Celebrating Waltzing Mouse Today



Welcome to the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz this month! Since Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps have been in business one year, the theme is birthdays. I’ve used the very first set I ordered from Waltzing Mouse, Earth Angel, for my card.




My angel’s dress is paper pieced with the back/coordinating Bo-Bunny Sophie Stripe paper. I used nestabilities to frame the SU sweet treat pocket filled with assorted wild flower seeds. Because Waltzing Mouse stamps are clear photopolymer, I was able to curve the sentiment and pattern around the circular frame. Angel’s wings are two leaves from SU's stitched felt sweet pea pack. I added some sparkle to her shoes, hair bow and stars with spica glitter pens.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
