Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release Preview, Day 1

Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing FOUR awesome new stamp sets this Saturday, December 1st!  Claire has designed sets that can be used at Christmas time...and beyond!  I was so excited when they arrived at my mailbox :)

I made a card today featuring the fabulous new Woodgrain Backgrounder set.  Now this one is special!  Claire has not only included a full-sized woodgrain background in the set, but also some adorable woodgrain elements that coordinate!


Sooo realistic, isn't it?!  I paired the large Woodgrain Backgrounder with my favorite Santa silhouette from the previously-released Santa's Coming to Town.  That little leafy branch (LOVE) is from another new set that we will be featuring tomorrow...I just couldn't stop myself from using it on my Rustic Santa card.


See the little woodgrain pieces? Like that awesome hexagon (that coordinates with the new Spellbinders Hexagon Nestabilities)...and the sweet banner!  I stamped the "Ho Ho Ho" sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet in the center.

I will be back tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday featuring some more new sets, and then we will all join in for the traditional Release Day Blog Waltz on Saturday.  Some of the Design Team Members will also be featuring these new sets next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as well.

Now it's time to go and see...
