Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!

It's a new year, and a new kind of Blog Party at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  The blog party will still be held on the 17th of each month and will have a special theme.  Now, you will link your project on Claire's blog instead of in the forum.  You will have until 10:00 a.m. Central Time, 8:00 a.m. Pacific, 11:00 a.m. Eastern, and 4:00 p.m. Dublin time to post your direct link using the Inlinkz tool. The linking option will be closed after that time. From there you can just click on any of the projects linked and be directed to any of the participants’ blogs to get a closer look at their creativity. 

On the 20th of the month – a few of the entries with that "extra special effort" will be highlighted on Claire's blog.  Also at that time, a randomly-selected participant in the blog hop will receive a coupon code good for a free WMS set of choice!

The theme for January's hop is "Sweet Things."  I can think of no other stamp set in the world that is sweeter than "Earth Angel"!   (I readily accept any opportunity that I have to gush over this set :)!


The background is made with the Dainty Doilies-Large set.  A sentiment from this set fit the theme perfectly!  I added little hearts from Earth Angel, as well.



I am trying to embrace gray as a color in my card-making, and thought Earth Angel would look so sweet in a little rustic dotted dress!  Stamped the polka dots for her dress from Gingham & Co.  The circle of hearts is another fave image of mine from the L'il Buddies set.  Her wings are colored with a red Copic marker and then coated in Martha Stewart's clear coarse glitter. 

This is going to be a deliciously good hop!  I can't wait to see all of the versatile projects with the "Sweet Things" theme.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Earth Angel, Dainty Doilies-Large, L'il Buddies, and Gingham & Co., all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI White, Soft Stone, and Pure Poppy cardstock
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red, Fresh Ink in Slate, and Copic markers
Other:  Spellbinders Standard Circles Nestabilities, Stickles, Martha Stewart clear coarse glitter, and lots of dimensionals!

Kelly, this one is awesome! I love that you kept it black and white except for all those bright red hearts that pop off the card!

Totally agree with Jeanne! That Earth Angels set is so totally YOU! (You need to give that angel some blonde-ness:) It's adorable the way you put those teeny red heart accents with your black/white/gray. Stunning!
