Waltzingmouse Design Team Blog Hop

Waltzingmouse is hosting a blog party today to introduce you to the new Design Team. The Mischief Makers have been included in the group along with the existing members to bring you loads of creative inspiration. We were asked to choose our favorite Waltzingmouse stamp set and show off our style.

Sounds easy right? Wrong! There are so many beautiful Waltzingmouse sets to choose from! How to pick??? I decided on the Vintage Garden Seed Packet because I think it best defines me. I am a gardener and I love color - the classic vintage look and all the detail in the images can be dressed up to look so elegant. I got a little carried away in my excitement and made three projects to show you different looks you can achieve with this set.
I used the vintage Garden Giant Bundle Cut Files  to create the seed packet frame.  The cut files are available for  $1.50 US and make fussy cutting that window obsolete. 
For my Hyacinth card I stamped in Imperial Purple on rustic cream paper and left the seed packet frame  off.  I added a little twine bow to add to the natural beauty of the flowers.
 Last I made a little gift tag that would look amazing on a gift or even a basket of produce from the garden.  The tag is from the cut files and I stamped in Satin Red ink.  I love how you can add so much color to the images without actually pulling out your markers. 
Keep on hopping to meet the rest of the Waltzingmouse Design Team and get to know their style - I know you will love seeing their creations and see lots of fabulous ways to use your favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps!
