Waltzingmouse March Release Blog Waltz

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Today the Waltzingmouse Design Team is having a Blog Waltz to celebrate the new March releases hitting the store!  If you are following along with the blog hop and you came from Edna's blog then you are right on track.  If you are catching me in the middle and would like to start at the beginning of the blog waltz it starts here at Waltzingmouse Makes blog.  

I made two cards to share with you today - the first was made with the Folk Art Medallion set.  That close up shows you exactly how many stamps and colors you can use to make the center of the medallion - that's 4!  The center is also available as a single stamp if you don't want to build your own.  I love that you can change the look of the medallion simply by changing colors.  This one with all the rich red and orange reminds me of fall.

This second card I made with the Good Egg set and the Waltzingmouse cut files.  Check out all the detail on the lattice cut ones, and the zig zag or scallop edges.  These are really easy to stamp quickly and mass produce for quick Easter cards.
Here is the finished card.
The next stop on your waltz is the talented Ms. Jen Cuthbertson .  Be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs you visit!! There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments.  You have until March 11th at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central (March 12), 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments.

Have a great day and Good Luck!

Jeanne

Oh long time no SEE, Jeanne! Well, really I have been popping in all week, just haven't had the time to leave a proper comment. I LOVE the beautiful bold color on the first...and with that awesome red velvet ribbon of yours! Loved your pink medallion card from yesterday, it was one of my faves on the hop! Your pink Easter eggs are so sweet...I am dying to get those cut files!

Deborah Frings said...

My goodness - you keep on bringing us more and more beautiful cards! Love the rich red and orange on the thank you card. And the Easter card is just delightful - love the lace trim!

Both are beautiful! Oh my gosh I love the second one so much! The embossing , the adorable eggs, and the lace is to die for with that bow! I cant wait to get my stamps!

Cathy Weber said...

Your pink egg card is just my style Jeanne...if I had been smart enough to think of it. I love this cute card especially with the lace and pink bow. Your medallion card couldn't shine anymore if you tried, that red, yellow and orange really jumps out at you and pairs up so nicely with the velvet ribbon and sparkly! Great job on this release.

Bumblebee said...

Oh Jeanne, your pink card is divine! The cut eggs, the embossing, the lace, and that wonderful ribbon - all perfect. And I love the colors on your first card, it is so rich looking.

Lovely cards, especially the 2nd one-love those cut files. Thanks for sharing

LOVE the medallion colors and the gorgeous velvet ribbon--so elegant! And your Easter card couldn't be any more perfect! The cut out eggs on the pretty pink with the beautiful bow & lace look amazing!!

Joyce said...

They are both just gorgeous (of course). I am pinning that first one, because that is the card I wish I could make--and I will, as soon as my stamps come. It is bright and bold and happy, and just perfect.

Absolutely gorgeous Jeanne, I love the sweet cut file eggs, and that gorgeous medallion in these warm colours. Stunning creations!

Didn't think anything else could amaze me but these are so gorgeous. Wow.

Wish I had the cut files, love the lattice detail.

Marie-Louise said...

Two marvellous cards. Just love these stamps. The fact that there is no detailed colouring and shading makes them a winner for me.

colleen howell said...

Rachel Brooks said...

Love the brilliant colors in the first card and the very effective eggs on the second.

Kate said...

Wow your 1st card is stunning - that Medallion set looks amazing. Love the Easter card too (if only I had a Cameo so I could take advantage of all those lovely Waltzing Mouse cut files)

Love the bold statement you made with the first card, in contrast to the soft feel of lace and Easter on the second. TFS!

Love the colors on both cards.

Melanie Ann MacKenzie said...

Love both cards, especially the first one. Ribbon looks like velvet, so chic. Cheers.

Amazing cards! Love the bright colors created by the Folk Art Medallion image. What versitility.

The pink Easter card is fabulous...okay, I adore pink but I also adore lattice, lace and all things frilly so I LOVE this card!

You + the WMS new release = card heaven!!!! I absolutely love every single thing you did with the new release. I know that Claire designs the most divine stamps, but you always take things to the next level. The medallion is just to die for!
