Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Previews, Day 2

Today we are previewing two of the nine new stamp sets to be released this Friday, August 24th...AND there is even more fabulous news!  Claire is releasing her first set of dies and coordinating images...and the dies are manufactured by SPELLBINDERS, yippee!  To find out all of the details for this release, go to Claire's blog HERE (not to mention she has begun to share samples and they are be-aut-ti-ful)!!

The first set is called Opera Tags and it's creative, and fancy, and fabulous!  The coordinating Nestabilities are amazing!  I decided to make a Halloween card with one of the tags...


Paired the tag image from Opera Tags (it cuts like a DREAM with the new Nesties!) with a sentiment and bats from the previously-released set Midnight Feast.  The spooky witch and spider are from Halloween Party.  Added some sparkly orange tulle and some potion bubbles to the mix.

The next set today is a most beautiful floral one called Camellia.


Not only do you get a gorgeous array of Camellias, but there are lovely sentiments a plenty in this set, too.  I love this paper from Simple Stories called "Fabulous" and colored my Camellia to match the sweet flowers.


The flower is so dreamy to layer up!  I stamped it 3 times and used dimensionals when I paper-pieced it back together.

I can't wait to hop around and see what these DT members are featuring today!  Before I go, I wanted to say thanks to you all for always leaving me such lovely comments when you stop by!

Fall is in the air and I love the Halloween card you made. So excited that Claire is going to put her unique and wonderful creative "eye" to the making of lovely dies for us all to play with. Love that she started with tags!

And your next card with the camellia is stunning! Love how you layered it up and colored it such a lovely color. These bloom all over my neighborhood in the spring when you are so excited for new life. I just love them!

Love your projects today...so happy to see all the Halloween images coming out onto the blogs, and this one is divine, and such a great way to use this Opera Tag! The way that witch is pointing her finger, it looks as if she is really daring me!

Your Camellia project is so fresh and fun with those cheerful patterned papers and your flourish bits of bling. Truly beautiful!

The Halloween card caused me to gasp out loud and scare my teenage son, LOL. I LOVE it (hence the dramatic gasp). {grin}
