House Mouse #247 Nurse Mouse







** NEW HMFMC CHALLENGE, #247
Hosted by Mousey Teamie, Christine and the theme is...

***Anything BUT a Card*** 

You also have the alternate option of entering the challenge with an "ANYTHING GOES" project too!  

House-Mouse Designs®






I used a cute new stamp named Nurse Mouse HMCP62. Our challenge for #247 is Anything but a card-so I made this cute little 'pill' container and added a hidden message that can be pulled out with a red cross tab. 

The box is named Halloween candy card and can be found in the Silhouette Store.

I added a little message inside the flip top. I also added a little print and cut My Scrap Chick thermometer from the Medical Bears file.

Now I am not a big one for cough drops and such, so you can see here that my theory is that Hot Tamale candy will cure almost anything LOL!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Wonder Woman (Wet & Wild)








                         Penny Black  Saturday Challenge



August Challenge


Shaped cards(no square or rectangles)







the inside sentiment


I have been wanting to make this card since I went to the movies and watched Wonder Woman! What a fun fun movie. I thought this little Penny Black Wonder Girlie from the Transparent set Wet and Wild was a perfect fit!

The card base was cut with my Silhouette using a file named Wonder Woman (imagine that :))!

The cardstock is from Michaels-with the blue and gold showing off the glittery side of Ms.WGirlie.

Christmas in July-My Scrap Chick The Nutcracker






    My Scrap Chick      








I made these cards for my daughter and her family...so read on for the rest of the story. 

My oldest grandson Cole has been enamored by Nutcrackers since he was just little...(maybe 2 or 3ish) and he is almost 10 now! Where has the time gone?

When we would go to the stores in December we always had to scope out the 5 foot tall Nutcracker at JC Penny's holiday section. He would stand there with the Nutcracker towering over him for the longest time checking it all out. Oh such a fond memory.  When he was little he had a little boy pronunciation for  Nutcracker-  (nutcrachkkkkker)-needless to say, the pronunciation has stuck to this day.

So The Nutcracker will be Cole's Christmas card, Mom and Dad will get the tree and brother Lukey had to get a card equally cool, so he gets the Mouse King!

This is a full set the includes the Nutcracker Prince, Mouse King, Christmas tree, Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy. What a deal!

 I made them in to cards by grouping the elements of each file together and tracing.  I cut the inside white insert from this first trace. I then did a .50 offset and cut 2 in craft paper.  I did cut a portion off the top of the white insert to allow the two craft pieces to be stuck together (and get rid of bulk as well) with red tape-you need something strong to hold them together. I added a little score line to the back craft piece so I could bend it to "hinge" and open easily. 




The Nutcracker Prince

Here you can catch a glimpse of  how each file is created into a card. I wish you could see the shiny gold and silver papers I used on these cards...
                                                             



This Mouse King just makes me smile!



Lovin' this fun 'curly' Christmas tree!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Flowers In the Garden and Special Thoughts






                         Penny Black  Saturday Challenge



July Challenge

Flowers



Oh my...can you spot the real ant in this picture...good grief! Reminds me of my beginning days of stamping (back in 2000) when we all had ant stamps and we used to stamp an ant over our boo boos.  A little touch of love LOL!


Hello there Penny Black fans!

 I told you I just had to make another insta-cube pop up box card-so here it is. These can be so addictive and so fun to pop out of their sleeve cover. A fun little surprise that sort of startles you when you pull it out!  I used several Penny Black stamp sets for this pop up card-the sentiment is from the set Special Thoughts and the images are from In The Garden.  As you can see, the little kitty left his tracks all around the cube.

Father's Day Projects







Just popping in to show you a couple Father's Day projects I made this year.  Not much crafting time these days, but the Dad's look forward to their specially made projects so I can not disappoint!





This is a big box-7.25 x 3 finished size and holds a lot of Dad's favorite candy! The lid pulls off to allow you to fill it with all the favorite goodies that Dad likes.  I really think this is a project that could be resized smaller and come out just as cute.




3D Fishing Tackle Box designed by Lori Whitlock








 I adore how this pops in to a cube when you pull it out of the sleeve!!! I can't wait to make another one of these-in fact I have one in process already.
 Note: I did add extra layers to all the matting  pieces, but that's just my thing :).

Hope you enjoyed my projects today!

Baby Belly Cards -My Scrap Chick



 My Scrap Chick          













Aren't these babies the cutest design??? 
These files are from My Scrap Chick(see link above)


I always seem to need new baby cards and these cards are definitely one of my all time favorites. 

I used some of my SU! blush cardstock stash and chalked the edges with pink and brown for the skin and pink/blue on the diapers. I also added a little pink gingham ribbon on my sweet little girl!

Ouchie-My Scrap Chick


                           My Scrap Chick



Sometimes you find just the right card for the right reason at the right time...

Heel Soon-Foot Shaped Card

My coworker had foot surgery and boy oh boy-this cut file from My Scrap Chick fits the bill perfectly! Don't you just love it when that happens? 

It was very simple to assemble...but I did find myself saying out loud..."this little piggy went to market, and this little piggy..." when gluing on all the little toesies! 

Just a little chalking and printing the sentiment and it was done.  I did make an inside piece to write a message on, but totally unnecessary!

I hope this cheers up her day-it did mine :)!
