Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Previews, Day 2

Another set to debut for Waltzingmouse Stamps...and it's one that we have all been waiting for!  A set dedicated to sentiments for your family, and Claire has EVERYONE covered!  It's called Compact Family, and it's in the same sweet font as Compact Sentiments!


First up is a card for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  This paper from Melissa Frances' Kitschy Kitchen collection made me think of her delicious pies!


I thought she deserved a blue ribbon!  Used the Woodrow Rosette die from Memory Box, and placed it over the heart from Seasons of Love-Tags.  Added the "No. 1" from Compact Family in the center.  The little tails are made with Bitty Banners.


Now on the inside is where the fun really begins!  Claire has included both family members AND lovely phrases that will all mix and match.  Each line on this sentiment is a separate image.  Another super cool feature is that the M is separate, too.  She included "om" for Mom, and "um" for Mum!!


I don't send my two sisters "hugs with folds in the middle" very often...and this sentiment gave me the kick start I needed to get one done for my sister Jill who lives in New Jersey!  Stamped the background using both Faux Fun and the heart pattern from Nordic Spring.  Used colors to match the My Mind's Eye "Stella Rose" paper that I used on the Sewing Box-Hugs birdie.


Tucked my hug behind his little wing.  Made a little nest for him to sit in with the coordinating knit image from Faux Fun Circles.

Just wait until you see all of the different sentiments that will be revealed today!  Claire has packed this set to the hilt, and I can't wait to browse along myself. See you back here tomorrow for the reveal of the third set!

Wow! These are both fantastic. I love the card for your MIL - the rosette is really pretty and the sentiment is fab! But I adore the card for your sister. The paper pieced bird and pretty knit stamped background is wonderful!

Just love the message of the blue ribbon for Mom. AND it reminds me totally of the ribbons on the stalls at the county fair! What a great feeling!
