Grandma and Roses.......

I am excited to be back for Day Two and bringing you another peek at the wonderful sets that are being released March 1st at Waltzingmouse Stamps!

Follow along with Laurie and I today, and of course don't forget to check out the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog every day, as we show you some of the creations we have made with our new stamp sets!

As you saw on my blog yesterday, one of the stamp sets being released next week is called Vintage Labels No. 3 which is made for, obviously, the Spellbinders Labels 3 Nestabilities. Today I have another peek at the Vintage Labels No. 3 set along with a new set called Roses in Bloom.

Just look at these gorgeous roses! Don't they just look like the wild roses that grow along the fences at the back of the farm??!


Actually, the rose itself consists of three of the stamps all layered together, of course you don't have to layer them, the bottom two layers are on October Afternoon designer paper and the top layer of the rose is a white cardstock layer which I coloured with my copics.

Each layer is popped up on the previous layer and the petals are rounded up a bit by softly folding the petals upwards. Love the look!


The leaves and the background are on new digital papers that will soon be available from Waltzingmouse Stamps - I just couldn't resist using them right now.....Yes.... I get good and giddy with these new supplies!!(You are right Angela lol!)

I added a beautiful Zva Creative Pearl swirl under the rose, and then an oval shape for the sentiment which is also part of the Roses in Bloom stamp set!


The inside of my card also has another sentiment and a little rosebud that is the sweetest thing - totally luscious!

My next card uses the yet-to-be-released Vintage Labels No. 3 stamps.  I chose to cut out the middle and add the circle which was stamped with the Vintage Circles Small and a sentiment from Spring Baskets. The sentiment at the bottom of the card is also from Spring Baskets!

I love the beautiful colours on this card - the plum, aqua and turquoise of this K & Company designer paper is so gorgeous and Easter-y! 

I hope you have a wonderful spring-y day, no matter what the weather!
