Special Lady ~ Waltzingmouse

Are you ready for some Waltzingmouse Stamps goodness?  Well, you can get the newest release RIGHT NOW during our Stamp sets and die previews.  Claire is doing it a little different this time around.  So, for the next 4 days, we'll be featuring stamp sets along with their coordinating dies and you can purchase them at your hearts desire.  No waiting!!  How cool is that! 

Today we're featuring a stamp set called Special Lady, along with 3 individual dies: Hello, Pretty Circle and Mother.


For my first card, I used the doily image (from the Special Lady stamp set) for the background (stamped with White pigment ink), and diecut the word "Mother" with some gold mirrored cardstock.  I added a few rhinestones, along with some Diamond Stickles to the flower, and a doily in the back.  Simple, yet elegant.


For my second card, I diecut the word "hello" along with the scalloped Pretty circle gold base, and fun little trim circle.  They too are diecut from the gold mirrored cardstock.  I just used it as a frame and added some gold string and twine along with some enamel dots to finish it off. 

For my tag, I tried a new technique I found on the Tim Holtz Blog.  I stamped the Special Lady onto white cardstock with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls to the image while the ink was still wet.  I then heated it with a Heat Tool, and it gives it this awesome sheen.  I did the same with the doily image in the background only I stamped it with Silvery Shimmer Delicata and added Pewter Perfect Pearls to it.  For the tag background, I used some stencils along with a variety of Distress inks.  I also outlined the sentiment with a black Spica pen.

If you click on the images, you can see the sparkle a bit better.  It's pretty subtle and needs to be looked at, at just the right angle.
