House Mouse And Friends March Challenge


Stamping Scrapping Design Team is having a Friendly Design Team challenge going on right now!  There is some AMAZING talent in the projects the DT members from Stamping Scrapping have put together!  SERIOUSLY amazing!!!

Please stop on by Stamping Scrapping Design Team to vote for your favorite projects in THREE categories!  They are:

    • Most Creative
    • Best Card
    • Best Thinking Outside The Box

I made my project as my “inspiration” project over at House Mouse And Friends. The challenge is to “Do Anything” using a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image. I’ve created an easel card with pink, lace and frills and by the tail showing in the photo above, I’m sure you can see that I used a House Mouse stamp.   I can relate to how full this mouse is!  I love strawberries too!!!  :o)


For this project, I used:

  • Image – Sleeping with Strawberries
  • Patterned Paper – DCWV
  • Flowers – Primas
  • Skittles
  • Ribbon
  • Copics – R32, E13, E15, E17, E00, E02, YG17, C3, C5, R29, R35, R37
  • At You Spica – Pitch Black
  • Martha Stewart Lattice Punch
  • ABS and Air Compressor

I colored the image with my Copic markers, used the airbrush to get a soft effect on the card base and used the Spica pen to color in the black seeds on the strawberries. I added two layers of lace with the Martha Stewart Lattice Punch, a layer of shimmery ribbon, some Prima Flowers and Skittles to finish it off.

Here is what the easel card looks like opened up.


If you’d like to join in on the challenge, make sure you link your project in THIS post in Mr. Linky so your name is in the drawing to win a “Flower Bed” stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today!
