May WMS Blog Waltz 121

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, May 1, 2011 @ 11:00 AM | , ,

***I have two posts today ~ if you are looking for my CR84FN26 post, please either continue to scroll down, or click HERE :) Thank You***

Hi There! I hope you are as excited about this month's Waltzingmouse Stamps Release as I am?! Claire will be accepting orders TODAY for all FIVE sets: Gingham & Co., Join Us, Dainty Doilies-2 Small, Dainty-Doilies Large and Say it Loud. If you arrived here from Belinda's blog, then you are right where you should be! If not, please hop back over to Claire's blog where the celebration began!

A few minor details: As with all of Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team Blog Waltzes, you have the opportunity to win a stamp set of your choice. There will be a prize (a stamp set of choice) via a random drawing from one of the Design Team Members blog. You will have until 11:59 pm Eastern  May 2nd to leave your comments. The winner will be posted on Claire's blog on May 3rd. Good Luck!

Today, we are introducing the Say it Loud ~ the fifth set being released this month! I LOVE the larger sized elegant font that Claire used to design several stamps in this set and the plethora of smaller images. This set contains a variety of MANY sentiments both large and small that can be easily mixed and matched.

I have a set of cards to share featuring Say it Loud and Dainty-Doilies Large:
As you see, ALL three of the following cards are basically the same, just changed up the color combos and each showcase different sentiments.

First up ~ a Birthday card:
I stamped the larger doily image from Dainty-Doilies Large then using a Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Circles LG die template to cut/emboss the doily. To make the little tag, I stamped the "wishes" sentiment then using a die template from Spellbinders™Nested Lacey Pennants to cut/emboss the image.
Next, a Thank You card:
Love the "a bunch" sentiment:
Lastly, a warm and fuzzy sort of card :)
So fun to mix the "hugs and kisses" sentiments!
Shown in the photo below, you can see how beautifully the Dainty Doilies Large image coordinates with a Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Circles LG die template:
That's all I have to share, to continue with the Waltz, please visit Jennifer's blog to see what she has to share with you! Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Dainty Doilies Large, Say it Loud
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Big Scalloped Circles LG, Fleur de Lis Doily Accents, Nested Lacey Pennants, Grand Calibur
Other: Sizzix foliage die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Quickutz embossing folder

I love that sentiment. With sentiments that big, I can actually design a card around the sentiment rather than adding one as an afterthought or just going generic.

lynn said...

i love how you've done your sentiment with the stripes and masking, but my, the cards are just stunning, mona!

Suzanne C said...

Fabulous series of cards. Stunning as always!

Stella said...

This is one your amazing talents. The same stamp set and three different cards. It all sounds so easy :). And this dork :) who is writing this comment would never have thought of using a stamp set this way.
This set is gorgeous; I love all three of them.
And I think that the board of directors at Hallmark are getting nightmares. You are an amazing stamper and such an inspiration. Their sales will go down :) They don't sell beauties like these!


Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
