House Mouse Cards

I made a few cards with House Mouse Stamps. . .the House Mouse designs are one of my favorite stamps. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this stamp series, the quality of the stamped images are one of the most detailed and excellent quality image that I've found so far.

It's not just a simple doodle stamp but it is a work of art. As I've said before in other posts, because of the detailed art work, coloring these little critters can be time consuming but so worth the time when you see the quality of the finished product.

Card detail:

Stamp: Stampabilities Lavender Dreams, Anna Griffith sentiment stamp
Paper: Serendipity Caramel, Stampin Up Pretty in Pink, White Glossy Cardstock, Provocraft Scrapbook Paper
Ink: Stazon jet black, Stampin Up Pastels
Accessories: Stampin Up 1 inch circle punch, Silver brad, Making Memories designer ribbon, Stickles

This next card I enhanced the flowers with Stampin Up Crystal effects to give it a 3D shiny appearance. You can't see it in the picture but it really enhances the appearance of the flowers. I don't apply the Crystal Effect on the whole flowers, just the outline. . .it also gives the flowers a unique texture. You should give it a try sometime. I used crystal effects on my card on the previous post as well. You can see the effect better on that card.
