Umbrella Ride with House Mouse


Hello! Are you enjoying all of the fabulous House Mouse and Friends posts that have been going up this week? What wonderful, happy projects! For full details on the hop, plus the fabulous prizes that are up for grabs, please visit the House Mouse & Friends blog.

Directions:
1. Stamp Umbrella Ride House Mouse with Versafine ink in Onyx Black. Color with Tombow Dual Brush Markers as listed above. Fussy cut. 
2. Die cut Winter Lake cardstock from My Colors with the 4 1/2" x 3" Fitted Frame. Take the Picasso tool and place it near the top of the die cut. Apply a small amount of acrylic paint to your stencil brush, and rub off excess on to a paper towel. In a circular motion, apply the paint to the cloud portion of the stencil to the die cut. Move the tool around the entire die cut to complete the cloud background. 
3. Die cut the 1 1/2" x 1" Fitted Frame in Loveable cardstock. Stamp with sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set and emboss with Detail Black embossing powder. Edge the die cut with Versamark and emboss with Sparkle Blue from the Spring Sparkle Embossing Kit. 
4. For the card base, cut Pollen from Bazzil to 5 1/2" x 8" and fold in half. Tape Quatrefoil stencil to the card base, and with a sponge dauber, apply Dandelion Memento Ink to the outer edges of the card. You don't need to do the center because the large Fitted Frame will be there. Work quicky so that the ink doesn't dry completely, and apply Clear Lemon from the Summer Shine Kit. You do not need to have full coverage.
5. Attach all pieces except for the House Mouse with a flat adhesive. Use foam tape from Tombow to attach the mouse.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
