Waltzingmouse April 2013 Blog Party





It's felt like spring in San Diego for some time now, so I am very happy with this month's blog party theme of Spring Flowers.  In contrast to last month theme, where I had no suitable stamps, I have three Waltzingmouse sets with flowers.  That is like an entire garden of flower stamps.

I chose to use Camellias, which is my newest Waltzingmouse set, and my latest love.  I stamped two of the Camellia flowers and some leaves onto some patterned paper from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss, and cut them out.  I used the Lil Inkers Instant Camera die to cut a frame from another sheet in that pad and nestled everything together.  I cut all the background sheets with Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles, and impressed the back piece of the camera die with a woodgrain impression plate.




I won't keep you.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  I am particularly interested to see what my friend Kim from Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim has done for this party.  I sent her the very same stamped images that I used, and I'm sure she will do something completely different with them.


Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Camellias, PTI Sending You
Paper:  PTI Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss, Simple Stories Vintage Bliss
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Other:  Lil Inkers:  Stitched Rectangles, Instant Camera Dies, PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate


Thanks for Visiting

  13. Joyce, you are so stinking creative to stamp those beautiful flowers on patterned paper, gives your flowers so much depth and with the green background, just beautiful. I was really looking forward to seeing your card today to see how close or different our cards were using very similar supplies. Thank you again for sending me the camellia's, they were so much fun to play with.
