The Big Cheese of the Week

Good morning!

Thanks to you, we have had another week of amazing and inspiring projects uploaded to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Gallery! Thank you for your continued participation!

I'm switching things up a little this week, and I'm going to share our Big Cheese winner's project first. I was really wowed by this simple, yet stunning, creation from JJ Bolton.

This doily image from Dainty Doilies 2 is so elegant, and JJ has used it to create a card that almost resembles a delicate stained glass window! I love the subtle and selective additions of color and the rhinestone accents. Fantastic job, JJ! Your card will be added to the Big Cheese highlight album in the WMS Gallery. Send me an email and we will provide you with a discount code for $10 off (the price of a small set!!) your next Waltzingmouse Stamps purchase.

Now a few other favorites from this week.

I love Lana's sugary sweet style, and this Christmas card is no exception.

Soft colors, some sparkle, and a perfectly placed doily just ooze shabby chic. I love the snowflakes stamped on the sheet music. I always forget about layering patterns, but this is a great example of how super it can look! Lana created this card for the WMS Christmas Card Challenge - have you been playing along? Lynn comes up with a fabulous new challenge each month to help you bulk up your stash of holiday cards!

And finally, a card after my own background-loving heart, this patchwork pretty from Pauline Pollington.

For starters, this is a great card layout to add to your inspiration notebooks - it has lots of possibilities! Pauline created instant coordination by stamping her own patterned paper, and the stitching and distressing really add a cozy patchwork quilt feel.

Outstanding job, ladies! Would you like the opportunity to be chosen for the Big Cheese? Add your direct links (please!) for your newly uploaded projects here in the WMS Forum, a new thread starts every Monday! You've been amazing girls - keep those projects coming!

Have a great day!
