Waltzingmouse Stamps October New Release Blog Waltz!

Hooray, the day is finally here!!! Today Waltzingmouse Stamps releases FIVE new stamp sets for your creative enjoyment!! To celebrate, we are having a blog waltz. The fun starts on Claire's blog, so be sure to nip over there to start the waltz. You won't want to miss a step!

Today I'm featuring Big Blooms - Poinsettia. Gorgeous, isn't it? There are three sizes of the main image you can color or paper piece (this is the mid-range size), and several more solid stamps... something for everyone and every style!

I paired my poinsettia with DP and chipboard accent from the Mitten Weather collection by Cosmo Cricket, and added the sparkly branch just for good measure (I found that at my LSS as part of a larger branch that I've cut into pieces for card making). And, of course, the greeting is another look at Compliments of the Season - a must-have for your Christmas/Winter cards. The design is inspired by Card Patterns Sketch 84.

I won't keep you long, there's so much to see today. Plus, I know you'll be filling your baskets at the Waltzingmouse Stamps store. (*grin*)

Before you go, be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a stamp set of choice! One winner will be drawn from all comments left on Claire's blog, another winner will be drawn from all comments left on one of the Design Team blogs, and yet another winner will be drawn from all who enter a card in our World Card Making Day competition! The three competitions will be open until Saturday night at 11:59 pm EASTERN. Good luck!

Edited to add: Claire has thrown in yet another competition, and it's a doozy! Details can be found at the very bottom of her blog post for today.

Your next stop on the waltz is the lovely Julia. Enjoy!!!
