Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release DT Blog Waltz

Tuesday, May 8, 2012


Yay! It's the Waltzingmouse Stamps May release day. There are three fabulous stamp sets being released today - Half Pint Heroines, Compact Family and Compact Sentiments Part 2. The DT are having their traditional release day blog waltz! Visit Claire's blog for the start of the waltz, you should have arrived here from the inspiring Becca's blog! You might need a pair of sunglasses to look at my card, I went for a very cheery and bright color combo! I wanted it to reflect the lovely sentiment!


This has to be one of my favorites from the new Compact Sentiments Part 2 set, you're going to love all the wonderful sentiments in this 'must have' little set!


The sweet little flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The twine is from my stash. 


The cheery Saddle Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in pink and yellow are both from the Craft Fairy. The gorgeous White Guipure Lace is also from the Craft Fairy


The gingham I stamped using the Gingham & Co. stamp set and some acrylic paint I mixed up to the color I wanted. The yellow card I embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder.  I also made this card with the Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge in mind. Next in the blog waltz is the lovely Kelly

There will be a prize of a stamp set of your choice from a random drawing from comments left on the DT member's blogs. You have until May 11th 11:59pm to leave your comment. Enjoy the rest of the blog waltz! : )
