Miss Mousie

New stamps in at Paper Garden Projects include the cutest little mice called Cute Companions and designed by Jayne Nestorenko. This is just one set and she has several…some of which are Christmas and Winter designs. I received my order yesterday and I have Celebration Parade  and Wishing Line, both of which have cute little backgrounds and sentiments; they were too cute not to get. And in my order Cathy had packed a couple of paper samples and so I put them together to make….
a card with a gift tag.
The pansy is shaped and all was colored with Distress inks.
For those who need to know certain details the background (or skyline) was stamped on the ‘sky’, white cardstock, then painted, and the bottom of the skyline was stamped and trimmed on the ‘grass’. Also stamped partial image of Miss Mousie on the grass then placed the image (colored on white cardstock - Neenah) over that so the the whiskers and pebbles lined up with the rest.
The card base was cut after placing the basic pieces together (sky, skline and grass – 5 1/2 inches wide the cut at 3 inches wide for main image). Card base measures 3 w. x 8 t. then the edge was punched and the top placed on. Paper is from the Hearts Bloom Paper Kit at Paper Garden Projects.

Oh My! This is so cute - great way to use those papers. Love the lace at the bottom too.
