A Waltzingmouse Christmas!

Today is the start of a special event..."A Waltzingmouse Christmas!"  We are celebrating Christmas early with four days of projects highlighting both previously-released and new Christmas sets from Waltzingmouse Stamps!

Claire will also be releasing two more amazing sets which you will be hearing about (and seeing) SOON, as well as MORE new die sets that coordinate with some of your favorite Waltzingmouse Christmas sets!  Then we will conclude with a Pajama Party on Friday.  You can view the details on Claire's blog and get a head start on making some of your projects HERE.

Today we are focusing on Alpine Christmas, the gorgeous new set that Claire just released in the store last week.  It's such a unique one, unlike anything in my collection.  Those mountains make me "ooh" and "ahh" every time I take out the set!  AND, this set is the first one featuring her new coordinating dies!

For my first project, I stamped the scenic mountain range and village in some soft blues and browns.  In real life this reminds me of a vintage postcard.


Stamped the village twice and added some Stampendous Crystal Snow on the mountain tops...and rooftops! I love each and every sentiment she included, just as charming as all of the images.  Isn't the font so gorgeous?


Next up is a card fit for a gingham girl...:)


I adore the little cottage and the snowman scene!  I stamped the trees and snowman in Versamark and then heat-embossed them in white.  Did a bit of masking and added the red cottage.


Added some white pencil coloring to add to the snowy, blustery feel :) 

Be sure to come back tomorrow as there is more Christmas fun to be had!  Until then, visit these Design Team members who will be featuring Alpine Christmas today...

Beautiful cards, Kelly. What an amazing job you did with the sparkly snow on the mountain of this set.

Your gingham card is so delightful with your images on kraft...I love that look, and your red gingham ribbon is so perfect...what a great addition.

I knew you would have a touch of gingham in there Kelly...love this sweet Alpine set. Your first card does remind me of a vintage post card with the tan muted colors and I love that pop of red in the second. I think I recognize that embossing folder!
