Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Day Blog Waltz

It's here!  Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing 9 new stamp sets today.  See the sets in full and find out all of the latest information HERE on Claire's blog.

The Design Team is having a blog waltz today to feature a few more projects with the stamp sets.  You should be arriving here from Clare Buswell's blog, but you can always go back to Claire Brennan's blog if you have lost your way.

I made two projects today.  The first features the sets Vintage Garden Seed Packet and Vintage Garden Flowers.



I bought one of those plain little wooden boxes from AC Moore and decided to try my hand at decoupage.  I covered it with this beautiful rust gingham paper from Graphic 45 and then sanded and painted the edges with folk art paint.


I stamped the seed packet in Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distress ink and the chrysanthemum from Vintage Garden Flowers (LOVE this image) in A Muse Studio's Heather ink.  I cut out the packet, and painted over it with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  My final step was to glue it to the basket and cover the whole front using Modge Podge.  I never thought I would like the colors rust and lavender together...but I do!

My second project features the sets Little Lanterns and Light of the World Sentiments (on the inside).


I found the Authentique "Glory" paper while on vacation in New Jersey and fell in love with it!


I thought it went perfect with one of the Little Lanterns embossed in copper and the star swag image from Bitty Banners!

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Light of the World Sentiments, and added a little glow image from Bright Season and a star from Bitty Banners.

I have had so much fun using all of these new products and can't wait until I see all of YOUR projects popping up in blog land!  Don't forget that there is a prize involved on the hop today!  Each of the DT members will choose one random commenter from their blogs and submit the names to Lynn.  She will then put them all in a hat and pick one name out...that person will win a WMS stamp set of choice!  So the more comments you leave, the better your chances to win, yay!

Love the wooden box you decoupaged. The colors are great together. I wouldn't have thought so either, but I like it. Love the little lantern and embossed in the copper really sets it off nicely. Great job!

Such pretty projects, love that Authentique paper. Makes me wish I had an AC Moore close by!

Disco Queen said...

Wow! It's just so exciting. Both your projects are amazing! It's been ages since I did any decoupage. You have definitely inspired me to have a go again. My Nan has a special seedling table in her garden shed where she plants her seeds & cuttings & cares for them until they are ready to be planted outside. Your wooden seed holder would look perfect on her table. Thanks for the inspiration. x
