EEEK! Mice have been invading the Stampendous blog all this week, and today they’re running rampant with Dreamweaver as well! Of course, we’re referring to our favorite House Mouse Designs® which are perfectly paired with Dreamweaver backgrounds and even embossing paste. As an example, here is Kristine Reynold’s “Potted Mouse”, using the perfect coordinating background… the Dreamweaver Black-eyed Susans stencil, paste-embossed, and ink-stenciled on top.
Follow the tiny mouse footprints to the rest of the team’s posts for more Dreamweaver/Stampendous fun:
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.
If you know about House-Mouse Designs then you know the rabble-rouser in the group. He is at every gathering of mischief makers, but this mouse has more genuine motives to bring them all together as well, like taking photos of family and friends.
Maxwell and his set up for a perfect picture is Operation See Cheese instead of the usual say cheese tactic. I wonder how long the nibble of cheese will last before someone snatches it away for a snack. I hope he brought enough to share!
Jennie Lin Black created a centered focus on Maxwell rising to new heights with his cheese plan. What a fabulous job and another fantastic sentiment to go along with this beautifully colored image from Happy Greetings Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.
It is certain we will be seeing more of our mischief leader Maxwell this week and around some more today on these designer’s projects —
It’s going to be a week of summer mischief with House-Mouse Designs stamps from our April 2015 catalog. These mice are quite resourceful and creative when left to their own devices and our design team have some amazing projects to show for it. Join us as we capture Maxwell, Amanda, Mudpie and Monica creating a little mousey mischief.
Here’s the group resting with a prize slice of watermelon with full tummies and smiling from their feast. Mudpie is having a little fun spitting seeds no doubt waiting until he’s made room for another bite of watermelon.
Paired with a perfect mousey sentiment this stamp will make a super any occasion greeting card. Jennie Lin Black created this amazing card using a sentiment from Mice Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. Click on the image or caption for more details on how she created this project.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the shenanigans these mice are up to on today’s designer projects!
Create Fall week is coming to a finish with a visit from some furry friends and their own twist on the theme. Our fall-themed House-Mouse Designs® collection is growing by two with these new stamps and it seems they are falling for fall.
These four friends are taking turns in their own mousey version of paragliding for some real Fall fun. They make any adventure look like fun!
Monica brings childhood memories to mind with a leaf pile plunge to enjoy the colorful brilliance of the Fall season foliage.
There are two more stamps already in our fall House-Mouse Design collection that would make a great card set or framed art decor.
As our House-Mouse friends would have it, their adventure continues next week with Mousey Mischief stamps so come back and see us next week! Until then let’s hop on over to these designer projects for some fall-abulous projects —
