One of the new House Mouse stamps

These new House Mouse stamps are so cute for spring card making, I love tulips, after snow drops and daffodils have finished, they are always a great sign that spring and better weather is on its way.

It's just one stamp of the many new additions to our website. The card inspiration is from the Stampendous Design Team,

There are card ideas for every new stamp from the team on our website HERE.  Click on the stamp images to get more information about sizes etc, then click on the card/project images for a larger view of them.

Little Curly Owl... 2 Ways

I have quite a lot of favourite stamps in the latest Woodware Craft Collection release and this is one of them, the Curly Owl, designed by Francoise Read.

I paper pieced the owl with papers I had made with the Creative Palette, I took the prints from the plate with copier paper, copier paper is ideal to use when you want to make papers for this technique.

I stamped the owl 3 times onto different papers I had pulled from the plate, cut them out and pieced them together onto another stamped image on white card.

I coloured the heart with a red Tombow pen.

The alphabet background paper is from the Antique Paper Pad, this pad is great value at only £1.99 for 30 sheets of 6" x 6" assorted papers that mix and match!

The burlap trim is a small frayed piece cut from a square of jute.  The packs of jute are brilliant, there are eight 6" x 6" pieces in each pack and as you tend to cut them down, they do go a long way.  They also add a great texture to cards. I used one of the new Steampunk Owl Brass Charms attached with natural hemp cord.  Again, this cord goes a long way, I've had mine for a long while and love the fact that there is a colour choice in the pack.

The twig is courtesy of a find by our dog, cut and mounted as an embellishment with silicone glue.

I also added glossy accents to the eyes

The card below was made by Francoise Read, I love her doodling and shading with the Little Curly Owl stamp!  Francoise has used a background paper from the Vintage 2 paper pad

The same Curly Owl stamp used 2 ways!

Woodware Craft Collection - new - Noel Reindeer

I used another piece of the background paper that I made with the Stampendous Creative Palette and used with the Curly Christmas stamp I posted yesterday.  The pattern shows more on the reindeer that I paper pieced with Francoise Read's new Noel Reindeer stamp.

The Happy Christmas greeting is included with the Noel Reindeer stamp and polka dot paper from one of the new paper pads.  The star button adds an embellishment along with some crystal self adhesive gems.

Now, if you think we are starting Christmas early, one of the new stamps is for Easter!  You can't get much more ahead in your card making than this!  

I used another piece of the same background paper I made with the Creative Palette and stamped the bunny, the papers you make certainly go a long way for paper piecing.  

The swirly background paper (that matches the bunny in real life) is from the new paper pack Perfect Prints Stack Packs - Fresh - MSP228R - 15 x 15cm - 30 Assorted SheetsAt £1.99 per pack they are really good value! 

If you think that bunny looks a bit wonky, he is, I used a wobble action fixing on the back of the panel so it wobbles, a great idea for any children cards, they will love it. Woodware - Action Wobble (12) - AW01

Francoise has also designed some lovely cute images for young children that I'll show another time.

Thanks for visiting, and have a great Sunday!
