Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release Preview, Day 2

We're back with another awesome preview for Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Claire will be releasing 4 new stamp sets this Saturday, December 1st!

Today is an adorable set after my own folk art heart...and it just happens to be called My Heart!  It coordinates perfectly with the Woodgrain Backgrounder set featured yesterday.  Claire also designed a sweet Woodenheart Alphabet set to include messages inside the hearts!

My first project uses the My Heart set combined with the large background image from the Woodgrain Backgrounder set.


Claire mentioned that these hearts were created with those "park trees" in mind.  You know the ones where people etch their initials to declare their love for one another?  Hee!  I tried to recreate the look by stamping the Woodgrain Backgrounder and cutting a heart shape with my craft knife out of the center.  I then ran some sandpaper all around the inside edges.


I wanted the heart to appear as if it was etched inside the wood.  I stamped and clear embossed two hearts and added a sentiment from the My Heart set.  The ink I used for the Woodgrain Backgrounder just happens to be called "Birch"!

I had to use another favorite heart from the set on a little Christmas tag.  A quick little design that will be perfect if I need to make more for last minute gifts...


I stamped two other hearts from the set and added a sentiment from Seasons of Love-Tags.  I die cut an ornament shape using Spellbinders 2011 Ornament Nestabilities and then added the little hanger image from Claire's coordinating 2011 Holiday Ornaments stamps set.  

I'll be back tomorrow to feature a really gorgeous new set!  Now stop and see what heartfelt creations these DT members created for today!
