Squeak with this hand-stamped mouse punch-art card

I adore animals.. even cute little mice (as long as they are in cages).  Creating this cute card hand-stamped punch art mice card for our recent Punch Art Card Class was a sweet way to deliver some smiles.  Squeak some greetings in with this cute card.  Did you miss out on my recent class?  Don't be blue, click here to see upcoming classes waiting on YOU!
Create this hand-stamped punch-art card with:
Hardwood background stamp (#133035)
Label Love stamp set & Coordinating Artisan Label Punch BUNDLE (Saving 15%!! #132722)
1-3/4" Circle Punch (#119850)
Full Heart Punch (#119883)
Itty Bitty Punch Pack (#118309)
Sahara Sand card stock (#121043)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)

Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (#104430)
Black Permanent Marker
 
This sweet little mouse was inspired by a cute hair-bow in a my daughter's friend's hair.  I couldn't resist recreating it with my own little twist.
The highlight of a field trip we made to a Compost Plant (ewwww) this cute bow was a sweet find (and better than seeing the alive kind).
The Label Love BUNDLE (saving 15% - YAY) has a great collection of sentiments.  Stamping this 'best friend' greeting with Crumb Cake ink on Blushing Bride card stock, it pops out and ties perfectly in with this punch-art card.
 
Create these cute punch-art mice with our 1-3/4" Circle Punch for the 'body'.  The Full Heart punch folded in half adds towards to look of a face.  Curl the edges of the 'ears' with the side of my Bone Folder for a raise look.  Add this cute nose with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Blushing Bride card stock.  Adhere to the tip of the heart with the Glue Dot.  Trim it down, from behind, so it looks like a cute nose!
This cute but rustic card is adorable with the aide of the Hardwood background stamp using Crumb Cake ink on the Sahara Sand card stock card base.  This reminds me of a cute barn door look.. perfect for this adorable mouse!
 
Create these sparkling eyes when you color in our adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels with a permanent marker (like a Sharpie or Bic, etc.).  They stick on and shine like onyx for a pretty accent.  (Mice have red eyes, but I figured that would look scary, lol, and skipped that.)
 
Tie on a cute accent with the Gold Baker's Twine as the mouse tail.  This supports the rustic look and the cute knots will surly tie on a smile or two.  See my tip on using the new Gold and Silver Baker's Twine with this cute video:

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
