Hi there! Welcome to Day #2 of the October Waltzinmouse Stamps previews! Today, Claire, several members of the Waltzingmouse DT and myself will be sharing projects featuring the new fun Nordic Winter stamp set. NOTE: With Claire's blessings, I've included a peek of what's to come tomorrow!
What? No manufactured patterned paper??? You must read on! I LOVE the versatility of Waltzingmouse Stamps ~ not only are they fabulous for card making but may easily be used when creating home decor, gift packages and scrapbook layouts AND so many of them may be mixed and matched! With that being said, today, I have two types of projects to share. First up is a layout. When I first saw the images for Nordic Winter, I immediately thought of a warm and cozy winter ski sweater like the one Connor is wearing in the Christmas photo shown below. This stamp set if full of quite a variety of stamps making it a very versatile stamp set. Using the 2 lined small heart image, I stamped the heart patterned paper on the left hand side and I combined several images to stamp the decorative paper that the photo is layered on top of. After lining up the stamps on the stamp block grid, I inked them up using VersaMark ink, stamped then embossed using fine white powder revealing all the beautiful decorative design:
Vintage Ornaments featuring the "GOODWILL" label from Seasonal Remedies that was introduced yesterday and the three other (Kraft, Red and medium sized Green) are a peek at what is to come tomorrow!!! I couldn't resist inking them up and using them on this LO as they coordinate fabulously with Nordic Holidays!

Here's a look at how I stamped the lovely heart patterned paper which was soooo easy:
