Waltzingmouse Sept Sneak Peek Day 1 Art Deco!

Welcome to the first day of the Waltzingmouse Sept Sneak Peeks!  Claire has 8 new wonderful stamp sets being released on Thursday Sept 19th.

Today we are showing Putting on the Ritz, Art Deco Backgrounders and Opera Tags Christmas.
First I have 2 projects to show you using Art Deco Backgrounders and Putting on the Ritz.   Here's a fun little tote I made from a template.  I stamped the background on the front and back panels before assembling the tote. The tote measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" so A2 size cards will fit in perfectly or a nice sized gift!
 There's a little pocket that you place on the inside that I stamped with the same background - you can slip a gift card inside the pocket.
There's also a little coin purse to hang on the outside.
I closed the flap with a piece of Velcro.
Next I made a card using both backgrounds from the backgrounder set and two more of the sentiments from Putting on the Ritz.
I die cut a Polaroid frame out of black sparkly card stock and adhered the sentiment panel to the frame.  I popped the  top piece of background and the frame up on foam dots.  I die cut the black bow, added a clear rhinestone and adhered it below the sentiment.  
I'm entering this card in the Little Red Wagon Challenge - Frame it.
I stamped the frame from Putting on the Ritz and another sentiment from the set on the inside of my card.

My last project today is a 3D creation I made using one of the ornaments from the Mini set Opera Tags Christmas.  When I stamped the ornament - I turned it upside down and it looked like a tree to me!

I stamped the ornament 4 times, die cut them with Claires' Opera Tag Die and punched out the centers with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  I cut off the point on the bottom just a bit so it would stand up.  I scored each piece down the middle  and glued them together - half to half to half. I punched 2 circles  with a 1 1/2" punch, stamped the sentiment on both pieces and adhered them together with a silver thread in between them. Before I adhered the top pieces of the 'tree' I placed the silver thread between the pieces so the circle would 'float' in the opening.
Here's a view with the 'tree' laid down so you can see all the sides.  This will fold pretty flat so it could be mailed like a card.
Well -  I hope you enjoyed my projects for today!

Here are the links to the Design Team members showing these sets today.  And please stop by tomorrow for Day 2!
