Happy weekend!! For those of you eager to see the winner of the clear cases (or alternative international gift) the winner is listed at the end of my post. On a regular note, welcome back to day three of Waltzingmouse Stamps September 2014 Release previews. The Waltzingmouse Stamps set we’re showing today is Warm Fuzzies and I have a red and cream card using the sweet sentiments from the set. Please don’t ask what’s going on with me and red or me and gold because I simply can’t explain it :-) I think part of the allure is that I finally figured out how to photograph them without them looking crazy. Red is so bright and I normally like muted tones but I hope you’ll indulge me through this phase.
I created a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card with the main focal part being Spellbinders Oval Bliss. Two ovals are used and I offset one so that you could see the red through the cream openings – I love that look! On top of the two offset ovals I created an oval frame using Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG #5 and Spellbinders Grand Ovals #1 – it just adds so much dimension to the card. I stamped one of the sentiments in red and embossed with clear embossing powder and the second sentiment I stamped and embossed on a strip of paper, folded and cut the pennant ends by hand. Lastly the sweet snowflakes (I know, red?) were Waltzingmouse SVG files (available this month with each set). I stamped and clear embossed them and strung them on a piece of twine to hang over the pennant.

Congrata to the winner! Love this card – especially that oval – divine – I have this set on pre-order but they are not released over here (UK) for a bit so I’ll have to be patient – I’ll be trying a variant of this card though when they arrive – love it.
Hi Becca. I love the card, the dies are lovely, the sentiment is wonderful and the red/white combo is one of my favourites s I for one am delighted to see as much as you want to show us : )
Congratulations Debbie, enjoy organising your dies and stamps in the cases :)
Have a good day everyone.Take care.
Red is amazing, so using red on ANY card is OK by me, but on Christmas cards…well it’s just a ‘must do’! I reckon this beautiful card kind of proves my point really. LOL xxxx
Lovely card Becca. Can I ask what width ribbon you have used?
I do like a basic white and red colour for Christmas cards and the sentiment is really fun.
Indulge away, Becca. This is a lovely card and I adore red and cream together. As always, you have given us a beautiful card.
A masterpiece yet again! gorgeous Becca.
