Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release Preview, Day 1

Claire has put together an outstanding release for the holidays with 8 wonderful sets to be released this Friday, November 2!  She has created Christmas sets the likes that have never been seen in stamp land!  Today we are previewing 2 sets, Yonder Star and Yonder Star Background.  Claire has decided to create full-size acrylic backgrounds in her wonderful and unique patterns!


Up first is a wine bottle wrapped in some festive red burlap and decorated with images from Yonder Star.  I have seen the Head Moustress herself do a fancy cascading tag, and wanted to try one out myself!


I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a Small Labels Nestie.  Stamped the stars in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with white powder.  Added some gingham ribbon from May Arts and a few rusty jingle bells and now I have the perfect hostess gift to bring to a holiday shindig :)

Next up is  Yonder Star paired with Yonder Star Background...


I stamped the image and sentiment from Yonder Star on Rustic Cream cardstock.  Then I made a little kraft wreath with the Martha Stewart branch punch.  I was going for a patina finish for the background.  I stamped Yonder Star Background in VersaMark ink on this cool blue paper from The Paper Loft.  I sprinkled clear embossing powder on randomly, and then went back and added some copper embossing powder in spots where the clear "missed."


After heat embossing it, I got a very fun effect!  A little bit textured like denim, and a little bit shiny to complete the rustic look!

Cannot even wait to use these sets again!  You'll probably be seeing them throughout my release projects...they are very addicting!  Now off you go to see the rest of the Design Team Members' projects!

I love your tag, Kelly! But I must say, your card has stolen my heart. It made me gasp! Everything about it is perfect - the colors, the embossing, the wreath. Wow!!

What a neat way to use the embossing powder Kelly! Wow, I never would have thought to use two colors like that, such a gorgeous effect. Love the added pine branches and your red/black Yonder stars look beautiful on the red burlap bag!
