More Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Inspiration

Good morning!!. Today I have two projects to share with you using the two May Release stamp sets from Waltzingmouse Stamps,  Country Labels 4 and USA 1776

My first project is a card using USA 1776 and it's as far removed from US Independence as you can get. I wanted to show how versatile Waltzingmouse Stamps are and I think this card is a perfect example. I just love the fireworks stamps and will be reaching for them a lot!!  

I used bright and zesty patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and all of my inks are Distress inks - Spiced Marmalade, Evergreen Bough & Fired Brick. The string on the kite is button twine and I've added a tiny dab of glossy accents to keep it in place. 

Next up I made a Cupcake Box. I found the template for this online and it was a little smaller than I thought it was gonna be. You could fit a small cupcake in there.. but that's about it, lol. 

The sentiment and labels stamp are both from Country Labels 4 and yes, they coordinate with Spellbinders Labels 4 Dies... speaking of which, Claire is a having a SALE on Nestabilities and you can find all the details  on how to get a whopping 30% off your order by going HERE

The papers on this are off cuts from another My Mind's collection. Love this type of project for using up scraps. I added a punched border, some lace and a large Prima flower to the front, and added some pearls and a bow tied from button twine on the top. 

Don't you just love the four different designs on the Labels 4 stamp?!! 

Well that's it from me, but the extremely talented Jeanne, Renee & Iwona are also spreading a little inspiration today so be sure to pay them a visit. Also, check out the Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Pinterest board to see what else the DT have created from these stamp sets.

Adorable projects, Sandie. I thought of kites when I saw this image in the set too! Love all the delicious summer colors in this delightful card.

What a great way to box up some home-made treats with your second project. Again - lovely summer colors!
