WMS August Release Sneak Peeks: Big Day - Today, Pinstripe Backgrounds and Zig-Zag Backgrounder

And we’re back with the final day of sneak peeks for the August 10 release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  How have you enjoyed the peeks so far?  Aren’t there some amazing stamps coming your way?! I’ve had so much fun, and today we have three more sets to share:  Big Day - Today, Pinstripe Backgrounder and Zig-Zag Backgrounder:

 
 
 
This card practically stamped itself, it just came together so wonderfully.  I love when that happens!  I started by stamping the Pinstripe Backgrounder using a light aqua ink.  The pinstripe has a slight distressed appearance, and when I stamped it I tried to get an even more distressed look, as you can see along the edges where it didn't stamp completely.  I then used a few of my leftover cut images and stamped the leaves using Two Step Sprig and Simple Sprig and the flowers from Two Step Sprig.  I didn't use two different colors on the flowers, I just stamped off once, then re-inked and stamped over the flower with the detailed stamp.  Orange and aqua are a favorite color combo of mine:  
 
 
 
The sentiment is from the new Big Day - Today sentiment set.  When Claire released the Big Day - Additions and Big Day - Essentials set, I begged her to create another using this wonderfully flourished font.  I just love it!  (Not that she made this new set just for me or anything...lol!)

This next card is uses more images from the Ocean Bound set that was previewed two days ago.  I stamped the Chevron Backgrounder stamp on the lower half and embellished from there:

Again, the chevron pattern is slightly distressed, which takes off some of the pressure to stamp it perfectly...lol!  And I absolutely love anything chevron right now, so I was especially thrilled to see this stamp being released this month!


I don't know about you, but black and kraft chevron is just begging to be made into a Halloween card, too!  Stay tuned!

Please be sure to visit the other ladies today, as they have so many great things to share!

I've been looking at samples all my lunch hour (at my desk at work)and I've only just caught sight of the fact that pin stripe is a background stamp. DER! Beautiful!

More beautiful cards. I love the birthday wishes sentiment - that font is so, so elegant! The backgrounds are just super - can see so many uses for them!
