October Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #2 54

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 5, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | ,

Hi There! Today is Day #2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps October Previews! Just to recap: Claire will be releasing FIVE new stamp sets available for purchase in the Waltzingmouse Store on Thursday, October 7th. For the next 3 days, Claire, the Waltzingmouse DT & myself will be sharing more great samples to help inspire your creativity!

First up, is a Tea themed card, using a combination of the NEW Frame It and Text It sets along with a few "oldies but goldies" ;) I stamped the square frame image from Frame It, followed with the fancy a cuppa sentiment then trimmed the image to size. What a great quick & easy way to show off any focal point?!
I inked up the cup image from Afternoon Tea Sentiments and colored using with the Copic markers shown in the photo below.
To decorate the tea cup, I adhered a hand crocheted fleurette compliments of my sweet sister Tina paired with a lil' paper rose.
Now on to a more Sweet & Simple card of sorts:How could I refuse this darling cupcake???? Claire must have been thinking of me when she snuck this cupcake into the set ;) LOL
I inked up the icing part of the cupcake with VersaMark ink & embossed with fine white embossing powder. After all parts of the cupcake were stamped, I used a S4-116 Standard Circles SM die template to cut/emboss the image then layered it on top of a paper doily cut using a S4-293 Lacey Circles die template.
Thanks for coming by today to have a look at what I have created using Claire's awesomely designed stamps! Would love to know which stamp set is at the top of your faves? You know, the one you just can't live without! That's all I have for today but please be sure to hop on over to see what Claire (Owner), Lisa, Julia, Joan, Lynn, Anya, Bonnie, Jennifer, Belinda, Sandie and Laurie have created surely to get you inspired :) I will be back tomorrow sharing more previews for Day 3.
