First House Mouse Submission

So I have always loved the House Mouse line of stamps from stampability and they have been on the list of things to buy for a while. However after my blogstalking resulting in finding the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge I had to splurge. I am REALLY certain that the definition of addict is to make a special trip to the stamp store for a challenge you think sounds like fun. I am so full of excuses.

So the challenge was to use multiple images on your project in any way you wanted. I ended up with 2 versions of my card and don't know which one I like better so I am posting them both. They both have several uses of multple images.

  1. I had to stamp each image multiple times to get all the details to show up the way I wanted

  2. I wanted to make the lollipops stand out so I stamped the image first on cardstock, then again onto white vellum. I cut the vellum lollipop wrappers out so they are a little crinkley like real suckers would be.

  3. In one card I sent cut out a 2nd bunny too.

So both cards are on CTMH cardstock, coloured with their inks and I used a sentiment from them as well. Dollar store ribbon. To make the lollipops shiney and have some definition I added some Glossy accents, and it doesn't show up very well on the picture but the cup is painted with Vanilla Bean twinkling H2Os. Also I wanted to have some dimension in the sucker sticks they are embossed with a plain white.

I am glad I found this website ladies, you are going to get a christmas card for next week because that was the only other house mouse stamp that our store has in stock (apparently they can't keep them on the shelf right now!!).
