Waltzingmouse May Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Waltzingmouse Stamps May release blog hop. Today the DT are also showcasing the final set to be released  - Say it Loud. BIG BOLD sentiments!! 

You should have arrived here from Carly's blog, but if not, you need to head back to Claire's blog where the hop begins.

I absolutely love this set, so I've made a few samples :D 

For my first card I've used the Labels 5 Nestabilities and Very Vintage Labels 5 Stamps along with Say It Loud. I cut out the sentiment and then using the same sized die I held it down on my contrasting paper and ripped around it for the distressed look.


My papers are BG Eva. The distressed seam binding and button are from Etsy. I added just a little bit of lace and a few of pearls to finish off.


I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp 2nd Anniversary challenge.

I also made a Tea Bag Holder, which is a FREE template in the WMS store. If you've been following along with the releases over the past couple of days you'll know that after the release there will be a fabby competion with an even more fabby prize... but just in case you've missed it, you can find all the deets HERE on this post.

I stamped my card using distress inks {tumbled glass & scattered straw} and the Dainty Doilies - Small. Then I distressed all the edges with antique linen.


I've used Holiday Labels 14 stamps and Nestabilities, the HUGS is from Say It Loud. I also used Bitty Banners and a sentiement from the Dainty Doilies - Large set which is one of the new releases today. The sweet teapot charm was just perfect for this project.


 For my final sample I made a shaped card using Curved Rectangles Nestabilities & Spellbinders Impressibilities - Flowers. You will have to enlarge the photo to see the impressions but I promise they are there, lol. 


I just added some pearls, flowers and a punched butterfly to embellish and keep the card somewhat CAS - I did say 'somewhat' ;) 

Next on the hop is Bonnie and I'm sure her samples are sheer delight!!  Thanks so much for popping in. 

Don't forget that there will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from one of the Design Team's blog. Be sure to comment on all of the blogs as we don't know whose blog the prize will be chosen from. You will have until May 2nd {11:59 pm EST} to complete the hop. The winner will be announced on May 3rd. 

Have fun hopping!!
Sandie

scrapalajen said...

Sandie, love the cards!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I love that sentiment. With sentiments that big, I can actually design a card around the sentiment rather than adding one as an afterthought or just going generic.

Kate said...

Gorgeous Cards Sandie!
There's a little something on my blog for you ;-)

Di's Crafty Flair said...

What a different approach on the use for these beautiful stamps. Thanks for the inspiration.

Linda said...

Stephanie Gruss said...

I love them all, but my favorite by far is the Happy foreverness card. It's the perfect mix between CAS and Shabby Chic! Delightful!
