Happy Autumn from The Acorn Mouse and SWEET STUFF!!!



Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope you week is going great and that you are enjoying each moment!

I wanted to show you another little gift set of card and gable box that I made for the Issue 4 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine. I used Meljen's darling Acorn Mouse stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Prisma Glitter, and cutting it out with double Nesties. Isn't this mousie just darling!!!



For the card, I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all double matting, the DP is from an older Recollections Fall paper pad, and all background panels are machine stitched. For the horizontal I used a PTI grosgrain ribbon to hold the image on the card and tied it into a double flat bow. The sentiment is from Ann Vento's Autumn Letter Seals set.



For the horizontal on the inside I crimped the craft paper to match the gable box and added another flat bow. For the second panel I used some acorn and leaves epoxy stickers for a bit of shine! Thank you, Suzan, for the papers and the autumn surprises!!!!



This front and back view of the gable box shows that it is a complement to the card, using the same image, sentiment, papers, and ribbon with the addition of some acorn table scatter. I used some little plastic jars to hold the two kinds of fall candies.

SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!!



I would like to offer this sweet Acorn Mouse stamp from Whimsy Stamps to one of you and of course I will add some other goodies along with it...Please just leave your comment before Thursday, November 10 at midnight EST and I will let Mr Random.org select the winner. Please check back to see if you are the lucky winner!!! Good luck!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by and please come back often!!! Sending a big hug your way!!!

Good morning, my sweet Jacque, this is a so full of joy card! I love this little cutie, makes me smile ! Your coloring bring life to him, and all your beautiful warm fall colors are most happy! I love your paper, outstanding inside and I am always inspired by your work. BEautiful. Much love and hugs your way.

Sandy said...

Wonderful project Jacque - who wouldn't love to have this gift set. I love Meljen's drawings and have several of her digi stamps. I am surprised the mice can find any acorns this year as the squirrels are out in force. Now does that mean a colder than normal winter or is it just an over population of squirrels? Love all your work Jacque. It is a treat to come to your blog.
Sandy

Hi Jacque~

I have been away from my computer since Friday. It has been a big transition, with my son having left for Basic Military Training. So, I am sorry for having missed some of your cards, I will be sure to catch up and see what I missed!

You have a great stamp here! I love the card you made...and the candy holder too! You became extra creative! I love the papers you used on the card.

I just love this little mouse...and especially the acorns. If I am randomly chosen, I would love to make name cards from those acorns for Thanksgiving!

Jacque...we are all thankful for you! You give me a big smile on my face when I look at your art daily. That is such a huge gift to us! Thank you!

He IS Able!
