Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Blog Waltz

Hard to believe it is July 1st already, but thank goodness it is…four new Waltzingmouse Stamps are now available!  Today the design team is having their usual release day blog waltz.  If you came here from Lynn Mercurio’s blog then you’re right on track, if not, start at Claire’s blog so you don’t miss a thing!

Today we are showcasing another terrific set by our very own Anya Schrier, called Playful Pinwheels.



First of all, Anya, way to go!  This is a fun set to use and one that I didn’t know was desperately missing in my stamping arsenal!  And who knew there would be such wonderful pinwheel inspiration out there...

I just love this quilt.  Oh how I wish I made quilts...one day...maybe!  I started with this photo as my inspiration for my card today.  I love the color combination of aqua and red. 

I just had to make a pinwheel that actually turned, so I stamped the large pinwheel image onto my card base, then stamped several patterns from the Heirloom Patterns set to paper piece on my second pinwheel.  I just knew I had to have some houndstooth in there!  I used a brad to make the pinwheel turn and covered it with a button, although it would have looked cute with just the brad, too.  And, just for good measure, I added some red glitter Stickles for a little sparkle (it is almost the Fourth of July, after all!):




I added more houndstooth and this sentiment from the new My Island set.  I can already tell I'll be using these new July sets a ton over the summer!

As usual, 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 Wednesday, July 4th 11:59 PM, 5:59 AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. A winner will be randomly selected and revealed on Claire’s blog on Friday, July 6th.

Thank you for stopping by today! Next stop is the talented Belinda Chang Langner.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Wheeeee! Someone made it spin! That's the first thing I thought of when I saw that Claire create a pinwheel stamp. {Wouldn't it be fun to make a spinner card?!} And you did it! Terrific card Jennifer!

This is why I paper craft...I can get the same fabulous look with beautiful Waltzing Mouse stamps so quickly. My sewing machine is horribly neglected for the ink pad! Thanks for the chance to win! cjdempsey9 at msn dot com
