Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Hop

Today is the day!  Waltzingmouse Stamps will be releasing 8 new stamp sets in the store!  The Design Team is having a release day blog hop.  You should be arriving here from Becca's blog but you can always go back to Claire's blog if you get lost along the way.

The 8 new stamp sets are:
Art Deco Backgrounders
Putting on the Ritz
All Hallows Eve
Splat That
The Count
Vintage Witch
Spooky Tree
& Opera Tags Christmas

Today I made another little crackle box featuring mini images from Vintage Witch as a gift for my great niece. This pumpkin and the Count's coffin from the other day came in a little 4 pack from Michael's...and Reegan is a little girly pumpkin, so I thought she would like this...


Painted the paper mache box with orange folk art paint.  Then I covered it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Rock Candy (clear).  Added some distressing with Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress inks when I was done.


Here are the tags stamped with the images from Vintage Witch.  They kind of cascade from the gingham bow like a little vine!  The bow was black and white gingham ribbon but I distressed it with Fine Linen Distress Stain (a trick from Anya ;))!


Stamped a coordinating tag with Spooky Tree for the background and a sentiment from Vintage Witch.  It will be perfect since there is another one of those "Grow You Own" toys inside the box...this time a mini witch :).


REMINDER:  There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on the DT's blogs!! So the more comments you leave, the better your chances to win!
 You have until September 21 at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central (Sept. 22), 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. 
One name from each blog will be randomly drawn and submitted to Lynn who will draw a winner and post the name on Claire’s blog on Monday, September 23rd.

Thanks SO much for visiting and leaving such sweet comments all week!

Now off you go to the amazing LYNN'S blog to continue on the hop!
