Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Previews - Day 1


Hello there folks! It's finally that time again. Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Previews - Day 1. Today we're featuring three stamp sets, Art Deco, Putting on the Ritz, and Opera Tags Christmas.

For my first card, I used Art Deco and Putting on the Ritz. These sets remind me so much of The Great Gatsby. Gold and glamour, and this is what I came up with.


I used Perfect Pearls and gold embossing powder to make a little "skirt" for my card. 

I decorated it with some feathers I stamped on vellum. I made a tutorial for this and will share it in a few days. I actually made it before I made this card. lol. 
***Update: You can find my tutorial here.***


For my second card, I used the same background pattern and decorated it with this from Opera Tags Christmas. I thought this would be great as a thank you card for a bridal shower. :)



 That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure to stop by again tomorrow for more inspiration.
