Waltzingmouse December Release +1

Hi there,

Today I am going to share some more samples of the sets just released as part of the Waltzingmouse Stamps December release. Before I get there, though, I wanted to make sure you were aware that WMS is now shipping from the US!

The current release, as well as the stamps released in November are available for immediate shipping from here in the US. Not all of the WMS catalog is stocked currently in the US, but more will become available on this side of the pond as they are reordered! You can find all the details (as well as some information about a spread-the-news competition that Claire is having) here on the WMS Blog! This is fabulous!

So back to today's previews. First up is the Woodgrain Backgrounder Set. Yes, it has a huge woodgrain background stamp that is a fast favorite, but it also has some other elements (a few banners, a hexagon) that are perfect for some background building. Here are these images at work.

For this card, I used the woodgrain dot to create some background patterned paper. Lots of possibilities with this one!

Next up is a little holiday card using the woodgrain hexagon.

The hexagons were stamped right onto the cardstock - I just winged the first one and built the rest around it. The little starburst is from Vintage Ornaments and was the perfect element to help fill the centers of the hexagons. Throw in a gingerbread man and a holiday sentiment, and you have an easy Christmas card.

I had so much fun making that one that I thought I'd try again in some Valentine colors.

Same deal here, except I used a heart image and sentiment from Sweethearts.

Fun! All the new stamps are available for sale in the Waltzingmouse Stamps store. Don't forget to check out the competition details on the WMS blog, too!

I'll be back with more post-release previews tomorrow! Until then, here are the other gals posting along with me:

  4. Such a beautiful array of designs, Anya. I'm so loving this woodgrain many possibilities as you have shown with these fabulous cards today. I've been a big fan of hexagons since they first came on the crafting scene.

    Fantastic job on all of these creations.

  5. Yep... definitely the Queen of background stamping! Brilliant Anya!

  6. Fabulous!!
    Those polka dots look like printed paper...
    they're perfect...
    which means I can't attempt because I'm pretty sure I'm cross eyed and I just don't know it! :)
    And the hexagons...
    LOVE them both!! :)

  7. Totally fun!! Love the "sparkle" on the woodgrain....perfect! And.... Anything polka dot makes me smile!!

  8. The dotty paper is great, love the colours and texture and I can see this working so well for guy cards. I really like the starburst stamp in the hexagons - and the Christmas card is adorable with the cute gingerbread kid! Super!

  9. How clever and fun are your hexagons with the bursts!! And your wooden dots....LOVE 'EM!
