Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release Previews - Day 3

Friday, November 30, 2012

Welcome to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps December release previews. Tomorrow, Dec 1st four fabulous sets will be released. Today the team are previewing the set - Ornate Ornaments.

Ornate Ornaments is a fabulous set (another one of those must-haves), I love this set because there are three different shaped ornaments in it that co-ordinate with Spellbinders dies. I have two of the three dies but I'm sure I'll manage fine with the scissors on the third.

I think this is my favorite stamp, it's so classy, so timeless, so Waltzingmouse!  : ) Here I stamped it in Cherry Red and distressed the edges with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. The smaller ornament I stamped in Pistachio ink. This sentiment is from the same Ornate Ornaments set but the 'kisses' stamp is from Festive Foliage.

I also made a large tag using the largest stamp in the Ornate Ornaments set. This one's more subtly stamped using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The tag opens up for you to write your message inside. I die cut the ornament using a folded piece of cardstock to achieve the fold. I love the green on the inside of the tag.

I stamped the inside using more elements from the Ornate Ornaments set, the edges I inked with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo again.

The holly leaves I stamped and clear embossed using a stamp from Festive Foliage. I added some velvet ribbon for a touch of luxury! I hope you'll join us for the Release Day Blog Waltz tomorrow. Here are the ladies showing samples today. Thanks for dropping by and thank you for all your comments, I really appreciate them! : )
