Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Blog Waltz

Today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for!  Three new sets are being released at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  And, in typical fashion, the design team is having a release day blog waltz to give you all a little extra push (wink!).  Make sure you start at Claire’s blog so you don’t miss anything!


So my newest color crush is gray and coral.  I just love these two colors together!  For this card, I got the spontaneous idea to try and stamp this sentiment from Half Pint Heroines into a heart shape.  And what do you know...it worked!  I curved the sentiment onto an acrylic block into one half of a heart shape.  After stamping onto the cardstock, I laid the block onto the half heart I just stamped and used it as a guide to curve the sentiment onto the block again.  By doing it this way I achieved a fairly symmetrical heart.  I kept thing simple on the rest of the card, just opting to add a scalloped border from SEI along the bottom. I loved how this one turned out!




Don’t forget:  There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on the design team members’ blogs. You have until May 11th 11:59 PM, 5:59 AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave a comment.

Next stop is the talented Belinda Chang Langner!  Thanks for waltzing with me today!
