Hello dear friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps! The day is finally here... the release of FIVE new stamp sets: Nutcracker Sweet, Music Backgrounds, Half Pint Heros, Bountiful Baskets Additions and Teeny Trees. The response to the previews of these wonderful new sets would seem to indicate that you'd better run not walk to the Waltzingmouse Stamps store to fill your baskets quickly! LOL
We are, of course, celebrating with a Blog Waltz. The fun starts at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, so you'll want to head over there to see the full reveal of the stamp sets and follow along from there for a final look at the Design Team creations featuring the new stamps. Be sure to comment along the way for a chance to win a stamp set of choice! The competition ends at 11:59 pm EASTERN (GMT -5) on Tuesday, September 14th, so hurry!
My card features an image and greeting from the Nutcracker Sweet and Music Backgrounds stamp sets. I haven't even scratched the surface of all the fun you can have with these incredible sets! I decided to go all "shabby chic-y" and emboss the Christmas tree in white then sponge heavily with Tim Holtz's Bundled Sage distress ink, which I also sponged on the edge of the two mats. I used Walnut Stain distress ink on the edges of the image panel and the white cardstock base. I stamped one of the Music Backgrounds stamps in white on the top part of the "swan" paper. The DP is Websters Pages and the flower is by Melissa Frances.
Your next stop on the Waltz is Anya's blog. Enjoy!
