WMS May Release Sneak Peeks ~ Day 1

I'm so excited to be peeking the new Waltzingmouse Stamps images for the month of May. I adore Claire's style and vision, and have had a blast working with these new sets. The first being called Gingham & Co. It has 4 fabulous background images. I chose to work with the large plaid and the reverse polka-dot. I started by stamping the plaid with Turquoise Gem VersaMagic Chalk ink, and die-cutting it with the 3 smallest dies from the Blossom 3 Nestabilities set by Spellbinders. I cut 3 of each size, spritzed them with water, shaped them and let them dry. I then just layered them with hot glue and added a pearl to the center and some Stardust Stickles. for the leaves, I stamped the reverse polka-dot bg with Old Paper Ranger distress ink, and die-cut them with one of the Foliage dies by Spellbinders.

Birds are really popular right now, so I thought, why not make my own with the fabulous WMS backgrounds. So I traced one of the Prima birds that I have to make as a template. I then stamped the reverse polka-dots with Pearlescent Orchid Brilliance onto some pink dp by Prima, and Text-it background with Old Paper. I then traced the body onto the dotted bg, and the wing onto the texted background and assembled the bird. I also added a mini rhinestone for the eye.

I stamped the "Much Obliged" sentiment, from the set Back in the Saddle, with Onyx Black Versafine, and framed it with a Very Vintage Labels No. 18 frame.


Whew...did you get all that? That about sums up all the details of this card today. Be sure to check out all the fabulously creative works of art the other gals have come up with. They are inspirational!!
