Happy 2nd Birthday Waltzingmouse Stamps! 42

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 9:00 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you all are having a great weekend! Here today to wish Claire, Owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps, a Happy 2nd Birthday in honor and celebration of her awesome stamp company! If you have visited me before, you may have noticed how much I LOVE Claire's designs! I was a customer of Waltzingmouse Stamps prior to becoming a Design Team member so you can imagine how excited, thrilled and honored I was when Claire first asked me to join her DT over a year ago! If you have a free moment and would like to leave Claire some birthday love, please feel free to visit her blog click HERE.  I am sure Claire would be tickled pink to hear from you! :)

Claire has unfortunately experienced some shipping issues recently. Being located in Ireland, it takes a bit longer than what many of us stampers want to wait, but believe me the stamps are worth the wait! It made me sad to read some downright rude and mean comments on Claire's blog regarding this matter. Claire can work magic with her designs but I really don't think she has control over Ireland's Royal Mail? Waltzingmouse Stamps are unique, timeless designs that are not going to lose their luster so to say and I am SURE you will agree they are worth the wait :)
To create the lil' die cut cupcake, I stamped the reverse polka dot image and a plaid image from Gingham & Co. then using a Sizzix die template to cut the cupcake shape then adhered glitter to the top to give it a shimmery sugary appearance. Once I had the cupcake made, I adhered it to a beautiful label made by stamping an image from Very Vintage Labels No. 1 that was cut/embossed using a Spellbinders™ Labels One die template that coordinates perfectly! To make the tag, I stamped the birthday wishes sentiment from Asian Gardens then used a Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image.
Thanks so much for visiting today :) Hope you enjoy the rest of your day! I will be back tomorrow with a new CR84FN Color Challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 1, Gingham & Co., Asian Gardens
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Labels One, Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals LG, Grand Calibur, Sizzix cupcake 
Patterned Paper: The Girl's Paperie

I suppose people should realize when they order something from overseas that there will be a delay in the mail time. That is horrible people are saying rude things to Claire. I love WM stamps and have ordered and waited. Others need to wait too! ;)

Your card is so sweet. Love the sugared icing on your cupcake and the WM frame is perfect. I especially love the Girls' paper you used too. :)

Hope you are haivng loads of fun. Can't wait to see more pics.

Hug~
