Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Sneak Peek: My Kind of Guy

Well, my friends, I didn't plan to be away from this blog so long...and look what has happened! It's already time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps release! I'll share what's taken me away from my blog next week, but right now I want to share a peek at one of the three new sets releasing April 18 from WMS called My Kind of Guy.
 
 
Let's talk about the fonts!  I'm a sucker for great font combinations, and this set has them!  As a matter of fact, they are so great, that I let them be the main attraction on my cards today.  On this one, I combined several different words included in the set and added a little detail by stamping the side scrolls and used a black fine tip pen to draw a border around the whole thing:
 
 
I love black and cream together, as well as gray and black, which you'll see on this next card:
 
 
 
Again, I added several of the words included in the set to create a design and had a perfect little space left for the dapper Englishman in the derby hat!  I love him, he is just perfect!
 
 
And, lastly, a card that's just not for the fellas, but could be for anyone who could use a thank you:
 

It's hard to see, but I stamped the sentiments a second time to create a subtle shadow. When I combine words and sentiments like this, I like to arrange them on my block together, which makes stamping a second time for a shadow much easier than if I had stamped them all separately.
 
 
Let me tell you, folks, this set was a hard one to put down!  I just know I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of this one!
 
Make sure to visit the rest of the design team today to see some great eye candy:
