Back in the Saddle....Sketch

I'm back after a stamping absence for most of May.  I have a lot of catching up to do with some past projects, but to get "back in the saddle" I started with a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches by Rita Wright. These sketches always provide me with a wonderful starting point!


I turned the sketch and chose to make a bit of a shaker card...


I used the Phrase Play #1 set from Papertrey Ink and some papers from Dear Lizzy and DCWV.  The sparkly star is cut with PTI's Seeing Stars dies.  I used some super sparkly silver paper from Renee Lynch ;). Think she said it's from Michael's!


I added a stencil from DCWV along the bottom with some white embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi.  The sentiment from Phrase Play #1 is heat embossed in white on the acrylic window.  I wanted to be able to see the sparkly silver stars inside, but still see the textured arrows!

Will be back this week with some past 12 Kits projects and a challenge with the Challenge Chicks!  See you soon and thanks for stopping by today!

Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Blog Hop

Today is the day at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Claire has released some wonderful new products and they are available for purchase now HERE.  They are:

Tag Collection 1 stamp set
Stitched Tag Die Set
Folding Tag Die Set 
Simple Sprig die 

We are having our traditional blog hop today.  You should be arriving here from Tosha's blog.   If you need to go back to the beginning, just visit Claire's blog for the full list HERE.

Today I decided to use the Folding Tag Die set again, along with the Funky Flower dies, and papers from Pebbles "Family Ties" Collection...


Claire's Funky Flower dies are just amazing, I must say!  They coordinate perfectly with the stamps but cut other materials like this wool felt so beautifully, too!  I added a little heart cut with one of the hole reinforcers included in the Folding Tag die set with a little french knot.  The tag was stamped with the leaves from the Gift Card It stamp set and a sentiment from the new Tag Collection 1.


DON'T FORGET:  Claire is having a contest!  One random comment, chosen from all of the those left on the Design Team members' blogs, will receive a code equal to a large free stamp set...although it can be used on anything in the store!!  You have until Monday, May 5th at midnight to leave comments, and the winner will be announced on Claire's blog on Tuesday May 6th.

Thanks SO much for all of the visits to my blog and the lovely comments you left me this week!  
Happy shopping!  Now off to BECCA'S BLOG where you are sure to find something amazing!

Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Preview, Day 3

Today we are featuring a wonderful new product at Waltzingmouse Stamps that will be available tomorrow on Saturday, May 3!  It's called the Folded Tag Die Set!  We are all featuring holiday tags today and I got to do Christmas again.

The tag comes with the most adorable shaped reinforcers, and a mini tag banner that can fit on the front!


My obsession with the Pinstripe Backgrounders continues, this time I used the Pinstripe Mini. The snowflake is from Nordic Winter.

It opens to reveal a cute little pocket where you can tuck a photo, a treat, a greeting...


I stamped the inside with the Pinstripe Mini, a sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas, and a stripe from Nordic Winter.

Tomorrow is RELEASE DAY!  Stay tuned to Claire's blog HERE for release and contest information.  The DT will be back with a blog hop at 2:00 PM EST.  Until then these lovely ladies are also featuring projects today...

Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Preview, Day 2

Back again with more new Waltzingmouse Stamps products that Claire will release in the store on Saturday, May 3.  Today we have these awesome Stitched Tag Dies!  I focused on the largest tag today, but there are 3 sizes and the cutest little reinforcer for the hole at the top, too.

We are featuring the dies in action for different holidays and I got Christmas, yippee!  These tags coordinate perfectly with so many of Claire's homespun sets.  Of course I chose a favorite of mine, Sewing Box-Christmas to make a tag set.  I also used sentiments from the Tag Collection 1 stamp set that was shown yesterday.

Up first is the snowman, with the Cabin Plaid Backgrounder, too!


Then the stocking with the faux stitching from Off Beat Backgrounds...


 And the mitten with the plaid stripe from Off Beat Backgrounds...


Added lots of dimension for each tag, too...



A happy Stitched Tag trio!


Tomorrow is yet another product preview that you are just going to love!  Until then, go and see the other DT members who are featuring projects with the Stitched Tag Dies today!

Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Preview, Day 1

Hello everyone!  Claire is releasing some fabulous new products at Waltzingmouse Stamps this Saturday, May 3, and we are here today with a preview of a delightful new stamp set called Tag Collection 1.

Up first is a modern card featuring the adorable vertical banner image from the set paired with the previously-released Funky Flowers stamp set.



The striped paper is from Echo Park's "Splendid Sunshine" collection.  The flowers are cut with the coordinating Funky Flowers die set.

Then for a more rustic card featuring the lovely distressed "Enjoy" label from Tag Collection 1.  It is heat embossed with white embossing powder on woodgrain patterned paper.


The vine is cut with the amazing new Simple Sprig die that coordinates with the previously released Simple Sprig stamp set!  I love how it looks with these papers from Simple Stories.

Can't wait to see what these ladies have made today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a preview of some things that you won't want to miss!
