Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade {SOAP}

Good morning bloggers!! As you may know Waltzingmouse Stamps’ own Claire Brennan announced that WMS will be releasing new sets every other month from now on as Claire felt her customers were not realising the full potential from each set before a whole new release was looming.  But that doesn’t mean that the WMS Design Team is going to leave you high and dry for the months there won't be new releases... noooo siree!! Today, and for the next three days,  we will review last month’s release sets, as well as a special treat for you on the 4th day that you don't wanna miss ;) …but more about that later.

You should have reached my blog through Mona's Blog, but if not don't worry, the full list of ladies is at the bottom of this post. 

I found the tutorial for this Trifold Shutter card after one of the lovely ladies mentioned it on the Waltzingmouse Facebook group. I love, love, love making cards that involve a lot of paperfolding!! 

While this card was a joy to make, it was NOT a joy to photograph, lol. No matter what way I took the pic the card looked crooked.. so it is what it is, lol. 


 Here are some close ups of each stamp set that I used...... 

Sentiment from Vintage Banners

Bitty Banners - too cute!!!

This panel is for your own personal message. The swirls are from Vintage Banners and I've added a white pearl to the centre of each one.


Very Vintage Labels 18 & Say it with Style. I don't have the Labels 18 dies {yet!!!} so I cut it out using my scissors. Then I mounted it on black card and trimmed around the whole thing just leaving a slight border.

Thank you so much for peeping into my blog today. I appreciate the time you've taken to visit.

Now you need to head on over to Sarah Martina's Blog for even more inspiration....

And just in case you've lost your way, here is the complete list :)

Hi Sandie! Your card looks beautiful! I have attempted this style of card twice and both times I have given up half way. lol. Although I love the look of it, for some reason, it just doesnt work for me. I think because Im always rushing against the clock to finish a card done, I always fall back on the regular A2 size. Lol, thaats what happens :)
