May WMS Previews Day #1 78

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, April 28, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to May Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #1! Claire will be releasing FIVE new stamp sets on Sunday, May 1st & for the next 3 days, Claire, the Waltzingmouse DT & myself will be sharing some awesome samples of inspiration showcasing these amazing stamps!  Today, we are all previewing Gingham & Co. while focusing on projects for those special women in life known as Moms or Mothers :)

First up, I made a card using one of the gingham images to create some background paper: (shown on the left & right sides):
Gingham & Co. set not only contains various gingham images but an awesome "solid" polka dot stamp! I inked up the polka dot stamp with SU Pretty In Pink ink then used a couple of die templates to create a butterfly embellishment:
My second card features a polka dot rose with gingham leaves:
To make the rose, I stamped the polka dot image followed by the rose then, I paper pieced the rose and added a brad to the center. I created the gingham leaves by stamping a gingham image from Gingham & Co. then using several leaf dies from Spellbinders™ Nested Leaves.
That wraps it up for today. Thanks for looking! For some awesome inspiration, please be sure to see what Claire and the rest of the Waltzingmouse DT have created:


Hope you stop by tomorrow to what I have to share for the May Waltzingmouse Stamps Preview Day #2. Be Sweet :)
