Thank you all for taking time out to visit with us all this week, we have seen a great amount of 'traffic' through our blogs this week and I am so delighted to read all of the very encouraging comments, Thank you!

Here are our new stamps for July!
Rescue Remedies


Rescue Remedies is a unique stamp concept, it's a set of 5 label sized stamps, plus accessories of course, that are designed for use when you want to give a little gift or 'pick me up' to a friend or co-worker, or really anyone.
These labels fit the second largest die from the Spellbinders 4 Label Dies. Co-ordinating with this set is a smaller sentiment based set, Rescue Remedies Additions

The labels have a vintage apothecary style about them but are equally at home on vintage or modern projects. The wording on each label has a certain Tongue-in-cheek humour, and they cover a huge variety of gifting, project or even just card making opportunities.
The labels measure around 2 inches wide by 3.25 inches tall at their widest points. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps

Rescue Remedies Additions


A companion set to Rescue Remedies this set is a smaller sentiment based set. 16 sentiments split between thank yous and various beverages that you might wish to gift to a friend or colleague. 1 little delicate scrollwork motif that matches some of the artwork in the Rescue Remedies main set.
Set in a vintage style, a fabulous wee set for use generally on cards, inside frames, on tags, endless possibilities. Use the motif for backgrounds, medallions, highlights.
The motif measure around 1 inch wide by 1.75 inches long. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.

Asian Gardens Additions

Designed as a companion set to Asian Gardens, this little 4x6 inch set has plenty of scope for use on its own. Auspicious clouds, raindrops, two styles of Lantern and a dinky wee bridge make up the images. There are also 9 sentiments, set in the same popular font as the Asian Gardens Sentiments. A total of 20 stamps squeezed into this little set.
The bridge measures just under 2.5 inches long by 0.75 inches high.The sentiment farewell is 1 and 1/8 inches long by just over 1/4 inch high. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.

Victorian Alphabet


The perfect Alphabet for all of your Vintage needs and it's not so overworked that it wouldn't sit well in a modern project either. Place cards, personalized cards and projects, that small sentiment that you just can't find are all waiting to be stamped, right here!
Ideal for use with any of our Vintage inspired sets, but co-ordinating with the Victorian Frippery set, these letters match the sentiments in that set perfectly. Plenty of punctuation for making price tags etc for your craft fair stall.
The capital letters measure around half an inch tall. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.

Victorian Frippery


The term 'Frippery' refers to unnecessary ornament! and this set just revels in fussy Victorian detail. Based on a vintage wallpaper design, the border stamp may be used on it's own as a lacy border or it may be stamped repeatedly to attain a fabulously detailed background! A largish medallion is a fab place to frame small sentiments, names or embellishments and the journalling card stamp may be cut out square or stamped into a die cut shape, - It matches one of the dies from the Spellbinders Labels 2 nestability die sets!!! Bliss!
Multitudinous opportunities abound for all sorts of decorative excess with the many little motifs and mini frames included in this set, AND sentiments too! I'm itching to make a card that says "Oh My"
Monograms are a cinch if you match this set up with the Victorian Alphabet set!
The medallion measures just over 2.5 inches wide, pergfect for that 3 inch punch or a Spellbinders Classic circle. The border stamp is just over an inch wide by a whopping 7.5 inches long. You know you're gonna need a longer block... All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.

Vintage Labels No.2

A set of versatile stamps designed to co-ordinate with the Spellbinders 2 Nestability dies! Suitable for all sorts of projects, featuring no less than 8 possible single frames and lots of options for combining frames to get more styles. Please note the two scrolls, the fleur-de-lis and the tiny cross inside the larger label shapes are separate stamps, they are laid out in this way to make it possible to squeeze even more stamps into the set.
See the blog post here for how to use those two corner stamps to make decorative corners or an entire frame.
The largest label measures just over 3 inches wide by 3.125 inches tall. All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2010 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.


Ordering info for the July release

I am offering free shipping for orders over £50 sterling in the store today and tomorrow AND Saturday! I have a decent quantity of stock for all the sets to hand and more stock is already ordered, as I was slightly worried about quantities when I had a larger number of queries than normal(!LOL!).

Obviously I am hoping to be able to fulfill all orders I receive over the three day shipping promo period, but just in case things do sell out I WILL be allowing the store to take back orders on stamp sets so that folks can still avail of the free shipping offer.

Orders including a sold out set will ship as soon as the set comes back in stock. This means that the entire order will be held until the full quota of items are available. If you are facing a deadline and need your available sets to ship immediately, do pop me an email and I will try to accommodate you! (claire.brennan1@ntlworld.com) This should not delay affected orders for more than a week as I have already ordered more stock due to the number of enquiries I have had.

I will of course email folks whose orders will be fulfilled in this way to let you know exactly what stage your order is at. I do hope this is ok, and if you have any queries do email me at: claire.brennan1@ntlworld.com but please note I might not respond immediately! LOL, i'm thinking I might be a wee bit busy...!

  5. Hi Claire,

    After all the sneak peeks, have to admit fell in love with the Rescue Remedies set...just love the old world feel of it and yet the modern side as well. Secretly, it's the old fashioned side of it that I love and would continue to use along with the Victorian Frippery. Oh I love all things Victorian, so you are really singing to me and calling me with these sets. And don't even get me started on the others but you know my two favourites! And by the way, I wouldn't object now to winning anything from you!!!!

    They were worth waiting for....
