Waltzingmouse Stamps – May Release – Preview Day 1

Waltzingmouse Stamps - Country Labels Four - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps  May Release.  This is preview Day 1 and there are two new sets that you’ll get a peek at over the next several days.  This is quite a change of pace for me, and a welcome one.  As soon as I saw Country Labels Four, I knew I’d be making a gift ensemble and it was as easy as pie.  The set has such a country, gingham, home cooking kind of feel that I opted for a gift basket with homemade jam.  I stamped the labels in kraft and added them to the jam jar and some pretties for the outside.  My chicken wire basket is full of shredded kraft paper and I used corrugated cardboard for the embellishment along with some linen thread and gingham ribbon.  Country!

These are the cutest little canning jars!   I thought half-pint was about the smallest but yep, there is a four ounce or a half-half-pint :-) They are just big enough that two can fit in a small basket.
I knew there was some reason I was holding on to this mini spoon and fork.  They made the perfect embellishment and a place to hang a thank you tag!

  • Sandra SmithMay 26, 2013 - 8:38 am

    Love this sweet gift basket and the way you have decorated it with these cute stamps. This would make a wonderful homemade gift for someone. I am not sure if we are supposed to post our “would like to use more” tool project here or on the other post so I am going to do it at both places. I would also like to become more proficient at using my Cricut machines. I have several models but the Imagine is the one I need to make better use of.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!ReplyCancel

  • Ann RobbinsMay 26, 2013 - 9:05 am

    Another prize, Becca! I needed something like this to put in a raffle for an organization I belong to. This would be absolutely perfect! If you are giving it away as a prize, I would love to win it!!!!! Bless you girl.

  • Lynn G.May 26, 2013 - 9:07 am

    Oh YUM….anyone would love to receive your project. I love the heart in the bow tied with twine. It really makes it pop! And, I love corrugated cardboard. They just got packets of all different colors in at my local scrap book store. I wonder if it would die cut??? Probably flatten it out tho’ huh ! Fabulous project. Thank you so much for sharing. I will definitely keep this in mind when I make my strawberry jam this Summer.ReplyCancel
