Waltzingmouse August Release - Sneak Peek - Day 3

Welcome friends to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse August Release Sneak Peeks -  Tomorrow Claire will be releasing all 8 of the wonderful stamp sets we have been showing you for the past 3 days along with many new coordinating dies!  whoo hoo! 

For our last day of Sneak Peeks - we are showing you Great Big Owl, Boo and Friends and Peek a Boo Sentiments.  Dies will also available for these sets.

For my first card - I'm using one of the 2 gorgeous owls in the Great Big Owl set along with two circle designs (there are branch and leaf stamps and other little design stamps in this set) and one of the 9 sentiments.  I colored the owl with Copics and cut out the opening in his belly to frame the sentiment I stamped on the patterned paper behind him.
Inside I stamped another of the sentiments along with the crescent moon in the set.
Here's a close up of the wonderful detail on this owl stamp!
Next up I have a card featuring my grandniece, Mila.  She's 2 years old now - but this photo was from last Halloween when she was just 1 - what a dolly!!  (and she still is!)
I used a sentiment from Peek A Boo Sentiments for this card (this set has 15 sentiments in it!) - along with Claire's recently released Halloween Party witch die that goes with one of her very first Halloween sets - Halloween Party
Inside this card I stamped another sentiment from Peek-a-Boo Sentiments and a cute little ghostie from the Boo and Friends set.
And for my final sneak peek today - I stamped this cute little dracula ghost and cluster of stars from Boo and Friends along with another sentiment from Peek-A-Boo Sentiments.  I added a drippy punched edge along the bottom of the image panel.
I covered the dracula ghost and stars with Glitter Glaze to give them a lot of sparkle.  I cut out the ghost and layered him onto the panel with foam dots.
Inside another sentiment from Peek-A-Boo Sentiments with candy corn cluster from Boo and Friends.

Brilliant job with all of your creations today. Love the stamping on the patterned paper on your owl card and the way you used the fun circle images.

Your project with the picture of that sweet little pixie...teehee...she really is too cute to spook! Your witch die cut looks fantastic with these die cuts and papers.

...and your fun ghost card is terrific. Love the way you used those stars and the special bits of dimension and sparkle in them. And of course, that VAMP is super with his sparkle...all wonderful projects.
