Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release, Day 1

Good Morning!

Today I am happy to bring you Day 1 of the countdown for the May Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps.

For the next three days we will be sharing previews of a new stamp set and coordinating dies that will be available for purchase on May 3.

Today we are focusing on the Tag Collection 1 Stamp Set.

For this card, I used the large 'Enjoy' frame to create a bold graphic design. I started by first stamping the plain rectangle image from My Island. It was just about the same size as the sentiment, and I used it to add some color to background. So for the green frame, I stamped it in light green then stamped right over it with the 'Enjoy' frame from Tag Collection 1 in a darker shade. I repeated this twice more in a bold pink and yellow.

The 'For You' is also from Tag Collection 1. The black card base was stamped with the Pinstripe Backgrounder and clear embossed. Some black buttons help to bring it all together.

For my second card, the 'A Little Something' banner from Tag Collection 1 is the star of the show. I stamped it first in the center of my cardstock and then lightly traced an oval around it. I used various flower images from Funky Flowers and Simple Sprig to create a rich floral frame for the sentiment. I stamped the banner a second time and cut out the sentiment parts, adhering them with some foam tape for a bit of dimension.

So that is it for me today. I hope you like what you've seen so far. I'll be back with more tomorrow, but until then be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team links for today. We will be sharing previews through Saturday when the sets will be available for purchase. Enjoy!
