Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party ~ Jan.


It's time for Waltzingmouse Stamps' first Blog Party of the year!! I'm so excited to be able to participate with a card using this month's theme, "Sweet Things".



I'm hoping you'll be able to guess what about my card is sweet. My son didn't get it. He thought the image, from the set Teeny Trees (WMS), was a tree or flower. Which is exactly what this image was designed to be, so I can't hold that against him. But I thought it would be fun to make it into cotton candy by using my Quickie Glue pen and some Sparkly Flocking Powder by Martha Stewart. If you click on the photo, you can see the sparkle better.

Hope I've inspired you to join in the WMS Blog Party. All you have to do is make a card with WMS images, with the Sweet Things Theme, and link it to the WMS Blog. There is a time limit, so be sure to check the blog for all the details.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Stamping!!

It was obviously cotton candy to me but this comes from someone who was trying to use the same set to make lollipops!

It's candy floss!!! Brilliant idea. I think it's really pretty - I must thing about sweet things far too much :)

That is SUCH a great idea, Tosh! Between your cotton candy and Jen Treadway's Teeny Tree lollipops, I will look at that set in a whole new way. Love the soft patterned papers in the background and the sweet twine wrap, too!

How clever are you! I didn't take part in this challenge because I was at a loss as to which of my waltzingmouse stamps to use, but you've blown me away with your clever candy floss tree (my favourite WMS set by the way!). Love it!

Cathy Weber said...

Wow, what a great idea, at first I thought it was a lollipop, but now that I realize it is cotton candy, I totally see it and not the lollipop! The sparkle is gorgeous and those patterned papers compliment the pink so nicely.

LaurieJ said...

Heather said...

Obviously, it's cotton candy! Males, they just have no imagination. : ) What a fun idea and very creative to turn a tree into something else.
