Waltzingmouse Stamps – February Releases – Preview Day 3

Hi there blog friends!   We are to Day Three of releases for the Waltzingmouse Stamps February sets.  Today we’re introducing two more new sets – Compact Sentiments and Heritage Patterns.   I couldn’t resist stamping out the harlequin pattern to use for my background on Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Three!  For the rest of my card I went with tones of an aqua that has some gray or blue in it, and was able to work it into the flowers made with Spellbinders™ Bitty Blossoms.

I loved the contrast of the white so I also used some embellishing curls from Spellbinders™ Floral Flourishes.  For my sentiment I simply cut a banner and snipped the ends, then stamped and curled up the edges.  Compact Sayings is one of those stash must haves – the sayings will take you through quite a few occasions!

    Na.na.na.na.nahhhhh!!! What am I singing and chiding about? Well, yesterday, the mailman delivered to me the FINEST Peg Bow Maker out there to my home … nahh.nahhh.nahhhhhh. And in it, because I was one of the lucky first 100 buyers, was a beeeeee-ooooooo-utiful card handmade by none other than Ms. Becca herself.

    So first, I need to say THANK YOU to you, Becca, for sharing your glory with us, in all you do. You are one of the world’s brightest gems.

    Second, and no less of a compliment, this card shown here is luscious! I love the soft colors and the beautiful flowers and WMS stamps. Thank you for all you share!!

  • Kelly SchirmerFebruary 28, 2012 - 5:52 am

    GASP….it’s like a dream! The layering of the harlequin pattern with the lace is gorgeous! As is your sweet bouquet and then that perfectly-tied-fantastically- beautiful-white satin bow! This is the best thank you card ever :) The recipient will surely faint, and then do more special things for you in order to get another card, heeee :)ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte ZweigoronFebruary 28, 2012 - 8:57 am

    I LOVE this color. I am usually all about crisp pastels; no “muddy” colors as I tend to call them. But this one has me… I even bought some little floral pieces in this color to use as soon as the opportunity presents itself. Your use of the crisp white makes it look so fresh. I love it! TFS…ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca! I am LOVING this color combo of shades of aqua with the white! Very classy dear lady! I have only recently discovered you, thanks to Spellbinders (which I am also new to also). A friend had told me about you nearly a year ago but in the hustle of every day life I simply forgot to look up your web site. My loss! However, now I have discovered you and am absolutely bowled over by you talent.ReplyCancel

    Just stunning Becca, love the soft pretty look and what I always love the most is how you always tie your cards up like a tiny present. Always such attention to detail. Beautiful work. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • Edna BurgessFebruary 29, 2012 - 7:56 am

    Didn’t see where to comment on the operation of your bow maker company. I’ll save this and show it to my son who built me my bow maker when you first had it as know he’ll enjoy seeing it. How wonderful you found someone to make them as not everyone has someone to do it for them. EdnaReplyCancel

  • LizFebruary 29, 2012 - 10:14 am

    Love this card! Just my opinion about the bowmaker. I don’t like putting things together and no hubby to do it for me. Honestly, if the thing was already put together, I’d buy it. I know it would cost more with shipping. You might think about making that an option?ReplyCancel

  • LaurieJFebruary 29, 2012 - 10:24 am

    Fabulous!! Those bitty blossoms are the sweetest. And I absolutely love the color scheme that you used.ReplyCancel
