It’s easy to give a friend a little lift when they receive a card from you with a House-Mouse and Friends design on them. This week our little meeces will come out to play with their friends on design team projects for a great time of fun.
Maxwell and Amanda are helping out a friend in this entertaining stamp design and it just might be worth the boost for a taste of that prized garnish too.
Martini Mice are creating a splash on Monika Thomas color spot card. Isn’t that genius of Monika to color only the olive!
And these mice friends are sharing some fun projects today, too!
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.
If you hopped earlier this week you might have seen this darling colored sample from Rhea Weigand and below it’s linked up to a supply list with instructions.
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.
We just love this card from Lea Kimmel and it has a supply list and instructions on our website.
Our designers today have some love to share with their projects. Have fun!
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.
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.
Here’s a sample from me for the January catalog and it comes with instructions, so just click on the image or caption beneath it.
Are you ready for a big line up of designers today? We have delivered for a fun time hopping. Be sure to leave a little bit of comment love along the way so the designer’s know you stopped by.
It’s February, Stampendous fans, and we’ve got you covered with our love themed stamps! The Kisses Galore background stamp will set the stage for your greeting cards or scrapbooking events with your loved ones.
Stampendous has been so blessed to have internationally acclaimed Mixed Media Artist and Instructor Nathalie Kalbach designing stamps for our collection. She created three image groups last year that were hot, hot, hot! Now we’ve added three more. We caught up with Nathalie at CHA and convinced her to demo in the booth. Her fun and textured art journals aren’t really formal demo material, but we had a great time showing layer after layer of added yumminess as she just played around with paint and her new stamps! Enjoy!
It’s only day two of the hop and we’ve seen some amazing projects from both teams and there are even more to see today! We are having some fun along the hop that includes a chance to win a prize package that includes our Jumbo Cling Dear Santa Stamp Set plus Jumbo Stamp Handle and a set of Recycled Kraft cards and envelopes to create 50 – 5 x 7 greeting cards.
To be eligible to grab one of the three prize packages from our blog hop, comment each day on our blog and that of each designer in the list below. The winners will be chosen by random (random.org) and we’ll be looking for a way to notify the winners from their comment or profile information.

But now it’s time to check out the gorgeous artwork from today’s designers!
The adorable friends from House-Mouse Designs® have spent all week decorating the house and decking the halls! They’re ready for Santa to come down the chimney and bring them some treats. We’re sharing some great samples from our July Catalog this week made by our terrific Design Team. Maybe one of them will inspire you to get your holiday decorate on!! You can click on the pictures to see the projects on our website with supply list and instructions.
They’ve decorated their tree! Although it’s a wonder they have any ornaments left after Monica’s Balancing Act!
They’ve put the finishing touches on the Christmas Cookies, although knowing Amanda and Maxwell there might not be any left for Santa!
They’ve wrapped the gifts… uh… well… maybe Maxwell, Monica and Amanda are hoping for a ride in Santa’s Sleigh??
They’ve sung in the Christmas pageant, Mudpie and Monica were the angels!
Mudpie even put out the cookies for Santa! And a note… just to explain.
Finally the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Maxwell is taking no chances that Santa might miss his! He’s even got a peppermint stick for Old St. Nick. Well… what’s left of one anyway!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our take on Getting Ready for Christmas! We’ve sure had a blast sharing these terrific samples with you! And, of course, we want to close by saying, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
Like it or not, the holidays are fast approaching! When do you decorate for Christmas? (or whatever holiday you celebrate) Do you like to have all your decorations up when the family comes for Thanksgiving? Do you avoid the Black Friday crowds and stay home to deck the halls? Are you content with a wreath on the door and a Merry Christmas on your lips? Or do you make every room in your house a dazzling showplace to Christmas?
Our friends at House-Mouse Designs® go all out! They want to impress Santa so that he’ll leave them goodies galore! Our design team is swamped this week with the Tue-Wed-Thu blog hop with Spellbinders and the Fri-Sat-Sun blog hop with Tombow! (sooo much goodness for one week) We’re going to help them out in the afternoons by sharing some of the “holiday preparations” cards and projects they made for our catalog. If you click on the picture it will take you to the Supplies and Instructions on our website. We hope you find some inspiration for your own holiday cards (or decorations!) this year.
Stringing cranberries is a fun activity to do with kids. We always added popcorn, but I imagine that Muzzy ate all the popcorn (like we used to) before she got this far!
Come back and visit us tomorrow (after you finish your Spellbinders Hopping…oooh the prizes!!) and we’ll have more fun Christmas preparations for you!
