Tie One On!

Welcome to the May Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!  We have a Blog Waltz every month on the 17th and you are most welcome to join in! Just use a Waltzingmouse Stamp on your creation and link up your link at the Waltz page and presto! you're IN!!

This month our theme is MEN! Such a difficult theme to work with sometimes - do you think?

I just decided I would make a card that would definitly remove all doubts whether it was masculine or feminine! and I am sure you have seen this type of card before!


I stamped the reverse polka dot stamp from Gingham & Co. onto to Spring Rain cardstock and made the button down flap shirt.

For the tie, I just stamped the cowboy from Back in the Saddle in Spring Rain ink onto Soft Stone cardstock, and then stamped two of the sentiments  with Versamark in a diagonal pattern, embossing them with plain embossing powder.

My next card is a Birthday card fit for male or female but I think it tends to sway towards the masculine - what do you think?!


I can't get enough of this stamp set, Say It Loud! I love using those sentiments in various ways all over my creations lol!

I matched it with Life of the Party paper by Basic Grey as my beginning point and then just started stamping. The finishing point was the buttons which help bring it all together!

I hope you liked my creations and now I am off to check out the wonderful talent with the rest of the friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps!
