Waltzingmouse March Release Day 1

Hi there!

Welcome to Day 1 of the previews for the March Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps.

For the next three days we will be sharing previews of the three new sets that will be available for purchase on March 8. Today we're previewing a cutie of a spring set called A Good Egg. I promise that I am going to keep my chit chat short and sweet - the whole DT is bringing you previews for today and you are going to be busy!

A new home card featuring the cutest little bird house (stamped repeatedly) and an even cuter coordinating sentiment. I am just loving the font combination. I pulled my house colors from my patterned paper. A row of stitches gives them a place to hang from the top.

My second card uses some of the other images from A Good Egg combined with the chalkboard technique to create a unique Easter card.

I started with the egg image in the middle and then built the design around it. I think I need a little practice with this technique, I always feel like looking at it makes me a little cross-eyed, but a fun card nonetheless. The card base was stamped with one of the borders from Gingham & Co. and a strip of double-sided tape doused in glitter adds a pop of sparkly color.

We will be sharing previews through Thursday and the sets will be available for purchase on Friday, so be sure to stop by tomorrow to see more of the March release. Here are the rest of the Design Team links for today. Happy surfing!
