2017_spring_hm

We are back into the swing of spring today with House-Mouse clan in the flower garden. Let’s see what these mischievous mice are doing among the lovely flowers.

The flower garden is looking good for these House-Mouse characters and yet we still have more to see from these mice with our design team sharing on their blogs this week.

Spring Friends for House-Mouse

2017_spring_hm

Spring time brings friends together, and in anticipation of those gatherings outside with family and friends, we have a full week of House-Mouse Designs to encourage spring while we craft up projects in our spare time.

Our House-Mouse characters today are spending time with a few of their friends, enjoying the outdoors with fun activities.

 

 

House-Mouse Designs are the creation of the talented Ellen Jareckie, and we are thrilled to be providing her artwork as stamps in wood mount or our exclusive Stampendous Cling Mount Rubber. Visit our website to see a full collection of  House-Mouse, Gruffies, and HappyHoppers friends who celebrate year round in sweet and mischievous ways!

And there are more spring themed mice to see today from the following designers.

Wonderful Winter Snowflakes and Friends

winter-friends-title

Today we are letting you in on a little-known secret about our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets. Look for an orange triangle in the upper right corner of the packaging and you will find a free template inside! Yep, the template complements the stamp set amazingly and our Winter Friends are complete with a snowflake stencil.

Here are two projects shared earlier this week that took advantage of the template and created a great backdrop for the Winter Friend characters.

There are so many great snowflakes in the template you may think we have it covered, but there is a flurry of options on our website in our Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s Metal Stencils that are terrific for all your winter projects! Be sure to visit our website to see projects using them, there is a project waiting for you to try!

This penguin is donning a top hat for the holidays, a simple gesture for the splendor of the season as we end our week with Winter Friends.

Fall For A Mousey Adventure!

Spend a day with these mice and they’ll give you an adventure. Don’t you love the idea of a leaf kite on a windy fall day? Monica, Amanda and friends are enjoying the sunshine with a day of kite flying just like Kristine’s card in beautiful fall colors.

These mice have come up with many other fun activities including leaves and here are a few from past releases.

All that fun with leaves can make a mouse, and us, hungry so what else is there to do but have a piece of pie! Better hurry though or Muzzy and Mudpie will eat your slice! Isn’t this a cute stamp perfect for any pie any time, but we kind of like it for a Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.

Kristine Reynolds created this darling card in fall colors with a super sweet bow and those mice are really enjoying every bite!
