Hi everyone - Claire has her Waltzingmouse October Release all set to go on Oct 28th - but for the next 3 days, prior to the release, members of the Design Team will be sharing Sneak Peeks to wet your appetite!! Today we are working with a beautiful little set called Flurries - that includes several beautiful snowflakes but also some lovely little trees, a panel of stars, some foliage sprigs and two sentiments.
For my first peek - I made a New Year's card using the row of trees, strip of stars and one of the sentiments. I also used a new die being released in October - called Pretty Panels #2
Here's a close up to show you the wonderful crispness of the stampings. I used Archival Inks. I cut the Pretty Panel die twice - once in white and once in Summer Sunrise - then separated the outside border from each (it pulls right off) and put the Summer Sunrise border on the white panel. I layered them both to another die cut from white so I could pop it up on foam dots over the linen ribbon. I inked the ribbon with the New Leaf ink that I used on the trees.
Next I used two of the snowflakes from the set and the other sentiment. The background panel is from an older WMS set called Nordic Winter. I popped up the snowflake panel on foam dots over the background and added Rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.
Here's a close up of the snowflakes so you can see the wonderful detail on each one!
This is just a lovely wintertime set - perfect for so much more than holiday cards. Please take a look at the rest of the Design Teams creations linked below - using the Flurries set. I'll be back tomorrow at 2 pm EST with Day 2 of the Sneak Peeks - hope you can stop by!!
