Sending Mice Wishes!

For the next two weeks the Stampendous Design Team is sharing the sweet designs from House Mouse and Friends. These great designs are perfect for so many different occasions and pair perfectly with a background created from stencils! That was part of our challenge, to pair a House Mouse design with one of our stencil designs.

This hop is based on the House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. So for you to be entered to win you must play in the challenge. No commenting is considered an entry to win prizes. 

Three entries from the House-Mouse and Friends Linky gallery, chosen at random, will win 1-House-Mouse Designs® Stampendous Cling Rubber Stamp, 1 – Large Dreamweaver Stencils Background Stencil, and 1 – Jar of Embossing Paste. This contest is open to everyone!!

Step 2:  Place the Splats stencil on the big platform of the die cut machine, spritz a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock with a fine mist of water and lay the paper on the stencil, place the rubber embossing mat on the paper, then 2 new cutting plates and run the stack through the machine
Step 3: Keep the stencil over the embossed image and use a 1/2" stencil brush to the brown ink over the whole design, use a 1/4" brush to add a little black 
Step 4:  Remove the stencil and use a 1/2" brush to add some beige and yellow ink in the background, round the corners and add more brown around the edges
Step 5:  Stamp the saying on the smaller white die cut frame by first inking the "Sending" and stamping that, clean the stamp, ink the "Mice Wishes" and stamp below the "Sending", mat on the matching brown die cut frame
Step 6: Stamp the mouse image on a 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece of white, and color with Copic markers, round the corners, run black around the edge
Step 7:  Cut a  2 3/4" x 3 1/2" piece of brown cardstock and round the corners, adhere the mouse image to the mat
Step 8: Adhere the Splat background to the card front, then the mouse image at an angle
Step 9: Use foam tape to attach the saying
