And the mouse gets the cheese…

This was for a 3-d Swap I was in while at leadership.  Do you like???

This is a modified triangle box.  A tutorial can be found HERE.  I altered the measurements to make it a little more mass production friendly.

My specs are 4×8, (maximizing a 12×12 sheet of so saffron card stock)  score it at 4″, then  following the guidelines in the tutorial.  I just cut triangle to fit inside and glued them in place with some snail.  


Stamps:  Happy Heart Day

Paper:  So saffron, apricot appeal, basic black

Ink:  Black

Accessories:  3 flower punch,  black gingham ribbon, Markers for coloring, black brad, tag corner punch, Circle punches for the cheese = 1″, 3/4″, 1/4″ and 1/8″ circle

A Valentine Production house

I really was a Valentine production house.   25 for Each of my 3 Children.  Stamped, Assembled and ready to color.  Both my boys were giving out these various Blue ones.  (They stamped the inside with a sentiment)  This is a shot of a few of my oldest son’s cards.  He’s in 4th grade and loved these.  My other son is in 2nd grade and had the same ones.  They choose to make the mouse white like Stuart Little.  

My Daughter’s were very similar to these but she swooped them off to school before I could snap a picture.  they had images from last year’s sale-a-bration set Very Punny.  All were 3×3 cards with no envelopes.  I used up some of my non-stampin up paper for these, since I know where they were headed.  LOL.  

Its been a treat factory Here

I made 50 of these.  25 in pink and 25 in red.  I have been busy.  I was coloring these at stoplights in the car to get them done. LOL

Here is a close up of one of the cards in my Be My Valentine Class. This set can be used so much more than Valentines Day. I am going to work on that this week. So stay tuned for some cute cards!


Stamps: Happy Heart Day, All Holidays

Paper: Regal rose, soft sky, basic black

ink: black, soft sky

accessories: water brush for coloring the elephant soft sky, 1 inch circle punch, markers in celery & regal rose, wide grosgrain ribbon in rose. I have since added glitter to the flower and to the heart on the elephants nose.

A Mouse is in my House!

I just love this little guy and this stamp set. This was a card that my club members received this month. I prepared it as a kit and included it with their orders. I left the coloring off the card just in case they wanted to switch the colors or change it around. I hope they had fun with it. Almost everyone has a their club orders now …except Becci and Karen- sorry to spoil your surprise! This layout is great- and goes with many many cards and stamps sets.

Stamps: Happy Heart Day
ink: black:
paper: real red, bashful blue, black and whisper white
