Welcome to the first day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release previews! The DT and I will be sharing projects over the next several days featuring FOUR new stamp sets that will be available for purchase at the Waltzingmouse online store starting Sunday, November 7th. This is such a fun release -- lots of great all-season sets and even more fun Christmas sets!
Be sure to check out Claire, Anya, Bonnie, Jennifer, Joan, Julia, Laurie, Lisa, Lynn, Mona, and Sandie who all have fabulous projects to share with you!
Today I'm going to feature cards from the fabulous new set called Festive Foliage.
For this one, I stamped the pine tree pieces with white pigment ink. Because pigment ink stays "wet" for a bit, I was able to carefully swipe some perfect pearl in gold onto the edges with my small paint brush. Can I say, I LOVE the look of it? The closeup shows it in much better detail.
I carried over the images onto my tag image (since its propped up with dimensional adhesive the close up view I have makes it look "off" but really its just the angle I did that camera shot). The gold strip on my tag is created with some scor-tape and gold perfect pearls (have I mentioned how attached I am to the stuff?).
When I started writing this post (at the last possible minute of course), I realized that all my cards used a combo of gold perfect pearls and kraft... to save you all from my sad obsession, I'll save those two cards for later in the week so you don't get sick of me. ;-)
Therefore, at 9pm, I scrambled to try making another set (since none of my other release projects are ready yet either..yay for procrastinators). I figured this is perfect for those of you who perhaps like to wait til the last minute to start those Christmas cards? ;-)
Rather than bore ya'll with slightly different versions of the same card, I went ahead and made the othe two smaller. You can always click on any image on the blog for a larger view.
Thanks for stopping by today! :)
