Waltzingmouse May Release Previews, Day 3

Today we have another sweet set to preview for Waltzingmouse Stamps...it's Compact Sentiments 2!  You will love the charming new sentiments in this set!   It will be releasing on Tuesday May 8th along with the two other sets, Compact Family and Half Pint Heroines!

I chose one of the sweetest of the bunch for my project today...


You're the bee's knees!  Hee!  Remember a few weeks ago, when I won that retired hexagon punch set from Creative Memories on ebay?  Once I saw this sentiment, I just KNEW it would be the perfect thing to use on my card.  I cut various hexagons from patterned paper from the Dear Lizzie "Neopolitan" Collection from American Crafts, and then made my own hexagon patchwork background.


My die cut is from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Labels set.  Can I say that I have never used my Nesties as a stencil to add shading?!  Well, I am absolutely hooked on doing this now!  I just love the soft look.  My little sparkly bees are from the previously released L'il Buddies set.  Made my own paper rose from cardstock cut into a spiral and sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  The leaves are from Sewing Box-Hugs.  I just how warm this card looks with the cozy feel of pale yellow, white, and kraft ( a recent combination from Mona's CR84FN Challenge)!

Ready for more fun sentiments from Compact Sentiments 2?  Off you go to see what the other DT members made for today!  See you back tomorrow for the Design Team Release Day Blog Waltz at 2:00 PM EST, when Claire releases the sets in the store!  Keep your eye on Claire's blog, too, as she will be announcing the details for the traditional release day competition for a chance to win new stamp sets!
