House Mouse !!

Okay, here are some of the cards I have been working on just recently. I`ve really fallen for the House Mouse stamps - aren`t they just adorable? All the images have been stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and then clear embossed or Memento Ink. I tried to keep the cards simple so all the focus would be on the image.

I cut the image out using Labels Ten and mounted it onto Labels Eight.

On this card I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and a scallop corner rounder. The sentiment was Memory Box and cut out using Labels Thirteen.

On the "Jelly Bean Heist" card I used the new Spellbinder Scalloped Border and layered it up. The tear shape jems fitted quite perfectly.

This card was mounted onto the Petite ovals and Petite Oval Scallops. I embossed Labels Eight onto the white card stock for alittle more detail. I`m not sure if you can see, but I have put a small amount of glitter on the cards to give alittle sparkle!

On this card I used a piece of burlap. I thought it looked abit like the coffee sack in the picture!
These stamps are a pleasure to colour in and you always end up with great results!
Well, my parents are arriving from the UK on Thursday for a five week stay, so I shall close and get on with some cleaning and tidying of the house.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful day.

Lottie !

Well, Sunday already; where did the weekend go? We`re having a real lazy day today, its great!
My DH went off diving with the sealions this weekend to Hornby Island and by all accounts has had a fantastic time. I shall post some photographs later this week.
Anyway onto the card. I was really pleased with the way this turned out. Its the first time and the only one I have ! of The Greeting Farm stamps. I love the way "Lottie" just sits on the side of the frame. All the DP is Basic Grey Origins. When you use such nice paper you don`t really need alot else on the card. I made the frame using the new Labels 11 and the sentiment is from JustRite. Lottie is stamped in Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder, then coloured in with Copic Markers. The butterflies and flower in the corner are all made using MS punches.

Thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful day.
