WM September Friends Waltz & Day #2 previews 83

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 17, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the Day #2 of the September Waltzingmouse Stamps previews and Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! Although we are previewing Say it Loud Autumn/Winter , this month's Waltz the theme is Halloween so I also incorporated several images from Hocus Pocus which is will be shared tomorrow as well by many of the DT Members. You can find all the Waltz details in the Playroom of the WMS Forum click HERE.
First up is a card, featuring a HAPPY Halloween sentiment from Say it Loud Autumn/Winter and a fun batty wreath of sorts from Hocus Pocus: 
Lovin' the gorgeous sentiments included in Say it Loud Autumn/Winter! Full of so many that may be easily mixed and matched! Up close you can see all the fancy detail in the batty wreath:
One of the MANY things I LOVE about Claire's stamps is the ability to easily mix and match the stamp sets. To create my Painters Tray project featuring Connor and Meredith all dressed up for Halloween years ago, I combined stamps from Hocus Pocus with images from previously released Bitty BannersHalloween Party and Wanda's Pantry while using many Spellbinders die templates and spooky patterned paper from the new Pink Paislee Phantom Collection:
I can't get enough of the beautiful "Vintagey" detail in the Hocus Pocus image from the NEW Hocus Pocus:
I combined the Happy Haunting sentiment from Hocus Pocus with a lil' banner from Bitty Banners:
Love the solid witch image and be Witched sentiment from Hocus Pocus
Such a fun batty wreath from Hocus Pocus combined with the lil' SPOOKY sentiment from Halloween Party:
Can't go wrong with a BOO! here and there (from Midnight Feast :)
Or a trick or treat (from Midnight Feast):
I fancied the HORRIBLY HAPPY HALLOWEEN sentiment (from Midnight Feast) on a petite sized BINGO card:
and last but not least, how about some of WANDA'S WITCH'S BREW directly from Wanda's Pantry?
