A Waltzingmouse Christmas – cards

Written by: iwona    16 Comments

Welcome to the special, four day event at Waltzingmouse Stamps, called A Waltzingmouse Christmas! We’re right in the festive mood and eager to show you some yumminess made with old and new stamps and brand new dies too! Today the Design Team got together to share some cards, made with their favourite WMS sets. Are you ready??

I reached for my favourites, the Bright Season lantern and the sentiment from Compliments of the Season, both with their timeless elegance and old world charm. It’s also for the first time that I tried the ever-so-trendy chalkboard technique. I’ve been reluctant as an OCD in me has trouble accepting the slightly messy look, but it’s a fun stuff indeed and a great effect to boot!

I embossed the elements in white first, then added the candle in teal and the flame / aura in sparkly gold. I never mixed embossing powders before, but I’ll certainly revisit this technique again after today’s experiment. Great fun!

The nudge I needed to try this look, lies in the Muse Challenge #44, with the beautiful card by Marion. Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow!

Here’s the list of all ladies participating in today’s festivities:

Jeanne Jachna /Jennifer Holmes / Julia Aston / Kelly Schirmer / Kim Duran / Laurie Schmidlin / Renee Lynch / Tosha Leyendekker / Claire Brennan / Lynn Mercurio / Teresa Kline / Edna Morrisedie / Anya Schrier / Becca Feeken / Jen Cuthbertson / Karin Akesdotter / Sandie Dunne

  1. Love your OCD chalkboard! 😀 Just enough subtle ‘chalking’ for the effect, whilst stopping you from fraying your nerves as you cut you teeth on it. 😉 Lovely graphic look!

  2. Love the colors… the black looks fabulous with turquoise and the chalkboard/white embossed lantern! Your chalkboard is perfect!!
