Waltzingmouse Stamps June Release, Day 2

Good Morning!

Welcome back to the Waltzingmouse Stamps June Release countdown.

Claire and the Design Team are sharing previews of the eight new sets that will be available for purchase on June 30. Today, four sets are being previewed. I am sharing a sneak peek of Funky Feathers and the Crackle Background.

Funky Feathers is fabulous! The set has a handful of different feather images that tend towards the retro modern styling. They are a new favorite.

A peacock feather. Swoon! Stamped in rainbow colors makes it even more wonderful. I can't wait to use this set more - these feathers just scream to be made into beautiful background paper.

I layered my rainbow feathers onto a piece of silver glitter cardstock so it just peeks out the bottom. This was adhered to my gray card base that was stamped with the full size Crackle Background. A fun, fun pattern.

My next card was inspired by a pillow I saw on Pinterest.

While this didn't turn out quite like I had envisioned it, I do love the resist ink technique with the Crackle Background. I started by inking up a piece of cardstock with a little Antique Linen DI. Then I stamped and clear heat embossed the Crackle Background (just like yesterday's card). I trimmed the cardstock into three strips and then inked each of them with a different Distress Ink color. I liked the earthy palette on the pillow, so I pulled similar colors for my card. The feathers were stamped and trimmed, and as a final touch, I added a row of tiny gold pearls to each feather. This little touch totally made it for me, and changed the whole feel of the card. It is growing on me.

So that's it for me today - you will definitely be seeing more of these Funky Feathers from me!

The DT will be sharing previews through Saturday and the sets will be available for purchase on Sunday, so be sure to stop by tomorrow to see more of the June release. Here are the rest of the Design Team links for today. Enjoy!
