Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release DT Blog Waltz

Sunday, July 1, 2012


Yay! It's release day! Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing four fab new stamp sets today! You should have arrived here from the amazing Becca's blog. Visit Claire's Blog for the start of the blog waltz. You've already seen the previews of Fairy Princess, North Shore and My Island. Today for the blog waltz we're having a look at Playful Pinweels, designed by the talented Anya. I LOVE this set! It's jam packed with so many different elements, there's this fab large pinwheel with four different pattern options, there's five mini pinwheels, tonnes of sentiments, three different centers and matching sticks! Perfect for all your fun and cute cards! : )


I stamped the outline pinwheel onto white cardstock and turquoise cardstock, I used the turquoise parts to paper piece the pinwheel, then I used the polka dot pattern pinwheel sections to stamp the contrasting parts in Memento Tangelo ink. I added some shading to both sections with colored pencils. I used the heart center stamp and stamped it using Memento Rose Bud ink. I love that little swish stamp, I really like the movement it adds. Of course I had to had some chunky glitter just for fun!


There are so many great sentiments in this set, if you love to make fun and cute cards this is a must have set!! The Pink Saddle Stitch Ribbon is from Craft Fairy.


Next on the blog hop is the lovely Kelly. I'm sure she'll have something amazing to show you! There will be a prize of a stamp set of your choice from a random drawing from comments left on the DT's blogs. You have until July 4th 11:59pm GMT to leave a comment. Enjoy the rest of the waltz! I hope it's sunny where you are, it's rain, rain, rain here! I'm wearing a sweater (jumper!). It's summer somewhere right?
