The design team has their mittens on and shaping up some snowball creations for this week and we can’t wait for the fun to begin.

We are enjoying the last days of summer this week with our mischievous mice theme. During this time of year there are vacations and celebrations that any of the House-Mouse stamps would help set the stage for your handmade card and scrapbook projects.
We can imagine this Teacup Sailing stamp would be great used on so many different water themed scrapbook pages. Amanda, Muzzy and Mudpie have expertly set sail for any kind of trip even if it’s only in the kitchen sink!
Here is a sweet sailing birthday card for those seafaring folks in your life. Jennie Lin Black created a beautiful floral color theme and, wow, we love the teacup reflections, too! More details about this card can be found on our website by clicking on the image or caption below it. By the way of sailing vessels, that the sentiment on Jennie’s card is from the Mice Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamps Set that happens to have another cute mousey sailor with snug hull boat.
With so many adventures by these mice we have oodles of stamps with summer in mind. Check out these stamps on our website with projects from our design team for inspiration. Just click on the captions to get there.
Speaking of which, our fabulous design team is also sharing more inspiration on their blogs!
Welcome back to our week of mousey mischief and the crew of House-Mouse characters. Amanda, Maxwell, Mudpie and Monica are hanging around together for some adventures in crafts and leisure that are sure to be fun.
This foursome spotted bright colored beads and decided to take up the art of jewelry design.
Just look at the colorful choices of jewelry in this card by Kristine Reynolds. The beautiful bead-like pattern paper on her card was done with a Dreamweaver stencil embossed then distressed on coordinating paper. Find out more about the supplies and instructions for Kristine’s card project on our website.
All four mice find warmth in the pockets of hanging jeans on the clothesline after an acrobatic effort to get to them. I’m guessing it’s a great spot to rest with a bird’s eye view to their next adventure.
Creating for fall is so much fun, and when there is a video for your spring board it fuels your creativity to for plethora of projects. As we would have it, you can get a fantastic start creating with Fran Seiford in this video demonstrating the Create Fall stamps and die cuts. She’ll share oodles of techniques and a trick in her hat design so you can make a Stampendous Impression every time. Let’s check it out!
So many great projects were shared in the video that we added a few here in this post so you can get a close-up view. The kitty in Cling Create Fall has a friend from our Cling Pop Up Forest Stamp Set visiting the pumpkin patch in this card and it sure looks like a lot of fun.
Do you have time to climb up or swing in a tree with us? We have just the right products to take you back to childhood memories of backyard adventures, if you do. Come join us for our tree house theme this week.
First up are these friends of the forest who have come together to play in our Cling Pop Up Forest Stamp Set. These adorable animals are accompanied by a fun hollow tree trunk and a healthy limb full of leaves to have a forest of great cards and this stamp set is designed to work with our Pop Up Die Set for dimensional card making a breeze.
Here is the inside of a card designed by Fran Seiford that shows just the beginning of the many different scenes you can create with this stamp set for some incredibly unique cards. Oh boy, It looks like these woodland creatures are drawn to someone having a great birthday as they sit on neatly cut tree branches.
To achieve these nicely cut out images, you can use the coordinating Pop Up Forest Die Set that will cut down the time it takes to put it all together.
We have this great video on how to use our stamp set and it’s coordinating dies with great tips and techniques.
Hang out with our designers today while they show you their tree-mendous projects
We have had so much fun being on our wild adventure with you this week that we are certain is isn’t time to stop! There is at least one more day of inspiration at least and then we’ll be on to our next theme that has something to do with magical gardens, but for today we will be taking a dive into the exotic water region of our wild week with our PenPattern Angel Fish.
We have some open spaces on this delicate angel fish that could use a doodlie doo, too. Don’t all fish from the deep so?
Did you see this beautiful card from Pam Hornschu earlier this month? Wow. It’s just amazing! You can stop by her blog here to see it posted during our Doodlie Doe week or use the project page on our website here. The background paper is amazing and her doodles define the body stripes of the fish amazingly.
We have a growing collection of PenPattern images so along with the first release we shared this video to help get the creative juices flowing with these stamps. It is a great overview of just how fun these images can be. Enjoy!
Our last three collaborations have had a a special giveaway from our Australian distributor The Stencil Specialists, we are so thankful that they wanted to play along and widen our giveaway base. If you make your store orders locally in Australia, then we sure would recommend them. Stop by their website to see what all that they offer and also their blog where they share some really neat projects using them. Recently they have been sharing some wonderful projects on their blog using our stamps and essentials and with such a great style on each one we decided to share a few here on the blog today. To see all of them though, go to their blog posts here and here! Let’s see a couple projects that Julie created for their blog.
The Angel Fish is phenomenal in gold embossing and colored with metallic gel pens and all on such a colorful base.
This is so simple, but it has an amazing effect in design when done right. The pop of background color is genius, Julie, just genius! If that only filled your mood board half full then we have more to fill it up the rest of the way with our designers posting their projects today.
Our team sometimes posts Thursday for our Dreamweaver spotlight that also includes our theme for the week. If you haven’t seen those gorgeous samples, they really are worth hopping over to check them out on this blog post!
We are getting into the rhythm of being on this wild adventure of spotting our PenPattern animals in the world “wild” web. Each stamp comes in wood mount or cling rubber mount to meet the needs of our valuable customers.
Our PenPattern Zebra may seem like all the doodles have naturally been done, but there is still a coat of many colors to be added and even a chance to doodle in color between those stripes! The choice is up to you to decide, liven up a birthday card, or scrapbook page with a realistic zebra or one in magical rainbow technicolor.
This wild birthday card is showing our PenPattern Zebra in it’s natural beauty just slightly colored for effect, because colorist and class instructor Jennie Lin Black who created this sweet card, definitely knows just the right amount of color to add to an image. I guess this time her advice would be less is more!
There is one more four-legged wild animal to see on our adventure today, it is PenPattern Lion surveying his pride and maybe waiting for a few majestic doodle lines to be added to his mane. You can imagine him as well in all sorted kinds of tangles and doodles, colors and patterns that will create such a great card with some of our Wild Saying Perfectly Clear Stamps for the voice behind the lion.
Designer Pam Hornschu posted her PenPattern Lion card on Monday and we just think it’s the cat’s meow of cards of our lion, so we are showing it off here on our blog as well. Just look at those special freckle doodles all over, it’s really a brilliant doodle idea! She also mixed in some Dreamweaver I-Beam stencil and Monstera Leaf die to make this card quite fantastic.
Here is the line up of projects from our safari design crew today, We know you are going to love them!
All well-behaved pets form a line at the pet wash! Oh how we love the character of each stamp in our House-Mouse Designs® collection of stamps. Today we have a very willing participant in a pet wash which could be more willing to wash away the remains of a polecat caught off guard.
Monica, Amanda, Mudpie and Maxwell are such good friends to help in the effort and even a dog treat to calm the puppies nerves.
Lea Kimmel created this fantastic colored card. Just look at the detail in the puppies coat of fur!
There is another pet today that is perfectly wet and loving it. Our Goldfish Pair are enjoying a little swim together in the aquarium. The goldfish design lends to coloring them in any exotic breed and you might have seen
These perfect pets were colored with the no-line technique by Lea Kimmel, she’s a popular designer today on our blog isn’t she, and we absolutely adore the end results and to figure our how she did all the great techniques, go to the project page by clicking on the image or caption below it.
We have a wonderful line up of projects to see we hope it inspires you for your perfect pet creation.
