Waltzingmouse Stamps October Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Waltzingmouse Stamps October new release blog hop. If you've arrived here from Sarah's blog then you're on the right track, if not then you need to head back over to Claire's blog where the hop begins and where you'll find the full list of participants today

I do hope you've enjoyed the DT's previews over the last 3 days, as we showcased Seasonal Remedies, Nordic Winter, 2011 Holiday Ornaments and Santa's Coming to Town.  

Today we have the final 2 fabulous sets - Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers.

All of the new sets will be available to purchase once the store re-opens at 7.15pm GMT {which is 15mins from now!!}

I made a little gift set of a Candy Jar and matching Card.

For the candy jar I made a rosette and adhered my image, from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, into the centre. The image has been shaded using copic markers G20 & G21.


The circular sentiment is from the Candy Jar Christmas set. 

These sentiments fit the Circle Nestabilities dies but I trimmed it out with a scissors and sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.


Both the image and sentiment on my card are from Candy Jar Christmas. I hand cut around the image and mounted it on dimensionals. I cut the sentiment out using the 2011 Heirloom Nestabilities dies from Spellbinders.  


There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from one of the Design Team's blog so be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs.  You will have until October 17th 11:59 PM, 5:5 9AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern.
The winner will be selected on October 18th.

 
Thank you so much for dropping by. Next stop on the hop is Julia's blog.

Happy Hopping!
Sandie
