WMS September Release Blog Hop

Written by: iwona    43 Comments

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Blog Hop! Hopefully you arrived here from Laurie’s blog; otherwise you can join us by starting at Claire’s blog. A total of eight stamp sets are being released this month, and we’ve got something for the Halloween and Christmas enthusiasts, ad well as a couple of super trendy art deco sets! Let’s get cracking 🙂

I used the images from All Hallow’s Eve, Spooky Tree and The Count, to make the tags below. Love this tree image, and on an important note, it doesn’t need to be used exclusively in the Halloween context. Autumn or Christmas cards would look lovely with it was well, or any kind of nature-themed design. I can’t wait to play more with it!


Next I’ve got Opera Tags Christmas. It was one of the sets which I missed featuring on the first day of sneak peeks. I hung one of the tags as an ornament, from the Spooky Tree (see what I mean??). It was embossed in teal, over the Zig Zag Background. The tiny bow was cut with my Silhouette.


Two more sets which I now have a chance to share for the first time, the delicious Art Deco Background and Putting on the Ritz. I can see a new trend coming, peeps! Mark my words 🙂
On the first card I created an ombre effect with one of the backgrounds, and stamped the images from Putting on the Ritz inside the negative die cut.

…while I white embossed the other, full-size background on the last card below, and sponged over with Distress Inks. The sentiment is also from Putting on the Ritz. Among the many embellies I combined on this card, is a purple craft feather, chipboard and velvet blooms, hat pins and a branch die cut from Penny Black.

Next stop in the waltz is Jeanne! Thanks for visiting me today, enjoy the inspiration – and happy shopping 🙂

  1. Look at you girl! Lots of wonderful things here! Love the ornament in the branches, the sweet Halloween tags (well I mean SPOOKY HAHA!) and all that glam in the deco cards!

  2. Fantastic projects! I love how you achieved depth by stamping the tree branches in the corner of the tags in black, looks so cool, and the ombre in the last two cards is swoonworthy!

  3. Wow, fantastic projects! Love those tags and the swell cards. But I have to say the Christmas card using Spooky Tree has won my heart – brilliant!

  4. I really really like your “putting on the ritz” cards, they’re beautiful. Very inspirational. And I like the ideas you gave for the halloween tags as well. Thanks

  5. You have been in a stamping frenzy! Wondering about the pumpkin image on the last tag….need to look closer at the new sets….coming in late here….missed a couple days! The art deco BG is so versatile…fun…love the color gradient you created along with the striking colors in the second card and the last card with all the bits and bobs against that BG….happy happy!! Fabulous job showcasing these sets!!

  6. Such awsome tags they are so perfect for halloween! I really love the branch in the second card, such a great way to mix sets. Thanks for all the inspiring pieces they really get me in the mood to create!
    Thanks again

  7. love the branch and would love to add it to my collection. The art deco is so amazing also but the details on the stamps and your cards are fantastic.

  8. Hi Iwona! Wow…you have such a variety of cards here and they are all gorgeous – from tags to projects to cards. I love your themes and LOVE your blog. It is so unique…the chevron back and the front post style is just so funky wonderful!

    Iwona, you had left a post on my blog about “self promotion”! I am anything but…if you knew me…but you don’t. I have a really large community who have egged me on to do this for years…and thus, through my son, no choice! lol

    The card I posted on your site (specifically for your site – you had mentioned that I “did not” post a card specific to your site, and I did do that on my entry to specifically meet your challenge) was for YOUR challenge to meet YOUR requirements. It met the requirements of 2 others as well.

    I am sorry if you have assigned me with malicious intent of JUST self promotion. I am a holy person, I may have written the post in a way that totally leaves the wrong impression, and I take full responsibility if it came off this way. I will go back, re-read it and see, from a more objective eye, to those people who don’t know my background (as a Minister and an extremely reverent person) if it looks like I am out to just drum up business. Honestly, I could not give one hoot if I ever sell a shop. Having one for me is about conquering a lifetime fear of public exposure. I prefer the background! Again, I am sorry if I have offended your senses.
    Soulfully, Samara

  9. Outstanding! I would have to pick the Christmas card for a favorite. I’ve just started making mine for this Christmas, so naturally I’m primed for more ideas!

  10. Wow – what a fabulous selection of projects. I think the tags are so spooky. Love the blue ornament against the zig-zag background – really pops! And the last two cards are so elegant – just lovely!

  11. Iwona your tags are wonderful. I absolutely love your cards with the Art Deco Background and Putting on the Ritz stamp sets. When I first saw these sets I thought “oh they are nice” but then you created these gorgeous cards and now I have to have these sets I’m not sure that my life will be fulfilled without them, lol!

  12. Stunning projects as always darling. I love the grey/black/orange tags, so perfect, and the last card with that unusual colour combo and fantastic stamping is, well, fantastic!

  13. Your right that spooky tree would be so much fun to play with. Love to modern colors and gradients on your Art Deco cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

Your comments make my day!
