Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Preview, Day 3

Another fun day of previews featuring the Gift Card It stamp set which will be released at Waltzingmouse Stamps this Friday, February 28th.

Today we are showcasing the images in the Gift Card It stamp set.   They are great for all kinds of cards or projects!


Claire always has a way with sentiments, and this one has to be one of the cutest she has ever created!  I encircled it (hee) with the lovely vine frame image from Gift Card It, which I think goes perfectly with the hearts from My Heart.


I heat embossed the Gift Card It vine in white and then cut a frame out of the center using the largest die in the Spellbinders Deckled Edge Nestabilities Small set.  I stamped the sentiment, then ran the piece through my cuttlebug with a woodgrain embossing plate from A Muse Studio.  Added a loop twine bow to keep with the rustic (and encircled) theme :).

Then it was time for a tag!  I just love these teeny flowers from Gift Card It and they are stamped along with another beautiful sentiment from the set.  It's so sweet!


I made a layered tag using Maile's idea as inspiration (without the cutting of the bottom edge :)).  My favorite color is yellow and with this constant snow and COLD, I could use a little sunshine in my life right about now!  I embossed the flowers with white powder, then colored them in with yellow and orange watercolor pencils and water. The leaves are colored with a plain white pencil.

Don't forget tomorrow is RELEASE day!  Stay tuned to Claire's blog for details regarding the Gift Card It stamp set and dies, contests, etc.  We will all be back tomorrow with the traditional release day blog hop beginning at 2:00 PM EST.

Now let's see how the other DT members featured the lovely images from the Gift Card It stamp set today!
