Waltzingmouse Stamps – September 2014 – Preview Day 3 and Case Winner

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Stamps Warm Fuzzies and Spellbinders Oval Bliss - www.amazingpapergrace.com
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.
Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Stamps Warm Fuzzies and Spellbinders Oval Bliss - www.amazingpapergrace.com
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.ReplyCancel

    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 xxxxReplyCancel

  • CraftysusanSeptember 28, 2014 - 4:57 am

    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.ReplyCancel
