Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz ~ May Release


Wow! I can't believe it's already release day for the 3 new Waltzingmouse Stamps sets!! If you've arrived her via Anya's blog, you're on the right track. If not, be sure to start at Claire's blog so you don't miss a stop. Also, you have an opportunity to win a stamp set of your choice. All you have to do is leave comments on the blogs along the hop for your chance to win. You have until May 11. Check out Claire's blog for the deadlines.

Now, for my card...today we get to feature any set we'd like, so I chose the Compact Family set because I had a this special gift set in mind for a dear friend.


I love the sentiment " a hug from your..."! It's perfect because you can add whatever you want to the end of it; Friend, Mom, Auntie, Daughter...etc. Obviously I chose friend and framed them with various diecuts. I used Fancy Tags Two, Floral Ovals, Classic Ovals, Wonderful Wings Grand and Labels 9 dies (Spellbinders).


I wanted to add a tag to the bag I made, and thought the Labels 25 die shape (Spellbinders) would make a beautiful tag. And Claire designed the most beautiful image to fit inside it. It's included in the Paris Nouveau set. I included the sentiment "You make me smile with all my heart", from the new Compact Sentiments ~Part 2 set, to the center.

Here's a look at the bag. Now I'm not a sewer, but this was super easy to put together. And I'm happy with how it turned out. I filled it with a huge variety of wrinkled seam binding ribbon and lace. A perfect filler for a vintage inspired bag I thought. :)

That's it for me today. Next stop, the ever inspirational and super sweet Becca.

Thanks for visiting today!!
Happy Stamping!!
