April Friends of WMS Blog Waltz


It’s time, once again, to waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps! I nearly forgot all about this month’s waltz! If you’re new to WMS or the waltz, you may want to check out the details and go to the WMS forum to view the links of those who are participating. Hopefully you’ll join us if you haven’t already! This month the theme is Easter:



While browsing the online Silhouette store, I ran across this adorable bunny shape. I knew it had to make it onto a card, pronto! I kept the card pretty clean, only adding some subtle pastel yellow plaid stripes using Off Beat Backgrounds. The bunny itself got some polka dots, using the same set. Then I added a strip of grass that I cut myself and, to top it all off, an adorable fluffy tail! I made the tail using Liquid Applique. I keep this stuff around for the two or three perfect occasions throughout the year that call for it. Totally worth that extra detail! The sentiment is from L’il Buddies; I just stamped the first part of the sentiment (“hop”) twice, then the full thing a third time.



I better hop off myself to check out the rest of the waltz! Enjoy your Sunday!

Such a cute card: and I love the "Hop, Hop, " of Hoppy easter. And the liquid applique is great for the tail. I had that stuff years ago, but forgot all about it: I wonder if it is even liquid after all these years! (It's from my early stamping days, probably 12-15 years ago: eek!)
