Fun Play with House-Mouse Critter

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited about sharing my finding of the Blog, House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. I love those precious critters. And what better way to challenge my stamping creativity by receiving and sharing inspiration with fellow fans, followers of the House-Mouse & Friends Blog Challenge and their Design Team. Perfect timing because I just bought a few of their stamps to add to my collection. This being one of them.

With this card project I used what is called 3D Paper Piece Design a stamped image. I am delightfully learning this type of Paper Piecing design by a spectacular Women who has been doing this for several years.  I have fallen in love with the beautiful details it gives along with adding your own special touches. I am nowhere near perfect but and loving the process and the challenge.

Let me introduce Designer Mariska van de Veer  the inspiration to helping me take this new step to creativity. She is totally awesome in how she brings her work to life. I have attached her blog here so you can visit her amazing work. She also has tutorials to her creativity.  And that was all I needed to jump in and start my learning process.

Don't laugh at my work once your jaw drops after seeing Mariska's work. I am telling you her work are pieces of wonderful whimsical art. If I can only be a tenth of that I would be happy so here is my piece.

Stamp: Solo Flight_Monica_HMJR1105
 I am submitting this card to:
 House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge-Anything Goes plus a Charm #147
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Hot Hot Hot

I hope you are inspired by Mariska as I was. Until next time...this Shabby Chic Grannie is out....Believing in my Dreams...Its never too late....and away I go...weeeeeeeee

Oh My! Lorraine...thank you so much for telling me about the 'word verification' I seriously get irritated with that process because some of those letters are hard to read. I forgot I turned it back on until I got some new computer protection...You are a Doll for being honest... Sincerely "Thank You"

I totally agree with Dot Antoinette, you are a quick learner. This is such a cute image to first try the 3D technique on and I adore the card you've created with it. Thank you for linking to my blog sweetie, that's so kind of you! Making the tutorials is fun but takes a lot of time but knowing people are being inspired by them means the world to me. Big hugs from The Netherlands!!
