WMS February Release Sneak Peek - Day Two

It’s time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps release coming up on February 28 and I’m jumpin’ in here on day two to share some sneaks at the new Gift Card It stamp set. Today I’m using not only the new stamp set, but two of the dies included in one of the coordinating die sets.  And I can tell you, this set is fun!  You don’t have to make just gift cards, as you can see:


I’m a sucker for great font combos, and I love the font choices used in this set.  So much so, that I thought the sentiments would really shine if I used the chalkboard technique.  I simply stamped, embossed, and added some detail with a chalk pencil and white ink. It doesn’t take much to make it look like a real chalkboard!


I used the card die on both of these cards, and on this next one I also used the die that makes two little curved cuts in which to slide the card into:


I stamped a border around the card, then slid the card into place. Makes for a fun way to add your sentiment to the front of your card:
