Waltzingmouse Oct Release Sneak Peek Day #1

Hey stamping friends! I'm so happy to welcome you to Sneak Peek day #1 of the Waltzingmouse October Release!

We're also very excited to welcome two new DT members to WMS with this release - Joan Bardee and Sandie Dunn! You'll see their links below.

Today I'm using stamps from Frame It.

For my first card I stamped the frame that has a gap in the outline on one side just so you can stamp any one of the 18 different sentiments included with this fun set! Then I stamped the little tree 3 times in 3 different shades of blue inks. And to finish off this CAS design - I stamped the sympathy sentiment in the gap of the frame.
Here's a pic just to show you how I was able to stamp my trees evenly inside the box. I layed my little wooden ruler just below the frame - you can see that this frame measures 4" - I stamped my trees at 1", 2" and 3" lining up the trunks (you need to allow for the space that your acrylic block takes up when placing your ruler so I recommend lining things up with a clean non-inked stamp first!) This card is 5 1/4" x 3 3/8".

For my second card, I used the square frame outline stamp and the teacher sentiment. My apple comes from last year's set called Peace & Plenty.

I colored my apple with Copics, cut it out and adhered it in the center of the frame with foam dimensionals.
So there you have 2 Clean and Simple cards using this fun new set - Frame It -All the sets in the October release will be available to purchase on Thurs 10/7/10
Now you'll want to check out the rest of the DT's peeks:

Just what I need - frames!!! I've been trying to draw them by hand - this will make life so much simpler. They are both lovely cards.

Julia
Both cards are great. While my daughter is now a mother herself (and a stamper too), the teacher card card be used for other people in our lives ie librarian, quilt teacher, hum oh the possibilities!
The sympathy card is lovely. Doing sympathy cards has always been hard for me. Thanks for sharing.
