Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Blog Waltz

The big day is finally here!  You are now able to order eight terrific new sets from Waltzingmouse Stamps!  And, believe me, you’re going to have a hard time deciding on what to order - these sets are simply fabulous!  Today the design team is having their usual release day blog waltz.  If you came here from Claire’s blog you’re on the right track.  Otherwise, start at the beginning so you don’t miss a thing!  Here’s the blog waltz order:

Before I share my card, I want to first thank all of you for your wonderful comments.  I was really taken aback by all the kind things you had to say.  I wish I could reply to each of you but, alas, time gets away from me.  But please know I appreciate you!  Okay, now for the card:



I have to admit, after days of stamping and creating, I wanted to make a quick and simple card for today.  I also really liked my other flourished cards from yesterday and I wanted to use the new Flourishes - Scallops and Dots set once again!   This little card would be great  for someone with a birthday on the Fourth of July, don't you think? The star was created by stamping the reverse polka dot border stamp from Gingham & Co. onto white cardstock with red ink.  I then punched it out with a star punch.  The sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes.  Can you believe there was a sentiment that worked perfectly?  I simply inked up the first few words of "have a blast on your big day," added an exclamation mark and there you have it!  That way this card doesn't have to be a birthday card if I can't find anyone having a birthday Monday...lol!  Oh, and it's hard to tell, but I added some sparkle with my Stardust gel pen (click on photo to make larger):



Thanks again for stopping by.  It has been a great few days of WMS fun and I can't wait to hear what everyone is buying!  And if you haven’t already, you’ll want to make sure you leave comments on each of the design team members’ blogs.  There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from one of our blogs. You have until Saturday, July 2nd, at 11:59 pm EST, 10:59 pm Central, and 8:59 pm PST to enter.

Next stop on the waltz is the wonderful Belinda Chang Langner.  You won’t want to miss out on what she has to share today!

Jennifer, I very much like your card in the CAS style. These flourishes are very beautiful and I think they offer many possibilities for making a card.

this is such a fun card: I love seeing the CAS ones-they give me hope that I can actually get one made!! Thanks for all your great inspiration over these last few days: I especially loved your card with the pattern background: so feminine and it touches my background of sewing since I was 12 yrs old.!!

How clever to use that sentiment! I love to find appropriate words to go with a design like that. My uncle has a birthday on 4th July - shame I won't have the new stamps in time, but there's always next year.
