Evening folks! I have a peek for you! We have some new goodies coming on the 28th! I've been laid up with lurgy for the second time this month and so there has not been much action on the old blog this week, but I will have some things to bring you over the next few days as we get our October release underway.
Are you liking the new format? - the new static release date of the 28th and our smaller releases? I'm thinking it is going pretty well - it's taken a little getting used to and as always there are still improvements to be made, but I'm thinking it's worth it so that folks know what our routine is - the feedback I've had so far has been great, a lot of folks seem to like the static date.
Looking forward to showing you the new goodies, it's a fun release! I'll be back tomorrow with another peek and then from Saturday onwards we'll have some fabby inspiration for you!
Folks did you enjoy the PJ party? I must admit I am only just getting started today - I loaded the post on Tuesday night and was able to hang around for an hour or so to make sure it was all going and then I went to bed, woke up with a wicked sore throat and temperature, ugh, had a small home from school sick also and spent yesterday pretty much wiped out on the sofa!
I had a quick look and the entries look fabulous and I'll be getting round all of them today! The random winner has been announced - scroll down - to see if it was you!
This card is quite simple, I found some fabby copper checked paper while i was cleaning up and took my cue from that! The Owl (A Great Big Owl)is quite detailed so I didn't add much, aside form a sentiment which I embossed in copper to pick up on the BG paper- quite liked it!
this card was atrial for the embossing challenge so I had added a little embossing using a die cut blank of the owl:
It can be tricky to stamp in a depression - so I stamped the image first
Good evening folks and welcome to our October Pajama Party! Lovely to see you! - we have some fun
challenges for you tonight and we hope you can play along.
If you saw
the Invite post you will be familiar with the challenges and you may
even have your cards all ready to link up, but don't worry there is
plenty of time to play if you are only just joining us - the links will
remain open for 24 hours! (this post went live at 11:45pm - UK time on
the 14th, so you have 24 hours from then!)
PJ Party Schedule:
The PJ party post
and all challenge links are now live since 11:45pm on the 14th Oct -
Folks have 24 hours to link up their challenge entries. - The PJ party winner will be announced at 11.45pm on the 15th Oct.
Rules - a little housekeeping!
• You don't have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps to play along,
but it will make us especially happy if you do!
• You can enter each challenge as many times as you like, using separate cards
and separate links, but you cannot enter any one card in more than one challenge!
• Links should take folks directly to the blog post/spot where we can see/
comment on your challenge entry.
Please mention our PJ party and challenge on your blog or gallery
(- you are welcome to grab the PJ logo or sketch graphic and
those to your blog if you like)
• You do not need to enter every challenge, but the more entries
you have the better change of winning the prize!
We have changed up the format of the prizes a little - we
will have one overall winner chosen at random from the 4 challenges.
The prize winner will receive £30GBP store credit for Waltzingmouse
Now please note - this is important - if
the winning entry uses Waltzingmouse brand stamps or dies the prize will
be doubled and the winner will get £60GBP (approx $98USD)!
Please note that projects using only free WMS products will not be eligible for the double prize - though you could still qualify for the £30GBP!
OK, now we have the challenges, we have a couple of samples to get you going:
Challenge 1.Texturise it
Make a project
featuring embossed textures, BUT we want you to use something OTHER
THAN embossing folders...
My sample for this shows a snowflake embossed on the outside of a tag - I made this by cutting a die cutting a Snowflake One die, and then using the negative shape on the scrap as a mask for some embossing paste! I love how this works and I will try to bring you a quick tut in the next day or so.
I stamped Frosty (from Frosty in the Pines) on the inside - I kept the colours soft and folksy.
a project featuring snow - you can either stamp a snowy scene, die cut a
few snowflakes, add flock or glitter, any interpretation you like, but
we must be able to recognise it as snow!
I could not resist making a snow shaker - I spritzed a cream jute bottle brush tree with distress inks in green and once it was dry, I added some tiny snowballs that I cut from a ribbon trim. I made a tiny garland using the grommit shapes - a star and a circle from the folding tag die set. I strung these on some cream twine and wrapped them around the tree. My topper was made by die cutting two Snowflake Two dies and sandwiching them together - I left one pair of 'legs' unstick and popped them over the top of the tree. I sprayed the whole thing with adhesive spray (outside - that stuff stinks) and then I doused it all in glitter. Likey?
