...December 09 Release!!! New stamps!

OOOh! OOH nearly forgot!!! Since it's Christmas and all, I had the daft notion that I will pick one lucky shopper from the weekends release purchases to win their entire shopping cart load free!!! - What this means is that orders placed this weekend will go into a random draw and one person will receive a refund of the value of their shopping cart!!! WWWOOOHHHOOOO as they say somewhere else - Every little helps!!! The draw will be made on Monday/Tuesday using names of purchasers up until that point!! Happy holidays to y'all! Leave a comment if you think this is a good idea, to help me decide whether to do it again!!lol!

Hello and welcome to the December Release. I have 2 new stamp sets for you!

Please be aware that although Royal Mail gives last posting dates for Christmas as the 10th December for overseas folks. There is the chance that these may not be with you in time for Christmas. Getting orders out ASAP is always my priority but unfortunately I don't have any say in postage speed once they leave me, so be aware that you might not get these before Christmas.

Congratulations to: Petr@ who said:
They sure tickle!! I love the fact that your sets coordinate with the nesties.
When I was a child I used to have a lot of little boxes to store all my little 'treasures'. I still have some of those, they are the gateway to good memories.
I've left a comment on your blog! You win both sets! Pop me your addy in an email!
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.

Very Vintage Labels No.5 (Nestie Friendly)

The bottom left is a frame stamp with a separate stamp contained within, they are laid out like this to save space. The bottom middle image is the same, the circular motif is a separate stamp, it just sits within the frame to save space.

Along the lines of the popular Vintage Labels No.4, this set co-ordinates with the Spellbinders label 5 dies. I guess you've noticed I'm addicted to these!

The top left hand image shows 3 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 here for more on this.
I have designed this stamp to contain 3 different sized frames as a space saving alternative to 3 separate frame stamps. Also the fact that the3 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.
A ‘tag shoulder’ and ornaments compliments the set. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2009 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.
Little Box Labels (Nestie Friendly) - concept by Joan Bardee!

There I was, drawing frames for the Labels 5 dies when along came Joan and said - "Boxes, everybody likes boxes for their stuff!" It was the lightbulb moment LOL! and so credit for the idea behind this set has to go to Joan Bardee, my US Cultural Ambassador! lol.
A cracking stamp set for folks who like to make little boxes! I was so taken with the shape of the Spellbinders Labels 5 dies that I continued the theme into this second stamp set.
Designed to make easy labels for things like gift boxes, recipe boxes, Notepads, Diaries, stationery boxes...the list goes on.

A versatile label design stamp, designed to fit the Spellbinders Labels 5 dies. The die is not required for use of this set though as this label shape is very easy to cut out.

4 detailed motifs including a heart lock and key, star/snowflake and a jug with kitchen utensils, all of which co-ordinate with the 19 sentiments supplied should cover most of your 'boxing' needs! lol.

Rounded off with a super sized herringbone border stamp which I just know is going to finish off all those MAN cards rather nicely too! LOL. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2009 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan. Brain thought inspiration Copyright © 2009 Joan Bardee.

  1. Oh my, Claire! Every month I seem to say these are your best yet, and you will never be able to top it. And every month I'm wrong...I love that! :)

  2. Both sets are wonderful Claire! I think this might be the most elegant Labels set yet! I wish you LOTS of sales... especially with that amazing offer of an entirely free order to one lucky person. What a great idea!

  3. Of course this is a GREAT idea!!! I've just placed my 1st order with Waltzingmouse Stamps...I've been eyeing your stamps for awhile & your drawing pushed me to finally place an order! I look forward to placing more orders with you in the future! Can't wait to get my new stamps!

  4. Oh my; oh my!!! Couldn't sleep, so I popped onto my blog & saw you'd updated yours -- these stamp sets are SOOOOO awesome Claire & WOW is that mind of yours ever clever?!!! I truly wish I could order this weekend, but I know one lucky lady who does will truly be blessed & beyond thrilled!!! Yes, that's a most ingeniously AWESOME idea. I do have a friend who's also very interested in your stamps sets -- wait 'til she sees these! If I didn't have 4 kids w/bdays in Dec./Jan. + his 2 grands to buy for, I'd be ordering RIGHT NOW. My friend has 22 grandchildren between their 5 children, so maybe early next year we can place a joint order! I know you'll sell these out quickly!

  5. That's quite a contest Claire and very generous of you!!! Your new sets are just beautiful. Well done!

  6. Claire, Just so you know, I had to have the "Little Box Labels" set.
    I love little boxes, little tins, little baskets--no matter if there is anything to put in them, I love 'em. Of course I also needed to pick up a couple of other sets, as well, but we won't tell anyone, now will we? ;-)

  7. These are both beautiful Claire... I know have to get at least one! But I may need to wait until after Christmas.

  8. Just got my first order from you a couple of weeks I'm ready for these beauties! Aaah, love the "bits 'n bobs" stamp Ü

  9. Whoo Hooo!!! the new stamps are up!!! I am so loving the Little Box Labels set Claire!!

  10. Wow, two more awesome sets from one of the most talented ladies I know in the papercrafting industry. Claire, you never cease to amaze me. These new stamps are awesome.

  11. Love the new sets! You have been working hard to get all this done and with kids, too! God Bless you and your family. Have a Merry Christmas.

  12. How good are these? Thanks so much!

  13. I am putting these two new sets on my wish list. It's too late for Christmas, but my bday is in January. So I may get lucky and have something Irish wrapped in pretty paper for my birthday! woohoo
    I just figured that Joan was paperlicious so happy you two "collaborated" on the 'boxes'.

  14. A great idea to be sure. I made sure to nudge DH that such a contest was going on and hopefully he made a purchase over the weekend. Of course he wouldn't tell me if he did or not. ;) But I sure hope you get an order from my DH cause there's lots of sets on my Christmas list. Love them all!

  15. Oh, wow! Very cool, Claire! And hat's off to Joan for the concept for that set! YAY!


Thanks for taking the time to comment, :) I read them all and I appreciate you taking time to visit!
