Waltzingmouse Stamps DT Blog Waltz


Hey there! You made it to the last day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May 2013 Release! Welcome to the DT Blog Waltz!!! If you just came from Jen's blog then you're in the right place. If you're lost you can head on over to Waltzingmouse Stamps blog to check out the complete list of the DT Blog Waltz. Let's get started!

For my first card, I used USA 1776 to make a July 4th card. I made a big frame for my background card panel using a small frame from the set. I used masking to do this. Then I sprinkled more stars throughout the upper portion of the panel.

I made some banners using the star builder images from the same set. Then I attached some twine over it. I also stamped and hand cut the eagle and adhered it over the banners.


For my second card, I made another July 4th card. Only this time, I wanted to make something that didn't have the traditional colors. This would probably be great to give to a teenage lady. :)

I just stamped the firecracker image several times. Some straight onto the cardstock and the rest I hand cut and attached with foam tape.




That's it for me! I hope you enjoyed these past few days! I loved working with these stamp sets. If you're all done here you can head on over to Karin's blog. Make sure to leave comments as you go. Claire is giving away a stamp set of choice to a lucky random winner! Thanks for stopping by today! :)
