Waltzingmouse Stamps DT Release Day Blog Waltz


Bonjour, welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz!  You should be waltzing here from Clare Buswell's blog, but if you got lost, just stop back at Claire Brennan's blog to find your way again!

Today we are featuring the last 2 sets to be released TODAY in the store:  Paris Nouveau and Very Vintage Labels No. 25...and both have images that coordinate with the new Spellbinders Labels 25 Nestabilities!


I have been dying to try a botanical card with all of the new sets!  For this one, I used the houndstooth label from Very Vintage Labels No. 25, with a smaller one from the set tucked inside.  The sentiment is from French Country.  I stamped the background using images from Paris Nouveau, and also the previously-released sets Text-It and Roses in Bloom!


I stamped the text using Fresh Ink in Chocolate.  First I stamped off on a piece of scratch paper, and before stamping the image, I ran my finger over the stamp take more of the ink off.   I just love the whole look, and can't wait to try it again.

For my Paris Nouveau card, I used this piece of artwork as inspiration!  It's called "Eiffel Tower Roses" by Angela Staehling.  I found the link for the print HERE and saved it on my pinterest board!


Eiffel Towel Roses by Angela Staehling
Here is my card:


EEK, I am loving the Eiffel Tower as much as the French Country rooster!  Stamped the cane print from Heirloom Patterns in the background, a label and sentiment from Paris Nouveau, and a flourish from Flourishes-Scallops and Dots.



The pansies are from Afternoon Tea Sentiments, colored with Copic markers. I also sponged Antique Linen Distress ink over the top of the flowers after coloring them.   Added lots of dimensionals and a few little pearls!

I have had so much fun working with all of the new stamp sets!  Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to leave such wonderful comments.  If you happen to leave one today, you may just win a stamp set of choice!  

This time around EACH of the DT members will randomly draw one name from their blogs and submit the name to Lynn.  Then Lynn will randomly draw one name from that list to get the winner.  So, the more comments you leave, the greater your chance to win...good luck!  Commenters will have until 6:59 AM EST on Saturday, March 3rd to post a comment. The winner will be posted on Claire's blog on Sunday, March 4th.

It's a joy to view your projects. Love the softness of the first card - do different from the rest of the takes on the DT.

And then the BG on the second, exactly like the iron material of the tower itself. Just walked up those 300+ steps a couple months ago.

Kate W. said...

Wowzers! These are eye-popping beauties! You did an amazing job is creating soft-feeling cards that have tons of subtle texture! Love 'em!!!

I'm not sure how to say "these are freaking amazing" in French, but I would if I could! :-) The subtle neutral colors on your first card are so elegant and beautiful! And the flowers with the Eiffel tower on your second card...GENIUS! Sooo pretty!
