Heya! Welcome back! It's Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May 2013 Release Previews! It's also Memorial Day today here in the US. So today's previews are very appropriate for the holiday. The stamp set is geared towards anything American. I've been enjoying myself creating with it. So I'm showing you some of the projects I made with it. Here we go! Waltzingmouse Stamps presents...USA 1776.
For my first project, I made a card and a little 3D star. For the card, I stamped the fireworks "burst" on kraft cardstock. I also stamped USA and the little label over it. Then I dry embossed it with a wood grain embossing
I die cut some stars and stamped the stars and stripes on it. I adhered on straight onto the kraft cardstock and the other with some foam tape. I also made a 3D star out of two of the stamps. I'm thinking of using it for some banners on the 4th of July.
For my second card, I made something that I almost never make. I made a CAS card! Can you believe it?!?!?! It's a masculine card, so automatically I tend to veer towards CAS when making them. I'm just a little disappointed about my photography here though. I think it's a bit over exposed. But the gray is very rich and dark and the little flag really stands out when you see it.
I used scotch tape to cover half of the stamp to ink one portion then stamp it. Then I go back and do the same thing for the lower portion of the stamp. I heat embossed the sentiment in silver to help it pop out of the gray.
There you go! We have more coming up tomorrow. So please come back to see me! The other DT ladies have more projects for you. So please head on over there and leave them some love! Thank you for stopping by today! How am I doing so far? I would love to hear from you! :)
