A “Mice” Hello!

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! It’s a double-whammy kind of day today since I am also up on the Designer Nook’s newsletter series with a special project. If you are not aware, the Designer Nook newsletter is a free email subscription directly delivered to your inbox every Tuesday. Each design team member will have step-by-step instructions on how we created our project. If you haven’t subscribed to that yet, head on over to the Newton’s Nook website and click on the E-Newsletter sign up.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Garden Mice stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Essential Alphabet Die Set, Floral Lace Stencil and Sea Borders Die Set.

To begin, I inked up an A-2 size panel of Neenah solar white card stock with the Floral Lace Stencil and some distress oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves. Blending these four colors together will give you the complete rainbow!

Next, I stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored the image in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image. I die-cut the word “HELLO” using the Essential Alphabet Die Set with some black card stock, and also used the Sea Borders Die Set to cut two border panels.

Now that I have everything prepared, I am ready to assemble the card. First, I adhered the ink-blended panel on some A-2 size notecard. I foam-mounted the wavy borders for added dimension. I adhered the word “HELLO” on the card with liquid glue.

I finished my design by foam-mounting the image onto the card for added dimension. Here’s another look:

I love creating some just-because cards to mail to friends, don’t you?! I really love how this card turned out and I hope you like it too. The supplies are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
