A Waltzingmouse Christmas Day 2 - CARDS

Did you see the new Waltzingmouse Stamps sets?  YEP!  They are in the store early this time to help you get a jump on your holiday creating!  Oh and did I mention matching dies too?  YES!  I know right?   We're calling November 18 -21st "A Waltzingmouse Christmas" because we are showing projects made all our favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps - not just the new ones.   The new dies match the previously released set so it's time to dig them out and have some fun!!  The dies are the window type so its easy to stamp your image, line up the die and run it through your machine for a perfect cut every time.   Today our focus is cards!
The very first Christmas set I purchased from Waltzingmouse was the Nutcracker Sweet!  Sorry, no matching dies for this one - but don't forget all the label sets that are made to fit perfectly inside a Spellbinders die.    Does this card look familiar?  I updated the original that I made a few years ago.  I think this one looks a little cleaner - I know the stamps are lined up better too!  HAHA!!  How many sets do you think I used on this one?  You'll have to check the supply list to see if you're right!
My second project features the new Folk Art Christmas Additions set.  You are going to love 
how clean and easy these are to stamp. There are four solid stamp images with lots of intricate cut "folk art" details. There is a reindeer, ornament, bell, and dove with matching sentiments. 
That little kraft bag is perfect for tucking in a little gift - maybe some cash or a gift card! I'm guessing you want to see more! Check out projects form the rest of the design team showing projects today. Just click on their name to hop to their blog!

Oh that Nutcracker card - I would remember it anywhere! It was the first thing I ever saw from you and it stopped me in my tracks! I love your Folk Art bells card - you have such a knack for combining elements beautifully. You never cease to inspire!

Kristi said...

How delightful are these! Beautiful work,my friend!♥

Cathy Weber said...

Love all the lace trim on your cards today...that lavender nutcracker is beautiful...love the subtle stamping behind the nutcracker. Pink and lavender...such great colors for a holiday card. Your new folk art stamps look like they would be fun to stamp...kraft, red and aqua are always a great combination for Christmas...ooh, I see a glittery clothespin too! Beautiful cards today Jeanne, as always.

Both are really beautiful Jeanne! Love the purple Nutcracker and those bells--I LOVE that set so much.

Those bells, those bells...my fave image of this release, and I love them doubled up like that! Leave it to you to make me love a purple Nutcracker...and can I tell you how much I am loving your coordinating watermarks?! We all need to do that!!!
