WMS May Release Inspiration - Country Labels 4

Today I'm joining fellow Waltzingmouse DT members, Edna, Kelly and Belinda in sharing more inspiration for you using the WMS May Release stamps.  I'm using Country Labels 4 on my creations.

First up is a clean and simple faith card using the dotted frame and 'give thanks to the Lord above' sentiment from the set.  I also used the lovely Celtic Cross from one of Claire's original WMS sets - Celtic Heritage.  I love how this decorative cross looks inside the dotted frame.  I embossed the card base with Swiss Dots after stamping the sentiment and added a purple rhinestone to the center of the cross.

Many of the sentiments in this lovely set just screamed 'PLACE CARDS' to me - so I made one using this fun label that has 4 different designs on it's edges. It creates the perfect 'quilt' look when you use different colors on each section - perfect for the Thanksgiving table - or for any gathering! I stamped the sentiment on a Wonky Rectangle, laid it in the center of the label and stamped the stem so it was on the rectangle and the label.  Then I removed the rectangle and stamped a leaf on the other side that would be under it when I adhered the rectangle with foam tape.  I added 3 Tiny Twinkles for a little shimmer! 

I'm entering this place card with it's mixed patterns and colors  into the Moxie Fab World Mixy Matchy challenge.

To make the place card stand up -  I die cut another Labels 4 piece, scored it along the top about 1/2" down and adhered it to the front piece above the score line using Scor Tape.
I just love how bright and sunny my next card looks!  I used the little wreath stamp to create my background and stamped it again on the inside of my circle 'sun' and then added a pretty rhinestone to the center.
 I inked the label blue like the sky on the top and one side and green like the grass on the other side and bottom, die cutting it with Labels 4 Nestabilities.  I die cut some grass out of tissue paper and layered it over the label with foam tape. 
I finally pulled out the Action Wobble Springs I purchased quite some time ago and popped up the 'sun' over the label with it. It gives a fun spring action at the lightest touch!  Every time I touch it I think it should make the noise 'boing, boing'!! LOL!!  You can see how dimensional it is on the pic below.
Now let's waltz over to Edna, Kelly and Belinda to see what fun things they have created today to inspire us with these new stamps!
