A Waltzingmouse Christmas, Day 2!

Back again for more Christmas inspiration with Waltzingmouse Stamps, featuring new stamp sets, newly released dies, and some old favorites!

Today we are all focusing on Christmas cards and I chose to use two of the new die sets.  I am in love with these dies.  They cut perfectly and leave just the right amount of fade around the stamped images making for such a professional look!

I must admit, the "Holly Sprig Die Set" that coordinates with Festive Foliage is one of my favorites of all!  So beautiful and you will see it again soon :)!


Those holly leaves and berries  pair perfectly with the gorgeous label from Very Vintage Christmas.  The berries tuck right inside those little scallops!  The label was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black powder.  The pieces were cut with Nestabilities (first a circle, then a petite scalloped circle).


Up next, I featured the "Jar Essentials Die Set."  It coordinates with images from 4 stamps sets which are Candy Jar, Candy Jar Christmas, Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, and Jar Fillers-Jam Packed.


I stamped the jar and gingerbread from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers,  the sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas, and the lid from Jar Fillers-Jam Packed.

The lid and jar are both cut with the new dies.  They are so easy to line up perfectly!!


Be sure to come back tomorrow for more inspiration...and it's going to be my FAVORITE day of the week!!!  For now, visit these DT members' blogs where you are sure to see some lovely Christmas cards...
