June 2012 Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party Highlights

Hello all.  I hope you enjoyed our most recent blog party. It seems that many of you were excited by our inspiration photo.  It was thrilling to see the creativity of so many Waltzingmouse Stamps fans posting their own special inspiring projects.  You can still take a gander at all the fantastic project which can be found here.

Each month it gets more difficult to select only three wonderful projects to highlight, but I'll give it a shot.

Jeanne J did a stunning job of creating lots of dimension in her dress from the You're Lovely  set along with a base layer using the Very Vintage Labels 25.  She stamped the dress multiple times, paper piecing the layers upon one another to create the realistic dimension.  Her orange flowers atop the multi-loop bow is a stunning embellishment.

Suzanne Dahlberg created a tree using multiple colors of ink, bringing this tree to life.  With her dry embossed backgrounds and a sentiment that extends past the card sides, she has created even more interest on this beautiful card. The pops of orange are great touches which tie in all the colors in the tree leaves.


Nikki Woodward created a lovely simulated hallway using images from the Paris Nouveau  stamp set to create her wallpaper and surrounding frame for her sentiment.  Her wainscoting is such a creative idea highlighted with a bit of distressing to help the panels stand out more. As you can see, Nikki’s inspiration came from the wainscoting in inspiration photo AND Waltzingmouse Stamps images. 

We think everyone who participated in the blog party is a winner, but only one player can win the free set that WMS is giving away today.  We used to select our winner this month.  Congratulations goes to:

Marlene M

Congratulations Marlene.  Please send Claire an e-mail at with your stamp set selection, and mailing address details.  We appreciate EVERYONE’S participation and support of the “Blog Party”. 

It was great fun seeing your very creative projects.  Thanks to everyone who participated.
