WMS - Let's Get Together

How's your weekend going?  I hope it's a sunny productive weekend!  Today I made this card using the Waltzing Mouse Stamps Dinky Doughnuts and We Go Together.

I also used the die from We Go Together for the coffee cup and sequins from Old Gold Shaker Mix.

Have a lovely day!

Hello Everyone! It's Unity Happy Hour starting right now!! Get ready a cup of coffee or tea and come hop with us.  This week we have a new {Be Inspired} challenge and a couple of new releases.

Look at the colour challenge - I LOVE the colour combo!!  But, I'm not sharing my card yet with that colour combo - it's coming up on Saturday on the Unity blog ;)

Lots of cards to share today starting with the new Sentiment Kit

I also used this set by Angie Blom - Prayer Changes Everything.

And, lastly two cards from the Awesome new KOTM - Life is Change

I have so enjoyed creating the cards for this Happy Hour Hop.  Hope you like them :)

WMS - Kaboom! More than Coffee!!

Hello!  Today I have another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project to share.  This project uses the recent release We Go Together and dies We go Together, Kaboom, Snowflake One and Stitched Tags.

Quite a number of dies, right?  I love mixing dies with stamps a lot on my cards, and my friends think I'm mad for having hundreds of dies.  I guess this card justifies the dies purchase, yes?

Are you into Planners?  There's a new release of WMS Planner Basics this week!!  Check it out here.

Thanks for visiting me.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Unity Tuesday Hop {11 August 2015}

Hello Friends!  We are shaking things up today in the Unity team hop - so glad you are here!  It's going to be so very exciting with Awesome releases and a release chat.  It's a bummer that the chart starts at the same time I start work - it's now Wednesday morning over here in Australia.  I'm sure you ladies will have a great time and I'll catch up with the chats during my lunch hour :)

Here's my cards using the new set Loving Today!  I think this is my favourite set of the  release.  It's a great set to use with the Misti tool so that the sentiments fit in the frames perfectly.  I love that it is rustic with a great set of sentiments.

My next project uses the new Susan Weckesser's new set - with this set you can create a scene using the flowers, stems, leaves, etc.  Love it!

Here are the cutest little boy and girl stamp sets from the release last week...

Lastly, here is the latest wonderful Angie girl

Wow, this is a long post - I hope you are loving the new stamps!

Thank you for visiting me.  Have a fabulous day and Happy shopping!! {hugs}

WMS - Shaker Card

Today I have another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project to share.  It's always fun to receive a shaker card, though I must admit there's so much fun making them too.

Lately I have been playing with foil and my new minc machine, as a result I am addicted to adding foil on every card I make :) LOL!  I discovered that when you heat emboss sentiments and do not reduce the heat on the Minc machine when adding foil, the embossing powder melts and spreads out. But, if you ink up your stamp once more with Stazon ink or any alcohol based ink and stamp above the foil sentiment, you get a pretty cool efffect.

The sentiment is from the set Your Sparkle and I think it goes so well with the shaker card - for the shaker fill, I used the Peaches and Dream Shaker Mix.  I used the die set Funky Flowsrs to cut the felt flowers and assembled them with a brad.

Thanks for visiting me.  Have a wonderful day!!

WMS Guest Designer - Coffee and Doughnuts

Hello Everyone! I am so very, very excited to be invited as a Guest Designer for Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  Over the next four weeks, I'll be sharing some projects on my blog using their latest release.  I discovered Waltzing Mouse in 2010 and fell in love with their elegant and fun stamps.  Claire, the owner is such a lovely lady and I feel so very honoured.  I hope to do her proud.

Today, I'm using this really cute Doughnut and Coffee set and it has a matching die set too.

Here's my card:
and a little close up view...

The stamped images are coloured with Copic markers.  I hope you like the card.

Thank you for visiting me, and please visit again next week for the another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project.
