Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Preview - Day 2

Monday, February 27, 2012

Welcome to day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps February release previews. Nine sets will be released on the 29th of February! Today we're looking at Nordic Spring and Florentine Frippery, two stunning sets jam packed full of elements! My first card features Nordic Spring (and a label from Very Vintage Labels No.10).

This butterfly is definitely one of my favorite elements in the set, so I decided to make a feature of it on my card. Stamped with VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit it really is a generous size, I can't wait to make a butterfly background with this one! As I mentioned the label is from Very Vintage Labels No.10 stamped in Memento Rose Bud.

My other favorite part of the Nordic Spring set is the tulip border and individual tulip stamp!! Here I stamped the tulip border in VersaMagic Tea Leaves, cut out, stamped another border with the individual tulip stamp (in pink and green), cut out and layered on top, giving me a little tulip garden! : ) The sentiment I over stamped is from yesterday's preview French Country.

My second card features stamps from Florentine Frippery, a very fancy set!! There are three fab labels, two beautiful border stamps, two sentiments and some individual motifs packed into this stamp set. I used one of the gorgeous labels and stamped it in VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit, the sentiment is from the same set. I just love the elegant font!

The sweet little blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used one of the gorgeous border stamps to build the background pattern again using VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit.

I really love both of these sets, I know I'll get a lot of use out of them, so much to play with!!! Here are the ladies sharing previews today. Oh and we have more gorgeous sets for you tomorrow!!
