A Camellia Trio...WMS August Release Waltz 82

Mona Pendleton | Friday, August 24, 2012 @ 11:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps August Waltz! Today, Claire will be releasing all of the following 9 stamp sets: Light of the World Sentiments, Bright Season, Little Lanterns, Vintage Garden Flowers, Vintage Garden Produce, Camellia, Opera Tags, Vintage Garden Apple blossom Seeds and Vintage Seed Packet in the WMS store. You should have arrived from Belinda's blog, if not you can head on over to Claire's blog where the celebration began and for complete details.

Today I am sharing three rather Clean And Simple cards featuring a combination of stamps from both Camellia and Vintage Seed Packet. I do LOVE alls the bells and whistles but I wanted to showcase one of the many beautiful blossoms and leaves from the Camellia set. No patterned papers, no bows, no buttons, not even one homemade flower!!! No extra postage required to mail this set.



Each blossom is layered on a different Die-namics doily as well as dry embossed backgrounds made using various Sizzix embossing folders. Each card also features a different sentiment. 

The card below features a Camellia blossom stamped on a piece of Sno Cone cardstock layered on a Die-namics Dainty Doily DUO die cut and the sentiment is from Vintage Seed Packet.
I stamped the beautiful Camellia blossom and leaves using VersaMark ink, embossed with fine white embossing powder then trimmed around the edges with a sharp scissors. Here's a close up showing how all the fine detail seems to come to life when heat embossed:
The next card up features a Camellia blossom stamped on a piece of Grapesicle cardstock layered on a Die-namics Dizzy Doily die cut and the sentiment is from Vintage Seed Packet.
and my third card features a Camellia blossom stamped on a piece of Pink Lemonade cardstock layered on a Die-namics Open Scallop Doily DUO die cut and the sentiment is from Camellia
Thanks so much for visiting! To continue with the waltz, please be sure to visit Bonnie's blog.
