WMS Day 2 Sneak Peek - North Shore

Welcome back for Day 2 of the sneak peeks for the Waltzingmouse July 1 release!   Didn't you just love all the sweet fairy princess inspiration yesterday?!! (if you missed it scroll down to my post below!)  Thank you so much for all your lovely comments!

Well - today we're going to the beach with another mini stamp set called North Shore.  Vacations are all about creating memories -  so I decorated a 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" Mini Chipboard notebook where I could write notes of my summer adventures and place a picture or two (or 20!)!

I stamped this wonderful surfer image in Bamboo Leaves ink and cut it with an oval Nestability.  Then I stamped it in Bahama Blue on a scrap and cut out the surfer and summer part of the sentiment.  I stamped the NORTH SHORE in Black and the flowers in Rose Bud cutting out and layering the pieces over the original green stamping.  The surfer and flowers are popped up with foam tape.

Then I die cut the waves, stamped the sentiment and punched it with my word window punch adhering them along the bottom as you see.  Here's a side view so you can see the popped up pieces.
I added ribbons tied in double knots along some of the 0 wires -  they remind me of seagulls flying over the ocean waves!
Inside I stamped some images from the set you will see here tomorrow on Day 3 of the Sneak Peeks!
Once again -  we are off to see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire us with this fun summer surf mini set!   See you tomorrow for Day #3!

From Our House to Yours - WMS Forum May Christmas Card Challenge

The May Christmas Card Challenge is up in the Playroom of the Waltzingmouse Forum -  and this month the challenge is to use chipboard.  I made 4 to add to my ever growing stash of Christmas cards.
I remembered I had some Maya Road Chipboard houses in my drawer - and they worked perfectly here.  I got my design inspiration from the Split Coast Stampers Inspiration challenge today - with this decorative plate from the Australian Web store - Hard to Find.

I sponged the house, the die cut circle and the edges of the card with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I stamped the little heart, from WMS stamp set Sweethearts (I placed the house on the circle so I knew where to stamp the heart!), before embossing the circle with Swiss Dots and I taped a piece of Summer Sunrise card stock behind the open window to be the light inside the home!  The sentiment is from A Cottage Christmas.  I stamped "A Merry Christmas to You" from Compliments of the Season inside (not shown) -  but you could also make this a Thank You card -  a Welcome to Your New Home card,  an invitation or even just a note!

We'd love to have you join us in the WMS Forum Christmas Card Challenges - a new challenge is posted the 10th of each month -  you'll be SO glad you did when November rolls around and you have all your Christmas cards ready to mail!

An Empty Purse, Tea and Chipboard

Here's my project for today's Teapot Tuesday challenge - Abracadabra - where you have to show something that has disappeared - and the thing that disappeared??? There's no money in my purse - why???? because I buy too many stamps!! LOL!!! Is your purse empty too!?!?! (I see heads nodding!)

This also covers the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger which is a bright green bag with red and pink flowers from an Ebay shop!All my stamps are new releases from Waltzingmouse Stamps: Big Blooms and Fancy Phrases.

You can find Mel's fun little purse template here in the SCS forums.

I made this card for last weeks Ways to Use it challenge over on Split Coast - to use chipboard on your card. My flourish is a Tim Holtz Grungeboard colored with my ink pad. The fun teaparty sentiment is one of the new sets just released by Waltzingmouse Stamps called Afternoon Tea Sentiments. I used last week's Mercy's Tuesday sketch for my card.

Then, since I had all the supplies out as well as a pile of chipboard shapes (!), I made this second card using the same sketch but different chipboard and another fun quote from the Afternoon Tea Sentiments set.

Hmmmm - I'm suddenly craving a cup of tea!!!
