Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Blog Waltz

It's release time!!

Today Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing 4 new collections - A Cottage Home, Hocus Pocus, Say it Loud Autumn/Winter and A Christmas Cottage

If you've arrived here from Sarah's blog then you're stepping in the right direction, but if you've lost your way or just stumbled across this  post you need to head back to Claire's Blog where the Waltz begins. 

Over the past 3 days the DT have been bringing you sneak peeks of each set and today it is the turn of A Christmas Cottage



I have made a couple of cards and a gift bag. On these projects I have used various stamps from A Christmas Cottage, A Cottage HomeVintage Ornaments

For this card I stamped out the trees and masked them before stamping the cottage. I also used the pathway from A Cottage Home. I used copic markers to colour it, then added some Polar White flower soft for the snow. 


I handcut the sentiment, inked it with distess ink and added some punched snowflakes with pearl centres. The snowman has been trimmed out and mounted on dimensionals. 


For the gift bag I used Prisma pencils, blended with Jest-It solution. For the snow I used Star Dust Stickles. For the tag I used the Vintage Ornaments stamped with red SU ink, hand cut it out and tied it to the bag using a soft twine.


For a very quick and easy card I took two sheets of Bo Bunny Blitzen paper, cut out the baubles from one and mounted them on dimensionals over the other and stamped a sentiment with black momento ink. I stitched down all of my papers, adhered it to the card base and voila!!


Next stop on the Waltz is Julia's Blog

Have fun!!

Hi Sandie! I just saw on the WMS facebook page that there is something on in Athlone and then eventually found out that you will be doing a course in Athlone! I am in Gorey, Wexford.... had no idea there was going to be a Great Big Craft Extravaganza in Ireland! Wow! Hope I can convince hubby that I need to go! Robin
