Have you been following all the Waltzingmouse sneak peeks so far? Well, let me just say that you are in for a major treat!! The new sets Claire is releasing on Thursday are FABULOUS!!
I'm sure I've mentioned here before that three out of the four kids DH and I have are boys. I find myself always struggling to make them cards, for many reasons. One reason is I just don't have that many masculine images...and another reason is, well...I like to "pretty" my cards up and they end up not being masculine at all! LOL! Well, I actually squealed out loud when I saw the "Free Spirit - Boy" and "Free Spirit - Sentiments" sets! They couldn't be more perfect!!
This first card was actually designed in my head well before I even had the stamps in hand! You see, my oldest son LOVES paper airplanes! I find them EVERYWHERE!! Behind bookshelves, on his bed, in the closets...these things are literally all over our house! We got him a book that gives instructions on how to make over 50 different planes and when he mastered those he started creating his own designs! So, naturally my first card with the Free Spirit - Boy set would use the paper airplane!! :-)
Against every card making instinct in me, I kept it very, very simple! I chose a sentiment from the Free Spirit - Sentiments set that would work for just about any occasion.
While I had the orange, green, & blue cardstock out I decided to make another card similar to the first one. I chose different images and a different sentiment but kept the layout somewhat similar.
To spruce it up a bit, I added some twill and a couple of large metal eyelets.
Both of these sets will be released tomorrow!! AND, to celebrate the new release there will be a blog "waltz" (the Waltzingmouse Stamps version of a blog hop)! So, I will see you back here tomorrow for that! :-)
I hope you have a fantastic day! ~Laurie
