It has been a coloring-palooza at my house this past week. Jennifer has been doing so many cool cards with her House Mouse stamps that it inspired me to dig into my stamps and do some of my own. This first one is one of my newer stamps and it is right up there with my favorites. Can't you just feel their sugar burnout? Oh, so cute! I put some stickles on the frosting to make it shimmer. I used crystal lacquer on the candles. The bg paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack and boy, is it glittery! I used a scrap of really sparkly pink to mat the image. Then I used my scalloped blade for my paper cutter to cut the small scallops on the green cardstock (Prism). I used my 1/8" red tape on the outside edges of the green cs and then sprinkled some fine glitter on it. Boy, oh boy, this card is girly! This next one is very quick and simple. I stamped the image onto smooth white cardstock with black onyx Versafine ink and colored with my prismas. If this cute little mouse showed up in my teacup, I don't think I'd mind. Simple ribbon embellishment with some Prima flowers and gems. Done. This last card is a Paula Best stamp that I bought up at the rubber stamp expo in Riverside last month. I love the funky style of Paula Best. This card was stamped on white cs with black Versafine ink and colored with Prismas. I colored in "February" and the "11" because that is the birthdate of my coworker. This stamp will be so fun to use for anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, etc. I'm so glad I got it.
