Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz!

Today is the day!  Claire is releasing 2 new stamp sets at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  They are Country Labels 4 and USA 1776!

The entire Design Team is featuring projects for the waltz.  You should be arriving here from Clare Buswell's blog but you can always go back to Claire Brennan's blog for the entire list.

I could barely wait to ink up both sets!  But with Flag Day and July 4th quickly approaching, I had to use USA 1776 first.  I stamped the little star pattern that was made to coordinate with the largest star pre-cut from the Spellbinders Stars 5 Nestabilities set.


I continue my little obsession with denim and woodgrain paper!  I also made some red stripes using the plaid pattern from the previously-released set Pic-Nic Patterns.


The medallion was made with some denim patterned paper.  Love the beautiful font of this sentiment with the cute "stitched" number 4 from USA 1776!

Up next is the sweet Country Labels 4!


That little cherry stole my heart right away.  It made me think of this adorable paper from Melissa Frances called "Kitschy Kitchen!"


I cut the outside label with Spellbinders Labels 4 Nestabilities, and then cut and paper pieced the inside stitched label and popped it up on dimensionals.  The little cherry is colored with Tim Holtz Distress markers.  Love how it looks like a teeny watercolored image :)!

Don't forget about the traditional Release Day contest!  One random comment from all of the DT members' blogs will be chosen and the prize is a stamp set of choice!  You will have until June 1st at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted Claire’s blog on June 3rd.

Be sure to keep your eye on Claire's blog for the month of June!  There will be projects featured each week using both USA 1776 and Country Labels 4.

Ooh! Just look at your cards. I love them Kelly, the cherries are so sweet and look so summery with that cherry paper. I absolutely love how you stamped your plaid and cut it out. I honestly have never seen that done before and love that idea...adds so much texture and almost looks like ribbon. Great job with this release, loved your cards today.

Lynn Mercurio said...

I love, love, love these, Kelly. What a great idea you had for embellishing that patriotic star. The paper flower and button are perfect for this design.

Your "Thank you" card is so adorable. Love the country feel that you have achieved with the lace and gingham. Fantastic job.

I love the star with the rosette. They look so pretty together and the woodgrain background, as well!

Jean Bullock said...

Hold the phone! I thought those red stripes were ribbon. Great stamping. I love the wood grain and the sewing and the rosette. The wood grain embossing on the sentiment panel is awesome.

As if that were not enough, here comes the adorable Thank You card. The subtle colors are wonderful. I love them. Beyond that I love cherries. All the stamping and layers and embellishment is just right.

Can you tell I love these cards?
