A Mouse, and a Box

Decided to play in this challenge since I had this cute stamp. Love House Mouse and happened to stumbled onto the blog a couple of weeks ago.
This is Feathered Friends stamp. The base DP is actually the packaging backing for Martha Stewart's Goo alphabet that I used for the sentiment. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil; cut around it, inked edges a bit and mounted on black CS with rounded corners and silver inked edges. Embossed the spider web in the corner with black EP, added a clear Dew Drop. Mounted the words on dimensionals, and added three more Dew Drops.

Stamps: House Mouse, Inkadinkado.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS, Martha Stewart packaging insert.
Ink: Colorbox Queues, Stazon.
Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, embossing powder, Dew Drops, dimensionals.

My first blog hop of the day is always Sharon's. I saw this one yesterday and I've never done a TLC, but this one was to make a mini pizza box so I jumped on board. This came in handy as that extra something I needed to put into a gift set for a friend for Rosh Hashanah. I'm about a week late getting this out but she'll understand. :) Will post pic of that set tomorrow before I ship it to her. I used Papertrey Ink's Mazel Tov set for the images. I stamped the blue CS with two different images for background before assembling the box. Did the Tree of Life on silver CS with Stazon. Cut that out and embossed with three nesting scalloped Nestabilities. For the sentiment I just rounded the corners. Added the rhinestones for some pretty sparkle. I also made a set of 8 monogrammed note cards to go inside box.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Mazel Tov.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS, Making Memories silver CS.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Nestabilities, rhinestones, dimensionals.
