Waltzingmouse Stamps Sneak Peek: Man of the Hour

Today’s the last day for sneak peeks of the three new sets releasing April 18 at Waltzingmouse Stamps! The last set the design team is sharing today is called  Man of the Hour:

This set is full of terrific sentiments for your or your children’s father, dad, or father figure.  Once again, the font combinations are outstanding!  When I read the sentiment for this card, I knew I’d have to play off of the heart theme.  I was also very inspired by this card from Christina. 

I used my Silhouette to cut out the front of my card and to cut out the heart shape in the center.  I then adhered a favorite black and white photo to the front of my card and layered the heart piece over it, adding foam mounting tape to pop it up.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in black onto a strip of vellum.  I used the date stamp from My Kind of Guy to remember when this photo was taken.  The big guy is going to get all misty-eyed when he sees this one!

This next card also plays off of a word included in the sentiment.  Again, I used my Silhouette and designed the simple square and triangle shape, to include the heart cut out.  I also popped it up with dimensionals and embossed the sentiment in white this time.  A strip of felt ric rac “grass” finished it off.

I love how these turned out!  Perfect for birthday, Father’s Day or even Valentine’s Day!  Really, any day is a good day to tell someone how much you love them, don’t you think?
