much appreciated

Guess who is Moxie Fab this week (and always)?  Waltzingmouse Stamps is being featured today over on the Moxie Fab blog.  It's great to see Waltzingmouse Stamps and Claire getting the much deserved extra attention.  Waltzingmouse Stamps offers high quality photopolymer stamps with amazing designs and fabulous customer service.   Claire, the owner, is one of the sweetest people I've met through stamping and I'm so honored to get to work with her.  Head on over to the Moxie Fab blog for a chance to win SIX Waltzingmouse Stamps sets.

I don't have a Christmas card to share, but I thought I would share this card today instead.  I made it back when I was the muse for the CASE Study Challenge, but never got around to sharing it until now.   I used the following Waltzingmouse Stamp sets to create my card: Afternoon Tea Sentiments, Rescue Remedies Additions, and Pic-Nic Patterns.

I started by stamping the pattern on my card base using petal CTMH ink and a background stamp from Pic-Nic Patterns.  Then, I stamped the sentiment from Rescue Remedies Additions with black CTMH ink on kraft cardstock.  I stitched around the edge and adhered the piece to my card with foam adhesive.  I stamped the pansies from Afternoon Tea Sentiments twice on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink.  I colored them with copic markers and cut them out.  Then, I layered them and adhered them with foam adhesive.

Okay, head on over to the Moxie Fab blog for a chance to win some free stamps.  Claire is also doing an unrelated give away on her blog so be sure to check it out, too.

Have a great day!

Beautiful card Niki. I must admit that I haven't taken the plunge to purchase any of these stamps yet. I may not be able to hold out much longer. Hope you are having a stress free Christmas season.
