Waltzingmouse Stamps – March Releases – Preview Day 1

Hi there blog friends, as card makers we see the same holidays every year so I ‘jump’ at the opportunity to use something other than the conventional colors :-)  Today we’re kicking off the preview of the new Waltzingmouse Stamps with a ‘Hop’ – pun intended.   Claire Brennan, the owner of Waltzingmouse has designed some scrumptious digital papers to go along with the sets being offered for the release.  I selected one of her new papers and adopted it for my Easter palette.  Cool blue, cream and tan snuck in just when you were not looking.  I created a card using the new paper. The eggs and banner done using cut files that Claire will be offering on release day.  Since I had the perfect paper, I went ahead and made the sweet little basket currently in the Waltzingmouse Digital Library.  Cut with a digital cutter, I filled it with candy and hung the egg on one of the candy packages as a sweet tag.
The bottom of my card is shaped with Spellbinders™ A2 Bracket Borders One.  I then added a panel that I shaped with the same die template set.  After situating my lace and seam binding, I added a panel and cut a triangle from the bottom to form a pennant.  Since my egg and banner were small, I mounted it on my pennant panel.  That litte bunny is so stinkin’ cute :-)

    I am again “amazed” with what you have come up with. Unbelievable! The bunny is stinkin’ cute as you say! I have about half of my Easter stuff completed (my son’s birthday this year). So have to do his card which as a 49 year old, he is especially appreciative of his Mother’s handmade cards and saves each one. Have a blessed day, Becca.
