WMS September Release Sneak Peek: Art Deco Backgrounder, Putting on the Ritz and Opera Tags Christmas

I know this blog of mine has been quiet lately, but I’m back with some great treats to share!  Today is the first day of sneak peeks for the September 19th release at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The design team is sharing three sets today: Art Deco Backgrounder, Putting on the Ritz and Opera Tags Christmas, and I am sharing the first two.  Let’s get started with my inspiration, shall we?

(Both of these I found on Pinterest but they don’t link to a site, so I have so sources, unfortunately.)  The black and gold seems to be a popular combo for art deco images, so I decided to give it a try using the Art Deco Backgrounder stamp:

If you don't already know, the WMS background stamps are so wonderful!  They are big and easily cover the entire front of the card in one go.  For this card, I stamped the pattern and embossed it in gold.  The sentiment is also embossed and it's from the Putting on the Ritz set.  I think this would make a terrific party invitation! Check out that wonderful pattern:  

The second inspiration photo I really like; it just captures that Great Gatsby feel perfectly.  So here is my interpretation:

All of the elements used on this card are from Putting on the Ritz.  Don't you love that font?!  It's perfect for this set and the sentiments on this one...they are fun, unique and so well suited for the Art Deco era!  And I truly love this flapper girl:

As usual, Claire has come up with beautiful, original designs for this release.  You'll probably wonder, like I did I ever get along without these sets?!?

Black and gold work so well together and that background is stunning. However, it's your second card that I really love - the colours are soft, subtle and so pretty - the image is beautifully coloured. Love it!
