Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Previews ~ Day 1



Hello stamping friends!!  Welcome to WMS's August Release previews!!  We have a wonderful variety of sets (8 to be exact) to share with you over the next 3 days leading up to our anticipated Release Day on August 27.  Today we are featuring 2 different sets, and my projects are just as different as can be.  The first set is called Vintage Baby Shower.


I LOVE anything vintage, but I also like modern.  So I thought I would combine the two a bit.  I used a modern shadowbox frame to frame my project.  I started by stamping, this beautifully detailed baby image, with Onyx Black Versafine, onto Vintage Cream card stock, and distressed it with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink.  For the frame, I used the largest 3 dies from the Opulent Ovals die set (Spellbinders).  I started by lining up the largest and 3rd largest, taping, and then diecutting them out of black cardstock.  I then added the second largest die to the frame, but only embossed them this time so the middle die didn't cut through.  After I had the frame created, I added two layers of Black Embossing Powder to the frame (heat embossing between each layer), sanded it to age it a bit, and mounted it over the image with dimensional tape.  For the background, I just took some vintage looking tissue paper and "modpodged" it to some kraft cardstock and framed it in this shadowbox frame.  A bit time consuming because of the modpodge, but very easy to do.

Now for my project using the new set: Hello Happy Thanks


I'm always running short on masculine cards, so I took this opportunity to use this set with some "camo" colors.  It's fairly straight forward.  I just stamped the word "happy" 3 times using Memento inks, made it into a flagged banner and adhered it to the back panel with some Washi Tape.

That's it for me today ya'll.  Be sure and check out what the rest of the WMS design team has to share.  You won't want to miss a stop if you haven't been there already.


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check back tomorrow for some more absolutely charming inspiration!

     Happy Stamping!
