WMS Preview Day One - Woodgrain Backgrounder Set

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

Today we are previewing Woodgrain Backgrounder Set.....

For my first card I am showing you the big backgrounder - there are six lovely images in this backgrounder set!

I stamped the large background stamp with Jellybean ink onto Jellybean cardstock, and then, using a die, I cut it into three pieces. I then put it all back together, adhering it onto Fine Linen cardstock.

The sentiment is from Teeny Trees and is stamped onto the banner stamp which I fussy cut out of Vintage Cream cardstock.

I added some Prima ribbon flowers along with some gorgeous sheer ribbon from Ribbon Carousel, Divine Twine and a Spring Moss Button.

My second couple of cards are the same - but different :)

I used one of the stamps from the Woodgrain Backgrounder Stamp Set for the background, choosing to stamp in Winter Wisteria and Hawaiian Shores. 

I added a cupcake sentiment plus a shiny die cut for a special celebration effect!

Be sure to take a look at the other designer's fabulous creations today. We also have some of our other designers showcasing their sets on the 4th , 5th and 6th of December - WOWZERS!! a whole week of WMS - how wonderful!!
