Waltinzingmouse Feb. 2012 Release ~ Day 2

It's day two of Waltzingmouse's February Release, and we get to share 2 new sets with you: Florentine Frippery and Nordic Spring. Two very beautiful and fun sets filled with a wonderful variety of images and sentiments.

For my first card, I used one of the images that is compatible with Spellbinders' new Labels 24 die. Isn't it a gorgeous image? I stamped it 3 times using the Versamagic inks Thatched Straw and Pink Grapefruit. I then scored the corners a bit to give it dimension and layered it with some dimensional tape. Lastly, I added an octagon, a button, with a bow, to the center, and a bit of glitter.

I think the sentiment is so proper, fun and elegant. :)

If you click on the photo below, you can see the bg detail better. I stamped one of the included bg images with Versamark, and embossed it using Iridescent Ice ep from Stampin' UP!. I love the elegant effect.

Here's a look at another signature image from the Make Your Mark set. There are images to fit any style card.

For my second card, I stamped the butterfly, from the Nordic Spring set, with VersaMagic inks Spring Pansy and Eggplant, and added some glitter. The bg strip is another image included in the set and it was stamped with Smokey Gray Versafine.

The Thank You sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse set Teeny Trees.

Your Frippery card is in the most amazing shades! So light and airy, and your Labels 24 flower is BRILLIANT, Tosh! Love how you stamped your butterfly in those purple shades, too, with the lattice edge...a spring garden on a card. Beautiful style :)

Beautiful cards! I love the soft peachy color of the first one. And the second card is so soft and elegant.

Hey look - we must have been channeling one another with our Frippery card. Yours is beautiful in that lovely shade of "grapefruit".

I'm loving how great that border looks along with that gorgeous butterfly. Don't you just love it?

Awesome designs, Tosh.
