Waltzingmouse Stamps April Release Previews Day One

It's Waltzingmouse Stamps previews time and today the design team are showcasing an absolutely FABULOUS set of stamps. I {heart} these stamps so much, it's not even funny. Actually, it is kind of is funny because, for the past few days, at my house, we are all about 'I say old Bean...' in our best uppercrust voices. Wonder how long before we bore each other silly :P

Anywhoooo.. today's preview set is My Kind of Guy - and I had a lot of fun playing with it. 

On my first card I used what have to be my absolute FAVOURITE sentiments (ask me again in 2 weeks after I've been driven crazy by the teen saying "I say old Bean....." :/ ). I started with a kraft card base and used foam tape between the base and the white card for a little dimension. The border has been stamped out with SU Mellow Moss and for everything else I used Archival Ink. I also layered on the bowler hat image with 3D foam. To embellish I added some pearls and a button. 


For my second card I used some patterned papers from my 'I have no clue what brand these are' drawer. I liked the colours. I stamped out the frame and sentiment to coordinate. I used distress inks - Spiced Marmalade & Faded Jeans - and also Rich Cocoa Memento. To embellish I've added some pearls, die cut flourishes and buttons flossed with button twine. 


My third card .. this is one I saw on Pinterest recently and thought it was a wonderful idea so I CASE'd it. It works so well with the sentiment - I'm thinking this would be perfect for a groom ;) 

I am so happy with this card that you would think I came up with the idea, lol. 


All of my cardstock, apart from the Kraft, is from Papermill Direct

Well that's it from me.. below you can find the list of ladies who are also showcasing My Kind of Guy today....
