Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release Previews - Day 1

Color me happy, it's time for previews of the FOUR new stamp sets being released by Waltzingmouse Stamps on Sunday, November 7th!!! I promise you will want all of them for your holiday card and gift making!

I'm showcasing an ingenious stamp set called 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Trust me, I've only scratched the surface. No doubt you will see all sorts of amazing creations with this unique set as the days go by.

The DP is from the Noel collection by Bo Bunny. I stamped the window in Colorbox Dark Moss Chalk Ink (chalk ink works really well with these sorts of solid images). I stamped Santa's sleigh and the greeting in Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink, which I also used to sponge around the edges of the card base, mat and window. The window coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 14, which makes it not only a wonderful shape, but a snap to cut out!

That amazing ornate piece framing the greeting is by Tim Holtz, which I decorated a bit with wrinkled seam binding and a hat pin. As Claire would say, I hope it tickles!

For more tickles, you'll want to nip over to Claire's blog to see what the artist herself has created for your inspiration and pleasure, as well as my fellow design team members. I can't wait to see it all myself!



We'll be back again tomorrow with more! 

Note: this is my second post for today. Please scroll down for a preview of Simply Betty Stamps November release. Thanks!
