Happy Nurse’s Day!

May 6 is National Nurse’s Day and we wanted to say Thank You to the dedicated folks doing this really difficult job. Such caring and thoughtful workers deserve some Mousey Love and our House-Mouse friends have just the love they deserve. (Aren’t they looking sweet? Ellen drew little masks on them!)

We have several House-Mouse Designs® stamps perfect for honoring your favorite healthcare workers, or just for saying “Hope you Feel Better” to friends and family.

Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better

For our January release, Fran created several Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets that include a frame image with sentiments that fit into the frame for easy, beautiful cards. One of those is our lovely Wine Frame. A beautiful, and sometimes funny, way to invite your friends to join you for a virtual glass of something from grape juice to Cabernet.

Wine Frame Stamp Set Our Design Team had a great time sharing with this fun stamp set. Let’s take a look at what they made.

Give us COFFEE!

Find yourself drinking extra coffee these days? It’s so comforting and warm, we’ve been enjoying it and other hot drinks a lot this Spring. Our great new Coffee Frame Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set is perfect for sending coffee-inspired wishes to a friend. But it could easily be used to spread the joys of tea or hot chocolate, too. Pour another cup and join us!

This set has a great coffee cup and frame as one stamp. You can put any of the included greetings into the frame, or use a greeting of your own. Of course you can cut out the coffee cup shape and use it by itself on a card, as we’ve done here. This card features our gorgeous Peridot PEARLustre Embossing Powder on the background!

Or use the frame as a convenient shape for a shaker card! This one also features Doodles Paper Playground’s Pumpkin Spice Blend. So blingy and shakeable! Garnet PEARLustre Embossing Powder is used on the background of this card.

Our Design Team has been sharing cards with this great coffee frame all week! Check out their posts and leave them some sweet comments.
