Waltzingmouse August Soap ~ Day 4

Have you all enjoyed the Waltzingmouse SOAP parades this week? I just got home from a camping trip, so I haven't seen what the other gals have shared, but knowing this fabulous team, they've been fabulously inspirational.

For the final day, we're showcasing a previously released set called Afternoon Tea. I've loved this charming set since the first time I laid eyes on it, and thoroughly enjoyed designing a card around it. I knew I wanted to paper piece the two teacups, and chose my dp accordingly. I had this fun new die frame (Ornate #3) from Sizzix and thought it would be fun to frame the cups and used a Fancy Tag as a base for the sentiment. I also added some Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen pearls around the frame, as well as some I-Rock rhinestones.

I also made this card for the Dare To Get Dirty handmade flower challenge hosted by the sweet Teresa Kline over on Splitcoast Stampers, and thought the flower would fit beautifully at the top of this frame. I made it with 3 of the smallest Blossom 1 dies (Spellbinders), and added a Sultan gem by Prima to the center.

All the dp is from Webster's Pages, and I used some Foliage diecut leaves (Spellbinders), as well as some crystal leaves and lace that I purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts.

eta: This card is rather large... 5"x 9" in fact. With the handmade flower it would be hard to mail, so this will have a be hand delivered.

We hope that you have enjoyed, and have been inspired, the past few days from our Stamp of Approval Parade; highlighting last month’s sets and our beloved Afternoon Tea set. Now it’s time for you to get your craftiness on as we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.

Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog found HERE. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.

We hope you will enjoy this competition and that it will inspire you be creative. You have one week to complete and link your project as the competition will close at 8:00 AM, on Claire’s time, August 10th, which is 3 AM Eastern, 2 AM Central and Midnight, Pacific time. The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on August 11th.

I just love the colors and design on this, Tosha! The blue tea cups inside the oval and heart are so adorable, and the lace, flower, and ribbon are just girly fab. Perfect for an old-fashioned tea party card, makes me nostalgic for the tea parties I used to have as a little girl!
