Waltzingmouse Stamps August 2014 NEW RELEASE Previews Day Three

Today is the last day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps August 2014 new release previews and today the design team are showcasing the final three sets - Great Big Owl, Boo and Friends and Peek a Boo Sentiments

All of the new stamps and dies will be available to purchase just after 7.15pm (GMT) tomorrow. That's 11.15am Pacific, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern. 

First up for me today is a couple of crazy cute Halloween cards, featuring both Boo and Friends & Peek-a-Boo Sentiments. 


This little guys lollipop is sparkly but it's dismal here this evening and I couldn't get it to show up in the pics. 


My next sample is an altered book page. I've been wanting to try one for ages and this Great Big Owl is just perfect for it. 


I used various inks to stamp it out, then I added an outline and shadow with a black PITT artist pen (S) and black Sakura Glaze. 


I added a glow around the owl with gelatos, applied with a sponge. 


That's it from me for today. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the Waltzingmouse Stamps design team. Here is the list of ladies who are participation today...


Join us again tomorrow when we will be hopping prior to the release.. there may even be a chance to win some goodies!!

Waltzingmouse Stamps August NEW RELEASE Previews - Day One

Hi!! Welcome to Day 1 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps August release previews. Claire will be releasing EIGHT new stamps sets with some coordinating dies this Wednesday, August 27th! 
Today we have 2 amazing stamp sets to share - Vintage Baby Shower and Hello Happy Thanks

My first card features Vintage Baby Shower. 

I stamped the image with Victorian Velvet distress ink and the sentiment with Archival black ink. The papers I used are Vintage Baby Collection by Fab Scraps I think they work perfectly with this stamp set. I added some wide sateen ribbon and some narrower grosgrain ribbon which I also made a bow from. The chipboard postage stamp frame is from ScrapFellow. 

From the Hello Happy Thanks set I made 2 cards. 

On this first card I used little scraps of patterned paper from the Love you Madly collection by Glitz. I embossed the front panel, added some pennants behind the sentiment and simply added a flossed button for embellishment. The embossed panel is raised on 3D foam tape. 


On my second card I stamped out my sentiment using Evergreen Bough distress ink and Archival Black ink. then I applied some gold embossing paste with a stencil. I heat dried it before adding 2 strips of the Love you Madly paper on 3D foam. I also cut a tiny corner piece which I adhered flat onto the front panel. 


I hope you've enjoyed my cards today. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the Waltzingmouse Stamps design team. Here is the list of ladies who are participation today...


Join us again tomorrow when we will be previewing three more fabulous sets!! 
Have a great day

Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday - A sketch!

Howdy!!! I hope today finds you fit, well and full of craftiness!! We are only 2 weeks away from the kiddos starting the new school year and, let me tell you, this momma is not prepared for it! I am one of those strange creatures who loves to have her little ones at home, even if they fight for 10 hours a day! We have uniforms purchased, books purchased (albeit, no covering yet!!) and the very important pink and blue lunchboxes/water bottles sorted. Hey.. I guess I am prepared after all.. lol. Oh.. wait.. SHOES! There will be fun times with that one :/

So, this week our Bellariffic Friday theme was a fabby sketch.


 I love to work with sketches and this is my take on this week's one, featuring Lolly and her Brolly. Perfect for Irish summers, no?
