Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release - Day 1 Previews!

Hello friends and welcome to the first day of previews for the August release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  I adore this release and just know you will, too!  In fact, the ideas for these stamp sets just keep coming and I'm having a hard time keeping up with them!  :)

What you'll be seeing previewed today are three nautical-themed sets, Safe Harbor, Ocean Bound, and Tying the Knot and I can't wait to show them to you!

For my first project, I used "Safe Harbor."  This set is jam packed with these wonderful stacked sentiments and a few small nautical images.  I immediately thought of scrimshaw and wanted to go with  a neutral palette.  I started off with a kraft base with a couple of coordinating patterned papers on top.  I stamped the top piece with one of the sentiments and two small boat images.  
For my second project, I used "Ocean Bound" and chose my theme when I just fell in love with the "Oh the places you'll go" sentiment!  As I've mentioned here recently, it is baby central in our neck of the woods and I just loved this sentiment for all of the new lives getting ready to join ours and all of the fun we're going to have raising these little ones!  :)  I started off with a couple of baby-themed papers and a journaling spot and stamped a couple of images from the set onto the blue paper and embossed them with clear powder.  I stamped the journaling spot with the sentiment and large anchor and finished the card with a few coordinating vintage buttons.  I've only shown you a tiny fraction of what you'll get in this huge set!
For my final project, I used "Tying the Knot" to make this cute card.  I stamped the big knotty heart and sentiment onto some patterned paper and finished the card with some chipboard flowers and some stick pins.

I hope you're loving what you're seeing today - I know the DT is excited to share these projects with you!  Here are links to the other DT previewing today -
