House Mouse 'Dandelion Bouquet'

Hi all :-) It's time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

For the next 2 weeks I am the hostess and I chose 


ANYTHING GOES
with the option of
SPRING COLORS 

The most important thing is to have fun with House Mouse, Gruffie and Happy Hopper images!

I used a super cute Dandelion Bouquet Cling Stamp, aren't they adorable ;-)



I coloured with Copic Markers and added a dab or 3 of sStar Dust Stickles here and there. For the background I used a Your Next Stamp Large Ink Splatter stamp, inked with Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide Ink.


and I finished the inside 


Thanks for looking!

As You Like It.  Fave way to add a sentiment, I like to heat emboss, preferably directly onto the card or onto a banner. Heat embossing gives it a lovely gloss and makes it more special.

Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit and a discount!

Hi all, I am about a month late with a card made using the February Card Kit but I was visiting Simon HQ and didn't have a kit, so better late than never eh ;-) The kit is no longer available but you can still buy the products separately and if you order before MN, EST tonight than you can get a 15% Discount to everything in the store! 




I used the same embossing folder to make the background and then run it through the Big Shot again to make the embossing a bit less prominent, makes it easier to write on ;-) I also used the extra bit of die cut square to finish it off. 



Thanks for looking!

Simon Says Stamp is celebrating 15 years of business!! Woo Hoo!! Well done Heidi and team Simon! You have all worked so hard and have brought so much to the word of crafting! THANK YOU :-) 

This code will finish tonight so you had better be quick! Simon has never had such a sale before so grab it while you can ;-)

Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit Card!

❤️ Happy Valentine's Day ❤️
I hope you are all spoiled rotten with lots of flowers, chocolates, and champagne ;-) 

It isn't very often that my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit arrives before the grand reveal on the 14th of every month, but this time I was able to pick up my March 'Choose Joy' Kit in person from Simon HQ!! 

I arrived home on Monday after a fabulous 2 weeks stay  and had an absolutely fabulous time. Everyone made me feel so welcome.

THANK YOU HEIDI, STEPHANIE  and all at Simon HQ XXX 


I coloured the bunny and carrot with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I used the striped stamp on the 'other' stamp set in the kit and inked with 2 colours of green oxide inks,  I splattered with Black Marble and Tumbled Glass Spray Inks and when it was dry I popped the little bunny on there, adding a Pom-Pom for his bunny tail. 


and I finished the inside. 


Thanks for looking!

,,,,and here is the whole kit! Please CLICK HERE or on the pic to go straight to the store.
This kit is extra special in that it has not one but two stamp sets! One designed by the lovely Kristina Werner, and the one I used designed by the equally lovely Nina Marie Trapiani, which is the one I used today. I will be back with a Kristina inspired one asap ;-)
