Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release, Day 2

Good Morning!

Today I am happy to bring you Day 2 of the countdown for the August Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps. If you missed my previews for Day 1, you can check the post out here.

Nine new sets will be available for purchase on August 10, and we will be sharing previews until then.

Today, I am so excited to tell you about three new gorgeous floral sets. I don't know about you, but I can always use a fabulous floral. Today Funky Florals, Two Step Sprig, and Simple Sprig are on deck.

I love stepped stamping, especially with florals - you know, where you build your flowers piece by piece. The Two Step Sprig set is just this, with petals, accents, the inside bits all separate little stamps that you can combine for beautiful depth.

For this card, I stamped the leaves then trimmed off the edge of the cardstock, leaving a few of the petals extending off the side. I stamped the flowers separately, cutting them out and adhering them to the leaves with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from Compact Sentiments. The card base was stamped with another new release - a new background - and you'll see more of that one tomorrow.

My next card uses just one image from the Funky Florals set. I took this one leaf and stamped it repeatedly in different shades of green to create a background. I added some pops of color by throwing in some pink leaves and topped it off with a sentiment from another new set. I feel a little bad using just one leaf in this set - there are some gorgeous flowers in this one that are still dying to see ink.

That's it for me today, we will be sharing previews through Friday and the sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, so be sure to stop by tomorrow to see more of the August release. Here are the rest of the Design Team links for today. Enjoy!

  1. These cards are SO pretty! I love the colors on the first and how the leaves go over the edge! The repeated pattern with pops of color are fab on the 2nd!!

  2. Beautiful, Anya! I love the leaf card...never would think to grab it and stamp it like that for a modern background...and in pink, eek! Looks so amazing! Love the softness of the yellows and oranges on the first card. The stamped background looks just like patterned paper :)!

  3. Beautiful Anya! I love the background of leaves you created, and the first with the orange flowers is yummy. It looks so neat that some of the leaves are double stamped and others aren't - and how you fussy cut the edge! It drew my eye immediately!

  4. This card is so pretty. I just love the color combo....thanks for sharing!

  5. Gorgeous cards. I am absolutely in love with the first one!

  6. Both are gorgeous, Anya! LOVE all the details on your first card--the extended leaves and how only some are double stamped, the popped up flowers and the wonderful background stamping. Very stylish design with the single leaf--love the pops of pink!

  7. Fabulous card, really love what you have done with it - and the colours you have chosen!

  8. I adore the leaf background and those beautiful pastel colors! Super job!

  9. Clean, simple AND beautiful!

  10. These are great. I especially LOVE the one with the leaf in lots of colours - simply perfect!

  11. So pretty Anya, love those funky leaves!


Thank you for stopping by - I love to hear from you!
