Big Cheese of the Week

Hello and happy Wednesday - it's Lynn here, filling in for Anya, who is on a much needed and well-deserved vacation with her family.  We couldn't let a week go by though without recognizing our BIG CHEESE for the week of September 26 through October 2.  The Big Cheese program has been up and running for four months now, and if you haven't been participating, you may start today.  The gorgeous submissions that have been added provides so mach inspiration to all who view the Waltzingmouse Stamps Gallery.  Thanks for participating..

To be perfectly honest, I don't know how it's possible to select only one BIG CHEESE winner each week because the caliber of projects in the gallery are TOP SHELF.  But even with the incredible number of amazing creations submitted this past week, I must select one, so may I introduce this week's Big Cheese?

This great CAS card from Tara Cardwell (also known as Craftilicious on the WMS forum) really caught my eye; not only for its simple and clean lines, but for the wonderful dimension that Tara achieved with her house from the A Cottage Christmas set.  The sparkle of snow covered rooftop and window sills is just darling, and a card that would be fairly easy to replicate for multiple copies.

Tara, your card will be added to the Big Cheese highlight album in the WMS Gallery. Please send me an email and I will provide you with a discount code for $10 off (the price of a small set!!) your next Waltzingmouse Stamps purchase. 

Kary Lim  shared this fabulous round card using the You're Lovely set. The way that Kary stamped her image on the patterned paper, but made is stand out by adding more saturated color to the dress along with the outline making it really pop from the same background paper.

I'm loving all the round cards that were added to the gallery this week!  

And last, but not lease is this special project  from Pauline Pollington that would brighten the wall or shelf of any home.

Pauline created an adorable shadow box that uses a background image from Dainty Doilies, a happy little banner from Bitty Banners that spell out the name of the recipient using the Victorian Alphabet set.

Thank you ladies for your contributions this week. Would YOU like the opportunity to be chosen for the Big Cheese? Add your direct links (please!) for your newly uploaded projects to the Waltzingmouse Stamps gallery, here in the WMS Forum. A new thread starts every Monday!

Until next time, have a great day!


  1. Congrats to The Big Cheese, such a gorgeous Xmas card, and thank you for highlighting my frame too, a lot of love went into that for a special little girl. Kary's card is a well deserved pick, the colours on her card are fabulous, it made me gasp when I first saw it! I don't envy you the job of choosing the Big Cheese at all! Well done all! Xxx

  2. OMG - I can't believe I'm the big cheese - wish you could see the HUGE smile I have on my face right now :-D
    Thanks for making my day :-) :-) :-)
