J'adore

Hello and welcome to another fabby blog waltz featuring those of us who adore Waltzingmouse Stamps! Get it, adore...j'adore...okay, I'll stop. If you just happened by, head on over to the 'Mouse House to get started!

The theme of this month's Waltz is Valentine/Love and I have a pretty card to share with you that I made for my hubby for Valentine's Day! I used the Sweethearts set along with some cute American Crafts papers/Thickers, and tried faux stitching for the first time! I really like how it came out against the red hearts so just may have to try it again! I also made my own patterned paper using the cute bow and arrow image from the set! Another fun technique I know I need to try more! I have so many cute stamps that would make great background papers!

Supplies: Stamps - Sweethearts (WMS), DP/Thickers - Love Collection (American Crafts), Card Stock - Select White (PTI), Ink - Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red (SU!), Rickrack (Joann), Gel Pen, Foam Squares
