Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz!

It's the Design Team Release Day Blog Waltz 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 have lost your way.

Claire is releasing 3 new stamp sets in the store...A Good Egg, Folk Art Medallion, and Folk Art Labels No. 25.  Don't forget about the cut files and coordinating digital papers while you are there!  Visit her blog HERE for the full reveals!

Claire will also be holding her usual commenting competition.  Leave comments on the DT members' blogs as you waltz along today, and one random commenter will be chosen to win a free stamp set of choice!  You have until Monday March 11th at 6:59 AM EST to leave comments.  The winner will be posted on Claire's blog on Wednesday March 13th.

REMEMBER:  These new sets, as well as many others, now can be shipped from the USA if you choose!  The list of the sets available for US shipping can be found HERE.

Up first I have a little card duo made with the gorgeous Folk Art Medallion.  All you need is some ink and this stamp and you can make some beautiful cards so quickly...and easily too!  I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for each card, and then heat embossed with clear powder.

First was Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and Antique Linen...


Second was some of the newer colors Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Festive Berries and Tumbled Glass...


Keeping with the same general layout, I went fancier for a new baby card with A Good Egg.  I just had to make one more with a teeny flocked chick!



The background is made with images from Folk Art Medallion.


Before you go, I just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone for visiting this week and for leaving such wonderful comments!  I can't wait to see what you make with these new sets!
