***I have two posts today ~ if you are looking for my Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful post, either click HERE or continue to scroll down. Thank You :)***Happy August 1st! Here today with the August Waltzingmouse Stamps S.O.A.P. Day #1 share! To freshen your memory Claire, Owner/Designer of Waltzingmouse Stamps will be releasing new stamp sets every other month with the exception to this month! Claire will be releasing TWO fun Halloween stamp sets: Gracie at Halloween & Cicely at Halloween. Since August is an “off” month Claire and many of the DT members will be sharing projects for the next four days, including today, reviewing last month’s release sets: Flourishes - Stamps and Dots, You're Lovely, Cameo Creations, Cameo To Go, Eat Cake, Big Day - Additions, Big Day - Essentials and an "oldie but goldie" set on the 4th day :) The "off" months are referred to as S.O.A.P. ~ Stamps Of Approval Parade.
Today, I am sharing two similar cards and a mini tutorial using a combination of images from Cameo Creations, Faux Fun Circles, Teeny Trees and Rescue Remedies:
Postage stamps are such a timeless treasure and ANY and EVERY thing related to postage is in high demand these days! Who hasn't torn off a pretty postage stamp from an envelope at some point in their life and said "oooo this is a keeper?" :) LOL
I created a few VERY CAS cards. One "girly":
Cameo Creations, Faux Fun Circles and Rescue Remedies along with various colored inks. The background was embossed using a Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder. A perfect backdrop for my WM Cameo Postage stamps don't you think?
In case you would like a bit more detailed tutorial, here you go:
You need the Cuttlebug die shown below unless you have a Spellbinders one already, inks of your choice (I used SU Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral), solid circle image from Faux Fun Circles, $1 image from Rescue Remedies and the cameo image from Cameo Creations:
I die cut the postage stamp shape, stamped the circle image from Faux Fun Circles using SU Blush Blossom ink followed with the cameo image from Cameo Creations using SU Cameo Coral ink then, distressed the edges using Ranger Vintage Photo ink:
I finished it off by stamping the $1 image from Rescue Remedies:
