Good morning bloggers!! Today is Day 3 of Waltzing Mouse Stamps previews - I hope you are enjoying what the DT are creating. Don't forget that tomorrow there will a release day Blog Waltz with prizes!!
The stamp sets I've used on my creations today are Holiday Labels 14, Compliments of the Season, Text It & Big Blooms - Poinsettias.
First up - A bottle tag made using the Labels 14 Nesties - yes, they landed on my doorstep yesterday!!!!!! :D
I used 3 different sized dies to make this. The largest one for the cardstock and the patterned layer on the bottom. On the middle piece I used Text It stamped with Bundled Sage distress ink and the smallest layer is stamped using one of the Holiday Labels 14 stamps and a sentiment from Compliments of the Season.
Next up - A Christmas card using Compliments of the Season & Big Blooms - Poinsettias.
I went waaaaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone here and made my own background. The jury is still out on whether I'm happy with it or not.
I took a plain brown cardstock, a snowflakes stamp from the Compliments of the Season set, white chalk ink and got to work.. very apprehensively!! lol.
If you were on Claire's blog yesterday you will see the tutorial on how to layer the poinsettia, I loved the idea so I've done my own version of it. I stamped the image out 4 times using brown momento ink onto My Minds Eye 'Bella Bella' papers. I then inked the edges quite well and added stickles to the very edge. The stickles absorbs the colour of the ink and really makes it stand out.
I've done the centre of the flower using self adhesive flat backed yellow pearls and I also added white pearls to the centres of all the snowflakes.
