Good morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! :-) Today is the BIG day! Waltzingmouse Stamps is release four brand new sets! All of the previews you've been seeing on the Design Team blogs have led up to this!
To celebrate the new release, we're having a blog waltz (blog hop)! Not only will you see lots and lots of creativity using the new sets, but there is a PRIZE involved! Oh yeah! :-) So, head on over to Claire's blog if you haven't already, and she will get you started on the Waltz!
For my first card, I used the new Christmas Cottage set! I trimmed a little of the house away, making this one a smaller cottage (mostly so that it would fit on my doily better Teeheee)! Even though I paper pieced the cottage using some coordinating paper (from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas Collection), I still added some shading and coloring using my Copics. I covered the snow with some chunky Champagne colored chunky glass glitter. I also added a burgundy button to the front door...sort of like a Christmas wreath! :-)
My next card features the trees from the Christmas Cottage set as well as a sentiment from the Say it Loud Autumn/Winter set! I kept this one simple in design with the idea of possibly mass producing it in the back of my mind!
Want to be entered to win a Waltzingmouse stamp set of your choice? Just make sure to leave a comment on each of the Design Team blogs on the Waltz before September 21st at 6:59 am Eastern time to be entered! One random commenter will be chosen to win and announced on Claire's blog September 23rd!
Next up on the waltz, is the uber sweet and talented Nikki!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Laurie
