Waltzingmouse April Release My Kind Of Guy

Oh my goodness!! So excited to share with you the new April Waltzingmouse Stamps release.   Here's one of those things in life that you just can't have too many of!  Something about that dancing mouse just makes my heart happy!  Here's  the scoop - there are three new sets being released.  The design team will be featuring a new set every day for three days (April 15-17).  We will do a blog waltz review of all the released stamps on April 18 - the same day the stamps hit the store. Today we are featuring a set called My Kind of Guy.
I know you are in a hurry to get to all the designer blogs so I will cut to the chase.  What can I say about this set?    I fell in love with the monocle image with the top hat and the wing tip shoe inspired border.  There are neat sentiments perfect for an proper English gent and I wanted to play up on that theme.   And YES that is a google eye inside the monocle!

The set includes a cool frame and the classic Waltzingmouse "extra bits" accent stamps included with the set that I used as photo corners  here.
One More - I thought I'd sneak some color in here for you!


Here's a list of all the designers participating in this hop.  Just click on their names to jump to their blog or you can start at the very beginning at Claire's Blog here.
Oh and don't forget there is a blog party on the 17th - the theme this month is Spring Flowers.  You can get all the details and link up your design on the 17th at the Waltzingmouse Makes Blog

LOL...you are such a hoot. It never occurred to me to use a googly eye. That's a brilliant idea! These cards are so much fun! Great job Jeanne, as always. Your contributions are so appreciated and loved.

Marybeth said...

Fantastic cards! Love the "old world" but modern look of this set

Cathy Weber said...

FABULOUS!!!! Every single one is fabulous. I especially love the first card in the black/cream combo. That is such a great border stamp included with the set...love the googly eyes, such a great touch to add to the cards. I also love the colorful version...I can see that card going to Carly...I think she would love that one, she always goofs around and tries to "speak British"!

Kelly S. said...

Ohhh that first one looks like an ad for a silent film! I love all of the black and white patterns together. And the googly eyed monocle, so cute! (I went clear with mine...eek, maybe that was too creepy of an idea?? Hee!) Love the sophistication of the plaid background and then you went and made it very World Fair with the ticket paper! You truly showcased the versatility of this set so well, Jeanne!

Renee said...
