Waltzingmouse Stamps-Our Favorite Things Blog Waltz!

Welcome to a special blog waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps!  You should be arriving here from Becca Feeken's blog.   It's our first official post as the new and improved Design Team!  Today we get to welcome everyone AND see some fabulous projects.  We were asked to feature our favorite WMS set of all time.

Well it's no surprise that Earth Angel is my favorite set!  So to add an element of surprise, I decided to choose my favorite newer set to pair with it...and that is definitely My Heart!  You know when you get asked on forums questions such as "What 5 crafting items would you bring with you to a deserted island?"  Well these two sets would make it into my survival backpack :)


I stamped 2 hearts from My Heart onto patterned paper from Crate Paper's "Storybook" Collection.  Paper-pieced the dress for the little angel in the same pattern.  The sentiment is from Earth Angel, as well.  I decided to stamp the "Angels" portion over the mini heart from My Heart, and then cut it out.


I stamped her wings in light blue ink and then traced around the image with a glue pen and added crystal glitter.  I love the look, as I usually stamp them separately and cut them out.  She is holding a teeny little garland of mini buttons that I strung together with regular thread.

So there you have it!  My old AND new favorites from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I can't wait to see what everyone else has chosen.  Off you go to Laurie's blog.  Here is a full list of the DT just in case you get lost along the way today.  When you stop by, be sure to leave lots of love welcoming our newest members!  See you SOON!  Stay tuned to Claire's blog here for information regarding an upcoming new release.
