A little birdie and a Gorjuss Girl! :)

Yes, it’s another from my secret stash of Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls!   I truly love these images!   I also used some paper from my new-favorite company, Graphic 45 ~ their colors and patterns are so bright and vibrant ~ I’ve been collecting them wherever I can find them!   I do like the combination of blue and yellow too!

I’ve added some metal brads from Spare Parts and the square shapes behind the main image are cut with my Spellbinders Nestabilities dies.  The yellow lace is from Making Memories and the blue ribbon is from my stash ~ the dots were originally white, until I colored them yellow with my Copic marker!  🙂    The sentiment is computer generated.

House Mouse Challenge No. 44 ~ Paper Tole

6 249

Weeeeeee  …    Happy House Mouse Monday!!

Well,  this little mouse sure looks like she’s having fun!   This is Monica and the Stampendous stamp called Balloon Ride.  

Our challenge this week is to use the technique called Paper Tole.   If any of you are wondering… hmmmm, what’s Paper Tole??   I actually have a tutorial that I put together quite awhile ago, showing my version of Paper Tole, found here.   There are lots of different versions, this is just one that I use quite often.

I love the DP used on this card, it’s from Michael’s by ProvoCraft called Illuminations.   The balloon has been layered….several times – FOUR to be exact!!   The top layer was finished using my paper tole method. 



Monica seems to be enjoying her balloon ride!

I hope you can join us….But don’t forget to check out all the paper tole projects by the always amazing House Mouse Design Team.
