Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Blog Waltz

Woot!! It's time for Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Blog Waltz

You should have arrived here from Mona's Blog but if not, and you'd like to play along, then shimmy back over to Claire's Blog where the dance begins.

Today, the design team are showcasing the two final sets of the February release - PARIS NOUVEAU and LABELS 25. Both of these sets are amazing in their own right and they work together perfectly with many of the new release sets. 

 For my first card I went with a little bit of shabby chic. Melissa Frances papers teamed with flowers, seam binding and pearls. The stamps are from Paris Nouveau, Labels 25 & Compact Sentiments. I used distress inks to stamp out the Labels 25 onto cream card and I trimmed it out with scissors. I stamped the Eiffel Tower with Brushed Cordoroy ink onto kraft card and again trimmed it out with a scissors. 


 For my second card I used more vibrant colours. My Mind's Eye papers, deep red ribbon, flowers and punched butterflies - finished off by adding some white pearls along the butterfly bodies and on the ribbon. All of the stamps and sentiment on this one are from the Paris Nouveau set. 


 For this last card I went completely CAS with soft pastel coloured cardstock, no patterned paper. Again, I used distress inks for stamping - Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet. All of the stamps are from the Paris Nouveau Set. Two small pearls are the only embellishments.


I hope you enjoyed your visit here today. Next stop on the waltz is Julia's blog where you'll find even more inspiration. 

The Waltzingmouse Stamps store will reopen at 7.15pm (GMT) and ALL of the new release stamps will be available to purchase.

Have fun Waltzing!
