12×12 DCWV & Waltzing Mouse Stamps Layout

Hello blog readers!!  I’m so excited to finally dive into 12×12 layouts – after exclusively making cards, mini albums and altered projects for the past year. 

I’m participating in two fun events with this BIRTHDAY themed layout. I used DCWV “Playtime” paper stack with its glittered, fun, rustic/outdoor images. I love the kraft color background on all these adorable papers and the glitter elements too! All stamping was done with Waltzingmouse Stamp sets in the following fabulous and versatile collections:

“Afternoon Tea Sentiments”

“Bitty Banners”

“Teeny Trees”

“Half Pint Heros”

“Playful Pinwheels”

Here are links to DCWV and Waltzingmouse Stamps – DCWV is a skecth challenge and Waltzingmouse is a blog party (my first to particiapte in)!

I decided to get a jump on a Christmas card by using this sketch from the weekly WMS Stamp Sketch Challenge as an opportunity! Never to early to plan ahead (she says as she’s surrounded by spooky Halloween themed embellishments and black glitter). Mwwwahahaha.

OK, down to biz…

I used the adorable WMS Stamp Sets: Nutcracker Sweet and Paris Nouveau, a border from K&Co., the turquoise print paper from Graphic 45, three little Christmas themed button embellishments from Dress It Up Button Co. and seam binding from Paper Loves Glue’s Etsy shop in Candy Apple Red, I also gained inspiration on the tying of the bow from Kim (Paper Loves Glue).

Truth be told, this is not my favorite card but I love, love sketch and I’m forever a fan of red & turquoise together.

I used:

Victorian Frippery stamp set from WMS (the large flourish from the collection) to stamp the outside edges of the card and the background on my sentiment “tag”.

Compact Sentiments stamp set from WMS, the Sweet Birthday Wishes in the lovely and classy font.

The paper and embellishments are Prima.
