WMS Preview Day 3

Are you ready for another day of previews? :D

I've been in love with the latest release stamps. They are all absolutely fabulous.

Today's cards focuses on a new background set. I used the same layout and even the same stamps to give 2 different cards.

This first card sneaks a peek at both Picnic Patterns and Words of Wisdom.

Aren't the patterns lovely? All the patterns you see here on the card are stamped using the patterns in the Picnic Patterns set. No designer paper was harmed in the creation of this card. ;-)

The top is embossed with white embossing power. For the bottom, I stamped one strip in VersaMark and then the other thinner one in cream. A very subtle effect.

The quotes from Words of Wisdom fit in various Nesties. Now not only can you stamp your own frames that coordinate with the nesties, you can stamp sentiments that fit into them. I like lots.

Ok, next card.

And even though it's not anywhere near Christmas yet, I created a Christmas card. I wanted to show that even though the name suggests its use for summer, it's an all-year round set. :)

You can see here I used the exact same patterns and the same layout. This means less thinking for me... sometimes it's nice to just stamp.

The only thing different is the color palette and the sentiment was pulled from Seasons of Love - Tags.

The striped paper -- stamped with VersaMark and then cream (I tried Spring Moss initially but it didn't stand out enough so I converted to cream so I guess technically its stamped first in moss and then I stamped over in cream). The top pattern is just stamped in red ink.

What do you think so far?

Check out these lovely ladies for some more sneaky peekies!
