Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 2

Hi, everyone!! This is day 2 of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks. Today I am showcasing the darling little mice called Marvin and Marcy Mouse and Cheese Wedge stamps. The mice are sold together and the cheese wedge is an individual stamp.
The background mouse hole was created by drawing floor boards with a Close to Cocoa marker and sponging over the lines. The background *wallpaper* is dp from Papertrey Ink. The half circle was cutout of a scrap piece of dp using a coluzzle and attached with dimensionals.
Marvin and Marcy were stamped twice with Memento Brown, once on the background and once on a piece of white cs. The images stamped on the white cs were colored with copics, cutout, and attached over the background stamped images with dimensionals. The sentiment from the Snowman Wishes set was stamped with Memento Brown and cutout with Nestabilities. The bottom sentiment layer is a scrap piece of Papertrey Ink dp. The PTI ribbon finishes it off.
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps
Paper, Kiwi Kiss, White, PTI
Ink: Memento Brown, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Dimensionals. PTI Ribbon, Nestabilities, Copics

This adorable Tom Turkey from the Eat More Ham set cracks me up...too cute!!! He was stamped with Brown Stazon and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The sky was sponged with Bashful Blue and a home made cloud template. Lots of colors in the grass for depth and texture. The paper is Basic Grey's Mellow and sewing was done around the background layers. The kite was made from a piece of vanilla cs and lots of sponging. Prima, leaf brad, ferns from a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon, and silver cording finish the design. This is such a fun set....I just had to make another one!!

Laurie Wilson, DT Coordinator, challenged the DT to create our own designer paper. I chose to use the stamps from the Eat More Ham set. The images were stamped on glossy paper with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Ruby Red. The paper was then sponges with more Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red. Mr. Tom Turkey was stamped with Memento Brown twice, once on the background and once on white cs. The image stamped on the cs was colored with copics, cutout, and attached over the other image with dimensionals. The sky was sponged with Bashful Blue and a home made cloud template. The grass was sponged and stippled with Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, and Always Artichoke. The leaves were all stamped with Memento Brown, colored with copics, cutout and attached with dimensionals. Some swirly piercing was done behind the turkey to add a little interest. The sentiment was also stamped with Memento Brown, sponged with clouds, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. Ribbon, brads, and scallops along the right side of the image finish off the card.
