Since the projects in the mouse kits are 3-D this month, I had to photograph the samples instead of scanning. I hope they turn out to be presentable. The first card is a windshieldwiper card. It does fold flat to mail. The second card is an easel card which also folds flat to mail. And the third card is a belted card. I used Copic markers to color all of them, but you could use watercolor pencils with a blender pen, or Prismacolor pencils with gamisol and blending stumps. All cardstock is Stamp Express quality cardstock. Designer paper is by BoBunny. Ribbon is May Arts, and the button is just from my stash. You can order the kits with the stamps at our on-line store now! Everyone loves the mice! Sign up for the Mouselicious morning on April 30 to work with the May mouse of the month.
These cards with the March Housemouse of the month came out so cute, I don’t know which one I like best! The first one uses 2 textures of embossing folders. On Cor’dinations cardstock, when you lightly sand the image it stands out in a lighter color. You can order this cardstock at our on-line store. The next card features a unique diagonal layer and a banner with the words. And the third selection has a woven paper background and ribbon accent. If you choose to order the stamps and the kits for making all 3 projects, it is just $20. Go to our on-line store now. These make adorable Easter cards, spring birthday cards and thinking of you notes. We colored ours with Copic markers, but you could use watercolor pencils and a blender pen or Prismacolor pencils, gamisol and a blending stump. We included Copic cardstock in our kits. You can also order extra sheets at our store. Have to go now and get a yummy jellybean snack!
These stamps will be the “apple of your eye” for September cards and scrapbook pages. The House Mouse of the month this time is really “a-peeling”, especially if you like coloring and blending with the Copic markers. Below are 2 samples of the same stamp. We mounted one on a big apple and put the words inside. The second one is quite simple with a scored and sanded frame on Colorcore cardstock. Words that match this stamp are ” an apple a day keeps the mice at play”. How cute is that? Come to the store to see more examples. One is a t-slider card that was too complicated to show here, but very clever. If you LOVE these mice, sign up for the next Mouseketeers class and create some projects of your own. It’s always the last Tuesday of the month. And in addition to snacking on crackers and cheese, you also go home with the stamps
