Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz

The day has finally come...release day for five amazing new sets at Waltzingmouse Stamps! If you came here from Claire's blog, you're on the right track. If not, you'll want to start there and follow along so you don't miss anything! For the waltz today, I thought I'd have some fun and combine a few of my favorite WMS images with one of the new sets, Frame It. I think you'll agree that this new set is very, very versatile:

Ack! It's a Halloween cupcake! Every year my daughter and I bake a batch, but I can never get my icing to look this spooky! I colored the cupcake image from Frame It with my Copic markers, adding some Stickles and the tiny bat from Midnight Feast. I used the teeny stars from the same set to decorate my cupcake liner. I just love all the little bits Claire includes in her sets...they do come in handy!

I used the polka dot background from Off Beat Backgrounds on the base of my card. I loved the look so much, I had to use it on another card. This time I used the star border from Midnight Feast to fill in my square frame (it fits perfectly!). Then I added some of my black glittered bats that I made a few weeks ago using my Silhouette digital cutter:


Oooh...using all of these wonderful Waltzingmouse Stamps sets together in harmony makes me so happy! And it's so much fun to see what I can fit inside these frames! As you can see, the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for visiting over the past few days! Make sure you leave a comment on all of the design team members' blogs for a chance to win free stamps! One winner will be randomly selected from Claire's blog, and another will be selected from one of our blogs. You have until 11:59 p.m. EST, October 9th to enter. Now, next stop on the waltz is the super talented Mona Pendleton!

Paper: Summer Sunrise, Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Ink: Summer Sunrise (PTI), Black Memento (Tsukineko)

Your cupcake is lovely and that frame is ingenious (esp. for those of us who have issues with their boxes needing to be perfectly square. I would *never* attempt a hand-drawn box). Thanks for sharing!
