Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release Preview, Day 3

Please excuse my late post today!  Hurricane weather threats, Halloween, and a double dose of pink eye (Eva and my Claire!) caused me to crack under the creative pressure!  But I could not let the day end without posting projects with 3 of the 8 sets that Waltzingmouse Stamps will be releasing tomorrow, November 2!!  Today we are showcasing Cabin Plaid (another awesome full-size background), Half Pint Heroes Additions, and Sheriff!

Up first is a Western card featuring Sheriff and Cabin Plaid!  I paired them with papers from October Afternoon's "Sasparilla" Collection and images from the previously-released Back in the Saddle set!  Stamped the cowboys in red and than embossed them with a woodgrain impression plate.

As with all of Claire's images, this super-sized badge embosses like a dream!  My Cabin Plaid was stamped in slate ink and it reminds me so much of flannel.  For the larger backgrounds, I put my stamp on a 6x6 block, place a piece of paper over the top, and smooth over the back with my hand.  I got a perfect impression with dye and pigment inks. 

And now for the adorable Half Pint Heroes Additions set.  I always need boy birthday tags for my daughters when they get invited to birthday parties...

Kept with my red and navy go-to colors!  Paper-pieced the little guy with Sasparilla papers and some Pure Poppy cardstock.  Stamped Cabin Plaid on some die cut stars...I could use that background every DAY!  It's so awesome and realistic!

These DT members are showcasing projects today.  Join us all tomorrow November 2 for our Release Day Blog Waltz starting at 3:00 PM EST!
