WMS October/November Release Day 2

Hi there!

I am back with Day 2 of the countdown to the October/November Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps! This month, 8 new sets are being released, and will be available for purchase in the WMS Store on November 2nd.

Today we have two more sets to share, Vintage Christmas Background and Compliments of the Season 2.

I used both together for today's cards. First up, elegant Christmas.

Black, cream and gold is such a classy combination. The sentiment is from Compliments of the Season 2, a follow up to the fabulous Compliments of the Season. I embossed it in gold and die cut it with a scalloped oval die. Then I stamped the same sentiment in black, die cut it with the oval and trimmed out just the sentiment portion.

This design would actually be quite easy to mass produce if you're looking for an idea for your holiday cards. The background design looks so complicated, but with the new Vintage Christmas Background it was so simple. I'm a big fan!

Next up is some fun with embossing.

I mixed in some of the images from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers with this one. The Vintage Christmas Background was embossed in white on kraft cardstock. The sentiment is another from Compliments of the Season 2, and was also embossed. I love how bold and clear they turned out - these stamps are excellent I tell you!

Well, that's it for me today. Here are the links to the rest of the DT ladies:

See you tomorrow. Have a great day!
