Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day!


It’s here! It’s release day!! Come along and waltz with us to see all the fabulous projects from the designers!

If you are coming here from Belinda’s Blog you are on the right track, if you are just popping in – consider starting at the beginning of the Waltz, Claire’s blog, so you don’t miss any of the lusciousness!

I have a couple of projects today, beginning with “Twas the Night Before Christmas” – a terrifically fun set with all sorts of possibilities!!

I stamped the window onto kraft cardstock with Vintage Photo distress ink and cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels 14 die.

Then I stamped each window onto Vintage Cream cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers to look like it was dusk……The candle was stamped with Vintage Photo distress ink and then shaded with  Copics markers to create a glow from the candle.

I used the large St. Nicholas stamp as my background and popped the window up onto it and added a luscious aqua bow.

My next little project is quite easy! I just stamped the mistletoe image all over a premade box.

This image is actually two stamps – the outline which I stamped in Memento black ink and then the inside which was stamped in Colorbox Olive ink. I coloured the berries red for an instant pop!

I also made up some labels for nuggets that we are giving away at our craft sales this weekend! We just put them in a bowl and offer them to potential customers, trying to keep the kiddies down to two each!! lol!

That’s all from me today!! Your next stop is Sandie who is sure to WOW! you!!
