Emergency Crafter DT card - Saturday 10th November

Hello Friends,

After the LOTV baby card yesterday, I am returning to my other favourite stamp company,  House Mouse!

Today's card is my Design Team card for the new Emergency Crafters challenge, the theme of which is  'Get Well Soon'

I chose to use this cute House Mouse and Friends stamp, which I've coloured with Promarkers and cut out using Grand Labels 23; I also cut  the next side up on double-sided card to mount it and use as the frame for my easel.

The edges are shaded with Tattered Rose distress ink and framed with flowers from my stash box. For the base, I stamped the sentiment  with Butterscotch Adirondack ink and then heat embossed using a translucent embossing powder. To make the the 'stopper' I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Four Small and repeated in the larger size using the same card as for the frame. Then I simply added some ribbon and a button from stash.

'Hop' over to Emergency Crafters via the link above, this time our sponsor is The Glittermonster, with a super papercraft goody bag from Trimcraft.

Hope this cheers you up if you're feeling poorly! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, 

Crafty Love, Carole X

  5. Hi Carole, nothing like House Mouse to cheer someone up or in my case to cheer up a very dull and miserable day (weather-wise). Your card, as ever, is beautiful, love the warm colours and gorgeous image. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  7. Hi Carole,
    what a fab get well card. This would cheer anyone up. Such a cutie image and very lovely design. I really like the house mouse, but I still don't own any, something else always comes up that I need to buy before I get the chance.
    Maybe one day hey!
    Have a wonderful crafty afternoon.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Sorry but I just giggled out loud when I saw this image Carole - they always make me laugh as I have said before. I think it is a perfect GW card and would cheer anyone up soooo much. I think Hm stamps are amazing and these colours are so different.
