July WMS July Previews Day #1 75

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, June 28, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Welcome to July Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #1! Claire will be releasing EIGHT new stamp sets on Friday, July 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 Cameo to Go, Cameo Creations and Ovals, Classic Frames (*main project does not showcase an image from the Ovals, Classic Frames but the collection of cameos shown below does*).   
Today I am sharing a small paper mache house that I decorated turning it into an elegant gift box full of toiletries for a house guest:

(Note: you can rotate this image 360 degrees by doing the following... Within the photo, click and drag your mouse pointer to the left or right to spin the box! You can also use the left and right arrows on your keyboard or use the left and right arrows icons. You can also zoom in or out to get a better view of the box by using the (+) and (-) icons. Lastly, you can simply press the Play icon (circular arrow) to rotate the box automatically. Give it a try!)

To create the tag, I stamped a darling sweet girl image from Cameo Creations, using the dryer sheet technique I cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Standard Circles LG die template, layered with on top of a doily and label that features the for YOU sentiment from stamped in the lower right hand corner.
Here's a peek from above:
Don't you think this a fab way to dress up a little bottle? 
All of these sets are FULL of so many images that can be easily mixed and matched so I stamped a few variations to give you an idea of the endless combinations as well as a few different cutting tools that used:
My inspiration for this project came from the complimentary room toiletries provided by the Riverside Mission Inn that my sweet hubby photographed for me while we were there on a recent stay:
That wraps it up for today ~ I will be back tomorrow with Day#2 previews. Thanks for looking! For some awesome inspiration, please be sure to see what Claire and the rest of the Waltzingmouse DT have created:

I've been thinking for a while what to write.
Somehow I have the feeling that I can't come up with a comment that I didn't wrote before....
But I had to leave a comment; although I am drooling over this. I already cleaned my desk :)
Looking at this I almost forgot to breathe. Yes; breathtaking. It made me think of that amazing book you made for Scott last Christmas. Another reason to faint :)
You could say that I am in love with this; STUNNING!!!!!!
