WMS October Release - Day 1

{This is my second post of the day. To see my Serendipity Stamps DT challenge post, please scroll down or click here!}

Hello there, my friends!

Can you believe it is already time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps release? Six new sets are being released on October 15 - Claire is pushing the schedule to get these babies out to you, and you won't be sorry!! Today we are sharing previews of Seasonal Remedies, a holiday version to follow up the very popular Rescue Remedies!

The set features a variety of labels designed around Christmas and other holiday sentiments, and of course they coordinate with Spellbinders dies! How about some projects?

To create the focal point of this card, I started by heat embossing the Joy label onto Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped it again using purple ink and then cut out the letters. Then I embossed it onto melon cardstock and cut out the little banners. The bold, graphic features of this particular label made this paper piecing easy. I layered it onto a doily that had been swiped with white ink then onto another piece of cardstock that had been stamped with a snowflake image from another new set we'll share later this week.

Here is some treat packaging. Starting with a plain brown paper bag, I stamped a variety of the label images with Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. This really helped to add something to the packaging without overwhelming the design. Then I stamped the snowflake label (yep, a perfect companion to the label image from Very Vintage Christmas) and die cut it using the coordinating Spellbinders label die. The Goodwill sentiment was stamped in the interior of the label.

I created a patterned paper band for the top of the bag and then tied a bow with grosgrain ribbon. I used some other holiday fixins, including a berry sprig and rusty jingle bells, and together with my tag, adhered them to my bag with a clothespin. These tags are awesome, my dears. The detail is just amazing and exactly what you'd expect from WMS!

My last card for today features another of the square labels... and perhaps images from another set we'll showcase later this week. ;)

This is a favorite color combination of mine for the holidays - I just love red and teal together. Again, this label was stamped twice: once in navy and again in red. I then cut out the center portion of the red image and adhered it to the navy. These labels, of course, would also be stunning colored in and I can't wait to hop around to the other Design Team ladies to see what wonders they created! I'll end there for today.. what do you think so far?

I will be back tomorrow with more previews, I hope you will stop back! Until then, here are the other Design Team ladies sharing previews today! Enjoy!

Have a great day!
