Waltzingmouse July Release ~ Day 1

Hello fellow stampers!! I'm so excited to be sharing some projects this week made with the newest Waltzingmouse Images. Today the design team is sharing images from 3 different sets: Ovals ~ Classic Frames, Cameo Creations, and Cameo to go. Today I have three projects to share with you using the Cameo to go set. I made a card using the Cameo Creations set also, but I used a set that I can't peek until tomorrow, so you'll have to check back then. :)

One of the reasons I'm so excited about this release, is because I love silhouettes. In fact I have a small collection. (I posted a picture of some of the framed art at the bottom of this post.) My mother started collecting them many years ago, and after she passed, I inherited her collection, and continued to add to it over the years. Most of my collection consists of silhouettes with dried milkweed and flowers in the background, that were made in the late 1930's, and are quite hard to find now.

Well, now that you know one of my passions, here are the 3 projects I promised. For the box, I used a template that I borrowed from my dear and uber talented friend Pat Smethers. The stick pin was a gift from her as well. I made the cameo with Sculpey Clay by stamping the image with Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress Ink directly into the clay and baking it. now this is my very first time working with the clay, so don't look too closely. :) But I love how the image is raised because this stamp has a negative silhouette image..

For this card, I stamped the frame and the silhouette image with Versamark onto black cs and embossed them with white ep. The Spellbinders window frame is covered with Ultrafine transparent glitter. I wish you could see it irl. I have the hardest time getting that stuff to show in photos. I also scored three stripes before the punched border.

My second card was made for the Teapot Tuesday challenge hosted by Cindy Motherway over at Splitcoaststampers. We were to include numbers on this card. I thought Roman Numerals would be fun. The sentiment as well as the leafy border are from Cameo Creations.

Lastly, here is a sampling of my silhouette collection.

Well, I'm the last stop on the hop, so if you started here, you'll want to head on over to Anya's blog and start at the beginning. Otherwise, I hope you've enjoyed the little Waltzingmouse sneak peek of what's to be released on July 1.

Here's the complete hop list. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Oh MYYY your clay cameo is so authentic, Tosh! I love the soft touch of blue from the ink, the whole box is beautiful! Love all of your projects today. That Roman numeral card is so cool. I love me a Teapot Tuesday! I haven't been able to play in quite a while, and now you have me hankering for a cup of fun hosted by Cindy ;)

Unknown said...

Wow - Tosha - these are incredible. I'm so impressed with your "clayability". That Sulpty clay cameo is amazing, as is the other project. I do love your collection of cameos and I can see why this set is near and dear to your heart. FANTASTIC job.

Stamp like you mean it said...

Tosha, your box is so ultra-fem and vintage! Every inch delish my friend. I love that you showed your silhouettes, and how wonderfully you put them to paper. What a sweet memory. Your talent truly comes from the heart- and can be seen in these! lymi....

Julia Aston said...

Three wonderful creations Tosh! love the box and the clay cameo! I'll have to try that out!

Also love your cameo collection - I found a similar piece a couple of years ago at an antique show - it was of a skiier and I gave it to my SIL who lives in VT - they are quite lovely pieces of art aren't they?!

Sandie said...

Stunning work. Great use of the stamp, love all your colours and designs.

Wow, so pretty! LOVE the box and the fun clay silhouette! How cool!

anya said...

Tosh, these are fantastic. The cameo you created out of clay looks like it could be a brooch - it is stunning! The detail is amazing (you should share a tutorial with us!! ;)

Jan Garber said...

The clay idea is really a good one! It does look like a cameo brooch! And you have an amazing collection of Scherenschnitte! I used to cut a modern version of those where I cheated and used an X-acto knife! Your projects are gorgeous!

Mona Pendleton said...

Wonderful projects Tosha! Love the cameo showcased on the gift box and the pure elegance of the black and white card! Thanks for the inspiration!

Pauline said...

Just gorgeus, breathtaking and stunning!!

Helen L said...

beautiful!!!! Thanks for sharing your talents with us! and how long have you been collecting silhouettes, and where have you picked them up? I have the name of a man who cuts them from Solvang if you're interested: he does custom orders for anniversaries, b-days, births, etc. and he does amazing work! I got to see him do his cutting at a museum presentation at Solvang during their Danish Days.
