I am in LOVE with House Mouse designs! The little mice are super cute, and they are always up to something adorable! And guess what? Today’s Spellbinders Stampendous release has several House Mouse designs to choose from (or just collect them all)! I hope you’ll check it out!
For my featured card today, I thought I would show you how you can take a larger, detailed stamp, and, with a little creative placement, focus on just one element from the whole design. I love to stretch my stamps and find creative ways to use them – so this was a nice way to challenge myself.
This stamp set is called “Spring Rain”. It’s pretty large but will fit nicely on an A2 sized card.
Because I love this these little mice, I created a second card with the full image that I wanted to share with you. I think these two cards highlight how you can really use these larger stamps in different ways! Here’s a picture of a full card:
And here is another view of my featured card:
As you can see, my featured card focuses only on one part of the full stamp – the smallest mouse. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the small mouse overlaps the medium mouse only where the foot and tail overlap. I could have left the tail of the medium sized mouse in my card, but I decided that it could be easily hidden behind a sentiment – so that’s what I did.
What do you think? Have you ever used just one small part of a larger stamp? If not, I hope you’ll try it out – I bet you won’t be disappointed!
I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!
