More Mousey Mischief with House Mouse and Dreamweaver

Greetings! It's time for some more Mousey Mischief with the Stampendous Design Team. Since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, we have all incorporated some fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils along with the sweet House Mouse Designs images. For my project today, I created a back to school card for one of my kids.

I used School Supplies for my House Mouse stamp. I love that he's juggling with his feet! I used one of the Nesting Frames dies from Dreamweaver to cut the image out. I kept the die in place and applied some Summer Sky Versa Color ink with a sponge dauber around the perimeter. When I removed the die, I had a thin white border around the edge. The stamped image itself was colored with my Tombow markers.

For my background, I used the Lg Chunky Tools stencil, which is becoming a fast favorite of mine. I used Smokey Gray ink and a dauber to use only the pencil portion of the stencil. I put it all over randomly. I should also mention that my background had some excess ink from the Mosaic Swirls stencil. I had sprayed it with purple, slapped it on to some cardstock, and the leftver is what you see in my background. Just subtle splotches of color.

I used the same Summer Sky ink on my card base, around the edge. My sentiment was created by using the Small Typewriter Perfectly Clear set. It's super easy to work with, and it's just the right size for cards. Below is a list of all my Stampendous teamies that have projects to share with you 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!
