Waltzingmouse Stamps SOAP - Day 3

Good morning!! Before I start into my post I'd just like to say that this is a looooooong one!! I made some cards this week for challenges and the deadline is looming so I have added them all below.

So.. let's get started :)

Waltzingmouse S.O.A.P - Day 3 

Today is the last day that the Waltzingmouse DT will be showcasing the 5 stamp sets which were released in May. To recap they were - Dainty Doilies Large, Dainty Doilies small, Join Us, Say it Loud & Gingham & Co.  Tomorrow we are rewinding to a favourite 'boy' set of mine Free Spirit Boy.

For my first card I've used Dainty Doilies Large stamped out on light brown cardstock with Versafine 'Toffee' Ink. I added some cream pearls to the centre of the full circles. I machine stitched all my papers and  added a sentiment from the Frame It stamp set.

Next I made a small 'Thinking of You' card. I stamped the reverse polka dot from the Gingham & Co. with Tumbled Glass distress ink onto blue cardstock. Then I added some blue sateen ribbon and a punched butterfly adorned with tiny white pearls. The sentiment is from Say it Loud.

 {apologies for the poor photograph, it was quite late when I took it}

Here is the list of ladies playing along today...

Lovely hAnglar Only Challenges

Lovely hAnglar Only Challenges are looking for Dots so I've used both dotty paper and dotty ribbons on my card. I've coloured my hAnglar image, from the Attitude set, with copic markers and sponged the background with distress inks. 

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.
