WMS September Release Waltz

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse September Release Design Team Blog Waltz. Make sure to start at Claire's blog to go through the entire waltz! You should have come from Anya's blog and you'll hop to Bonnie next!

This month there will be 5 fabulous sets being featured in the waltz (Teeny Trees, Bountiful Baskets, Half Pint Heroes, Music Backgrounds and Nutcracker Sweet) ! Remember you can win a free stamp set by leaving a comment at each blog along the way! One winner will be chosen from comments on Claire's blog and one winner will be chosen from comments left on one of the DT's blogs!

Today, I'm just going to feature the one set that I haven't featured yet on this blog... Teeny Trees! 

It's a fabulous set that lets you create trees for all seasons....

Like spring:
This is a pretty simple card and I used some buttons on my tree as well for some color. The darker pink border is actually stamped with a simple dot (found in Nutcracker Sweet) and the branch from the Teeny Trees set. Isn't it fun?

You can also create fall trees:
I wanted to let some of the leaves fall off the tree. I also stamped the leaves in red and orange to give it a fall-ish look.

If that's not enough for you, there's even fun little things like birds you can place in your trees.
I had someone ask me recently how I sew straight. Well, I'll let you in on my secret... I cover up my boo boos! See that sentiment piece? That's covering up a sewing boo-boo! Haha. The other thing I tend to do is I sew super super slowly and I slowly adjust the paper if I start to see the sewing go off course. :)

And if you don't want to stamp trees, you can just create flowers and backgrounds instead:
The stems are from Pic-Nic Patterns, otherwise, everything else from the acrylic stamping to the sentiment are from the new Teeny Trees set. I love that circular stamp for bg stamping.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to continue along the wonderful waltz to Bonnie who is sure to have some lovely projects to wow you with!

I love all the four cards you've created with these stamps! There are so many possibilities with this set and I love trees, so it's a perfect one to me! I like a lot all cards you've made, but the third one is my fave! Cute little bird in the tree and I like a lot the paper repeated as a ground for the tree, looks great! And you've covered up your boo-boo perfectly, gorgeous card!!!
