Hello! It’s time for a new House Mouse release from Spellbinders, and over the next few weeks, I’ll have 3 cards to share. Today’s card features Mistletoe Kiss, which is such a sweet stamp with 2 coordinating sentiments. I colored it with Copics, after stamping it with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.

I trimmed the colored panel to a square, and found some great patterned paper from Queen & Co.’s Happy Holly Days pad. Those soft neutrals went really well with these little mice. I stamped my sentiment with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair Ink and then I die cut it with one of the new frames from Spellbinder’s Pierced Mini Labels Etched Dies. I inked the edges with the residual ink that was on my brown blending brush.
I love how this came out. I often use a lot of colors when I’m coloring House Mouse, but this stamp just didn’t need it, and keeping the rest of the card neutral is an elegant change for these critters. I hope you’ll check out the Instagram Hop that’s happening today. Be sure to check out the rest of the new Holiday House Mouse stamps that are available through Spellbinders.
