WMS PJ Party


The Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party has rolled around again after a summer hiatus. There are some fun challenges posted here.

First up is the Doodle Do Challenge, to do some freehand doodling on a stamped image. This was a tough challenge because Claire's stamps are so detailed already that they need no embellishment! I added some dotted swirls in blue and polka dots in white to this fellow's costume.


Old Pajamas is the third challenge (I am skipping the cute Halloween challenge) to use an oldie but goodie stamp set. One of the first sets of stamps I bought from Waltzingmouse Stamps is a sheet of sentiments - Fancy Phrases - including this Belated Birthday Wishes stamp. I used it on a box card file from SVG Cuts. This card folds flat for mailing!

When cutting files like this I prefer to do two at a time so I used another WMS stamp for the sentiment below:


There is also a Bedtime Story Sketch, but I have not had a chance to make a card for that and I think time is running out. If you have time, you should give it a whirl, then post your creation on the WMS blog. There are already lots of neat interpretations of this sketch to take a look at. Have fun!

Wow! I had to look at that nutcracker close up because at first I thought it was all paper pieced - amazing! Your coloring is wonderful and all the added details make it even better. And the pop up box with all the pretty flowers is gorgeous - like a beautiful bouquet. Someone is going to be very happy with this surprise!!
