January Waltz

I don't think I need to explain the waltz to you!
It's old hat here! However, it's a new year, it's a new waltz, and it's a new card.
Two new cards!
The hearts were stamped and heat embossed with some sparkly goodness,
and the same with the heart shamrocks from WMS set
Celtic Heritage. This is my go to set when I need to work with a WMS stamp.
This set is so versatile, I have made many cards using it.
There are multiple words and phrases that you can mix and match amongst
many Celtic designs for almost every holiday.
I know it looks a wee bit off but I had to take the photo from a different angle to cut down on the 
shimmer glimmer that was blinding!!! don't ask me why I decided at the last minute to shabby this card with all the distressing...something just came over me!!!!!
Golly gee was I looking for a piece of chocolate while making this card...and
didn't have any so made up for it with the chocolate ribbon and ink!!
Any one want to see the rest of the entries?
Head on over to the WMS forum, read the very first link (Lisa's) for details and
enjoy all the hearts and Valentine's Day love.
If you have never been there...then click HERE to sign up! It's quick and easy and so worth it!!!
While you are there you can play the game and take a chance at winning your very own WMS stamp set!

I almost forgot...a couple of close ups!
AND MY OTHER CARD! Keep scrolling......
AND another card!!!!
This card's idea just popped into my head and I had to give it a whirl!
I used the same heart from Celtic Heritage and the sentiment is from WMS Irish Blessings.
I used this sentiment last year for Valentine's Day!
I must stop here it's Sunday evening and the internet is giving me too many headaches...I'll try to come
back and finish this later or tomorrow.
It's Monday afternoon and I am back....has anyone else been having internet service problems?
The second card looks so much better IRL...you can click on the photo to enlarge it so you can read the sentiment.
I used my brand spanking new MS punch 'Rings' for the right border punch.
The shadows cast a pale blue hue behind the trim...trust me it's white!!!
I love my Krylon gold leaf marker/pen/painter for the edges of the top panel.
the embossing if a Sizzix small embossing folder that came is a set!
The gold floss is a must add as there was a booboo on the white cs!
thanks for coming by!
Enjoy the Waltzingmouse danceroo!!!!
There's tons of inspiration there..I have seen it!

Love all the glimmer and shine on the first card, looks so cool. Funny thing when I saw the colors too, I thought of chocolate. Love that chocolate ribbon! Second one is lovely, too, that embossing folder adds such elegance!

Charmaine Stack said...

Joanne, enjoyed seeing your cards. You sure got great embossing out of that Sizzix folder. Looks really deep. I think the gold string bow is inspired.

Shelly Schmidt said...

Amazing glitz on your card(s)- how pretty! I love the shamrocks on the card too.
