WMS October Release-Day 4

Hello and thank you for joining us for the release of Waltzingmouse Stamps October stamps sets. There a six sets available for purchase today (you can visit the store by clicking on the link above).

The Design Team is having our traditional blog waltz today. Claire’s blog lists the entire design team dance card so if you get lost along the way, visit her blog and she will get you back in step. We are showcasing two fabby treat sets, Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers. These sets are yummie all the way around!

I made some tags to adorn the holiday treats I will be making. Once again, I got carried away and only touched the very surface of the possibilities that these two sets offer.

Mrs C 5

I found this box at Michael’s.
Mrs C 4

I found this jar at Walmart. They had an assortment of sizes to choose from. I think it makes a cute countertop presentation. Shhhh! These cookies are not homemade. On my way home from the store I thought of a great idea for spicing up ginger snaps. Take vanilla icing and mix it with crushed starburst mints (red or green, possibly both combined). Then spread it between two ginger snaps (probably best if homemade).  With a frosting mixture using the red and another frosting mixture using the green, I think they would make rather festive holiday treats!

Mrs C 1

Here is a picture of just a tag so you can see how I sandwiched the twill loop in between the two Nesties.

Mrs C 3

And a picture of a back of the tag. All the tags are the same except they each have a different circular saying in the middle. There are a total of four circle sayings so it worked out perfect. I’m thinking it would be best to use a Black medium tip Sharpie to fill out the To: and From: so that it stands apart from the circle sentiment.

Mrs C 2

  16. Kate, these tags are so pretty and I think the red and black just look perfect together. Together with these tags, the jar and the box are just wonderful gifts.
    I very much like this set, but as I live in a German speaking country and as not everybody of my family or my friends speaks English, it would be rather difficult to use this set. But I love to see what others like you make with it.
    And I still found enough other sets to order *lol*.

    Kind regards
