Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Preview, Day 3

Ohh today is the day that we have all been waiting for!  It's finally time to reveal the new stamp designer for Waltzingmouse Stamps, eeek!  The anticipation has been killing me, so I can't even imagine what it was like for the new designer!

Drum roll, please....

Her first set is absolutely fabulous!!  It's called Heirloom Patterns, and it will be releasing along with 8 other sets from Claire on Wednesday, February 29th!  Today we are featuring projects with Heirloom Patterns, as well as a wonderful new set called Compact Sentiments.


I couldn't think of a better sentiment to choose for Anya on her big day!  It's tucked inside one of the Ovals-Classic Frames.  I paired the rose from Roses in Bloom with the absolutely spectacular cane print from Heirloom Patterns.  I had to laugh yesterday when I visited Anya's blog and saw that she stamped her cane print on light green paper with green ink, heeee!  I must have been reading her mind :)  


I colored the rose with Copic markers and popped up some of the layers with dimenisionals.  The center is colored with my trusty Sakura Stardust glitter pen.  That wonderful little pen really makes things shimmer!

Heirloom Patterns is perfect for so many styles.  While I thought my rose card was modern, I wanted to use the set for a more vintage look...


Both the houndstooth and the striped pattern are from Heirloom Patterns.  The tea cup from Afternoon Tea Sentiments is stamped on patterned paper and I added a sentiment from the set, as well.

I couldn't stop without checking to see if I could do cute with such a chic (ha!..see below) set....and why yes, you CAN!


The chick from L'il Buddies was stamped with the reverse dotted pattern from Gingham & Co.  He is paired with the houndstooth print from Heirloom Patterns, cut with a grass die from A Muse Studio.  LOVE this sentiment from Compact Sentiments, it's so...Claire!  The Chicken Wire background will make an excellent companion for not only the rooster from French Country, but all of the L'il Buddies critters, too!

Congratulations, Anya!  I can't wait to see what the DT has made today, so come along with me....

Cassandra said...

I think you have sold me on this wonderful set, not that I need any help. The cane pattern would be so useful as well as the stripe in your teacup card.

Love all that you do and am very grateful for the wonderful comments you leave. I have left a little something for you on my blog.

Ok, I'm going to start calling you the Tag Master from now on...or should that be Queen?...Tag Queen...oh well, you get my point. Anyway, the tags you have been creating the last three days have been delightful. The one on this post is ADORABLE!! And your cards are lovely. The background on the teacup card reminds me of vintage wallpaper.

Have I ever told you how much I love working with you? You are one of the sweetest, most encouraging people in addition to being an AMAZING designer! Thank you so much for you enthusiasm and kind words. I love your beautiful green cane card, the colors are so springy and fresh. Your tea cup card is something special.. the combination of colors and patterns you used have me swooning.. serious love. And houndstooth grass? So using that. Big hugs to you my friend :)
