Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Preview, Day 1

Hello everyone!  Claire is releasing some fabulous new products at Waltzingmouse Stamps this Saturday, May 3, and we are here today with a preview of a delightful new stamp set called Tag Collection 1.

Up first is a modern card featuring the adorable vertical banner image from the set paired with the previously-released Funky Flowers stamp set.

The striped paper is from Echo Park's "Splendid Sunshine" collection.  The flowers are cut with the coordinating Funky Flowers die set.

Then for a more rustic card featuring the lovely distressed "Enjoy" label from Tag Collection 1.  It is heat embossed with white embossing powder on woodgrain patterned paper.

The vine is cut with the amazing new Simple Sprig die that coordinates with the previously released Simple Sprig stamp set!  I love how it looks with these papers from Simple Stories.

Can't wait to see what these ladies have made today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a preview of some things that you won't want to miss!

Floral Sprig Sketch

Another beautiful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, this one by Cindy Lovell:

Here is my card:

I wanted to use some new papers that I got from the "Park Bench" line by Fancy Pants, although I ended up being inspired by the papers then using only one little scrap!  It's the yellow and turquoise floral piece.
I stamped Waltzingmouse Stamps Simple Sprig and then added some Funky Flowers to the stem, both cut with the coordinating dies.

The circular panel is actually a piece of vellum cut with a nestie and then embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder.  The background is Heidi Swap's Woodgrain and the sentiment from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals.  Still getting the hang of adding sequins to my projects, but I just loved the new sequin tubes from Hazel & Ruby!  These silver ones are from the "Sparkle and Shine" set.

Thanks so much for stopping by...can't wait to see the new sketch reveal on Wednesday!

Challenge Chicks

The first Sunday of the month is Challenge Chicks day and I am late...but I didn't MISS it! Good thing Kelli challenged us all to making a "Missing You" card this month :)

Gosh, one is the loneliest number!  This card is kinda making me sad, lol!   Not sure if I created this with the idea that the little bird is missing another red bird, or if he's feeling left out the since the butterflies are leaving him behind!  Luckily a little gingham paper brings a bit of cheer!

The die cuts are from Memory Box, and the stamped leaves and sentiment are from Waltzingmouse Stamps Teeny Trees stamp set.  To play along with us, upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers using the keyword CHXAPR14 or link your blog to our Facebook page HERE.

Off to see what the other chicks made...
