Finally, we have some NEW Waltzingmouse Stamps and lots of em! : ) Today is day one of the previews we're having for the Waltzingmouse Stamps February release. Nine sets are being released and will be available for purchase on the 29th of February. Today we're looking at French Country, Chicken Wire and Make Your Mark. My first card features French Country, there are so many elements in this set, I chose my favorite border and repeat stamped to create the background paper (very easy to line this one up). This would look gorgeous in so many colors! Here's the inspiration photo I used for my card.
It's such a sunny kitchen! A super color combo to work with.
I'm starting to love red a little bit more every time I use it! I used Ink it Up True Red here. The sentiment 'Je t'aime' is from the same set and means 'I love you'.
The black and soft white pearl trinket pins I made, I have a couple of sets in my Etsy shop.
The fab flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Here's the signature stamp I used on the back of my card, it's from the Make Your Mark stamp set. There are so many cool stamps in this set.
So my second card features Chicken Wire and French Country. I went with a fresh blue and yellow color combo inspired by this photo.
The rooster in the French Country set is such a fabulous motif and there are two different sizes to choose from. I decided to make the larger rooster the focal point of my card. I used the larger chicken wire border stamp from Chicken Wire to stamp the top. You can see a peek of the lace border stamp from French Country behind the label. All the blue stamping in this was done with Memento Danube Blue ink.
That fab label is also from French Country and it coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 25, I don't have it yet so I just cut it out by hand.
I just love the font Claire used in the French Country set, it's just perfect for this style! Here I used 'Bonne Fete' which means 'Happy Birthday'.
It wouldn't be french country to me without a bit of gingham! or a lot of gingham! : ) So I sneaked in a bit of Gingham & Co. The cheery yellow gingham and fresh white crochet lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Here's the signature stamp from Make Your Mark I used on the back of this card.
I can't wait to see the previews from the rest of the Waltzingmouse Design Team!! Here's the ladies sharing previews today. Come back tomorrow for a peek at two more gorgeous stamp sets!!
