My first card is a tent card and I used Spellbinders Elegant Ovals paired with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five on the upper part.  I love the format of this card and it calls attention to the oval.  The sentiment is large and bold and is one of the new sets being offered today by Waltzingmouse Stamps called ‘Tis the Season.  The tiny embellishment under the sentiment is Spellbinders Corner Flourish Two.

My next card is glittery gold and I simply used Spellbinders Pinwheel Delight to give you a peek through the card to my background.  The bold sentiment from ‘Tis the Season is stamped on the bottom and embossed in gold.  Just so that there’s no doubt it’s a Christmas Card, a splash of red ribbon to draw your eye right in.

Coaxing Feedblitz to Publish My Post

by on August 26, 2014 » Add more comments.

Blog friends, this is a quick post just to check to see if Feedblitz, the subscription service I’m using, will pick it up and send it out.  I had a post earlier today and the feed was not sent out to notify you (I’m sad about that).   Hopefully it’s just momentary indigestion and blog post publishing is back to normal.

Thanks so much!! Back again tomorrow with my regularly scheduled post :-)

Baby Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Vintage Baby Shower - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hiya there sweet friends – three cards to share today.  Yep, count ‘em.  Yeah, two of them you would never know I made, but I sure had fun doing it :-)  So today is Day Three of the Waltzingmouse Stamps August Releases.  There were so many sets with this release that you should definitely hop around and have a look see.  For me, first up is a baby shower card using the new Waltzingmouse Vintage Baby Shower set.  It’s a clear stamp set and the detail is absolutely phenomenal.

I simply stamped the parasol with Memento Ink (there is a die being released, however I fussy cut the parasol) and popped it up on my card.  I have a very classic card base with Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One layered with Spellbinders Marvelous Squares.   I rimmed a plain panel and my Marvelous Squares panel with a Krylon Gold Marker that I simply drag around the edge while pressing into the cardstock.

SUPPLIES I USED
Stamps Waltzingmouse Stamps - Vintage Baby Shower (available 8/27)
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Natural White Smooth 80 lb Cardstock, PTI Sweet Blush
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One, Spellbinders Marvelous Squares, Recollections Pearls, Spare Parts Brad, Hug Snug Seam Binding, Gold Krylon Pen

These watercolor cards were an absolute dream to make!  It’s been years since I messed around with stamping and watercolor but it’s a trend that has come back around :-)  Those of you who have been stamping for a while might remember that for a while we watercolored everything!  These were quick and easy and the watercolor background pairs perfectly with the bold sentiments in the new Waltzingmouse Hello Happy Thanks set.  The hardest part of this adventure was exercising restraint.  I wanted to pop it up, glam it up, ribbon it up and many might even think I’ve gone too far here, but a simple embellishment of Spellbinders Layered Flowers and a pennant cut of ribbon – that’s it.

I made lots of backgrounds and mis-stamped on my favorite one which led me to cutting it out.  I loved the result of popping one background up over another – let’s just call that my happy mistake.  I used Distress Reinkers and placed a dot of each color on my teflon mat and spritzed with water.  Then I misted the top of my watercolor paper  and laid it down on my teflon mat.  When I picked it up, there’s enough water that the paint starts to run down the page.  I spritzed more as needed.  Hows that for easy?  As hard as you may try, no two will come out the same!  I sped up the drying by using my heatgun then trimmed to size.
