Waltzingmouse Stamps October Release Day Blog Waltz!!

Saturday, October 15, 2011



Yay! It's the Waltzingmouse Stamps October release!! I hope you're enjoying the blog waltz! Visit Claire's blog to start at the beginning. Today we're having a look at two more of the six sets being released today! They are Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, these sets are just amazing, I had so much fun creating with them.


This lollipop was the inspiration for my color scheme, a fun pink and turquoise Christmas! (There's a little someone waiting for me to finish taking photos of this lollipop so she can have it!! : )


For my card I stamped the background with the swirly sweet stamp from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, the jar and cute gingerbread people are from the same set. I colored them with acrylic paints. The sentiment is from Say It Loud - Winter Holiday. The ruffle edge ribbon is from The Ribbon Reel.


For the sweet jar I stamped the label from Candy Jar Christmas, I love all the little elements in this set!!




I used one of the oval frame stamps from Cameo Creations stamped in Memento Rose Bud. The edges are inked with Antique Linen distress ink. I added a fun label to the back of the jar too, all the stamps are from Candy Jar Christmas.


I also decorated a cookie jar using the same label, just to show you some more possibilities, the label I just cut out by hand leaving an even edge. I wrapped some organza polka dot ribbon around the jar and some fun diagonal stripe ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


I did actually make the cookies too!! I made some orange flavor shortbread biscuits/cookies. They're a little special.. You'll see why in a sec.


Oh, I added a little label to both jars too. The one from Very Vintage Labels No.4. Ok, back to the cookies now.


Yes I did stamp the cookies too! I've been dying to try this for ages and I was pretty happy with the results. I would recommend only using unused stamps (never been inked) for creating foodstuffs.


There are four small circle stamps in the Candy Jar Christmas set, I used these for my cookies! I would also recommend chilling your dough in the fridge before cutting your circle shapes, stamp them then chill again for about 30 mins, this gives the best impression and stops your cookies from spreading too much. Brushing the surface of the stamp with flour prevents any sticking.


For my matching banner I used the Vintage Banners set, the cute little gingerbread person and swirl sweet are from the Candy Jar Christmas Fillers set. They were very easy to cut out and I attached them with foam pads. I didn't have the right shade of turquoise ink so I mixed some acrylic paint to stamp the banner and I did the same for the gingerbread person.


Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly, can't wait to see what she's made!! Oh yes there'll be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from one of the Design Team's blog. You have until October 17th 11:59pm GMT to comment to be in with a chance of winning. I hope you enjoyed my samples!! : )

They are so well thought out and stamped to perfection. Your cookies turned out absolutely amazing. I had seen someone else hand before stamped cookies, but never divulged the instructions. So glad you added some tidbits to help with that. Your card is also so very Fun Christmas. I love it all! It's like an instant party package. Thanks for all the beautiful art to look at, It's all Fun Lovely!!!!
