Thank you all so much for your comments on my Day 1 post! I read them throughout the day and they really made me smile, so thank you! “Join Us” is the Waltzingmouse Stamps set that the Design Team is previewing today. This is the set that I could not put down (as evidenced by the longest post in my blog history). And for those of you, like me, who might not be an “us” but a “me”… no worries-Claire’s gotcha covered! The set covers nearly every type of celebration and the options with mixing and matching between sets that you might already own make for infinite possibilities.
I love monograms and I think the Join Us set is perfectly complimented by the WMS Victorian Alphabet.
For the casual summer get together…
How did I do the napkins? Super simple. I used dye ink (Memento) and stamped 4-5 napkins at a time. I laid the napkins on the floor and then dried them using my heat gun. Drying within minutes after stamping prevented the ink from bleeding. Because I used dye ink, I figure if the napkin gets wet the colors will likely will bleed, but I figure it’s ok for cocktail napkins because most people don’t really use them (if plate and coasters are provided).
For Christmas…(easily changeable for any winter celebration)
I used the small gingham print from Gingham & Co. for the background. I used a small circle Nestie to emboss inside the wreath. It really adds a classy touch.
For a girl…
More possibilities I would like to try include onsies, cloth napkins, and flour sack dish towels.
