Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps April release DT blog waltz! You should have arrived here from the amazing Becca's blog. If you've gotten lost along the way visit Claire's blog for the full list of participants.Today three fabulous new stamp sets are being released - My Kind of Guy, Nordic Baby and Man of the Hour. For my cards today I used the two new masculine sets, My Kind of Guy and Man of the Hour. I went with a classic black and white theme today, can't go wrong with that!
I used the chalkboard technique, embossing the frame, text and motif stamp in white, I added some shadow detail to the text with a white pencil and inked the edges with some pigment ink.
For my second card I used lots of different elements from My Kind of Guy, this is such a great masculine set, I LOVE it!
I love this circle frame, to fit the stamped chap in the middle I stamped him on a separate piece of card and cut a circle around him (just using a compass, believe it or not I don't actually have circle dies!). The Charcoal Twine is from SRM Stickers.
The border I stamped in black and fussy cut it out. The 'I say old bean' is from My Kind of Guy and the 'Thanks' is from Man of the Hour. Next up on the waltz is the lovely Kelly! Enjoy the rest of the creations from the design team! Oh AND there will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on our blogs. You have until April 21st at 11:59PM (GMT) to leave your comments.
