It’s a great day in the snow with our furry friends and it is even better for us because we stay dry and warm inside! This fun sledding card does well as a sweet encouragement card for family or friend just like this card by Janelle Stollfus.

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.

CRZINSERTMG
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.

Now for the gallery!


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful inspiring weekend!

Making Art with Friends

You might have noticed we are making art with House-Mouse Designs and our friends at Spectrum Noir this week. Still we are gathering up our artsy mice and sharing them here in a neat little gallery. You can click on any caption to take you either the designer’s blog or a project page on our website for supplies and instructions to create one like it.

 

Come back tomorrow with more hopping with Spectrum Noir!

Birthday Buddies

Where’s our weekly theme? Well while we have two fabulous blog hop events happening this week we’ve added the weekly theme into the mix. You’ll see our designers posts with all the great House-Mouse Design stamps that are Birthday Buddies to the core. Here are today’s posts from the team as well as a project page from our website.

See you back here soon for another day of hops!

 

Ingenuity Comes in All Sizes

Being vertically challenged is a moment by moment feat, these mice find ways around those obstacles by involving those friends. Today we have some mice that are not only using their ingenuity they are plotting a revenge.

Amy Hurley-Purdie designed the most delightful version of this stamp, we’re sharing it with her permission because it’s so sweet! Thank you Amy, we’ll send you to her blog when she posts it so you can let her know how much you love it, too! For now you can click on the caption to see how she made this card.

Whispers of Love

Sharing the quiet moments of love couldn’t be more easy than with these two amazing House-Mouse Designs® images about small whispers of love. These tiny gestures of fondness are so cute and appropriate for our Be Mine theme week, that I can’t wait to share them.

Here’s the House-Mouse Designs® Be Mine stamp illustrated by Ellen Jareckie. Now I can see this image being used for anniversary, weddings, and scrapbook pages.

Tails Entwined stamp, also from House-Mouse Designs illustrator Ellen Jareckie, is squealing cute with spring. It’s the perfect little card for a new or old romance card.
