Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Preview - Day 3
Hi and welcome to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May release previews. Three new sets are being released on Tuesday the 8th of May (that's tomorrow!). Today we are previewing the second of the sentiment sets - Compact Sentiments Part 2. I also used stamps from the previously released sets Very Vintage Labels No.18, Heirloom Patterns and Gingham & Co. I made a little trio of pretty notecards featuring some of the sentiments from the new stamp set being released.
I kept the layout and elements the same on each notecard, just switched up the colors, labels and patterns. I clear embossed the gingham pattern from Gingham & Co in the background, the label is from Very Vintage Labels No.18, stamped in Coffee archival ink.
I just love the font in Compact Sentiments Part 2 it's bold but still pretty! So I'll get a lot of use out of it!
The background I stamped and clear embossed with polka dots using the Gingham & Co stamp set. The bottom section of each notecard I embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The pretty flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
On the last notecard I used the diamond border stamp from Heirloom Patterns. To highlight some of the detail on the clear embossed sections I rubbed them with a white ink pad, then dry brushed the edges of the card with white acrylic paint for a soft shabby look.
I used some pretty pastel shades of Baker's twine from The Twinery on each notecard. I used Orchid, Buttercream and Shore. I love the soft pastel shades they have!
Here are the ladies sharing previews today. Don't miss the Waltzingmouse Stamps May release blog hop taking place tomorrow. Thanks for dropping by and I really appreciate all the lovely comments.
