July WMS Blog Waltz 78

***I have two posts today, if you are looking for my CR84FN post, please click HERE***

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release waltz! Many thanks for the sweet comments over the past 3 days :) Today, all four of the following sets: Heroines - Fairy Princess, My Island, North Shore and Playful Pinwheels are now available for purchase in the Waltzingmouse Stamps on line store. You should have arrived from Belinda's blog, if not you can head on over to Claire's blog where the celebration began and for complete details.

Today, we are all focusing on the fun Playful Pinwheels stamp set, which includes LOTS of fun pinwheels and sentiments to play with!

To create the pinwheel, I did a wee bit of paper piecing which was super duper easy! I first stamped the larger pinwheel outline image twice then filled in the larger polka dot and solid pieces with the coordinating stamps. I cut the smaller inside pinwheel then popped it on with a glue dot. It's perched inside a teeny jar from a retired Spellbinders die set that I just can't part with! After die cutting the jar, I colored the lid with Copics and pieced on top of the jar that was stamped using the reverse polka dot stamp from Gingham & Co.
Thanks so much for visiting! To continue with the waltz, please be sure to visit Bonnie's blog. Be Sweet :)
