February Waltzingmouse Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 3



Today’s the last day of Waltzingmouse Stamps sneak peeks, but the design team and I will be back tomorrow with the traditional release day blog waltz in which we showcase another two new sets!  Whew, there is so much eye candy!  I hope you have been enjoying it all…I know I have!  And today I’m sharing two special sets:  Compact Sentiments and Heirloom Patterns.  First, a little inspiration:

Today's sneak peeks are especially exciting because we are debuting the first set of a new designer for Waltzingmouse Stamps!  And that designer is none other than our very own Anya Schrier! I think she did an amazing job with Heirloom Patterns and I have absolutely loved working with it.  Way to go, Anya!


This first card is a little wacky.  I created an oversized egg using my oval Spellbinder dies and stamped it with violet chalk ink and the diamond border included in Heirloom Patterns. I created a frame with the egg using a smaller oval to cut out the center for the sentiment to pop through.  I absoultely love the fonts included in Compact Sentiments!  They may be compact, but they really pack a punch!


This next card isn't quite so wacky, but it is very bright and cheery.  It's been a lot of fun to change gears and great Spring themed cards:


This sentiment from Compact Sentiments was my inspiration for this card.  I wanted the flowers from Spring Baskets to look as if they were growing out of the sentiment.  I then colored them with Copics and added a pattern to the rest of the card using another great border in Heirloom Patterns.  This one reminds me of mattress ticking, which is a truly timeless pattern with a lot of possibilities! 



And, although not on one of my projects today, I am so thrilled that this set includes two houndstooth pattern stamps!  Love it!

And, once again, the design team has come up with some amazing projects to share today:
Thank you all for stopping in and sharing your excitement with me!  Your comments are much appreciated!  See you tomorrow for the big release day and blog waltz!

Jennifer I love the cute cards you did today. The egg with the peek hole is so cute. I absolutely love the idea of the other card with the line, and your saying it looks like "Mattress ticking". Love That! It also reminds me of the paper you learned to print on in school with the broken line in the middle. Just has n added line. It's just so fresh and fun. Cute with the way you have the daffodils coming out of the "Thanks a Bunch". Lovely!!!

LaurieJ said...

Your Easter egg is just adorable! And the daffodil card - I LOVE IT! It's so fresh, it just shouts springtime.

I am so glad you enjoyed using Heirloom Patterns, Jennifer, your creations are outstanding! I love the way the daffodils pop right out of the sentiment and the pin stripes add a soft subtle touch. The easter basket is fab, too, really love this!
