May WMS Previews Day #2 63

Mona Pendleton | Friday, April 29, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to May Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #2! 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 focusing on the NEW Join Us stamp set.

First up, I made a Thank You card:
I created a label using a single motif image from the Join Us set. First, I cut/embossed a label using a Labels Four die template, then I stamped the THANK YOU sentiment followed with a beautiful motif image above and below the sentiment. I inked up a gingham image from Gingham & Co. to create a piece of patterned paper.
Next, I made a dinner date invite by combining a few sentiments from Join Us:
I didn't count the number of images in the Join Us set but let me tell you there is a BUNCH that can be so easily mixed and matched making the possibilities endless! Such a versatile set! I showcased the sentiment on a Very Vintage Labels No. 10 label that coordinates perfectly with a Spellbinders™ Labels Ten die template.
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:
