House Mouse/Dreamweaver - with Stampendous and Woodware

Good Morning,
I am taking part in a bloghop  over the next two weeks we are going around the world with our friends at Stampendous.
For almost 3 years now Stampendous have had the license to distribute the stamps of House-Mouse Designs® there are now over 200 high quality  rubber stamps in the range, not only the mice, but also HappyHoppers and Gruffies. To celebrate this The House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog is happy to be hosting a unique challenge for everyone for the next two weeks. The HMFMCB Design Team is teaming up with the Stampendous Design Team, The Stencil Specialists (distributors of Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils in Australia) plus us Woodware Craft Collection Blog Design Team (distributors of Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils in the UK) for a huge Blog Challenge.
To make it extra special we will be using not only the cuddly creatures but combining them with the wonderful Dreamweaver Stencils which are also part of the Stampendous stable. 
We have prizes so would love you to join in with us as we hop around the world for 2 whole weeks, REMEMBER the hosts are House-Mouse and Friends and they are a challenge blog so to play along please add you link on their blog we are really looking forward to seeing your creation there, full instructions and links are at the bottom of this post.

It is my turn to post over at Woodware today where we are joining in with a bloghop over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
The challenge this week is to use Dreamweaver Stencils in combination with House Mouse stamps.
I chose the adorable HMCR57 Thistle Nap as my main image, stamped and embossed using Vintage Sepia Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.
I coloured it in using dye based inks and added glitter glue to the thistle down and faux stitching to the edge of the circular die cut panel.
I chose LJ816 Spider Web as my Dreamweaver stencil which I dry embossed using my Cuttlebug and then coloured using dye based inks.
I also added a little glitter glue and some gilding wax.
As usual I got a little bit carried away and made a second card using the same stamp and LX7026 Chevron Background Stencil.

I hope that you will join us this week, and next for what I am sure will be an inspirational fortnight of cute cards.

We’re celebrating stencils, and using them with our House-Mouse Designs® images. We’re going to bring you tons of inspiration over the next two weeks, and we can’t wait to see what you enter into the challenge! You may use ANY House-Mouse Designs® images or characters on your project, and any stencils and stenciling techniques that you like. There is never any purchase necessary to enter. And, of course, as always on the HMFMCB, “anything goes” is always an entry option.  Link your entry to the linky tool by the end of Friday, April 8, 2016.
There are prizes!! Three entries, chosen at random, will win 1-HMD Stampendous Cling Rubber Stamp, 1 – Large Dreamweaver Stencils Background Stencil, and 1 – Jar of Embossing Paste.  This contest is open to everyone!!
Even though you will be entering to win by linking up a challenge piece, we sure hope that you’ll hop around to each designer’s blog and leave a sweet “eek” of delight at their inspiration! They’ve worked hard to create something you’ll love! Please give them some love right back! Here are the links to the Sponsor’s blogs and our designers playing today: (If a blog isn’t live when you visit, they might still be sleeping! Please, check back in a few hours!)
  1. Create something fun and a little bit wonderful. It’s not a talent show, winners are randomly selected. Use an HMD image plus a stencil on your work (or choose “anything goes”). It doesn’t have to be a card, it can be any kind of project. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
  2. Post your creation online. You can post it anywhere that will give it a unique URL (internet address). Most folks have a blog, but you can post on Flickr, or PhotoBucket, or even on your Google+ account. (ps…creating a blog is free! What are you waiting for?)
  3. Get the URL for the specific post that contains your project – click on the title of your post, copy the URL from your browser’s title bar, click on the inLinkz picture on the HMFMCB post, paste your URL into the tool. Add your name and email address and voila, you’re entered!

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Kimx
