onto the envelope to match with the theme of my card to match up with the House Mouse Challenge #295.

The Stamp Market Bear Hugs Trio Thank you card

 Inspired by Kathy Racoosin and her The Daily Marker 30 Day, I have been coloring each day and playing along as she shows us what she is doing. I used it to color these adorable bears from The Stamp Market called Bear Hugs, with Copics and then added swirls like Kathy with Primacolor pencils that are very sharp.

Stampendous House Mouse Birthday Trio Card



Using my MISTI tool by My Sweet Petunia, I stamped with Memento Ink in Tuxedo black. I then colored the happy, whimsical trio of Stampendous House Mouse image called with Copic Markers. Shaded and die cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals die, and regular oval die to make the frame.
Next, using the new blush brushes I blended with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides so to match the coloring.
I also shaded the edge of the die cut oval doing the same with Mermaid Lagoon DO.
Last I shaded the bottom of the card with Lemon DO after adding Authentique papers for the theme. Also, after blending another piece of white Neenah cardstock with the Mermaid Lagoon and die cut it with Penny Black celebratory sentiments.


This was so fun and is going to make a great birthday card for someone special.

Creek Bank Creations Slider Hero card


LOVE making these Creek Bank Creations slider cards! I purchased these dies that make multi curves or straight and different lengths, and then a package of slider glides at Orlando Stampfest last June 2018. Have really enjoyed adding this theme to my cards ever since! Here's my Father's Day card to my loving husband, My Hero! I added a mirror card stock to frame my card and as the background for my card. Also used DCWV's Zodiac paper stack again as well!
