Waltzingmouse July Release


It's Release Day over at Waltzingmouse Stamps and the DT is hopping!! Woo-Hoo!! And what a fabulous release it is too. 8 sets of pure stamp gorgeousness!! Claire is starting off the hop. So if you haven't been there yet, head on over there. You won't want to miss a thing. I assure you.

I have some very clean and simple projects to share with you today. Since it's the weekend leading up to the United States' Independence day, I was inspired to make my projects fit that theme. So, for my card, I made a patriotic cake, with the new Eat Cake set, complete with a topping of blue sparklers ( in which I used a flourish image from the Flourishes~Scallops~Dots set.)


I used Perfect pearls to get the shimmer and glow of the flourishes for this CD case. I just love the look of the flourish in the brilliant blue. I reminded me of fireworks. The sentiment is from the Cameo to Go set.

Like I said, Clean and simple today. Next up on the hop is Sarah. You have a chance to win a Prize too. So be sure to check out all the blogs and leave a comment in order to be entered into a random drawing to win a stamp set of your choice. You have until July 2, 11:59 EST, 10:59 Central and 8:59 Pacific.

Thanks for visiting this week. I hope you've been inspired!
Have a fabulous weekend, with Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
