Waltzingmouse Stamps – March Releases – Preview Day 2

Hi there blog friends, welcome back to day Preview Day Two for Waltzingmouse Stamps March Releases.  The set we’re previewing today is called Folk Art Labels #25 and it’s a cutie!!  I love the whimsy!  I changed up a little bit and made a set of cards a bit smaller than my normal – 4.25″ wide by 6.25 inches tall.   I created perfect layers using Spellbinders™ 5 x 7 Matting Basics A and Spellbinders™ 5 x 7 Matting Basics B.  Then I layered on top Spellbinders™ Damask Motifs followed by Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals and lastly, Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five.  It sounds like a lot of dies but just enough to give the card some depth.



I embossed my ink with clear embossing powder then carefully colored inside with some splashes of copic markers.  This colors up very quickly, so I have to put it in my stamping journal under “quick cards”.

    Becca, estou encantada e deslumbrada com a sua arte, gostaria muito de atingir o mínimo da sua perfeição, sou brasileira, não faço curso de scrapbooking, os custos são altos e prefiro ir comprando algumas e ferramentas, quem sabe chego lá, logo, logo mandarei uma imagem do meu
    trabalho e, gostaria muito que opinasse. AbraçosReplyCancel
