Waltzingmouse Stamps September Preview

Hi crafty people.  I’m happy that you stopped by today because over the next four days, I’ll have some fun previews of new stamps that will be released by Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps.  So let’s get to it, shall we?

Claire has designed an adorable additions set that coordinates wonderfully with the well loved, Spring Baskets.  This set is called Bountiful Baskets and contains baskets and fillers that will warm your heart and make your holiday card creating a real joy.


I chose to create a Christmas card from the wonderful poinsettias from this set by first stamping my base of poinsettias onto my Ivory cardstock that I had die cut with my Labels 11 dies. I masked the flowers off before stamping my basket on top.  I then stamped the poinsettias once more onto a scrap piece of cardstock, colored them all with Copic Markers.  I cut out the “extra” blossom and adhered it to the front of the basket with a foam dimensional tape to give it some lift from the other flowers.


I added a few little drops of Dimensional Pearls to the center of each blossom.

This new set from WMS has a big variety of images, not only for the holidays, but for birthdays as well.  Be sure to check out these amazing crafters to see what awesomeness they have in store using the newest released images that will be available to purchase on Sunday, September 12th.
