Hi there. I hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful previews from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team over the past few days. WMS is releasing 4 new sets today: Woodgrain Backgrounder Set, My Heart, Woodenheart Alphabet, and Ornate Ornaments.
I’m participating in today’s WMS December Release Design Team Blog Waltz. If you found my post by way of Kelly Schirmer’s blog, then you are right on track, but if not, you may want to stop by Claire’s blog for a complete order of the Waltz because by checking and leaving comments on any of the Design Team blogs, you could be the lucky winner of a free new stamp set. There are more details at the end of this post.
Now for my project:
Photographing a clear card has its challenges, and this is especially true when the ink on the clear card is white, but bear with me.
I started with a card base of acetate that I stamped the wood grain background image from the Woodgrain Backgrounder Set using Cotton White Staz-On ink. I backed the interior of the card with Ocean Mist cardstock.
On the front of the card I die cut a piece of patterned paper from the Blossom Soup 6X6 paper pack using my Labels 9 Nestabilities, and using the circle stamp from the Faux Fun Circles set to create the circle.
Here’s a closer look at the layers with a better view of the white wood grain.
Along the bottom of the layers I added a sentiment from the Woodenheart Alphabet set that I stamped in Jet Black and then using VersaMark, I stamped the wood grain image and embossed with clear embossing powder. Beneath the sentiment I stamped the chevron image from the Woodgrain Backgrounder Set in Gray Flannel ink on gray cardstock and finished it off with a bit of teal wool felt and a Prima flower.
That’s it for me today, but I, along with Anya, Kelly, and Belinda, will be back on Monday for more projects showcasing the newly released sets. I know that you will want to continue to“waltz” today along to the next Design Team member, who is Jennifer Holmes. Remember, if you get lost along the way, just pop on over to Claire’s blog for a complete listing of all the DT members. By leaving comments you will have the opportunity to win a free set of choice.
You have until December 4th 5:59 a.m. (CST) to leave your comments at which time we will choose a winner of the free stamp set, which will be announced on Claire’s blog on Wednesday, December 5th.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great time on the waltz and a fabulous day.
