House Mouse Autumn Apples


I have quite a clean and simple card to share today, using this adorable Autumn House Mouse stamp set from Joanna Sheen. It has turned very autumnal here in the UK and living in Kent I am surrounded by apple orchards, so this image feels very appropriate right now! 
I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir pens and Prismacolor pencils. To make the apples look shiny, I added some glossy accents, although I am not sure this shows up very well in the photos. 
I used Die-namics blueprints for the card layout and the green backing paper came from Joanna Sheen's  House Mouse paper pack, Mouse Mixture. I die cut the flower with the same green backing paper. 
Finally, I mounted everything onto a kraft card blank and used some cream twine for the bow. 

Products used:

  • Stamps - Joanna Sheen - House Mouse Autumn Flying 
  • Dies - Die-namics - Blueprints 14
  • Papers - Joanna Sheen - Mouse Mixture 
  • Twine - American Crafts
