Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Blog Waltz


Hi there! Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Blog Waltz! Did you just come from Jen's blog? If you did, you're right where you should be! If not, head on over to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog and start at the beginning! 

I made two sets for the Blog Waltz today, so grab a drink and let's go through them together! My first set is made with the Fine Feathers stamp set. It's my favorite one this in this release. I really enjoyed using it. 

This was my inspiration for my first project.


I stamped four different feather images. Three onto cream cardstock, which I fussy cut. It is absolutely worth the effort of fussy cutting! I used HA Soft Pool, Fresh Peach, Cup O' Joe, Soft Sand and Soft Granite.


I have been seeing feathers used for gift packaging over at Pinterest and I wanted to make my own. This set is absolutely perfect for it!!!


Now onto my  next set. Like I said on Day 1 of the WMS July Release, I found out that there are Russian Doll themed parties. I thought they were absolutely adorable! So I made a little after party Thank You set using You're a Doll.

 Here's a Thank You card for the set.

 And here's a gift baggie. I made this gift bag myself using drawing paper from Ikea. You know those rolls of drawing paper for kids? They're perfect for making gift baggies that you want to decorate yourself! I did this for Christmas last year and people asked me where I bought them! I said I made them myself and they were startled because they thought that it was store bought! :)


Well, that's it for me! If you're all done here, you can head on over to Karin's blog for more inspiration. Don't forget to leave a comment on every blog you hop onto. Claire is picking out a random winner to win a stamp set of your choice! You have until July 2nd at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central (July 3), 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. Good luck! And thanks for stopping by today!

I dad is over 75% and it is apart of me that I adore. Every time I see it I am almost in a trance by its beauty. You really ROCKED this out. I am so inspired and really want this stamp set now. By the way. The stick shape with those feathers. That is the really important key. It is the topping on the cake. I am pinning and so borrowing your idea's.
