Welcome back for day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Stamp of Approval Parade. We are showcasing new ways to use the sets from the July release. On Day 4 we provide the details for the monthly CASE competition, so keep your eyes peeled for a design team member’s card that inspires you.
I’m focusing on all the ways to create fun and easy background papers with the sets from July’s release. Today, I came up with a fruity twist on vintage. I used my background papers to represent wallpaper and a chair rail…and there hangs the portrait. I just love these colors together. They’re just so fresh.
My background paper is made with the heart/leaf cross and circle cameo stamps from Ovals-Classic Frames.
I wanted the bottom wallpaper to have a smaller repeat to it so I used the same heart/leaf cross stamp and created the same pattern but instead of stamping the cameos in the middle I continued using the heart/leaf cross.
Claire’s sets are unique in that you will find the same elements in multiple sizes and shapes running through multiple sets. I can’t tell you how much I love that. It make her older and newer sets flow seamlessly together.
