Waltzingmouse Stamps – February Releases – Preview Day 2

Hi there blog friends!  Wasn’t yesterday just dreamy with the French Country, Mark Your Word and Chicken Wire?  If I didn’t mention it, there are nine new sets and today we are previewing Florentine Frippery and Nordic Spring.  It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but I love trying, so here goes :-)

This card is made using Florentine Frippery.  Of course there are stamps in this set that match Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Four so I jumped to use them together.  I created a layered flower and alternated the layers with Spellbinders™ Persian Motifs and Spellbinders™ Persian Accents and filled in the center with Spellbinders™ Spiral Blossom Three.  The sentiment – which is so cleverly archaic is hung on Spellbinders™ Office Supplies.  

The border is created by lining up the filigree element from Spellbinders™ Damask Accents then layering a strip of paper over top.  The Frippery pattern that is stamped on the border strip is simply exquisite!

For this card I used elements from Nordic Spring and Florentine Frippery.  The heart is cut using Spellbinders™ Classic Hearts which I mounted over two cuts using Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five.  I love, love, love the matching stamps!!

Using the Nordic Spring I stamped the border and folded it to make an elevated banner.

I love the sentiment.  It really pokes fun at archaic sayings and this is definitely not a stamp or sentiment you already have in your stash, lol!!

  • Eunice BrownFebruary 27, 2012 - 11:07 am

    Good morning Becca,
    Oh my, I love both of your cards this morning, especially the aqua card,(at least I think it’s aqua). No matter, you did a wonderful job in pooling all the elements together. I don’t know how you do it day after day. I could work all week and only get one card to look decent (lol) the rest would end up in the round file. Thanks for sharing, and have a great week.ReplyCancel

    It is so wonderful to get up and see a post from you each morning. Even though I don’t have the supplies and tools you do everything you share inspires me to get in my Craft Closet and create something beautiful. Your cards are both so lovely but that flower is amazing!

  • Dottie DavisFebruary 27, 2012 - 3:37 pm

    OOOh, ahhhhh. This card is gorgeous! I love the colors, the ribbon, the flower, just every thing is splendidly done. Gosh. I am trying to think of something original to say but I can’t find the words to describe your creations. They are just out in a league of their own. If someone wants to excel he needs to hang with the big dogs. You are one of those from which to learn. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly SchirmerFebruary 27, 2012 - 4:22 pm

    Oh my what you do with Nesties! Your layered Label 24 flower card is out of this world! It doesn’t even look like paper! The curled edges on the petals are so smooth and lovely! Your Nordic card is so elegant, I just love the birds nestled in the heart with the lovely Frippery sentiment. I shake my head in wonder, heee!ReplyCancel

  • Maryellen WebberFebruary 27, 2012 - 4:27 pm

    I just think these cards are beautiful. Those sentiments are certainly different. The flower on your first card is so beautiful with the layers you
    created with the Spellbinders.ReplyCancel

    I HAVE to get this “frippery” set. Somebody appreciated my irreverant side when they created this! Love it to pieces!

    Speaking of loving it, I love what you did with the aqua flower. Stunning! I just bought Labels 22 yesterday (if I remember correctly, you were responsible for introducing me to that as well :) ), now I’m going to have to go shopping again. Whatever will I do?

    Thank you for such a fun way to end the day!ReplyCancel

  • cindy ClickFebruary 27, 2012 - 6:12 pm

    My husband always knows when I pull up your blog because I let out a little gasp each time I see one of your beautiful creations!! What elegance, what a stunning flower and the aqua is so soothing. Your heart card is so pretty. The lace, bow and stick pin just works so well together. These knew stamps are so wonderful and will have to order them, along with the flower #3. I bet these companies see a serge in orders every time you post a card!!! I hope you get a cut!
    And then today, I rec’d happy mail. The bow maker came in and I can’t wait to start playing. Thank you for all your contributions to the craft world. I tell my husband you are the reason the mastercard bill is so high each month!! (Just kidding, he gives me a craft budget each month.)

  • Charlene LeBelFebruary 27, 2012 - 6:16 pm

    Hi Becca, Just Beautiful. Your cards are the absolute most fantastic in the world. I recieved my bow maker today and the card that was with it is just gorgeous. What a lovely accompaniment. I hope I can make some bows almost as lovely as the ones you make.
    Thank You for making these beautiful cards and for your bow maker. I only wish I had the money to get all the Spellbinders to go with the bows I hope to make. I have some dies and I try to get some when I can. I love Spellbinders dies.

    Thank You,

    Take Care,

    Another beautiful card to add to the list of favorites. As I read over some of these comments there is really nothing left to say as everyone is always in Heaven just looking at your creations. But I found something to top the list! Today I recieved my Becca’s bow maker and I was so excited to open the package. Now I have my own Becca card!!! It is so pretty and I am so pleased. My first bow was not hard to make either. Thank you for all the inspiration you give. I also have to agree with some of the comments on how I am inspired to buy by what I see you use. Great advertisement.ReplyCancel
