Hello crafty friends, Nicky here with you today on the blog with a new stamp set by Reverse Confetti called Mouse Mail.  Did you hear already that Butterfly Reflections Ink is now selling Reverse Confetti Products?   Check them out under Newest Products because they are totally adorable!

For this card I repeatedly stamped my card panel with the sentiment 'sending smiles across the miles' in pale grey.  I then watercolour painted a grass strip with Distress Ink  in Twisted Citron and then die cut it using the Grassy Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn.  Next I stamped the two mice and the letterbox with Archival Ink and then watercolor painted them delicately using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Watercolor Brush Pen.

Have you discovered the Uni-Ball Signo yet?  I'm addicted to this wonderful white pen.  It can really take your projects to the next level just through some simple highlighting with it.  Decide where your light source is coming from and highlight those points.  Here I used it on the mailbox and their blushing cheeks and I also made her dress a polkadot one - couldn't help myself!!!  All the components were added to the card using dimensional foam tape and I finished by framing out the scene using the largest frame from MFT's Die-Namics Pierced Rectangle Frames, stamping and attaching the sentiment tag and attaching a few scattered sequins using Ranger Multi Matte Medium which I've always found to be the very best glue for my card making needs and especially good for attaching sequins and other embellishments.

So, there you go, I hope this has inspired you to check out the Reverse Confetti stamps and dies now available at Butterfly Reflection Ink.  Have a wonderful week, thank you for stopping by the blog today and I will see you next time.  You can find and follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Facebook and Pinterest for more of my projects.  Thank you!
