Welcome back to the second day of the Waltzingmouse New Release Preview posts! You are in for a treat again today as the Design Team is sharing peeks of two new sets and some new Waltzingmouse DIES!! That's right...dies! Claire has designed the most gorgeous dies...and a set to match them! :-)
When I sat down to stamp with the new Camellia set I have to say that I
was totally smitten! So much so that I stamped several projects one
right after the other! I don't usually do that...I like variety and
tend to switch between sets. I have always loved Claire's flowers, but
this new set is hands down my favorite WMS flower set...ever!! I have
so many ideas rolling around in my head and I can't wait to make them
all! :-) Instead of sharing all of the projects I made, I have chosen two (I promise to share the other later).
Do you ever feel like you have multiple card-making personalities? I do! LOL! Like my card yesterday, I do like me some vintage goodness with piles and piles of layers! :-) Sometimes though, I like to keep things simple. I can see this flower stamped either way...clean and simple (and graphic looking like my card today) or lots of layers and fussy cutting. My first idea for this set was to create a monochromatic card...with the flowers embossed in white. I decided on black as my base color as I thought the white embossed flowers would be very striking. I completed the card with a simple strip of cardstock (black) adhered across the card with some of the included sentiments embossed on it. I refrained from adding any ribbon (shocking, I know!) and added a single rhinestone instead.
For my next project, I kept with the more simple theme...but went a bit softer. I created a set of three cards (with matching envelopes) and packaged them up in a glassine bag. I decorated the bag with a dark gray belly band and a layered and glittered Camellia flower!
Here's a peek at the set of cards. I just wanted to point out that the sentiments are not ask crooked as they look in this photo! I wanted the cards to be open a little bit to show that I stamped the sentiments on the inside of the card and that makes them look a bit crooked in the photo. I promise they are straight and centered in real life (with the cards closed LOL!)!
I used a shaped card cut file form the Silhouette Store combined with some new My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I embossed the sentiment on the inside of the card (but you can see it through the little "window" on the front). I then added a glittery flower (from the Camellia set).
