It's a BIG Day!

Hi everyone! Today marks the 2nd anniversary of Waltzingmouse Stamps, and although Claire has chosen to take everything on herself - what a girl! - the design team decided to celebrate with Claire by surprising her with some designs!

I chose to work with Back in the Saddle and Way Out West - two of my favorites - oh- who am I kidding,  they are all my favorites!!

I decided to do some emboss resist, a technique that I haven't tried for a long time! 

I started by stamping the lace background from Faux Fun in Chai ink onto white cardstock - yes I work backwards hah!

Then I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and clear embossed the words. Using Spring Moss ink, I sponged over the embossed sentiments with my dauber.  The boots were stamped last with Sweet Blush ink.

I tied some twine around the panel and secured it with a button.

The cardbase was stamped with the Navajo backgrounder from Way Out West in Fresh Snow Ink and I topped that with piece of Bazzil cardstock that was punched with the Stamping UP! scallop punch and embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing button strip folder!

Happy Anniversary Claire!!
