WMS Sneak Peeks: Country Labels No. 14 and Big Berry Cherry

It’s the last day of sneak peeks for the Waltzingmouse Stamps release on June 30.  There has been so much to share…did you make sure to see it all?! Today I have the honor of sharing the Country Labels No. 14 and Big Berry Cherry sets.

Cherry inspiration is so much fun!  My first card is a simple one, but that was intentional so those big cherries could really shine:
It's hard to tell in photos, but the cherries were embossed three times with clear ultra thick embossing powder.  I wanted those cherries to look as real as possible!  And because each element of the cherries (leaf, stem, cherries) are separate in this set, it's easy to stamp one time in red ink and go back with the solid stamp and emboss.
This next card is a more subtle approach, using a technique that allows you to color images on dark paper:
I stamped the cherries using white pigment ink, let it dry thoroughly, then colored them in with colored pencils.  I like how the white still shows through a bit.  The sentiment (from Country Labels No. 14) was then stamped and embossed in white.
And finally, a card that combines both the Big Berry Cherry and Country Labels No. 14 sets:
That's right. the cherries make terrific big fat polka dots!  Peeking from the back is a pencil pouch I made as a small gift for a friend.  I made the card to match the fabric I used, stamping the houndstooth cherry in three different colors.  The sentiment was stamped with one of the frames from Country Labels No. 14.  I love matchy matchy!
How sweet are those fonts on this set?  Love it!
