Waltzing Mouse Design Team Bloghop

 


Hi Everyone!
Welcome to a Waltzing Mouse stamps blog hop! All of us designers were asked to use our favorite set to date. I chose the Half Pint Heroes - It is just the sweetest and coolest set (and what happened to the Tiny Trees ???? - I've always said they are my no 1 favorite set and maybe they still are - it really is the most versatile set I know! - but after having played with the half pint heroes and half pint heroines I'm in love with them too!!! (-: I just LOVE these super sweet guys and gals - so fun to work with!!! - and they make the cutest cards for kids - just what I need now with a 4-year-old in the house - invited to birthday parties all the time!
If you want to see the technique I used for this card I have a video tutorial here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3pEelTW0i4&feature=youtu.be

Maybe you are already doing the hop so then just continue - but if you just happened to stop by here start at the beginning with Kim's blog! I can assure you WONDERFUL inspiration!

 
 But before you leave, maybe you'd want to enter my Favorite products giveaway (vintage lace and ribbon, doilies, stamps etc.) HERE.
 
Have a wonderful day and a nice hop! Hugs, Karin

Such an adorable underwater adventure! Great use of those distress ink and how your water spots make the water seem all the more realistic. Thanks for the link to your video!

Karin, I'm so super pleased you are on the waltzingmouse DT. I can honestly say I have never seen one of your cards that I didn't like, you are so inspirational. I have to disagree on your choice of favourites though, Teeny Trees should definitely have won through, but this card is so cute, and full of your trademark sponging!
