WMS Sneak Peek Day #2 - Yuletide Blessings & Fancy a Cuppa?

Welcome dear friends to the 2nd day of Sneak Peeks of the Waltzingmouse October Release. Just 2 more days until you can order these for your very own!


Today I made a card and gift container set using Compliments of the Season and Holiday Labels No. 14 (yes - they fit in Labels 14 Nestabilities!)

For the images on the label on my little container I also used two older sets - Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments. (that's a clue as to what I put inside! LOL!!)

I used Taylored Expression's sketch for my Yuletide card. The sentiment and snowflake stamp are from Compliments of the Season and the cool label stamp is from Holiday Labels No. 14. I don't have the Labels 14 Nestabilities (yet!) - but it was easy peasy to cut around the edges by hand.

Here's how my container started out - as a simple Betty Crocker Icing tub!

Since the top was red I really had to get it covered as red didn't go with my color scheme! I used some twill along the side edge and I attached this lace over the edge of the top, folding it down over the side and covering the top with a circle of designer paper. Then I just adhered a strip of the same paper around the base of the container.

I used the same label stamp I used on my card for the front of the container. The 'fancy a cuppa? sentiment is from the new release Frame It (I used this set for yesterday's sneak peek if you recall!?! or you can just scroll down and see it!)

I used petite oval Nestabilities to cut out the sentiment (Afternoon Tea Sentiments) I used on the cover here.
I tied the wrinkled seam binding around in the back - sort of like an apron (!)

So that's it! sorry I took so long today!

Now you'll want to check out the rest of the DT's peeks:
