Hello there and welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by today to help celebrate Simon Says Stamp From The Vault Blog Hop. Simon and Lawn Fawn are bringing back with From the Vault: Merry Christmouse stamps and dies. These were extremely popular their first time around (during STAMPtember 2015) and I am very happy to see these products back in stock. I personally missed this stamp set last year so I was very eager to play this time!

CARDS DETAILS

I decided to make a few simple and silly cards to mail to my friends who have a nice sense of humor. I started by stamping images from the Merry Christmouse stamp set in Simon’s Intense Black Ink onto white paper. I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner as I wanted to double stamp them and have perfect black outlines.

I used a few colors of Copic markers are quickly colored these. The colors I used are:

After cutting my images out using coordinating dies I started working on my background. I used my regular size MISTI, Sea Glass cardstock panel and Diagonal Stripe 6×6 cling background stamp and heat embossed beautiful white stripes.

For my Naughty or Mice card I heat embossed sentiment in Simon’s Antique Gold embossing powder onto vellum, wrapped vellum around the panel and adhered it onto an A2 top folding card base. I also foam mounted my images and added some red and white bakers twine to finish the card.

For my Merry Christmouse card I cut a banner out of Schoolhouse Red cardstock, foam mounted it onto the heat embossed panel (I already had it adhered onto a card base) and foam mounted my images on top. I also stamped “Have A” in Lipstick Red ink onto a strip of cardstock and foam mounted over the sentiment. To hang the stockings I adhered little pieces of red and white twine.

Lastly, I added a generous amount of Star Dust glitter glue from Ranger and some clear Wink Of Stella glitter pen.

    1. I can see why you missed these little mice. So cute. I’m honestly drawn to pretty stamp sets but when I see a cute/funny set hat isn’t too over the top they have to go in the basket. I find the true comedic stamp sets have limited use.
