Mousey Mischief with House Mouse

The Stampendous team is playing with some of the cutest little creatures out there this week....House Mouse! Or...mice.... Now, my regular followers know that I prefer the creepy to the cute, but I just cannot resist the stamps from House Mouse Designs! When I owned my scrapbooking and stamping store, I was sure to always have some House Mouse stamps in stock. My sister Pam's birthday was this past weekend, and she adores House Mouse, so I knew I needed to use one for her Birthday card. This little cutie is certainly up to some Mousey Mischief.

 I used the Cupcake Jump stamp for my card. Who wouldn't want to jump into a cupcake? I colored this cutie with my Tombow watercolor markers. I also used a sentiment from the Birthday Assortment Perfectly Clear set.

For my background, I sprayed the Graduated Dot Dreamweaver stencil with yellow and teal Dylusions spray (and I was sure to flip the sprayed stencil on to a new sheet of paper so I have the negative image for a later use). I trimmed it and attached it to my card. With the extra space I had on my card base, I applied some Texture gems fro Faber-Castell and sprinkled all of the colors from the Hot Fragments Kit on top and let it dry. I also used the Texture Gems to draw a line around my Mouse and I dropped some Teal glitter from the Spring Micro Glitter Kit on top.

Below are the other ladies that are posting their Mousey Mischief today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
