Sweet Stamps - Guest Designer - Christmas Birthday Mouse!


Happy Friday

I'm so happy to be back again with my second Guest post for Sweet Stamps..

If you missed my first post you can see it here.

I chose the Christmas Mouse stamp for my second card...I loved him when I saw him shortly after Christmas, but knew I could make him work for other occasions.

I printed out the Mouse quite big deliberately because I wanted him to be the main focus of my card. I coloured him using Promarkers.

I played around with lots of different layouts until I realised that he would work best with a 'wallpaper' style background.

I used an ancient stamp set from 2008 by Papermania for the sentiment - this was the first sentiment only stamp set that I ever bought and I am still using it..

The funky triangle paper came from my recent trip to Amsterdam from a random, non crafty shop.

The glittery silver strip is washi tape - that I keep for 'best' LOL.

My whole card is a tribute to using things in different ways - don't be afraid of using your Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween stamps for other occasions - your stamps have so many uses, especially digital stamps, as you can make them as big or small as you want.

Go over to the Sweet Stamps shop and have a look around at all the goodies they have.

I've really enjoyed this mini two post guest series, big thanks to the Sweet Stamps team for having me with them.

Have a great weekend, I'm heading home tomorrow, so I'll be heading out with my work colleagues tonight :)



  1. Love the way you've used him for a non-Christmas card and used your best washi tape too! He must be honoured. Cara x

  2. This is adorable! I love the background sentiments and the washi tape. So fun!
