House Mouse & Friends Challenge #40

Tails Of True Love

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #40 - Wedding/Anniversary
Our challenge this week is to create something with a wedding or anniversary theme. Just make sure to use at least 1 HM or Friends image on your project. And guess what.....we have a prize up for grabs this week!!!! Go check out all the details and see the beautiful creations by the Design Team HERE.

The stamp I used is called Tails Of True Love. Don't Amanda & Maxwell look so sweet. That there's true love I tell ya

I've had this idea of stamping a House Mouse image and not coloring it. But every time I stamp these cute little critters...I just gotta color 'em! Then....when I saw the Wedding/Anniversary challenge...I was like "this is gonna be perfect!!" Don't ya think this turned out so clean and fresh? You can't really tell in the picture - but I used Ivory Cardstock. I also embossed the image with Clear Detail Powder. I just LOVE how embossed images look and feel. You can see a card I made with this same stamp -- but colored in -- click HERE.

Now it's your turn to show some love with those House Mouse & Friends stamps!

Lori this is darling! I like the hint of color of the red and the B/W combo for the rest. The jewels are the perfect touch.

Beautiful card ... it's classic! The layout, the color combo, and the embellie choices are all perfect. Keep on stampin' on!

Super sweet card.... I love this HM image, I was very fortunate to have a rak of this image... Love the black/white and red theme. I love how you placed the little foot prints in the sentiment.

This is the sweetest image. I love that you kept it black and white. What a great idea. Really super sentiment. TFS

Such a great way to take this adorable HM image and use with B&W!! Love this Lori!

Rica said...

Brilliant Lori - I love monochrome images/cards - but not colouring the image at all was inspired!! Love the sentiment, fabulous details and that hint of red finishes it perfectly.
