WMS February Release Day Blog Hop

Today’s the day that the new set, Gift Card It, can be all yours at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I hope you've enjoyed the past few days of sneak peeks.  Today the design team is having their usual blog hop to celebrate the release.  If you came here from Becca Feeken’s blog, then you’re right on track.  If not, start at Claire’s blog so you don’t miss anything!

This card uses both the envelope die and the gift card die that coordinate with Gift Card It.  Instead of making just an envelope for a gift card, I used the dies to create a card and the gift card itself is inside.  I think the little envelope is adorable and could be used like this for a variety of things.  Think Valentine's or teacher cards!  And, I have to say it, I LOVE the fonts in this set!  I stamped the sentiment on vellum and layered it over the patterned paper.



Well, I’m the last stop on the blog hop today, but don’t forget to leave comments on all the other blogs, too.  You'll have the chance to win credit at the Waltzingmouse Stamps website equal to one large stamp set, or you can apply it to anything else in the store.  You have until March 2 to leave your comments and the winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on March 4.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

WMS February Release Sneak Peek - Day Three

It’s another fun day of sneak peeks for the February release of Waltzingmouse Stamps and the wonderful new set, Gift Card It.  But, as you have seen by now, it’s not just a set for gift cards.  The images and sentiments in this set are great for many other uses.


This card was my excuse to use some watercolor pencils and infuse some sunny colors into my project.  I’m so ready for Spring!  I used three separate floral stamps to create a cluster at each corner after I stamped the sentiment.  I then used a ruler and fine tipped marker to draw a border.  It turned out even better than I expected!

WMS February Release Sneak Peek - Day Two

It’s time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps release coming up on February 28 and I’m jumpin’ in here on day two to share some sneaks at the new Gift Card It stamp set. Today I’m using not only the new stamp set, but two of the dies included in one of the coordinating die sets.  And I can tell you, this set is fun!  You don’t have to make just gift cards, as you can see:


I’m a sucker for great font combos, and I love the font choices used in this set.  So much so, that I thought the sentiments would really shine if I used the chalkboard technique.  I simply stamped, embossed, and added some detail with a chalk pencil and white ink. It doesn’t take much to make it look like a real chalkboard!


I used the card die on both of these cards, and on this next one I also used the die that makes two little curved cuts in which to slide the card into:


I stamped a border around the card, then slid the card into place. Makes for a fun way to add your sentiment to the front of your card:
