May Blog Waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps!
I am so happy to be able to participate in another blog "waltz" with Waltzingmouse Stamps! If you've just happened by, please head over to Claire's blog or to the 'Mouse House to see all of the amazing creations folks have made with their WMS goodies! I for one am quite anxious to see creations from the new sets!
The volcano made transport difficult from Ireland and I don't have my new stamps yet, so I decided to use an "oldie but a goodie," and one of my favorites - Faux Fun Circles. Making stamp sets so Nestie friendly was a brilliant idea!! I heart my Nesties!
I cut the scalloped circles out of a chocolate card base and a kraft overlay, stamped the interior of the card with my favorite image from the set and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then stamped the leaf image from the set around the scallop and tied it with a pretty bow. Don't you just love this ribbon? It was clearance priced at Stampin' Up and I think it works perfectly with these colors! Next I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from my Lil' Buddies set in red on cream cardstock, distressed the edges, and attached it to the center of the circle with a foam square for some dimension. I really like how it came out - seems a bit Tyrolean, don't you think?
