Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz!

YAY!  It's finally here, release day at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  You should be arriving here from Clare Buswell's blog, but you can always go back to Claire Brennan's blog if you are lost :)!

The 4 new stamp sets are up for sale and they can be purchased HERE in the store!  They are...My Island, Heroines-Fairy Princess, North Shore, and today's preview...

Playful Pinwheels!!  The next new set by Design Team member ANYA SCHRIER!!

This set is too much fun for words!  Anya created the set full of pinwheels in fun sizes, patterns, and sentiments...and then Claire drew up coordinating SVG files to use in electronic cutting machines!


My first card features the big open pinwheel.  There are separate pattern images so you can mix and match your pinwheels any way you like!  I chose the stripedy ones...made me think of the 4th of July!  Like yesterday, I used paper from My Mind's Eye "On the Sunny Side" Collection in the background.  Imagine my glee when I saw that it had pinwheels, too!


I added some extra small layers in the center with dimensionals.  Then I decided to put the whole thing on top of a cut file piece.


This next card features the mini pinwheel and some cute popsicle paper from the "On the Sunny Side" collection.  The star and chevron papers and the mini bingo card are from the Pretty Little Studio's "Sandcastle" collection.


I stamped the pinwheel with the stars and stripes pattern on the cut file, and then hand cut an extra layer to add on the top.  Don't you love the "Sunny side up" sentiment?  I think that it's perfect one to give someone a little encouragement.  I made my own sun by cutting a Spellbinders Lacey Circle in half!

Claire is having a contest!  There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on the DT members' blogs.  Each DT member will randomly-select a comment from her blog and submit the name to Lynn, who will then put all of the names into a hat and pick the winner!  You will have until July 4th at 11:59 PM, 5:59AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments.   

I hope you have a great time shopping today!  Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me such wonderful comments this week!!  

Now off you go to LYNN'S BLOG which is the next stop on the waltz :)!
