Waltzingmouse September Release Putting on the Ritz, Opera Tags Christmas

Have you been checking out the sneak peek on the Waltzingmouse Makes blog?  Well - no more guessing - are you ready for the reveal?  For the next few days the Waltzingmouse design team will be showing you designs made with the September release.  There are 8 - yes you read that right!! EIGHT new sets this month.   Here's the plan - Sept 9 -18 we will be showing you previews of all the sets.  The stamps officially are released and available for sale on Sept. 19!  To celebrate Claire will sponsor a release day blog hop with prizes!!  You are going to love what you see !  Today we are previewing Art Deco Backgrounds, Putting on the Ritz, and Opera Tags Christmas! 

Art deco always reminds me of sky scrapers and clean lines so no fussing this up with ribbons and bows!  I decided to gold emboss that gorgeous background (so temping to add little gems to the circles - had to sit on my hands) and added a gold embossed  die cut for some serious glam.
Did you fall head over heels for the Opera Tags when they came out?  Well wait until you see this - Opera Tags Christmas!  Don't be fooled by the name - these are beautiful intricate designs that will dress up any occasion - I think Claire called them "Christmas" tags because it's her favorite time of year.  I can see these (and maybe you will too later  - wink!) for other occasions (double wink)!!  
Of course the stamps work perfectly with the Waltzingmouse/Spellbinder Opera Tags Dies.  There are also two sentiments included with this set in a perfect vintage font that will coordinate beautifully with any of your other Waltzingmouse images.  And in perfect Claire style - always getting the most on each and every set - there is a "To" and "From" so you can make loads of quick tags for presents this season!
I know you have so much more you want to see today. Here's a list of all the other ladies showing you previews today - so grab a cuppa your favorite and ENJOY!!

Wow!! That thud you heard was my jaw hitting the desk ;) I think your Art Deco card is absolutely magnificent. While there may be no ribbons and bows, it is still so you with the fab layers. It's beautiful.

And the Christmas card - you again! Love, love that super bow and the pretty layered tag. Great work.

Wow...King Tut would be jealous of all the gold shimmer. This image is STUNNING the way you have designed this card. That shade of blue is fabulous with the cold.

And your Christmas card is so precious with those bright festive colors and that patterned paper is TOO CUTE!

Fabulous job with today's preview, Jeanne!
