Waltzingmouse Oct. Release Blog Waltz

Waltzingmouse images are in the house!! :) I can't believe the release day is finally here!! It has been such a treat to work with all the new sets, let me tell you! They are all filled with fabulous images and sentiments. All fun and unique!! Today, the dt is sharing the last two sets in the release called: Candy Jar Christmas, and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers. There is absolutely no limit to these sets of images...cards, tags, backgrounds, etc. If you've just arrived from Niki's blog, you're on the right track. Otherwise, you'll want to start at the beginning with Claire. Believe me, you won't want to miss a stop. :)


For my first card, I stamped the jar image onto decorative paper, and filled it with White embossed kraft Gingerbread men. I included the lid on the bottom, as well as one of the included sentiments at the top.


For my second card, I stamped the jar onto acetate, filled it with some candy canes, and added a few candy pieces to the bottom as well. I also included a sentiment medallion with one of the fun circle images, as well as the sentiment "no charge for nice folks". Isn't that just the cutest sentiment?!?!?

Well, that's it for me. You'll want to head on over to Becca's blog now. She always has a wonderfully creative treat to share. Don't forget to leave a comment on each DT member's blog to be entered to win a stamp set of your choice. You have until October 17 at 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern. The winner will be announced on Claire's Blog October 18.


Thanks so much for visiting and for all your kind comments this week. I had a wonderful time sharing this new release with you.


Happy Stamping!!

Oh I love those gingerbread peeking out of the TOP! So clever, Tosh, and I love the soft green with the brown. That candy cane jar is AMAZING! I love how you have the peppermints scattered about, and the PLAID?! Sooo perfect to make the reds pop. The whole sweet design makes me think of a Candy Shoppe Window!

Fabulous first card. Makes me want to make gingerbread cookies (even though I can't eat them as allergic to ginger). Love the multi-looped bow and soft colours. Second card is great with all t hat bright blue and red. Wonderful work on both.

Gorgeous cards! I love how the jar in the first one really looks like it is sitting on a shelf. Cool how you pieced it and have the cute gingerbread men popping out!

christi said...

i love the subdude colors that you picked. great job with the layering too

Astrid Maclean said...

Stunning cards, love the colour combinations on both of them and the slightly shabby look! Such great stamps!

Carola said...

Both cards are very pretty, Tosha. On the first that jar with those gingerbread men looks so sweet and I think it a nice idea to put the lid on the bottom. And the colours are very beautiful, too.
I also like the second in the brighter colours and with those candy canes. And I like the punched border at the bottom of the card.

Kind regards
Carola

ladybugg61 said...

Both are lovely cards, and so different from each other. The first has many lovely layers and elements, while the 2nd is full of vibrant colour & 'sweetness' :-)

snowbear said...

Love the cards... the first is my fav.

Debgem said...

I really like the clear jar of candy canes - such a good idea. But my favourite is your first card - the soft, subtle colours are just so pretty!

I like a lot how you layed out the elements on your cards (don't know if that's a correct English word this way... :-) Love the idea of a shelf on the first card! Looks gorgeous!
Hugs, Wendy

Your first pink & kraft card looks like it's made with sugar! Very yummy!

Lynn Wild

Sharron said...

Love how you used the elements are both cards! The soft green looks fabulous with the gingerbread men and I like how the lid is placed off to the side. The second card is equally wonderful, with the bright colors and array of candies!

Your cards are just wonderful. I like how the jar in the first card looks as if it is sitting on a kitchen counter waiting for someone to come a grab a gingerbread man. How creative to make the jar from acetate on your second card. I love the sentiments you chose as well!
