Waltzingmouse July 2012 Release ~ Day 3


It's our 3rd day of July's Waltzingmouse release, and the set we're previewing is called My Island. And let me tell you, this set has a plethora of possibilities. I went mostly white with my first card. The main panel is actually composed of 5 images. It was a blast layering them. I just framed it with a Spellinders Floral Oval die, and added a sweet little pinwheel. That really isn't there because that set isn't going to be peeked until tomorrow. *wink* The sparkly flourishes in the background are from the set peeked yesterday called North Shore.


Isn't this straw umbrella just charming? Well, we're taking a family vacation to Hawaii this year and will be going on a few excursions. I like to tip our guides if we really enjoy our adventure and I thought it would be nice to include a little Hawaiian thank you card with it. Thus the "Mahalo".


I also made a card with the sentiment "Aloha" for the lady who will be cleaning the condo for us during our stay.



Of course I had to include a signature on the back of my card, and Claire has helped with that with her signature set called Make Your Mark. Love this versatile set. It has a signature for virtually any style needed.

Well, that's it from me today. Tomorrow I have a totally different color palette to share. I hope you'll stop by for a look-see!!

Here's a list of the DT members who are Waltzing today.

Happy Stamping!!

Tosha this is fabulous! The color on your main panel just pops right out - it's beautifully vivid again the elegance of the white!

Lovely cards! What do "Mahalo" and "Aloha" actually mean then? Being from the UK, I'm not sure.

Oh these are just scrumptious! I love your first card with the oval shaped scene - really, it is amazing how changing the shape changes the whole feel. Adore it! Love that little embellishment there, too! ;) This set will be perfect for all your post-Hawaii trip photos you'll want to scrap, too! :)
