Jelly Bean Thief and Flowering Fields

Back again with two more cards from yesterday!


The first one is an Easter card I made for a swap using the House Mouse Pastels challenge and the sketch at Mojo Monday.


2016 Card 35 - House Mouse Jelly Bean Thief


I used House Mouse Jelly Bean Thief and colored him with copics. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set. Paper is from Doodlebug’s Hello Spring paper pad. Sketch is linked at the bottom of the post.


My 2nd card is for the sketch at Stamp, Paper, Ink Challenge and the Thank You challenge at Global Design Project.


2016 Card 36 - Stampin Up Flowering Fields


I used the Flowering Fields Sale-a-bration set from Stampin Up and Pretty Petals dsp.  The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper with Old Olive ink and watercolored with Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Minta Macaron and Old Olive inks. The thanks is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.

Kicking off #CFMSS2015!

Hello and Happy June!!


I am kicking off my Craft From My Stash Summer 2015 with my first entry into #thedailymarker30day2 coloring challenge (linking up on Instagram) and I used the new sketch at The Challenge. (sketch near the end of the post – I should note that I turned the sketch to accommodate my image!) I am also entering this card into the “In the Kitchen” challenge at House Mouse & Friends, dug out this oldie but goodie from one of my wood mount stamp bins.


I used my new Zig Clean Color real brush pens for the first time to color my image. I am in.love.with.them! They are fabulous. It is really easy to control how much or how little color you use depending on how you use them. I will explain a bit under the picture.


2015 Card 38 - HM Poppin Good Birthday


Some parts of the image were colored with the pens and then I blended it using a waterbrush. To get the different color between the popcorn and the candles, I colored the candles full strength and added Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle. For the popcorn, the kernels were colored full strength and then I went over it with the waterbrush. Then I colored the yellow on a scrap piece of cardstock and lifted the color with the waterbrush to color in the pieces of popcorn.  I think the beauty of these pens is the ability to color without having the full selection.  I am really happy I took the plunge on this new trend. I have several other coloring options in my room that were “must haves” that either were used and not liked or have not bothered to use them yet.  This was one of the good purchases 🙂


Colors used:

Cake: #222 Pink Flamingo

Candles: #036 Light Blue

Ground/Mouse ears: #028 Pale Pink

Popcorn/Flames: #050 Yellow

Cake plate/Spoon: #091 Light Gray

Mouse on the left: 071 – Flesh Color & #064 Oatmeal

Birthday Cupcake

Good morning!


I ended up creating a 2nd card last night. This one is for the House Mouse Paper Piecing challenge (HMFMC178) and the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.


2014 Card 132 - House Mouse Birthday Cupcake


This stamp was laying on top of my “A & B” box of stamps and good for paper piecing. I used Authentique’s Wishes paper pad on the candles and the cupcake wrapper.  I rotated the sketch to fit my image better.  I think overall it turned out pretty cute!


Here is the sketch~
