Good morning blog friends!  Welcome back to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release.  As you can tell, I’m on a vintage kick and so I found a way to weave one of the swoonworthy little post cards into my card today.  You’ll be able to see the full sets tomorrow!  I recently found a stack of vintage looking papers at Hobby Lobby.  I know they were meant for display but I snagged them anyway knowing I could use them for cardmaking.  When I got them home, I was disappointed to see that the top couple of papers were aged but in the middle of the stack, they were not.  Since the stack of papers was a decorating knick-knack, I could only be mad at myself.  So then I decided to tea dye a batch of the papers myself – I love the results – that’s what I’m using for my pennants hanging down at the bottom of the card.

Waltzingmouse Stamps – December 2014 Release – Day 2

Hi there blog friends!  Today is Day Two of the new releases for Waltzingmouse Stamps.  When I started stamping, the first thing I ever made was a little portfolio with cards in it that tied on the side.  Going back to my roots, I’m using today’s PostCard Set to embellish a little folder, brimmed to the top with vintage look postcards.  My hope would be that they are enticing enough to challenge someone to write a word or two.  Projects don’t get much easier than this, perhaps that’s why it was my first beginner project and perhaps that’s why it’s so easy to revisit.

My post cards are 6″ x 4″ each and the portfolio measures 6-3/4″ x 4-1/2″.  I used Pink Paislee London Market Design paper on the backsides of the postcards.  I love the paper, I have it in 12 x 12, 6 x 6 and also in digital format also which make it easy to print out and use for the project.  On the front I created a panel using Spellbinders Postage Stamps and embellishing with Spellbinders Victorian Tassels.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Stamps - Country Roses and Spellbnders  Labels Thirty Nine - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there sweet blog friends!  Today is Day One of the new releases for Waltzingmouse Stamps - you’re gonna swoon over the new sets!   By the way, the previews all lead up to release day which is Tuesday, December 2nd – at which time all of the products we’re showing will be available on the Waltzingmouse Stamps website.    Today I’m sharing a card made with Country Roses – oh.my.goodness! This set is a piece of magic (let me explain).  I’m more of a precise kind of crafter, letting it all hang out doesn’t come quite as easy as you might imagine.  I drive myself crazy when decorating a Christmas tree because sometime I try just a little too hard to balance instead of just going with the flow.  To my delight, you can’t help but go with the flow with the Country Roses set.  After trial and error, I discovered that you simply cannot mess it up and believe me – if anyone could do that – it would be me, lol.  There are three layers to each image and you select three inks to use.  As long as you land in the same general area the results are stunning :-)

For my 6″ x 6″ card I layered gold and burgundy followed by this vintage Prima Design Paper - Stationers Desk and my sentiment stamped on vellum.  On top of that I layered Spellbinders Labels Thirty Nine and Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG #5. The Country Rose set has a set of digital cutting files that makes them easy to cut, stamp and embellish – but no worries, it’s just as easy to fussy cut them.  I cut my roses and anchored them around the frame along with their leaves.  I finished off with a gold embellishment using Spellbinders Corners and Accents One, a bow, lace and button.  I just couldn’t resist kraft and deep reds for a vintage look but these roses will look spectacular in any color!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon with more goodies!

Question Parking Lot:

Desiree Young on comment #2 asked if I cut flowers then stamp or if I stamp then cut flowers.  Great question!   I cut flowers first then stamp them.  It’s helpful to have clear stamps because you can line things up quite well but I must admit that to me it is just as easy to do with a stamp positioner.  You get a feel for centering them; I have the first couple that I stamped while experimenting and they are not quite on center but are still quite usable :-)
