Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Sneak Peek: My Island

Welcome back to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps sneak peeks for July!  When last we left off I had invited you all to my summer surf party.  Well today I’m sharing a look at the new My Island set.  Are you ready to party?!  I hope so, because I’ve got a lot to share today!

Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating today, so I had to photograph my party inside and use my photo tent.  I couldn’t spread it out like I wanted to, but I think you will get the idea.

Let’s start with the drinks.  I’m sure you recognized the bottled water, but the blue stuff is actually Gatorade.  I couldn’t resist using it since it coordinated so nicely with my party colors! I just poured out the water into my glass and filled it back up with Gatorade and added a fun paper straw.  I used the wood grain stamp from Way Out West again for the bands around the water bottles.  The sentiments are all from My Island and I paired up a few of them to make fun additions to my drinks:

This is such a fun set to work with!  I used distress ink for some of the background stamping and brighter colors for the sentiments.  It's a packed set, so there was no shortage of inspiration for this party!

Now for the snacks.  We’ll have lots of kids coming to our party, so I wanted to make sure to include them.  What’s a surf party without fish crackers?! And I also picked up some orange jello and did a little embellishing on it, too.  

And, of course, there’s dessert!  I found the perfect orange frosted cupcakes at my grocery store and created a wave shaped cupcake wrapper for them using my Silhouette Digital Cutter.  Such a cute way to dress up a cupcake for any event!  Again, everything gets color coordinated with there's a party involved!

See what I mean about this set being packed?!  And there are still several stamps I didn't use! Thank you for being my guest today. I hope you enjoyed the party.  I can’t wait until it actually happens at my house in August.  Let’s hope the weather cooperates by then!
