Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Previews, Day 1

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps September previews!  Claire will be releasing 8 new stamp sets on Thursday, September 19th.  Today we are going stylish instead of spooky (those are coming up soon!).  She has designed some beautiful sets with her own fun twist.  Today we are showcasing Putting on the Ritz, Art Deco Backgrounders, and Opera Tags Christmas!

Up first is a party on a card created with Putting on the Ritz and Art Deco Backgrounders. I used anything and everything that I could find that was glitzy and glamorous, sparkly and shimmery!


First, I embossed the Art Deco Backgrounders with silver powder on black cardstock.


I embossed the glamour gal for Putting on the Ritz in silver as well, but then did the circular element onto the black cardstock with A Muse Studio's Diamond embossing powder.  Added some champagne bubbles and a feather ;)!  The sentiment is embossed in silver and then the frame is detailed with some Sakura Stardust pen.  I added a silvery "marquis" mat around the entire embossed piece using American Crafts Charcoal Glitter cardstock.  I wish you could see the effect in person, it looks like it's made out of real silver!!

Up next is a Christmas card featuring Opera Tags Christmas, a new set that coordinated with Claire's previously released custom Spellbinders Nestabilities set "Opera Tags."


Claire said she envisioned the tags in red, and ohhh me TOO!  I made a background using the previously released set Festive Foliage embossed in white.  Added some red gem berries.


For the tag, I also embossed the holly leaf outlines from Festive Foliage and cut them out to add to the top of the tag.  The beautiful sentiment is from Opera Tags Christmas, as well.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for more fun sets.  Until then, off you go to see these Design Team members and their fabulous creations...
