Spellbinders - House Mouse stamps!

Just a quick post to share in case you didn't know - Spellbinders is the new home of House Mouse stamps! I have a large collection of vintage wood block HM stamps but I love the artwork on the cling stamps too... these are high quality red rubber stamps on indexed cling foam backing and they are just delightful! This set is called Popping By, and it's a nice card-sized image of little airborne Amanda with 2 sentiments to match. I used colored pencils to color this image up while I was listening in on an extended family phone call, and I added some stenciled clouds in the background. I didn't cut my stamp apart, but it's easy to stamp either section alone - I inked up just the flowers and stamped them up the side of my mini slimline panel here - I thought they looked like they were reaching up to the sunshine that way, and it made me happy. I'll just mention too - I was not a fan of how Stampendous used vinyl on their cling stamps, so if you're like me you'll be happy to know these stamps are not mounted on vinyl. It's cling foam with the index printed on the back for easy placement. This panel is watercolored, and I used my drywall tape trick to paint the background.If you're a fan of House Mouse stamps, be sure to check out the new release and other HM sets! These are a nice large format, and I'll be adding a couple more designs to my cart soon! I've enjoyed these little guys since I was a little girl, and it's been fun to follow the license to so many different companies!

(I added my card to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge for challenge #392 - so happy to see those still going on! Once upon a time I did some blog designing for them and they are still using a couple of my graphics. Fun.)
