Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!

Time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!  This month's theme is a great one for creative interpretation...it's New Beginnings!  



Ever make a card and run out of room for the sentiment? That's exactly what happened with this one!  I was going to stamp the sentiment over the patterned lawn, but when I did a test, all of the patterns made it disappear!  Maybe it's for the best because this card could be for a new home OR a new married couple (since I added those little hearts).  Not to mention that it kind of has a lot going on already!


I haven't made a circular card in so long, and this one was so much fun to make!  I paper-pieced the sweet house and hearts from Sewing Box-Hugs with papers from the "Handmade" and "Double Dutch" collections by Lily Bee Design.  Added lots of dimension, but only 2 little red pearls for embellishments (did I mention that this card kind of has a lot going on?!)

I can't wait to see all of the "New Beginnings" that you found for this hop!  You can add your link HERE on Claire's blog until 1:30 PM on Wednesday, April 18th.  One randomly-selected participant will win a WMS stamp set of choice, and Claire will also highlight a few special projects on her blog.  These will be announced on Friday, April 20th!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Sewing Box-Hugs, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI white, Lily Bee Design patterned papers from "Double Dutch" and "Handmade" Collections
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink
Other:  Spellbinders Standard Circles Small, and Petite Scalloped Circles Large Nesties, red pearls

Super cute card, Kelly! Whoever gets this, whether for a new home, or newlywed, it will be a keepsake forever!

Pauline said...

Oh this is just lovely Kelly, the image and sunny colours say it all, it doesn't need a sentiment! I love the patchwork quilt feel, a perfect new home card!

Lynn Mercurio said...

OMGoodness Kelly, what an adorable card this is. Love the combination of colors and patterns, especially the checks with the little patchwork patters along the bottom of this wonderfully shaped card. Awesome.

Joyce said...

This card is just so adorable. You are pushing me over the edge to need that Sewing Box Hugs set, not like I need much of a shove. It immediately caught my eye, and I'm sure it will be loved by the lucky recipient(s).

Marybeth said...

Kelly this is so sweet. Now the person can frame this card , sometimes it looks better in a frame without the sentiment on it. You put a lot of work into this one, and it so cute it should be framed. I ordered Earth Angel and its on its way cant wait! And Its your fault :) I have to blame someone!

Bumblebee said...

Oh Kelly! I just knew this was your card - seen from afar!!! I love the bright colors you used and the pretty hearts and leaves framing the quilted home! This is beautiful! If I was going to make a colorful quilted house card - this is what I would make ;)

Super Jen said...

I struggle so much with circular cards but this one makes me want to try again. I love the homey feel to it.

Tosha Leyendekker said...

Kary said...

Hi Kelly! Your card looks Fantastic!! I love the beautiful images you used, and wow such awesome paper piecing! Beautiful colours and design!! Great job!! {hugs}

Cathy Weber said...

Oh Kelly, I can't wait to pin this card. I have tried to paper piece this image before and it looked horrible, you did it perfectly! I cracked up when you said you didn't leave room for the sentiment, I have done that so many times! That just makes for a very versatile card, it can fit more than one occasion. Great job, loved it.

Kim said...

This is just too adorable! I have been on the fence for awhile on getting this set but after seeing what you came up with I am going to have to order. Just so beautiful!

Linda Suarez said...

Wow! Your paper piecing is awesome! I know exactly what you mean about the sentiment. I think it looks perfect as is! And I love those Lily Bee paper collections!

Claire said...

I recognise those gorgeous papers - I've just been using them! This looks absolutely gorgeous - it looks like you've put so much work into it. And I totally get you with the sentiment...I never seem to have room!

Ann said...

Oh I want to live there! Love love love the happiness of this card.

Jeanne J said...

Kelly this is FAB! I literally just said "OH WOW" out loud in a room all by myself! Love the shaped card, the bright colors and the little scene you created! PS Sorry I'm late - got a new fur baby who NEVER sleeps!

Charlene Merrick (LilLuvsStampin) said...

Very cute, Kelly! I used a lot of gingham on my Dirty Dozen designs this month and thought about you when I did!

Gabi MeWi said...
