Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release, Day 1

Hello there!

Today I am happy to bring you Day 1 of the countdown for the November Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps. We had a slight schedule adjustment for the US Thanksgiving holiday, but now we are back to the normal countdown with previews continuing through December 1 and the release on December 2nd.

So for the next four days the Design Team will be sharing previews of two new stamp sets that will be available for purchase on December 2nd. I know I say some variation of this every release, but this month's sets are truly some of my most favorite EVER. Just you wait.

Today's previews are of the Old Country Roses set. This set features multi-stamp rose images to build gorgeous cabbage roses. It is OUTSTANDING!

With a variety of bloom and leaf sizes in this set, the images can easily stand on their own. Any more, I am a big fan of creating cards with no particular sentiment on the front. I need that versatility, and this could easily go from a get well, to a hello, to a birthday, to a thank you card.

Seriously, people. Those roses.

Each bloom features three layers, and they are super easy to line up. Just match up the centers of each flower and don't worry about the outsides. They just fall perfectly to create that full flower! I particularly like the look of them stamped on colored cardstock.

This card also features the lone sentiment in the set, along with the previously released Pretty Panel #2 Die.

Cut files will be available with this month's release, but the flowers are pretty easy to cut out on their own (plus, my Cameo is buried deep in a closet of boxes.. I'll be moving in for years).

Claire will be sharing more details about the cut files on the WMS Blog, Also, don't forget that each day of the previews will be highlighted on the WMS Inspiration Blog if you'd like to catch everything in one spot. But if I were you, I'd head on over to visit these other lovely ladies, who have created some gorgeous projects for today!

Anya Schrier - you are here!

  1. While both these cards are lovely, I especially love the peachy coral blooms. This is a must have set, and I have only seen your preview so far!

  2. These are absolutely gorgeous! I do like the beautiful roses and simple sentiment. Fab!

  3. Love these roses....they look so full and detailed! Great cards :)

  4. Loving the first one the most - the color along with the stripes and bit of lace is so striking. Such a contrast to the pastel soft look on the second.


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