Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Preview - Day 3
Thursday, August 23, 2012
Welcome to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps August release previews, today the WMS design team are previewing the stamp sets Little Lanterns, Bright Season and Light of the World Sentiments. I went for a more CAS look with my cards to really focus on these gorgeous stamps.
These little lanterns are so much fun to stamp, I love all the little elements, the separate candles, flames, glow and variety of lanterns. The stamps I used here are from Little Lanterns, the sentiments are all from Light of the World Sentiments, the large glow stamp behind the lantern is from Bright Season.
On each of the cards I also debossed some of the tags or sections of the tags from the new WMS Spellbinders Opera Tags dies. The sentiments in Light of the World Sentiments are all wonderful and would be a great addition to any stamp collection.
All of the lanterns I fussy cut and propped up with foam pads for a little dimension. The baker's twine is from The Twinery.
I think this is my favorite of the little lanterns, I just love the scrollwork! Again I used one of the tags from the new WMS Spellbinders Opera Tags dies to deboss the background.
You know I spent ages trying to decide what color to stamp the candles, I tried yellow and some other colors but I preferred the look of the black. It just worked better on these cards.
I think I'll have to make some cards for my mum with this sentiment on it, she's always lighting a candle for someone in need of hope and prayer. It'll be nice for her to have some cards to send to people too.
Here are the ladies from the WMS design team that are sharing previews today. We'll be back tomorrow with the WMS release day blog waltz! : )
