WMS August Release Sneak Peek: Tying the Knot, Safe Harbor Sentiments and Ocean Bound

Hello there! Today is the first day of sneak peeks for the August release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  We have a whopping grand total of nine stamp sets releasing on August 10 and today the design team is sharing sneak peeks of three:  Tying the Knot, Safe Harbor Sentiments and Ocean Bound.

This first card was inspired by Pinterest and all of the things I'm pinning right now: aqua, navy, gold and chevron.  The sentiment, from Safe Harbor Sentiments, was stamped and embossed in white to make it pop off of the navy cardstock.  It's hard to tell, but it's backed with some shimmery gold cardstock.  The little ship wheel is a stamp from Ocean Bound.  I used the Ocean Bound cut files that coordinate to cut it out and add it to my card, along with a little rhinestone in the center:

I loved this color combination so much, I kept it going with my next cards:

For this card, I used the Ocean Bound set again and the coordinating cut files for the large sailboat and sentiment.  I really adore this sentiment and the combination of fonts!  I added some scallops on the front because they reminded me of fish scales waves:

And one more use of some chevron:

Gotta love the classic white and navy nautical color combination!  This cards features the third set for today, Tying the Knot.  I curved the "tying the knot" stamp on my acrylic block to mimic the shape of the knot heart.  Again, another font combination I love!  And, sometimes...okay, most times...when I stamp one of Claire's stamps for the first time, I just sit back and admire the detail.  Let me tell you, I did that many, many times with these three sets!  Just look at this knotty heart:

I love having these nautical stamps in my collection now.  They are so very versatile, creative and fun to stamp with!

Fantastic, Jennifer! Love that you added chevrons to the backgrounds. And those "waves" are a genius touch.

I do like the combination of navy, aqua and gold - must try that! I love the second card - that sentiment is such fun. And your wedding card is just super!
