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.

    Good morning Becca,
    what a happy wee elf we are today, so bright and cheery. Your card reminds me of a man’s stripey shirt with buttons down the front and a cumberband around the waist. So the topper on your card showing little Santa elf is his id badge for him to get into the posh function that he is wearing is evening shirt and cumberband for dinner. Lovely Becca, lovely,
    Crafty hugs

    Becca I think your work is truly amazing and you are an extremely talented artist. I love all of your things that you make. I would be in heaven if I had even a portion of the supplies you have. Living on a limited income makes it difficult to buy the things that I crave. I need to win the lottery………lol. It would be wonderful to see you do some videos.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    I love all the cards that you make, but don’t always leave a comment. These stamps and dies are gorgeous. I do hope we can get them in the UK. Especially the Pretty Panels 1 & 2.
