Waltzingmouse Stamps Preview - Day Two

Oh yes....good morning and welcome to MY turn (lol!) to preview Waltzingmouse Stamps new sets today!

Actually I think all of us are previewing today so you are in for quite a treat!

Today I am giving you a preview of three sets that are being released on May 1st - Picnic Patterns, Words of Wisdom, and Very Vintage Labels 10 - to match the Spellbinders Dies - whoop whoop!!

I love the look of Hawaiian Shores on kraft cardstock and so I took this wonderful opportunity to make up a card with just those colours!

The bottom of the front panel is stamped with one of the backgrounds from Picnic Patterns - such a fun set - as are all the background sets.

I stamped the Very Vintage Labels 10 stamp, cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels Ten die - perfect match! and then stamped the sentiment from Words of Wisdom in Hawaiian Shores - absolutely love it!

I distressed around the edges with my Heidi Swapp edge distresser but your fingernail would work just as well.

To tell you the truth, I was looking for a piece of twine that I had just cut, and I found the edge distresser under a bunch of scrap cardstock just about the time I was wondering whether to distress the card with my already broken fingernail or not - I decided that must definitely be a sign that I should distress... lol! Never did find the twine.....

Take a run around to look at Julia, Belinda, Anya, Laurie, Jennifer, and Lynn's designs - you are in for a wonderful time!! Oh dear, and don't forget about Claire - and give her a {hug} because she is not feeling the greatest.....
