Hey y’all! Happy Monday! and
Happy Waltzingmouse Release Day!…
Are you excited about the release? I sure am!… I was just sharing how I’m already listening to Christmas tunes as a result of this release and the cozy holiday stamps that are being debuted.
Today, Waltzingmouse is releasing the following four stamps sets:
Today, we are all showcasing A Cottage Christmas for you. This is set is full of sweet, cozy, Christmas goodness! I love the variuos sentiments that provide for cardmaking, as well as gift-making.
First, I have a card for you. I tried to capture the shabby, country, cozy vibe that this set invokes in me, and so I did lots of distressing and glittering.
The detail that Claire included in this little house is just amazing! Check out that lattice work!
And the sweet windows just make me giddy… I love that she added the little piles of snow in them as well.
Before I made this card, I made the first thing that came to mind when I saw this stamp set…
A sweet little handmade ornament. I stamped and colored the cottage twice, and then adhered it to a little chipboard frame that I constructed on a whim… No real template on hand.
Isn’t that the cutest? Who wouldn’t want a little glittery cottage like this to hang from their tree? Granted, I didn’t color it as well as most probably could have, but I tried! *wink* I think the more I practice, the better I’ll get…. it’s beginning to be fun for me in the meantime. Lol…
Here’s a brief peek at how I constructed the frame that is sandwiched between the two cottages:
I’m sure there’s a better way to do it out there somewhere, but I just sort of free-handed it, lol!
Ok, sweeties! That’s all that I have for you today!
Up next in the blog hop is sweet miss Sandie!
