For my 5-3/4″ square card today the inspiration came from the matting layer of Pretty Panels #1.  This was pushed around on my desktop all week and in the end I decided that I would build it into a dainty border in which I could showcase Snowflake 1 Die  and a pretty stamped snowflake from Flurries.  Do you see it?   I simply took the matting layer and laid one across the other like a ‘+’, I thought that was pretty spiffy.  Never one to exercise restraint, I did it again, so my bordering layer consists of 4 matting layer outlines all crisscrossed like an “*” asterisk you can see the progression below.

I used the Stitched Tags Die Set for my sentiment and cut a notch out of the end.  The gorgeous round die is a new die from Spellbinders called Spellbinders Royal Circle.

SUPPLIES I USED
Stamps Waltzingmouse Stamps - Flurries, Snowflake 1 Die, Pretty Panels #1, Stitched Tags Die Set
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest, Natural White, Smooth 80 lb Cardstock, Kraft Paper,
Ink: Versamark and cream embossing powder
Accessories: Spellbinders Royal Circle, Recollection Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon

This adorable little elf was too cute not to make up a quick box and stamp him on a tag.  He’s from the Elf Made set and there are a bunch of stamps that will work for your little ones and big little ones – if you know what I mean.  I stamped and embossed the snowflake from Flurries onto a gable box and stamped the elf on the largest tag from the Stitched Tags Die Set.  All in all, ready to go in less than 10 :-)

Waltzingmouse Stamps – October 2014 Releases – Day 3

Hi there  blog friends!   Today is Day Three of the new releases for Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The set we’re showcasing today is called  Elf Made.  How about one more Christmas Card?  Red and white had to be the order of the day as I’m using the peppermint candy stamp as the focal point for my card today.  It made me think of a box of candies so I used the vertical and horizontal ribbon just like you would on a tied package :-)

I started out with a card base that measures 5-1/2″ x 6-3/4″ and layered on Spellbinders Majesty followed by a 2-1/4″ x 6″ panel and topped with  Spellbinders Mary Border.  The Mary Border is a pattern of three so I added three stamped Peppermint pinwheels cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small.  The card is topped off with a satin ribbon and the sentiment is cut from Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.  Have you noticed how I’m whittling away and my Christmas stack – hehe?  Seriously, if I pull what I’ve made so far this year, I just might be covered :-)

SUPPLIES I USED

Waltzingmouse Stamps – October 2014 Releases – Day 2

Christmas Card Making ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Jolly Old Elf , Pretty Panels 1 and Pretty Panels 2 - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there  blog friends!  Today is Day Two of the new releases for Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The set we’re showcasing today is called Jolly Old Elf and it’s a hoot!   Elves, and gnomes and santa’s and you can mix them up with different hats and embellishments.  I stamped up a quite a few and then decided to go with the santa/elf in the quilted hat and the cute sentiment that says “Have your ‘elf’ a merry little Christmas.

I created the vertical panel with Pretty Panels 1 by just half cutting it so that the shape comes out just on the bottom.  Then added Pretty Panels 2 up top with the sentiment.  My elf/santa was cut using a digital cutter and it would also be fairly easy for those who like to fussy cut.  By the way, the previews all lead up to release day which is Tuesday, October 28th – at which time all of the products we’re showing will be available to see in full and purchase on the Waltzingmouse Stamps website.
