WMS March Release Blog Hop

Today's the day! Waltzingmouse Stamps is releasing three new sets today and the design team is having a release day blog hop! If you got to me first, you'll want to go to the WMS blog and start at the beginning. When you're done with me, you'll go to Laurie Schmidlin next. And don't forget to leave comments; one lucky commenter will win a free WMS stamp set of their choice! But as for me, I am so excited to share a card I made with the new Roses in Bloom set:



This set is so beautifully illustrated, and you'll love the sentiments, too. Now, if you're like me, and you're still working on perfecting your coloring skills, don't worry! You don't have to color these images. Although I found these roses easy to color, I wanted to show you another option. They look just as beautiful with no color at all! And the linen vellum that I used as a background makes such a subtle statement against the black. If you look closely, you'll see the linen texture. All this card needed was a few rhinestones and a pop of pink to set it off:


Now, off you go to the next stop, which is the super talented Laurie Schmidlin. Don't forget to leave those comments for your chance to win a WMS set of your choice! Have fun hopping!

Ink: black

This is so lovely!!

Super Jen said...

This is simply elegant. I love the color combo and the fact that you stamped on a paper with a slight pattern on it. Great idea for those of us you can barely color within the lines.

Your linen vellum dp makes me swoon! Love the little pink accents in the center!

Sooo elegant! Love the pop of pink.

I really like it when people show how stamps can be used without coloring. I like to mass produce for gifts, and your card fits the bill perfectly.

Nancy said...

You're right, Jennifer. That rose does not need to be colored. The flower is elegant just the way you presented it.

Stunning card with a touch of vintage elegance! I just love the black florals on vellum against the black cardstock! And the pink rhinestones are the perfect spark of color!

Hey Jennifer, this set is gorgeous and you've done a great job with it. BTW, I do visit PTI, but am pretty much a lurker these days. Not enough hours in the day to visit all the wonderful places and now that I have a new "house" to play around in time is even more in demand.
