WMS August Release Previews – Day 2

Written by: iwona    25 Comments

Welcome to the second day of Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release previews! Yesterday we went nautical (how did you enjoy it??) and today we’ve got your florals well covered! As when you thought it can’t get any better… tee hee!
The three sets previewed today are Two Step Sprig, Funky Flowers & Simple Sprig. All full of flowery goodness that you can mix & match to your heart’s content.

On my first card, I layered the images from Two Step Sprig and Simple Sprig, and let them spill from underneath the die cut flutterby. I absolutely adore the 3-D effect that can be achieved by layering the stamps in the first set. It should be called Three Step Sprig since there are these many layers available for the foliage, but there are plenty more options for the flowers, if you ask me! Especially if combined with the images from Funky Flowers. It’s a dangerous addiction, trying out all the options!


To make things more fun, I used the little ‘vein’ stamp that provides the third step for the leaves, as a bunch of wee sprigs with some tiny white berries, which I added with a white gel pen. I used the same pen to fill in the white parts of the flowers – I stamped them first in white ink but decided that the impression is not bold enough and so I used the pen to give it more definition. I could have white embossed those in the first place I suppose, but I was too lazy to pull out my heat gun. LOL, don’t judge 😉
The sentiment used on the card above, comes from Vintage Labels No. 25.

Another card, here I paired the images from Simple Sprig, with the sentiment from the previously released Country Labels 14 and again the ‘vein’ stamps from Two Step Sprig, this time stamped in the centers of the leaves as they’re intended to be used. I also mixed in some Funky Flowers, in the shape of the brown centers of the roses. Why not? 🙂
The shapes were cut with my Silhouette, using the corresponding cut files which will be available in the WMS store.


I used the fabulous STS#1 sketch, way to start with the great trend – tilted panels!

Finally, I let the Funky Flowers shine on this card.  Shapes cut using the corresponding cut files, layered and bent upwards for a more realistic look (and a little more dimension which you know I’m a sucker for!)

I’m joining rs#75 with the card above:
