Mousies Make Me Smile!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Ohhhh how I LOVE my House Mouse!!!!!  Here are a few of my recent mousie cards!!!


I just love these SWEET mousies and decided to make 2 completely different looks with the candy canes!!!  I had to first go with a traditional red and white candy cane design!!  And then just because it's Spring (well not here, but for some of you! LOL) I had to do some fun bright colors on another card!!!  I made these as birthday cards because I'll use any design year round!!!  LOL



I used my favorite cardstock of course....Gina K. Pure Luxury in White, Red Hot, Wild Dandelion, Ocean Mist and Sweet Mango.  The dp is Paper Studio Sugar & Spice.  I love the sweet Martha Stewart Heart border punch too!!!  I use my beloved Copics for coloring and still need a lot of practice in shading, etc....but I sure do love coloring with them!!!


And this one is for my daughter.....she LOVES tea!!!  It's a bit hard to tell but there's just a touch of Stickles on each sugar cube!!!  LOL  I used Pure Luxury in White, Bubblegum Pink, Grass Green, Lovely Lavender and Wild Dandelion.  Of course my Copics to color!!!  And some bling.....ALLLLLLLLWAYS some bling from me of course!!! 

Well.....besides doing some general cleaning and re-organizing of my Stamp Room.....I make sure to get some stampin' time in almost every day!!!!  Especially on days I don't feel well......it makes me smile to stamp!!!

Now PLEASE also join us over at Splitcoaststampers to play in VSN - Virtual Stamp Night!!!  It's this Friday and Saturday!!!!  Check out all the deets on the Virtual Stamp Night Forum!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Oooo lookeee at another fabulous Spellbinder's Nestability matching stamp!!!!  This one is designed by Gina and oh so pretty!!!!


I am loving this color combination of the Smoky Slate and the Innocent Pink Pure Luxury!!  I stamped the image in black and fussy cut it and then used the matching Labels 16 to cut out the pink layer.  I colored the image with Copics and of course added a bit 'o' bling!!!!  ;)  This is a 4x4 notecard size....perfect to go with a gift and quick to make!!

  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Black, Red Hot
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Vivid Brick
  • Accessories: Glitter, Ribbon, Pearls
Had to make some rockin' dp in red and black......this set just screamed Pure Luxury Red Hot and Black to me!  The glittered drum panel is more red than it looks in the light with the glitter glare! LOL  I don't know if it shows up well but the black panel is embossed with the Allegro CB Folder.  This set is utter fun for those teen designs especially!!!

The "Love" sentiment fits perfectly  with Nina's set Lovely Labels 2, so I couldn't resist just a sweet Spring card to send some Love to someone special!!  I used Pure Luxury in White, Wild Dandelion and Innocent Pink along with  dp.  Just a few pearls and some of my favorite ribbon finish it off....it's actually quite CAS.....well for me it is!!!  LOL

  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
