crafty superpowers

Hello, Nicole here.

I'm here with a clean and (almost) simple card inspiration for you today. Supermouse is bringing some crafty mojo to a fellow crafter...

I love to get more out of my supplies and find stamp sets that mix and match well. So I went through my stash and found out, that the mouse from "Superpowers" (or in German "Superkräfte") goes nicely with the pencil from set "First Day of School" or "Endlich Schulkind". I paired it with a crafty sentiment that says "may the mojo be with you".

For the mouse:
  • stamp the mouse in light grey ink on alcohol marker friendly paper
  • stamp the mouse again but on a piece of sticky note or masking paper and create a mask to temporarily stick on top of the light grey stamped image
  • now, stamp the pencil in light grey ink so that the mouse will hold it and lay on it
  • remove the mask and start coloring
  • I used alcohol markers with colored pencils on top to color my image
  • fussy cut your image
For the background:
  • create a sky by using the cloud stencil and Distress Ink 
  • add interest to the card by stamping the starry swoosh 
  • stamp the sentiment and add your image with a bit of foam tape

Get more out of your stamps and create new looks by combining stamp sets.

  1. Gorgeous card. The pencil and mouse look as if they belong together, and I love the shadow-like effect from the cloud behind the image. Great sentiment too!
