October Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #3 81

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, October 6, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | ,

Hi There! Well it's Day #3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps October Previews already - surely you must have some idea of what you NEED from this months release?  All 5 sets will be available for purchase at the Waltzingmouse Stamps web store on Thursday, October 7th at 2:00 pm Eastern. Today, Claire, many of the Waltzingmouse DT & myself will treat you to more samples :)

If you have visited me before, you know how much I love flowers, tags and flourishes of sorts. Keeping that in mind, I created this card & gift jar topper by combining just those things :)
All of Claire's stamps are so easy to mix & match making for a zillion and one combinations - this month's release goes without saying! I used several to create this gift ensemble. The colorful BG paper was stamped using various sized solid Poinsettias & leaves from Big Blooms - Poinsettia (which by the way is overflowing with a multitude of Poinsettia's and "parts" :) The beautiful scripty font BG was stamped with one of the five various font images from Text It . The gorgeous ornate frame was stamped using an image from Holiday Labels No. 14 and the Yuletide BLESSINGS sentiment comes from Compliments of the Season - BOTH sets contain soooo many images!
Holiday Labels No. 14 can be easily and precisely cut/embossed using S4-290 Labels Fourteen and please don't be fooled by the name - these label images are so versatile - you will want to ink them up year round! Since this lil' candy gift set is all about Poinsettias, using a S4-219 Nested Poinsettia die template, I made a 3D bloom to feature in that beautiful ornate frame.
The solid Poinsettia & leaf images are so perfect for stamping on fabric! (click HERE for a tutorial if you are unsure of this technique - it is so easy and I think the results are very becoming ;) The lil' tag is the result of another Compliments of the Season and Holiday Labels No. 14 combo.
That's all I have to share today but please be sure to hop on over to see what Claire (Owner), Lisa, Julia, Joan, Lynn, Anya, Bonnie, Jennifer, Belinda and Sandie have created surely to get you inspired :) I will be back tomorrow at 11:00 am Eastern wrapping the October Release up with the Waltzingmouse DT Waltz.

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope I have presented something of interest to you? :)
Be Sweet!

I absolutely LOVE your work. Not for a second would I have believed that such a wonderful background could be created with just stamps. You rocked it!! The sweet candy cane jar is the perfect compliment to the card.
