WMS September Waltz 118

Mona Pendleton | Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 11:00 AM | , ,

Hello dear blogging friends! I sure hope I have sparked your interest in getting crafty and creating a treasured keepsake for yourself or that special someone. Today, the following Waltzingmouse Stamps: Hocus Pocus, A Cottage Home, Say it Loud Autumn/Winter and A Cottage Christmas may be purchased today ~ click HERE. Today, Claire, WM DT members and myself will be sharing projects using the NEW A Cottage Christmas. 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.
First up is a card I made featuring a sweet sentiment from A Cottage Christmas:
One of the MANY things I LOVE about Claire's stamps is how so many coordinate with Spellbinders die templates. Not sure if Claire had the Spellbinders Labels Twelve die template in hand or mind when designing this set but it sure makes a perfect frame showcasing that gorgeous sentiment!
Next, is a little tag featuring yet another beautiful sentiment:
I dug through my stash of Quikutz dies from years ago and found the darling house die so I upcycled a piece of cardboard making a fun little embellishment. I brushed on some Claudine Hellmuth Studio One Canvas paint for a little white washed effect.
Thanks so much for visiting today! To continue on with the Waltz, please visit Sarah's blog to see what she has to share with you! Be Sweet :) 
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse A Cottage Christmas
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Labels Twelve, 2010 Holiday Trees, Grand Calibur, Quikutz house
Patterned Paper: Authentique
Other: SU border punch, Making Memories ribbon, PTI cs, Claudine Hellmuth Canvas White paint
