House Mouse Stampin'

I love House Mouse stamps. They were some of the first stamps I ever played with. My first calendar set was made with House Mouse stamps. They are cute and fun to paint. I've been cleaning up my scrapbooking room (pictures to follow in another post) and ran across my rather large bag of House Mouse stamps. I decided to take a break from our Texana Designs stamps and make a few card with the House Mouse stamps. Here are two and I have a few more I want to paint.

I stamped them with VersaMark and Black Memento ink (I agree that Memento is the best ink to use with Copic markers) and embossed with Ranger Clear embossing powder. I'm not the best painter and embossing the image helps stay inside the lines, but I still slip from time to time (no looking too close!!). Ugh! It drives me crazy, but not crazy enough to start over!! I just received the new "Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink in all eight colors. They are beautiful. I painted the umbrellas and noses and outlined the flowers with them. I used Core'dinations Paper with the Cuttlebug and some bling.

Maggie is coming over today to help with Kenny's graduation announcements. I always welcome her visual gift!!

Those are adorable! Isn't it fun to find something, dig it out and love using it?

Wow, I Love both cards ... great color combinations. I guess, Spring cleaning isn't all bad, if you found some HMD stamps. Keep on stampin' on.
