Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release, Day 1

Hello there!

Today I am happy to bring you Day 1 of the countdown for the February Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps. This month, we are switching things up and all the products being released this month are available TODAY! So you can pop right over to the store and snatch them right up. The Design Team will be sharing inspiration for the next three days and conclude with our traditional hop on March 3rd.

Today's previews are of the Special Lady stamp set, and the Mother Die, Pretty Circles Die, and a freebie (with minimum purchase this month), the mini Hello die.

Up first, the Special Lady stamp set.

This set has a Victorian feel to it, with a beautiful period lady in her big feathered hat, an ornate circle and some fab sentiments. I pulled a little of all of them together to make this card.  The detail on that pretty Miss is amazing!

Next up is the Mother Die die.

The font on this die coordinates with that used in the Special Lady stamp set, so they make a wonderful compliment. I chose to pair it with (what else?) the Old Country Roses set for some springtime charm. After die cutting the word from regular cardstock, I doused it in gold embossing powder and heat embossed it for a metallic finish. Love!

And finally, the Pretty Circles Die and Hello die. These are also great together, so I combined them for my card.

The Pretty Circles Die is really a great die - more like 3-in-1 - as you end up with a scalloped circle, a fancy scalloped aperture in your card, and the fun little pinked bit that is between them. I can see this one getting a lot of use!

Be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team, as well as Claire on the WMS Blog. Don't forget that the entire February release is available for purchase NOW in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Store!

Anya Schrier - you are here!

  1. Lovely designs using the Special Lady stamps Anya! the gold 'mother' looks beautiful! Your Hello card is so sweet with the dotted paper and the Pretty Circles die cut!

  2. Wow Anya! I love your vintage lady, but the bright yellow blooms on the second make my heart happy! That sentiment in gold is so elegant and perfect for Mom!

  3. Anya, yours is always the posts I look forward to! Gorgeous Mother card, and yes, the roses are the perfect pairing!

    1. Oh Nancy, you made my day :) Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Absolutely beautiful...all of them...but the yellow card immediately caught my eye. My mother's favorite gift is yellow roses because that is what my dad always gave her on Mother's Day. Now my brother continues that tradition!

  5. These are all really beautiful. I love the last one wit the coral colour and pretty diecut circle, but it's the soft yellow Mother card that is just wonderful!


Thank you for stopping by - I love to hear from you!
