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.

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!

Contains Spring in Creative Ways!

Friday is here and we have a fun twist to the spring theme for this week. The stamp images in the spotlight today all have beautiful blossoms in creative containers!

Our Bicycle Basket stamp is full of blossoms and ready for a fresh delivery to your project and it also works great with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a beautiful spring or summer theme card. Watch this video for a quick way to make the basket of flowers pop.

A children’s wagon is full of pretty planted pots to stroll around the garden looking for the perfect place to set them.

It is time to start hearing cheerful birds outside your patio door and we have an adorable Watering Can stamp with a bird who has a song! It’s just the right size for a gift tag, ATC card and more!

It was great to spotlight our newest spring and garden products this week and you can see them on our website with the rest of our Flower Garden, Spring and Summer selection anytime you need inspiration or new ideas but for today we still have more to share from our design team!

More Lovely Lilacs

stampfocus_blog_lilacs

A new lilac image arrived in our House-Mouse stamps to add to the lovely lilacs theme of products. We adore this Lilac Aroma stamp as much as Monica does smelling the fragrance of these syringa flowers.

HMP59 House-Mouse® Lilac Aroma Stamp

And we know the lilac is Monica’s favorite flower because she was caught smelling the Scent of Lilac on another stamp and smelling flowers is any House-Mouse personal amusement in the garden. Stop by the House-Mouse stamp section of our website to see more!

Before we move on to inspiration from our design team today, here are more flowers we want you to see from the latest catalog. Cyclamen and Geraniums are beautiful and a joy to make into cards or adding to your garden journal.

And now here is the entire week of design team inspiration starting with today’s posts.
