Getting Into Mousey Mischief

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.


HMR32 Watermelon Mice Stamp

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.

This Gruffies bear, Pebble could be practicing or playing a flawless recital piece. In either case, it’s taking all concentration to complete it!

This precious card by Debi Hammons  is tickling the ivories with soft colored pencils and the music score stamped as pattern paper adds a great finishing touch for this piano player project.

Product Theme for Making Art

This has been a great week of making art, seeing how the design team from Spectrum Noir and our own talented team have created such a great variety of projects. Did you notice our theme week House-Mouse Designs® appear here and there? The gallery for this theme has grown and included here on this post, but first let’s take a look at the stamps that were the inspiration for this theme week.

Isn’t the image of this stamp the truth! Once we start stamping it’s likely to turn into a repeatable moment! House-Mouse Monica has turned into an avid stamper with this paw print stamp.

Making Prints

I always thought there was a special touch to flowers that made them so beautiful and now I’m thinking it’s all because Maxwell has a paintbrush and paint well.

Painted Pansies

Oh dear, a painting mishap between a paintbrush and tail! This adorable stamp is perfect to send an encouraging message, apology or to scrapbook those messy painting sessions of your children.

Painting Pals

Now for the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful inspiring weekend!

Birdie Love, Be Mine

A very sweet friendship is afoot with Amanda Mouse and her springtime friend. It’s one more step towards spring when creatures are out to play like the two in this Birdie Kiss stamp. I think I’ll just say ADORABLE and leave it at that.

Birdie Kiss Stamp

It’s so great to see these stamp come to life with the touch of color and here Jennie Lin Black’s card has some fabulous color and flare.
