Waltzingmouse Oct. Release Day 1 ~ Seasonal Remedies

Hello everyone!! I'm so excited to start sharing some Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks with you this week!! Today the Dt used images from the set Seasonal Remedies. It's full of Charming remedy labels and fun little sentiments. I chose to make the "Pure Joy Effervescent Formula Remedy" into a tag, and the charming little Bethlehem scene into a little label.

I have a friend who LOVES coffee. In fact you could say it brings her "pure Joy". ;) So I thought it would be fun to transform some Starbucks Frappuccino bottles and their case into a little Christmas gift.

I started by framing the little Bethlehem scene with the Spellbinders Labels 4 and Twisted Metal Tags and Accents dies. I added some Bronze Viva Decor Gel around the frame and some seam binding ribbon along with a Bazzill button and some Burgandy Burlap String.

I stamped the "Joy" tag with Onyx Black Versafine, diecut it with the Labels 15 die by Spellbinders, and ink distressed the edges with Walnut Stain by Ranger Distress ink. I also added the little crown tag by punching it out with SU!'s small oval punch, and attached both with some Black Burlap String.

I added the fun little sentiment "To bring you Good Cheer" to the bottom corner with some Onyx Black Versafine. I wish I would have embossed it so it stood out better though.

For the tops of the bottles, I stamped a small doily from the Dainty Doilies Large set, and framed it with a punched circle and the scalloped circle from the Ironwork Accents dies (Spellbinders). I added a paper ribbon around the top of the bottle using a Martha Stewart punch for the border. The paper is all from the Christmas Lost & Found My Mind's Eye Collection, with a Dark Chocolate PTI base.

Here's another look at Claire's charming Remedy image!! I tell ya, this set is so fun. The remedies could work with just about any drink you can come up with, or just be made into a fun card!

As a coffee lover - I think this is a wonderful gift and would be delighted with it! The labels look fabulous - brilliant work!

Just AMAZING, Tosh!! Love all the earthy, homey, holiday warmth in this fantastic design. I love the level you take paper and stamping to. What a fantastic gift idea; I don't know if they have those cute little bottles here in Canada. Certainly not in our tiny town of 5,000!!! But, I'll keep my eye out for something to try and case this wonderful creativity with. Right now, I'm off to order me some paper!! Hugs~ (p.s. love those little paper "magnolias" you taught Pat to make; yet another sample of the height your imagination reaches!)
