Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Day Blog Waltz

Today's the big day!  Nine new sets are now available from Waltzingmouse Stamps!  The design team is celebrating with our usual release day blog waltz.  You'll want to start at Claire's blog so you don't miss a thing!

I took this opportunity to make a fall inspired card.  The upcoming season is my absolute favorite one for decorating, creating and just plain enjoying.  I think I can already feel a slight coolness in the air (or is that wishful thinking?!).


The big ol' pumpkin from Vintage Seed Packet is just the thing for a Thanksgiving or fall themed card.  This sentiment from Camellia turned out to be pretty perfect, too!  And nothing says fall to me like some houndstooth!  I love my Heirloom Patterns set!

I like to use Flourishes - Scallops and Dots to add flourishes to my fall cards.  I think it takes on the look of a windy fall day:



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 August 26th 11:59 PM, 5:59 AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted on Claire’s blog on Tuesday, August 28th. 

Next stop on the waltz is the lovely and talented Belinda!  Thanks for joining me today!

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons too! Your card is so lovely! I love the background with the flourish set and houndstooth.

We both live in the Pacific NW and I have definitely noticed the evenings having a little colder nip in the air! I love the change of seasons!

Thanks for sharing all your wonderful projects for the release! I just placed my order and it was almost impossible to decide what would need to wait until later! LOL!

What a beautiful thanksgiving card. Love the Autumn colours and yes the swirls do give the impression of the wind. When I lived in Sydney I loved Autumn, the colours, and the misty mornings with that coolness in the air. It is a magical time of the year.
