Waltzingmouse Stamps October Preview, Day 3

Another fun day of previews at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Today's two sets are festive and full of good cheer!

Up first is 2011 Holiday Ornaments, and you guessed it...they coordinate perfectly with the new Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament 2011 Nestabilities!


I used 4 ornaments from the set.  That little reindeer is a separate image, and can be stamped right into the plain mini ornament!  Same goes for the sentiment "Merry Christmas".  That ornament has an open space for text, and I am sure lots of Claire's past sets will have words that tuck in there quite nicely.  The background paper is from A Muse Studio.  Yes, that SU Cherry Cobbler ink is still getting a Christmas workout!

The second set is so much fun, you can tell just from the title:  "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"!


I couldn't choose what set to make the background with at first.  As I stamped, I found myself singing that song in my head, so Musical Backgrounds won out!  Used the knit patterned circle from Faux Fun Circles, and then cut along the edges to make a medallion shape. 


I stamped a lovely snowflake image from the set over the sheet music.  I used VersaColor Cardinal ink, and then just stamped off beforehand so that it looked a bit more "vintage".  The little vine is also from Faux Fun Circles.

Tomorow is Release Day!  Claire will be revealing the sets on her blog at 2:00 PM EST, and then there will be the Design Team Blog Waltz...with a prize involved for one lucky commenter.  See you then!

Now off you go to see what the rest of the Design Team has made with these two wonderful new sets!

Kelly, your cards are wonderful. I love those hanging ornaments on the beautiful background paper. And the card with Santa is also so pretty, I love how you combined the musical background with that knit pattern.

Kind regards
