Curios are Here!

Curios Banner

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.

Here’s a closeup look at a few more of these darling stamps:

April Showers and House-Mouse Designs®

Crocus Droplet by Kristine Reynolds

It’s Friday, and our April Showers are just about over! All this week we’ve outfitted ourselves with boots, and cute sayings stamps, layers of umbrellas and let the rain fall with stencils so today we get to play in the rain with our House-Mouse Designs characters and still stay dry!

Monica mouse is so thirsty she takes the chance of a few raindrops crashing upon her nose so she can drink the fresh water from a Crocus bloom.

HMP64 Crocus Droplet Stamp

And here are more rainy scenes of the House-Mouse characters from Ellen Jareckie!

These mice know when to weather the stormy skies or create their own precipitation for their outdoor adventures. You can stop by the House-Mouse Designs section of our website to see the entire collection or go to the New House-Mouse Designs section in our What’s New section.

There are still more projects for our April Shower theme from our design team!
