House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #269 ~~ Anything Goes option Back to School

Here in Canada school isn't out for the summer yet but there is an option to make a back to school project and have it ready, or just go with the Anything Goes as long as it has a house mouse, happy hopper or a gruffie on it. This is my last challenge as guest designer at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge I guess all good things have to come to an end. I decided my image really needed to be a square card (been into squares lately)  I only have one stamp that can pass for "back to school" so I went with it.


First thing I thought was primary colours red, blue and yellow and I love my stitched square dies and the fancy square that goes with them. Of course I had to do a tiny bit of fussy cutting to make the image fit in the square. The embossing folder is sequins, I love the way they are random.


Monica is Taking Notes but if you look closely Monica is writing out lines. How would you have had to finish the line I Will Not..........


No appropriate sentiment to put in the inside but I used one of the 7 POP stamps I bought at the Butterfly Moon  they are so adorable, some are a miniature of larger stamps and will be awesome to use on envelopes and on the inside. You are going to see lots of these adorable little critters. (they are clear stamps they have critters & sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you keep checking to see what I have been up to. It has been a fantastic 3 months and now I can go back to just playing the challenges.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas ~~ with the Jingle Belles

I love the "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" prompt at the Jingle Belles Rock and I have a card made already!!! It's self explanatory ~~ make a white on white card and I did.


A white square base, all the rest is done with white shimmer cardstock.  Poinsettias are a Boss-Kut die, the centers are from Lana, Peace is cut three times and layered and is an Impression Obsession die.  The postage stamp square is a generic die and the white lace is from Crafts (dollarama)


Close up of Peace and those centers really sparkle but sadly don't show up in the picture.


Finished inside with a Stampendous sentiment.

Challenge #359 at Shopping Our Stash ~~ She's a Crafting Machine!!!

Mimi want's us to be Crafting Machines for challenge #359 at Shopping Our Stash, so get out those die cutting machines and dies, sewing machines, zyron perhaps your embossing machine to make a project for the challenge. This was an easy challenge, the hardest part was figuring  out what I was using. I'm at the cottage and my sewing machine is a very small one, just does one stitch and I really need practice with it, so I used my big shot and a couple of dies.


I used Elizabeth Craft Designs scalloped frame, Elizabeth Craft Design Stitched ovals and a generic butterfly die. Pearls from my stash I added to the butterflies and flowers.


Close up of the butterflies and other die cuts. I did leave the inside blank as I need a few "can be used for any occasion" cards on hand and I think this fits the bill.

If you haven't been to the Main Blog head over and check out what the rest of the design team have used for their crafting machines. Everything I used I've had for at least a year even the cardstock.

thanks for visiting and I'm looking forward to commenting on your projects for our challenge.

The stamp I used is from House Mouse Designs, coloured with alcohol markers and the bells were sparkled up with a wink of stella.

Jingle All The Way!!!

Jingle Belles Rock the Christmas Bells!!! I'm so happy to be able to create a second card for the challenge. I decided the Fluffles stamped image really needed to be "square". Fluffles is one of the older stamps I have and sadly they are discontinued they were from Stampendous.


This is as CAS as you get from me!!! I now see how much "white" space there is in the background even though it's striped. 


Close up of my trio of bell ringers.


Finished inside with some left over patterned paper and a Impression Obsession sentiment.
