Waltzingmouse and Stamping Around - A challenge made in heaven!

(This is my second post of the day. To see my TMS submission, please click here.)

I'm on my way to a 1-year-old's birthday party. (I made this piggy bank for her birthday.) To make it a bit easier to handle this adventure I got a bit crafty this morning. I used the Stamping Around Inspiration challenge as, well, my inspiration. I picked up the pretty colors and the stacked plates as elements in my card. To be honest, I am pretty excited about this card because it is pretty different from the cards I normally make. I was inspired by the Raise The Bar challenge to mix it up...and I did! I actually sewed. More than that, I sewed beads onto the card. This is my first experience with Gamsol and colored pencils too. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.


  1. The first card I've seen with beads successfully sewn!!! YAH, brill!

  4. Oooh I love it...and I'm suddenly feeling the need to bust into my kids Easter candy and have a peep LOL

  5. Stephanie this is so neat! I don't think I've seen sewing with beads on cards before, wonderful job! Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
