Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Previews Day One

Good morning! Today we kick off Day One of Waltzingmouse Stamps September release previews and we have THREE amazing new stamp sets to share - Putting on the Ritz, Art Deco Backgrounder and Opera Tags Christmas

My card features both Putting on the Ritz and Art Deco Backgrounder. I stamped out the background with ColorBox Sea Crystal ink and then used the smaller element stamps to add some Pink Sky (which is more like wine red?!)  for contrast. To embellish I added some lace, pearls and ribbon. 

For my tag I used both Putting on the Ritz, Art Deco Backgrounder again. I loved how these colours worked out and didn't feel that it needed anything more than a little bit of  ribbon.


I also made a treat box featuring Opera Tags Christmas. I made up the template for this box myself, it's quite easy to do :) The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye. I used the ColorBox Pink Sky and Archival Black to make the tag. 



Check out what the rest of the DT have created with these amazing stamp sets.. each one is listed below for your convenience


Have a great day
