There's a clue in the title of this post as to the new artist on board .... she is none other than Heidi from '2 Cute Stamps'!! Toooooo cute is definitely right! You will not be disappointed with these 'cutie patooties' on the blog hop. You should have arrived here by way of Cabio but in case you haven't you will want to start back here at Peggy's blog so you don't miss any of the cuteness!
First up I have 'Up, Up and Away' ... this mouse is having a jolly old time flying his kite ... or as the case may be the kite flying him, LOL! Image is coloured with copics and the gorgeous papers are Echo Park. The ribbon is seam binding which I coloured co-ordinated with a BG13 copic pen .... love doing that! The twine, stitching and punched borders add the final touches. I also added some stickles to give some sparkle to the kite ... I was imagining it catching lots of sunshine flying up so high!
This second card uses the stamp 'Swimmingly Yours'. OMGosh, these mice are such fun to colour and their smiles are so endearing ... did I already say how much I LOVE THEM!!! Again, I coloured with copics and cut the image out. My concept for this card was I wanted the mouse to appear as if he's in the water. What I came up with was some grosgrain ribbon which I ruffled up and ran through the sewing machine. The ruffles create the illusion of 'waves' on the shore and I pierced a hole in the organza ribbon which I slipped the cut image through. He is now in the water ... head out and body in! What do ya think ... did the effect work? The cloud paper and the 'summer' border is again Echo Park. The punched beach borders add a final touch to the card.
