May WMS Release Day Blog Waltz

It’s finally here…it’s release day at Waltzingmouse Stamps! Five wonderful new stamp sets are now available for purchase! Which ones are you eyeing?! Today the design team is waltzing in honor of the big day, and what better way to celebrate big than with a showcase of the new set, Say it Loud? If you came here from Mona Pendleton’s blog, then you’re on the right track. If not, you’ll want to start at Claire’s blog so you don’t miss a thing!

Yesterday I forgot to mention that the Dainty Doilies sets coordinate with Spellbinders dies, but I know many of you read that in other design team members' posts. Well I got out my Big Scalloped Circles and had a go for myself! I created this layered flower out of vellum by cutting out several sizes of the scalloped circle and stamping with white ink on a few of them. The smallest one is stamped in light pink. I crumpled up the flowers a bit, layered them together and added a button and twine. I love how the designs of the doilies look in white on vellum! You must give it a try!


The large sentiments in Say it Loud are absolutely wonderful! They really make a statement on your card and all the additional sentiments are great for mixing and matching. Another very versatile WMS set!

Next stop is the talented Lynn Mercurio! I can’t wait to see what big things she has in store for us today! Don't forget there will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from a Design Team member's blog. You have until Monday, May 2, at 11:59 pm EST, 10:59 pm Central and 8:59 pm PST to leave your comments. The winner will be announced on May 3 on the WMS blog.

Thanks for waltzing along and thanks to each and every one of you who were kind enough to leave comments on my sneak peek posts over the past few days. I really appreciate them all!

I love that sentiment. With sentiments that big, I can actually design a card around the sentiment rather than adding one as an afterthought or just going generic.
