Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Preview, Day 2

Back for another preview for Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Claire will be releasing 9 new sets on Wednesday, February 29th!  Today we are featuring projects with two of the new sets... Florentine Frippery and Nordic Spring!


Florentine Frippery is a set full of delicate scrolls and unique sentiments that are so sweet like this one ..."Verily I thank thee."  :)  I stamped and cut my frame image with a standard square nestie, then cut a larger window into the patterned paper. The papers are from the My Mind's Eye "Blush" Collection.


I stamped the heart in pink ink, and then traced the scrolls with my Sakura Stardust glitter pen to make them shimmer.  The outside frame is heat embossed with silver powder.  I can just imagine the sweet creations that all of you out in blogland will make with this set!!

Next up is the very sweet cousin of Nordic Winter...it's Nordic Spring!  Claire was one step ahead of all of us, and created this one before we even had to ask!


Such sweet images in this set...the tulips really make me smile!  This strip is one image, but I was able to ink up the stems and flowers separately with those mini VersaMagic inks.  Then I went back and added the blue heart separately.  The bluebirds are stamped on a nestie label 10 that I stamped with the coordinating image from the previously- released set Very Vintage Labels No. 10.  The sentiment is from Spring Baskets.  Oh, and I  finally squeaked some gingham onto a project!

Speaking of gingham, I made one last little tag with Nordic Spring because I always seem to need one!


I stamped the little flower image 3 times and then pieced it together so that the flower, leaves, and vase were different colors.  The bottom is stamped with WMS Gingham & Co.. in a really delicious ink called "Toffee" from A Muse Studio.  Used the petite scalloped circle and standard circle nesties for the top and adhered them to a PTI Tag Sale #5 die cut.  A few vintage buttons from my stash, and that's a wrap until tomorrow!

Ready to see more of these fabulous sets?
