Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Preview - Day 3
Tuesday, February 28, 2012
Thanks to everyone who's visited my blog the past few days, I really appreciate all the comments and feedback! : ) Welcome to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps February release previews. Nine new stamp sets are being released on the 29th of February (tomorrow!). Today we're looking at Compact Sentiments and Heirloom Patterns (Heirloom Patterns was designed by fellow DT member Anya). I went for a clean graphic look for my card this time and I was inspired by this photo, yes it is a dog collar! : )
There are two different sized houndstooth patterns in the Heirloom Patterns set. I used the smaller one here. I was SO delighted when I saw this set, I've been longing for a houndstooth stamp! Anya did a fabulous job of designing this set!
It's so easy to line up and stamps wonderfully. I guess you'll be seeing lots more houndstooth cards from me! : ) The bright pink satin ribbon is from the Craft Fairy. I decided to go with a charcoal cardstock for the card base instead of black, for a softer look.
The sentiment is from Compact Sentiments, another must have set! I love the font Claire used on this and I really love the wording in the sentiments. I never have enough sentiment stamps, there's always one you're looking for that will work with the card you're making.
For my second card I went with a more shabby, distressed and textural style. I used the diamond patterned background stamp on this one from the Heirloom Patterns set.
I stamped the diamond pattern onto some beige card and embossed in white. Then I inked over it with some Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
On the little tag I lightly stamped another of the patterns from Heirloom Patterns using Memento Angel pink. The fabulous sentiment is from Compact Sentiments. Delighted to have a new baby sentiment!!
For the flower I made a rosette using the larger Sizzix rosette die and inked the top. For the leaves I just drew a simple leaf template and cut from felt (2 layers) and stitched on the machine. Stapled together because it was handy!
Oh and here's another of those fabby signature stamps from Make Your Mark, I added this one to the back of my card using coffee archival ink. Check out what the rest of the WMS DT have created! Here's the ladies sharing previews today.
