WMS Sneak Peek Day #1 - Give Thanks

Today begins the Waltzingmouse Design Team's Sneak peeks of five wonderful new stamp sets Claire is releasing on Sunday 9/12/10.

I have not been able to stop creating with the set I used today called Teeny Trees - I have enough projects already made from just this set to post for 7 days! (but don't worry - I won't - not all in a row anyway!! LOL!)

This set is SO versatile - it includes 13 sentiments for that many occasions and 7 styles of trees (not to mention little leaves, flowers and birds! Oh my!)

Today I made a fall theme card using one of the tree trunk stamps and one of the round 'leaves' stamps as well as one of the little leaf/petal stamps! I stamped the leaves twice - cut them out and layered them over the initial stamping for some dimension. Then I did a lot of sponging. This textured Coredinations paper is to die for. It's like embossing without having to! LOL!

So off you go to check out Claire and the rest of the DT linked below - let's see what new sets they are working with today! You're going to love what you see - I guarantee it!!!
Julia (me!)
