WMS June Release and Design Team Blog Hop!

We've finally arrived at the big day!  Today all of the new Waltzingmouse Stamps the Design Team has been previewing for the past 3 days are available for purchase!  And we are having a Design Team Blog Hop to celebrate -  Be sure to leave a comment on each blog you visit for a chance to win a WMS stamp set - see details at the end of my post.

You should start the hop at Claire's blog (she will have the full list if you lose your way!)  If you came from Sandie's blog you are in the right place.

Did anyone else see a turkey wishbone when they looked at the cherry stem from the Big Berry - Cherry set???!!
I used the Mini Crackle Background Reverse stamp, the stem from Big Berry - Cherry and the sentiment is from an older set - Peace and Plenty.  I embossed a piece of Kraft Glassine Paper with the Thankful background folder from Tim Holtz for the background.
For my next card I again used the Mini Crackle Background Reverse stamp (LOVE this stamp!) along with a feather from Funky Feathers and a sentiment from a prior release - Words of Wisdom.
  I used this week's Cas(e) this Sketch for my card.
And for my last project -   here is a card I made using a special set called Charmed
Claire will be giving this set free to the first 50 people whose orders are over £60 GBP at  the store.  After the first 50 orders are reached -  the set will be available to purchase.  
See all the details on Claire's blog.
Look how the little black stamp over the holes on the buttons really looks like thread with the irregular edges!  The button is stamped, cut out, and layered over one of the patches with foam tape.
There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on all of the Design Team blogs. You will have until July 2nd at 11:59 pm  (GMT), 5:59 am Central (July 3), 3:59 am Pacific and 6:59 am Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted on Claire’s blog on July 4th.

Next on the hop is Laurie!
