Dance Your Little Heart Out

Howdy y'all!

I created today's card for the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. The challenge this week is Anything Goes. It is also a way to enter the Design Team call.

This is what the card looks like on my desk, before it gets cropped for a more Instagram ready look. I have included that image below, too.

Stamps: House Mouse Designs Twinkle Toes, The Angel Company Twinkle Toes
Paper: CTMH Gimme Some Sugar Bulk, Strathmore Bristol Vellum Surface
Paper Size: A2
Ink: CTMH Intense Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers
Accessories: Cheer & Co Black Doilies, QuicKutz Nesting Circles, Spectrum Noir TriBlend Bright Pink Blend, Blender, Hydrangea Blend, Gold Brown Blend

As a little girl, I would watch the Nutcracker. Watching those beautiful and talented dancers, made me wish I could be one someday.  And this House Mouse stamp makes me think that even little girl mice, dream of being ballerinas. 

To create this look, I stamped the image on a Post-It Note and cardstock. For the Post-It, I cut it out and used it as a mask, so I could brush the Peacock Feathers over the cardstock. And for the image stamped on the cardstock, I used Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers to color it. 

If you wish to create a similar card. I have included compensated affiliate links in the detailed list of supplies. There is no cost to you for using the links. But does provide funds to help continue this blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Crafting, 


  1. That little mouse ballerina is one of the most popular stamps could it be that every little girl had that same dream as you? What a wonderful card you have created with her. Love the doily and the pretty blue background too. Thanks for joining the fun and sharing your card with us and also for entering your name into the DT pool.
