Waltzingmouse Stamps - New Release Blog Waltz

Howdy!! Well the day is finally here.. today Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing 5 new stamp sets that are sure to be a huge hit. For the past 3 days the DT have been showcasing the sets - have you picked a favourite yet?? If you've arrived here from Carly's blog then you're on the right path, if not then you need to head back to Claire's blog where the waltz begins.

Today I have used Way out West and Back in the Saddle. I was in the UK for the previews of these sets and was just itching to ink them up. 

The first card is CLEAN AND SIMPLE!! Yes, I have delved into the world of no patterned papers or flowers and I kinda like it, lol.

Stamps - Way out West & Back in the Saddle
Inks - Momento Tuxedo Black, Close to My Heart Topiary & Brushed cordory distress
Card - The Paper Mill Cream Linen

Then I broke out the patterned papers and the sewing machine, lol. I can't get enough of the 'Pale Rider' stamp ;) Not sure what to call him but he reminds me of the Pale Rider movie and Clint Eastwood.


Stamps - Back in the Saddle
Papers - Basic Grey
Natural Jute, twine

Next on the hop is Bonnie

and here is the full list in case you lose your way

It looks like your comments aren't being saved. When I came to your blog on the Waltz, you had zero comments. I thought this was odd. I left one and came back later and it still read "Zero" under the comments. Hope you get them and don't think we all forgot about you. :o(

LaurieJ said...

You do CAS very well, Sandie! But the second card stole my heart with the jute and twine. Sigh.
