WMS May Release Blog Waltz

Today is the day! The five new Waltzingmouse Stamps sets we've been previewing for the past three days will be available for purchase.

You should have arrived here from Tosha's blog. Claire's blog is the start of the waltz, so head back to her if you're just popping in! Niki will be your next stop.

As usual, Blog Waltz prizes are up for grabs! One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left on one of the Design Team blogs, so let us know what you think of the new release! The contest ends at 11:59 pm EST Monday, May 2. Winners will be announced on the WMS Blog.

Today we are sharing previews of the final set to be released this month, Say It Loud. Oh - this set is just awesome.

I know you've got lots of things to look at, so I'll keep my chit chat to a minimum and just share some pictures. This is another set that will be well loved in my crafty room.

The small and large sentiments are separate, so there are lots of options for phrase building.

One quick thing I do want to mention - I purposely inked up the smallest gingham image (from Gingham & Co.) unevenly before stamping. This may not be your style, but I loved the spotty look when I stamped the stamp - like the paper has been loved and worn... just a thought!

Combined with Dainty Doilies 2 Small, the reverse polka dot from Gingham & Co., Bitty Banners, and Emma's Shoppe paper from Crate Paper.

The doily was embossed with clear embossing powder, then I brushed some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over top.

And an example of just how easy it is to combine multiple stamps in this set to create your own custom sentiment. I did a bit of masking for this, but most of the phrases are as is.

Combined with some colorful doilies. Love these colors together.

So that's me for today, thank you for all of your kind comments over the past few days. I am glad you enjoyed my projects - I am continually inspired by you all!

Niki is your next stop on the waltz - enjoy!

Anya

  76. Hi Anya

    You have made 3 wonderful cards with the new stamps and I like them all. I very much like the first because of its colors (I love blue), the background and the layout.
    On the second I like the way you put the banners and that big sentiment looks very good on the card.
    And on the third I mainly like the colours and the way you stamped the doilies and the sentiments.

    Kind regards
    Carola
