I Pick You

Hi Creative Friends,

I had so much fun with today’s project. First of all, I finally used the MFT Harvest Mouse stamp and die set. I have been in love with this set since it was first released. These adorable little mice are in the cutest poses. The mouse with the bushel basket is so awesome, I decided on him for my subject.

Then, to color him, I chose Derwent Inktense colored pencils on a colored background. I was inspired by Jennifer Rustioni who is an amazing talent! She often uses colored pencil on a colored background and I just love the look!

One more thing before we jump into the card design, we are excited to announce a sale on all My Favorite Things stamps, dies, or stencils in our shop. More info is at the bottom of this post but just so you know the discount code is: 15MFT822.

A Trio of Bouquets

Hi Creative Friends,

A few weeks ago I shared a sweet bouquet card using the Simply Graphic Bouquets stamp set. Now I am sharing the two others I made at the same time.
