House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge has a fun "Spring Is In The Air" Challenge going, and I thought,
"What better time to use a sweet image from long ago"
(in a land far, far away - like my closet).
Oh Boy! I have BLUNDERS to share! (Can you tell I enjoy sharing my boo-boos and blunders?) giggle.
Having dropped this stamp a good 6 or 7 times trying to get a print, I finally succeeded with these 2 images. You can see some of the boo-boos because I dropped it after stamping the image. I decided, "Oh well, it is hand-made with love" (more giggles)
The HM image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and chalk pastels, with a little distressing from Ranger inks.
I selected Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty-Five (for frame) very carefully because of the wonderful details when embossing the die cut. Then, with my fumble fingers, I meticulously cut very thin strips of black mounting adhesive to pop up the frame. Upon adhering the frame to the base, I realized that I had adhered the mounting tape on the pretty side of the frame instead of the back side! (wry grin). And so, my beautiful frame is shown wrong side out!
Other than that,
it is a sweet card
SNS's Americana Embossing Powder with Glitter was used on the blue leaves.
Those tiny white flowers are the "cut outs" from a die cut used on another project. They are from the Die-Namites Spring Egg Scene.
Here is a flat card (for mailing) using the same techniques (but the stamp was not dropped LOL)
Purple (eggplant) cardstock was used on the frame instead of the blue in the first card.
Clear Embossing Powder was used on the glass portion of the flat card to make the glass shiny - it makes the little House Mousie colors more deeply shown than in the top card. (see the two cards side-by-side at the top)
Thanks for sharing my fun cards!
