Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Blog Waltz

It's Waltzingmouse Stamps Release day blog hop!! Over the past 3 days we have been giving you previews of all of the stamps being released today. The store is now closed but will reopen in just a few minutes at 7.15pm (GMT).

You should have arrived here from Bonnie's blog, but if not then you should head back to the Claire's blog to start at the beginning. 

Today we are recapping on all of the sets. I missed out on Day 1 so today I chose to showcase Vintage Garden Produce, Vintage Garden Flowers, Vintage Seed Packet and Vintage Garden Appleblossom Seeds and boy did I have a lot of fun with them.. so grab a coffee and pull up a chair :D

First up I made a sweet card featuring Vintage Garden Appleblossom Seeds and Vintage Seed Packet

I coloured the images with copic markers and trimmed them out. The papers are old ones from Basic Grey. I embossed the background paper using Swiss Dots embossing folder and I punched out a border using Martha Stewart's Antique Lace punch. To finish off I added some 5mm flat back self-adhesive pearls. 



Next I made a 6" x 3" tag featuring Vintage Seed Packet and Vintage Garden Flowers


The papers on this are from My Mind's Eye. Once I adhered the backing papers on I fixed a large eyelet at the top of the tag and thread some seam binding though. I layered a half white doily onto the background papers and then adhered the sentiment, which I had stamped out using Stampin' Up: Pretty in Pink & Basic Black, onto the half doily with 3D foam dots.


 I used the same MS punch on this one as I did on the previous card and I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and seam binding to embellish. Again, I added some 5mm self adhesive pearls. 


Then I made a gift jar filled with strawberries featuring Vintage Garden Produce, Vintage Seed Packet, Opera Tags, Opera Tags DiesGingham & Co. 


I stamped the Vintage Seed Packet with Stampin' Up Ruby Red and trimmed it out. Then I stamped the strawberry from Vintage Garden Produce onto white blending card with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I then coloured the strawberry with Copic Markers, trimmed it out and adhered it onto the Seed Packet with 3D foam dots. 


I filled my glass jar full of strawberries and taking some cheesecloth, I used the Ruby Red ink and created some gingham design on it. I put it over the top of the jar, securing it with red and white ribbon and then tied the tag and strawberry charm onto it with WMS Button Twine


I am entering this into the Touch Twin Markers and More challenge - Good Eats.

Last up I created a Halloween card featuring Vintage Seed Packet,  Cicely at Halloween and Hocus Pocus


My papers are My Mind's Eye Mischievous and I've matted them onto black cardstock. I stamped Cicely using Momento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics. The I stamped the bats all around her with Stampin' Up Basic Black and distressed it with Old Paper ink. 


I used some cheesecloth to give a spiderweb effect and also some black lace. To embellish I used more Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I stamped the sentiment on the other side of my pennant paper adhered it with foam dots. 


I did warn you that I had a lot of fun, lol.
