Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release Previews, Day 3

Oh the day is almost here at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Tomorrow on Saturday, August 10... Claire will be releasing 9 new stamp sets in the store!  Be sure to watch her blog tomorrow HERE for competition information, more samples, as well as the full reveal of the sets!

Today we are previewing 3 more new sets...(4 if you count a teeny mini)!  They are:  Zig-Zag Backgrounder, Pinstripe Backgrounder (and a Mini Pinstripe Backgrounder), and Big Day-Today!

I decided to pair another new set, Funky Flowers with the Zig-Zag Backrounder and a gorgeous sentiment from Big Day-Today!  We've all been waiting for more sentiments in the lovely fonts of Big Day-Essentials and Big Day-Additions and Claire created such versatile ones!


A big of a wild color scheme for me!  I am a bit obsessed with white embossing powder lately.  So I heat embossed the Zig-Zag Backgrounder in white on Raspberry Fizz cardstock.  Then, I also embossed the Funky Flowers on colored cardstocks (Raspberry Fizz, A Muse Studio Buttercup yellow, and the leaves in Hawaiian Shores).



It's a bit hard to see but after embossing the flowers, I then covered them with Stickles and added pink rhinestones to the center.  Also made my own little piece of glitter tape by "Stickling up" some coordinating cardstock cut into a very thin strip.

Next the new nautical set Ocean Bound paired with a sweet sentiment from Big Day-Today and the Pinstripe Backgrounder (it's sooo awesome)!!


I love the soft look of the stripes.  They are stamped in A Muse Studio's Seattle ink, such a soft warm gray!


So be SURE to come back tomorrow at 2:00 PM EST for the traditional Release Day Blog Hop with the whole Design Team!
