Yuletide Blessings...WMSC27 44

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 11, 2010 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Thanks for all the Happy Birthday wishes for my hubby - he enjoyed reading all the sweet comments as much as I did :)

***Edited Noon EDT*** I have a little exciting news to share: in case you missed my shadowbox project full of Waltzingmouse and Melissa Frances goodness, please feel free to visit the Melissa Frances site where it is being featured today :) YIPEEEE

Today, it's time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
 This card features a combination of Waltzingmouse Stamps and various Melissa France's products. I inked up an image from Vintage Circles, Small then cut/embossed using a S4-243 Lacey Circle die template then adhered a Melissa Frances sticker that was cut using a S4-114 Standard Circle LG die template.
Using a S4-236 Classic Heart die template & some Martha Stewart glitter, I made a shimmery heart embellishment.
Shown in the photo below are the steps taken to make the stamped doily featured on this card. 
Step 1: Stamp image.
Step 2: Center Spellbinders™ die template over stamped image, place a few small pieces of
            tape around the edges of die template.
Step 3: Cut/emboss using die cut machine, blade side up.

Please visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for complete details. Thanks so much for looking! Have a great weekend :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Vintage Circles, Small, Compliments of the Season
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-243 Lacey Circles, S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S4-147 Classic Scalloped Heart, S4-236 Classic Heart, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances Home for the Holidays & Vintage stickers Christmas
