Waltzingmouse Sneak Peek - Day 2 - Nutcracker Sweet

Good day and welcome to another preview day for Waltzingmouse Stamps! We are releasing 5 new sets on Sunday September 12th for your stamping pleasure!!

Today I am previewing Nutcracker Sweet - such a cute play on words! 

Now I have to tell you (but don't tell Claire..) that I am not and never have been a Nutcracker fan......I am afraid of them - I mean those HUGE teeth used to scare the c.r.a.p. out of me when I was little and my feelings have not changed. So when I was challenged with this stamp set - I sighed - very heavily lol!

So my Nutcracker became a pretty Nutcracker, simply so that I could show it who was boss!


I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black as per usual and coloured him up with my copic markers. You will see that I coloured his hands purple - because he is wearing gloves.....k.....

A little sewing around the edge - my sewing machine kind of got away from me in the upper corner - I thought I was sewing but I think his eyes were haunting me.....

You can see on my card base I have stamped a stamp from the new Musical Backgrounds which will be available on Sunday also.  It is the reverse music - that is this stamp doesn't stamp the notes, it stamps the background and leaves the notes the same colour as the cardstock - get it?

That's it for today from me, but everyone on the design team have some awesomeness you won't want to miss!! and don't forget to come back tomorrow for another peek!

They will be surprised how very early Bonnie is this year with her cards!! Then again, maybe if you mail it today - it will arrive by Christmas (wink!)
