Waltzingmouse Stamps Sneak Peek: Woodgrain Backgrounder Set

Surprise!  I’m back with a peek of new stamps being released December 1 from Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Claire has four new sets coming your way, just in time for a little Christmas gift (for yourself, of course!).  Today’s we are sharing a peek of the Woodgrain Backgrounder Set:

I’m sure by now many of you have noticed that woodgrain is hot, hot, hot!  It’s everywhere!  And I think I know why…it’s so much fun and extremely versatile.  I paired up the large background stamp in the set (yes, the backgrounder is just one of the stamps included in the set!) with this great sentiment from Yonder Star.  Check out the fabulous texture on this stamp!

And, woodgrain is not just for Christmas:

Okay, I'm dying with this sentiment from Blessed By You.  Anyone else thinking of the movie Jerry Maguire??  And it is per.fect for this card with the cut out heart!  Again, I used the large background stamp, but I kept a tone-on-tone look to the wood.  I love how real it looks!

One more take on a sweet love card:

This one utilizes the oval that I cut out of the first card and I used another stamp from this new set, the banner.  I love the contrast of the two wood tones.  It's hard to tell, but the background paper has a foil shimmer to it.  In person it's a fun contrast with the rustic wood.  The sentiment is from Sweethearts, one of my all time favs:

I'll be honest; I had to make myself stop with these three cards!  My head is swimming with ideas for this set, and no one is as surprised as I am that this set is sooo addicting!

I can’t wait to see what the other design team members have done with this terrific set!  Make sure you check them out, too!
