New Release Previews for Waltzingmouse Stamps!

I'm always thrilled when it's time for a new stamp set release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!!! Sneak peeks started yesterday at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, where you'll find links to the Design Team members who also posted peeks yesterday. You MUST check them out... they are amazing!!!

There are two sets releasing on Thursday... Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments. They will make all your boy/male cards that are often troublesome easy as pie! And, as I'll show you on Thursday, there are several stamps which can be used for girls, too.

The card above is clean and simple... made for my son Collin who just finished his BA in Graphic Design at The Art Institute. I AM so proud of him. The sentiment and graduation cap fit perfectly in the spotted stamp from the Very Vintage Labels No. 3 stamp set.

I made a second clean and simple card using the gorgeous circle motif from the Free Spirit Boy stamp set. I stamped the image in Versamark on white cardstock, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then rubbed ink over the image using a sponge. I love the effect!

This could actually be used for a guy or a girl, don't you think?

You will LOVE these sets... Free Spirit Sentiments has more than 50 sentiments that you will use time and time again, and Free Spirit Boy has a variety of images for all sorts of occasions. For more samples using these fabulous new sets, be sure to visit the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, as well as Julia, Anya and Bonnie. Plus, there will be more peeks on Wednesday, starting at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, culminating in a Blog Waltz on April 1st (no foolin') when the new sets will be released for sale. Please be sure to join us for all the fun and a chance to win a prize!

Have a wonderful day, my friends!
