Waltzingmouse Stamps - Day 3 Previews!

This is my third (!) post of the day.  If you're looking for The Craft's Meow blog hop or The Play Date Cafe reveal, please scroll down.

Hello friends!  Today is day three of the March release for Waltzingmouse Stamps!  I hope you've been enjoying what you've been seeing from the DT - I sure have!  Today we are previewing "Folk Art Medallion" which is a wonderful medallion and folk art building set that you will just love!  I have to admit to being a little nervous about building patterns (it is new for me!) but this set makes it soooo incredibly easy!  Trust me, if I can do it, so can you!  :)
For my first project, I started off with a kraft gift bag (I had to cut the photo down so you could see some of the detail) and stamped the large medallion right in the center.  I then filled the spaces in the medallion by stamping some of the little "builder" florarl motifs in the set in red, olive, and kraft ink.  I finished the bag with some of the leaves from the set and a tag stamped with one of the sentiments. 
For my second project, I decided to use the floral spray image and stamped it twice in the center of the card.  I then used builder images from the set to flesh out the rest of the card and finished it with a sentiment from the set on the lower right.  I am absolutely in love with the font in this set and will use it often! 

I had so much fun building the medallion and the card and I know you will too!  This set is so versatile and the possibilities are really just endless!  Thanks for visiting today!
