WMS July Release Blog Waltz

Hi there! Today is release day for Waltzingmouse Stamps. Four new sets are being released this month, and they are all available for purchase now in the Waltzingmouse web store!

Today we are sharing samples from a new set I designed called Playful Pinwheels - my most recent addition to Green Room Designs!

You should have arrived here from Laurie's blog. Claire's blog is the start of the waltz, so head back to her if you're just popping in, she has a list of all the Design Team members participating. Tosh will be your next stop after this one.

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! You have until the end of the day Wednesday, July 4 to leave your comments. Winners will be announced on the WMS Blog on the 6th.

Ok, now that those details are out of the way - let me introduce you to Playful Pinwheels!


Playful Pinwheels is the perfect summertime set, it contains a large pinwheel outlines and lots of fillers so you can color it however you like. In the above card, I used just the solid fillers to color my pinwheels. I included separate images for the topside and underside of the pinwheel so you really can customize it to your little heart's desire!

I combined these pinwheels (cut with the coordinating cut file) with the jar image from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers. Don't you just love the colors? It is just so HAPPY!


This next card, which is just perfect for the 4th of July, combines some of the patterned fillers. AND - it spins! I'll show you how I did it later this week.


And the sentiments are so fun, they will carry you far past summertime, I promise!


There is also a selection of small pinwheels in the set - one is a line image for your coloring pleasure, and the others are all 'pre-made' patterned pinwheels. For this card, I used the small solid design to create some patterned paper. I wanted to give something neutral a shot, so I stamped the image onto Kraft cardstock in white ink.


This card features the small patterned pinwheels - I created this card for this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge.  As mentioned before, there are electronic cut files for both the large and small pinwheel (with sticks or without :), but I just good old-fashioned fussy cut these babies.  Easy peasy, so don't fret if you don't have an electronic cutter!


SO what do you think? I can't wait to hear your thoughts - this set is so much fun to play with, just love to create so many different colors and styles of pinwheels. I, for one, can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has come up with!

Tosh is your next stop! Enjoy the rest of the waltz! The rest of the details and supply list are forthcoming!

  15. Yup! Another must have stamp set. I have made cards with actual pinwheels on them but sometimes that much dimension is TOO much. It will be wonderful having a flatter option to play with.
