House Mouse #30


Good Evening, hope all is well with you. I've made this card for the House Mouse Challenge. This week's challenge was to make a shape card. Well I've was particularly excited to do this challenge since I just purchased a set of shape cards from The Cutting Cafe'. If you haven't heard of this company before, please check them out. They offer digital images for download. Now, I LOVE my stamps, and never thought I would like the digital images. To me they weren't "real" stamps, but I have since changed my mind. First I discovered the digital Anya's, and now The Cutting Cafe. They have some of the cutest images available. And they have great prices. Ok, now that I'm done gushing over these stamps onto my card. I got a whole set of shaped cards, and was dying to use them. I've never done a shape card before, and it was so fun. The House Mouse Image is the January Stamp of the Month. I colored him with prismacolor pencils and used their colorless blender. The marshmallows and the steam are in Crystal Stickles. I used my oval nesties to cut the image out. And the scalloped oval nesties to mat. The white CS is GP, from walmart, the colored CS is DCWV. The ribbon is from my stash, and I did accent around the mat with Crystal Stickles. Thanks for looking, and have a great evening.
