This Cute Mouse Always Brings A Smile

Hi there,

What fun Rosali of I Love Stamping blog (IG: @ilovestamping) is bringing us today with this adorable little mouse from the My Favorite Things Always Brings A Smile stamp and die set. Here he is pushing a cart of strawberries.


Rosali has created this uber-cute card by starting with a white card panel made from Bristol paper. Bristol paper is great for ink blending but it also works great with the Winsor Newton watercolor markers. So, with that in mind, the mouse and cart were stamped onto the panel using Versafine Black Onyx ink. Then, these elements were colored using the Winsor Newton watercolor markers. The sky was colored too with the markers but a little water was added to blend it out on the edges (another fabulous reason to use Bristol paper – it tolerates small amounts of water without warping or pilling).

After all the coloring was done, the sentiment “For You” from the Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte stamp set was added to the panel with the same Versafine black ink.

The panel was then adhered to a red card base and a grassy strip was added by cutting a piece of green cardstock using the Grassy Fields dies and was placed below the cart.

And there you have it, a fast card to make that’s oozing with charm!
