Waltzingmouse May Release Previews ~ Day 3


 


It's day 3 of our Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews and today we're showing just how versatile these sets are.  Today we're combining the sets Country Labels 4 and USA 1776.



 


The sentiment is framed with a charming dotted Country Labels 4 image, and I added the leaves with a button center underneath.
(I noticed, while editing the photo, that my music in the background is upside ...shhhhhh....sorry for not catching that earlier.)

 


I wanted to show that the star isn't limited to a patriotic theme, but is quite versatile in its own right.  So I embossed the stripes with white embossing powder onto some dp and layered it onto a white piece.  I just traced the outside of the star die to get a 1/8" larger piece to back the dp with, and diecut a smaller star for the center.



I love this dotted circle frame with the blanket stitching.  It's so homey, so I thought I'd add it to the bottom of my hanging with the "Give Thanks" sentiment inside.

That's it for today's project.  Tomorrow I have some goodies to share with you.  :)

Make sure you didn't miss a stop today.  These gals just ooze inspiration!!

This is too cute!! Fab idea for the star in a different way!! I'm thinking I've stamped something upside down before myself....it happens and the hanging is still perfect!!

So delicate and lovely. You definitely showed how versatile this collections is. Thanks for the tip about tracing around the die to make a slightly larger star. I have tucked that in my grab bag of good ideas.
