Fun with Non Colored Stamped Image

Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers

Having fun with a House-Mouse Designs Stamp that I have had for years. This one is called 'O Lucky Day' with Mudpie the mouse. I have a special love for them since they were the first stamp I bought and enticed me to color and craft cards. Right makes me smile and happy to see I have taken my crafting and love of making cards to another level with the blessing of God. What tickled my creativity for this card is a Theme challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends-No coloring image. Immediately I was tickled to join in with the thought I don't even have to color a stamped image to feature it on a card. For this particular card design I decided to use some fun with 3D Paper Piecing. It takes a little more time especially since I was going to need to fuzzy cut some of the flowers into individual pieces. I actually find it therapeutic for me as I put on some soothing and encouraging Praise and Worship music on as I do my fuzzy cutting. After I fuzzy cut needed pieces I also use my embossing tool to give them dimension.

 I hope you try this 3D paper piecing style. I was introduced to it a couple years ago by Blog Hopping where I found this wonderful, amazing card maker Mariska van der Veer. Here Blog is called Sending You a Little Smile. I encourage you to visit her because her works are jaw-dropping gorgeous with all her intricate details. Mariska has a Tutorial tab on top of her blog that gives you instructions on how she does her 3D Paper Piecing. She has several but the one I used is on her Whiffs of Joy line and/or Here.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges where I am also a Follower.

I've so rarely seen an uncoloured House Mouse image on a card -- and it looks great! The 3D blossoms add so much, too. Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Fabulous use of this color combo Yellow/Gray/White and Black. One of my favs right now. Adorable way to showcase this uncolored House-Mouse image with that dimension. I love it! Thanks for joining us this week at HMFMC for my "NO-Coloring" challenge. Good Luck to you and hope you'll come join us again next week for a brand new challenge. :)
