WMS October Release Day Three

Hi there! Have you been enjoying the new release previews so far? If you haven't been following along, Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing five new stamp sets tomorrow. Claire and the rest of the DT have been sharing previews of the new sets since Monday, and what amazing previews they have been!

Today I am previewing Text It, Claire's take on the popular text background. This set contains five different, delicious fonts! And in true WMS fashion, the stamps are large enough to easily cover a card front without having to match up the ends. So easy!

I have a friend who recently celebrated her fall birthday.. I picked up a cute ceramic pumpkin candle holder and wanted to create some coordinating packaging for her gift. Using the different stamps from Text It and the Leaves #2 Die from Sizzix, here's what I came up with!

I certainly have been loving creating gift bags recently! This one is larger than I normally share, almost 8 inches across. I stamped the gothic font (which I adore) onto a strip of cream cardstock and added some stitching and Distress Ink. The leaves were cut from various cardstock and then stamped with one of the script fonts from the set. A coordinating button was added to each of those. I used the same products for the tag, layering a few different fonts, some velvet ric-rac, and another leaf that I stamped with a sentiment from the Compliments of the Season set. Here's a close up for you.

I found the fun little clothespin in the office section of Walmart. Did you know that you could use Distress Inks to color your clothespins? Yep!

While I had everything out, I also created a card. I took cues directly from my bag, and this cutie came together in just a few minutes!

I just adore those rich colors. The sentiment is from Bountiful Baskets Additions.

I love fall! So that's what I have for today, here are the other DT members sharing previews today:

Tomorrow is the new release Blog Waltz - the fun begins on the WMS Blog tomorrow at 2:00 pm EST. I hope to see you there!

Have a great day!
