Waltzingmouse Stamps February Blog Waltz

Please join us for our Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Hi everyone and welcome to Waltzingmouse's February Blog Waltz. This month our theme is Designing with Buttons..  yep, we wanna see you use buttons on your projects. 

If you haven't registered your blog to play along then waltz over to the forum thread to do so, and if you're unsure about how the waltz works check out THIS information page on Claire's blog. 

This month we will also be having 'Guess the Theme' game. Find the clues left throughout the DT members blogs and guess the theme of one of the new stamp sets to be released on March 1st. As always, there will be prizes :D 


As February is also the month of 'love' I went with a romantic card. When I saw Claire use the Sweethearts stamp set last month I just had to have it. There are so many wonderfully sweet sentiments that can be used for many occasions. Of course, there had to be pink too!! 

OK, hands up how many people can successfully photograph a white card??? Seriously, I took about 40 shots and this is the best I could get. It almost drove me insane {or to the nearest saloon!!} I tried it with pink, white, blue, cream and brown backgrounds, lol.


 I stamped out both of the large hearts from the Sweethearts set using Victorian Velvet distress ink and trimmed then out. Then I partially layered them over each, mounted them on 3D pop dots and added a flossed button to each one. I got my gorgeous vintage seam binding from Etsy and the fabby rose trim is from An Siopa Bui.  I also added a flossed button to the seam binding.

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of the hop!!

Oh yes, white is difficult - makes so much reflection in the camera! But nevertheless - your card is so elegant and beautiful - it is obvious in the pic - and I guess in real it is even better!

I love how romantic your card it and can identify with your battle to photograph white cards! I spent almost 2 hours working on the settings of my camera on Sunday to tackle the same issue!
