Because I was so thrilled to read all of the lovely comments! I'm encouraging folks to continue to comment. I will pick ANOTHER winner tomorrow night! so, all you folks who commented today are in with another chance to win a set of your choice!! I appreciate that folks have been leaving one comment each, this is by far the fairest way, thank you all!

Hello and welcome to the release of 3 new stamp sets!!!

Important notice for Vintage label 4 waiting list folks!! - if you have not already placed your order for your reserved set, and would like to do so, now that the release is open, simply proceed as advised in the email. I am holding your sets unless you email me to say it is not needed, and please do let me know soon as there are some folks hoping! Many thanks.
The stamps are top quality, clear photopolymer, self sticking stamps for use on clear acrylic blocks (not supplied). Supplied on clear plastic with matching printed image sheet, all in a polybag.

Two of the sets you can see below, the other you must find by going back to the two posts immediately before this one!!! It's a secret set!!!Hurry! there's a competition on, it ends at midnight, you need to read the posts to see how to enter!! lol

Very Vintage Labels No.1 (Nestie Friendly)

Along the lines of the popular Vintage Labels No.4, this set co-ordinates with the Spellbinders label 1 dies. AAhh. Perfectly framed panels of loveliness!!

The top left hand image shows 4 concentric dotted shapes, this is one stamp but each border is easily inked up individually or in pairs to give a neat border for your die cut shape. See my blog for more on this.
I have designed this stamp to contain 4 different sized frames as a space saving alternative to 4 separate frame stamps. Also the fact that the 4 frames are together gives the stamp added stability and durability. I find the little dew drop inks very good for inking the borders separately, tho it is just as easy to wipe away any unwanted ink before stamping.
In the top right, you can see another double frame stamp, either ink up both or a single border depending on your project. The frame on bottom right is a separate stamp from the 'tag shoulder' within it.
A selection of ‘tag shoulders’ and ornaments compliments the set. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2009 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.
Sewing Box - Hugs

After the style of Sewing Box Christmas, the Hugs set features images and sentiments suitable for every day usage. The stitch outline of these images makes them eminently suitable for those ‘good feeling’ warm wishes cards with a homespun feel. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2009 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.
But you know what? I'm itching to make Christmas cards with em!! lol
To purchase either of these two stamp sets or indeed the Secret stamp set pop over to the store:

AND, can I just thank all my DT ladies!!! I am loving seeing what you all come up with and hope to be organised better in the new year so's you can ALL get the stuff in time for releases!! lol, a couple of my ladies didn't get their sets in time for this release, it was a tight squeeze. Hat's off to Julia, Anya and Laurie who managed to get samples made!! BTW pop over to Julia's I believe she's had an early Christmas visit!!!
