Yes, It’s a MOUSETRAP! Have you seen gals altering them yet? I’ve seen a few and it just struck me today that it would be fun to have one on the frig! Write on the note paper and then just pull that page out… the other pages stay put! No need to worry about getting snapped at! = )
The challenge at Sweet Stamping Pixies this month is a recipe….flowers, ribbons and die cuts. I didn’t do very well on the plural of these ingredients but at least I have more than one flower! Counting all the flowers on the ribbon! We’d love to have you play along! There’s always an awesome prize!
The alphabet stamp in the background is from Paperbag Studios HERE, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink… love their stamps! The flower is an old Provo Craft brad… the ribbon is old, from American Crafts. The mouse trap is even old! lol I used Simone’s ribbon technique… I stamped Lucy and the pencil in Memento Rich Cocoa Brown ink. Jay Jay and Simone stamp in brown ink a lot so I have just had to try it lately! I like it! They are colored with Copic Sketch markers
A long time ago I asked Tori Wild for her red hair color combo and I found the paper where I had it written down the other day! I did add another color but I do like this combo a lot! I’ve used it before but you know how it is… stuff gets lost on the messy desk! ugh!
Tori’s red hair – YR21, E97, E08 and I added E09 last
Skin – YR0000, E0000, 000, 00, 21, 11, 13 Cheeks – diluted R20 and R30
Shirt – B60, 63, 69 – G0000, BG23, 32, 43
Khakis – E41, 42, 43, 44
Shoes – E43, 44, 47, 49
Pencil – Y21, 23, E30, 31, E11, 13, 15
I put a piece of adhesive back magnet sheet on the back, the size of the trap. Cut the history outline paper at 2 in. x 4.5 in., die cut them with the My Favorite Things notebook die and stuck them in the trap!
The week is off to a great start! YEA! I do have extra happy news too! Amanda and Cedryk were able to come home Saturday! Thank you for your thoughts and prayers! They were deeply appreciated and helped get them home I’m sure!
