Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release - Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release previews! The DT and I will be sharing projects over the next several days featuring FIVE new stamp sets that will be available for purchase at the Waltzingmouse online store starting Sunday, May 1.

Today, we're all previewing Gingham & Co. It's such a fun background set, prominently featuring gingham -- of course! :)

Thinking About You Card
Gingham can be used in so many fun ways. For my first project, I used it as a border.
It adds a fun little look to the bottom of your cards. The leaves come from Pic-Nic Patterns and the sentiment comes from Fancy Phrases. The flower, well, that's a sneeky for you. ;-) We'll formally introduce that set later in the week.


Hi Card
You can also use it on your labels.


For this one, I die cut one of the labels 18. The gingham is then stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. Again, the sentiment comes from Fancy Phrases.




Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by these ladies for some wonderful inspiration!

Hi Belinda

You have made three very lovely cards with the new stamps. This gingham stamp looks really great and I'm sure it can be used in many different ways.
My favourite card is the first one, I just like the fresh colours you used and the flowers are very pretty.

Kind regards
Carola

Oh so sweet, I love that FLOWER card, eek! I am so psyched to buy the Gingham and Co. set, and it's so great to hear that it's easy to line up! Can't believe you stamped that butterfly card 4 times with it. Perfection, Belinda!
