WMS Preview Day One - Yonder Star and Yonder Star Background


Good day and welcome to Day One of Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release! We have three days of release previews along with our regular Release Day Waltz (with prizes!) on Day Four!

Today we are previewing Yonder Star and Yonder Star Backgrounds........


I inked up Yonder Star Background with several complimentary inks - this stamp is a whopper - 4 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches - you can cover a full card front with this baby!

I cut up the the inked sheet of Rustic Cream cardstock into squares and then zigzag sewed them back together with my Janome sewing machine.

A piece of Sweet Blush cardstock was die-cut with a sweet little edge and adhered under the background strips.


The star was embossed onto kraft cardstock with fine white embossing powder and hand cut to pop up onto my base.  After adding the sentiment and some pink sticky back gems - the outcome was more than I had imagined!

Here is a list of the other WMS Designers with their fabulous previews today!

  4. I love what you did with the new background stamp . Cutting up the stamp into pieces what genius. I totally love how that Gorgeous Star turned out with the white embossing. The Star and the sentiment both jump right out at you. It is Fabulous done with the soft pastels and Kraft with white. I truly held my breath as I watched it download on my screen. It truly is a work of Art. I love it!
