Waltzingmouse New Release DT Blog Waltz - Say It Loud!!!

Yippee!  It's finally here!  the day all 5 new Waltzingmouse Sets are released!  And to celebrate - the WMS Design Team is having a blog Waltz featuring the 5th set -  Say it Loud!   A wonderful sentiment set with BIG words and little words and phrases for you to mix and match.  Something for every kind of occasion!

You should start today's waltz at Claire's Blog.  She also has the complete waltz list posted should you get lost along the way.

If you came here from Kate's blog, you are in the right place!

And here's my card - Isn't this fun!  A card celebrating a new puppy (or two!)   You could also send it to a dog lover that just had a human baby too!  They'd probably get a kick out of it!  Just click on any pic to see it larger.

I was inspired to make this card by this sweet piece of DP from Websters Pages.  I stamped the big word 'baby' and die cut it with a Petite Ovals Nestability, sponged the edges and adhered it with foam tape over my die cut Fancy Tags 2.  Then I stamped the little words phrase 'a bonny new' on a scrap of white, rounded one end, sponged the edges and adhered it over the oval.  This card measures 3 x 5 1/2 so it fits in a regular A2 envelope for mailing.

For my 2nd card I used a stamp from Gingham + Co.,  Join Us (laurel wreath) and Dainty Doiles Large (sentiment).

And my final project for the new release is a tag using Dainty Doilies Large and Dainty Doilies - 2 - Small.
Here's a close up showing the ghosting technique I used yesterday.  You can see that post with a link to this technique here.



And look!!! There will be a prize of a WMS stamp set of choice from a random drawing from the comments left on one of the Design Team's blogs today.  So be sure to leave a comment as you waltz along! You have until 11:59 pm EST on May 2nd to post your comments. (10:59 pm Central, 8:59 pm Pacific)

The winner will be posted on Clair’s blog on the 3rd of the May so be sure to check back there!

Don't forget to take your wish list over to the WMS shop to order your favorite stamp sets!

Jeanne Jachna said...

Julia,
I'm partial to puppies too. Your comments were funny because walking my "puppy" today we ran accross a baby crawling on the grass. My dog didn't know what to make of it - I wish I could have explained it was a small human - I think she thought it was some sort of strange dog. My favorite card you featured was the classic black and white. I love the clean lines. Simply elegant!

Diane Jaquay said...

These are all very pretty, but I particularly LOVE the middle card, so elegant with the embossing and black and white color scheme!!

Tosha Leyendekker said...

Wow Julia!! All three projects are super fabulous!! Love how you framed the "bonnie" baby. And I love the topper and colors of the second. Finally, your tag is so fun and fabulous with those beautiful colors!! Awesome!!

Hi Julia

I like all of your cards, they look all great. The dog with the crown on its head is very funny, the second with the embossed and stamped parts is very elegant (and it is my favourite) and the tag with the doilies looks very beautiful, too, especially in this technique and colours.

Kind regards
Carola

I love that sentiment. With sentiments that big, I can actually design a card around the sentiment rather than adding one as an afterthought or just going generic.
