WMS Sneak Peek Day 1! Cameos!!!

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks of the Waltzingmouse July 1 release!   Claire has designed 8 wonderful new stamp sets to inspire your creativity!

Today the Design Team is previewing Cameo to Go, Cameo Creations and Ovals,Classic Frames.
My first card uses something from each of the 3 new sets.

The frame and the boy cameo are from Cameo Creations. (this cameo is so finely detailed - you can see little hairs on the top of the boy's head)  The sentiment, Dearest, is from Cameo to Go and the design line behind the sentiment is from Ovals, Classic Frames (which you can see coordinates with the frame!)

First, I embossed a square Nestability on my card base.  I stamped the frame and cameo on a white panel, layered it to a slightly larger black panel and adhered it inside the frame with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it with an oval punch, layering it over the stamped line design with foam tape.  Finally, I added tiny twinkles on the frame and line stamping.

My second sample uses two of the new sets.
The little girl cameo and frame are from Cameo Creations and the sentiment, My Dear, is from Cameo to Go.  I love the kind of Victorian flaire to the sentiments - they go so well with the cameos!
Again, I embossed a square Nestability on the card and stamped the cameo and frame on a white panel.  I tied a piece of wrinkled seam tape around the card before adhereing the panels with foam tape inside the frame.  To finish it off, I added some tiny twinkles and a beaded stick pin.

Well - that's it from me today!   I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for a sneak peak of two more new Waltzingmouse Sets!

Now let's go check out what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire us with!

Julia,
Really beautiful! I love the clean lines - you always have great balance between positive and negative space that looks seamless, but is hard to recreate. Really well done!
