Waltzingmouse Stamps March Release Previews, Day 1

A new release for Waltzingmouse Stamps!  

Claire will be releasing 3 new stamp sets in the store this Friday, March 8th, as well as some coordinating cut files and digital papers.  She has created some amazing images that are an absolute dream to stamp with!

Today we are showcasing an adorable set called A Good Egg.  It's filled with sweet springtime images, including bunnies and chicks for Easter.  She's also included some other sentiments that make this folksy set perfect to use all year round!

I started with a little nest of eggs for Easter...


I covered the bottom half of a little paper mache pinecone box that I had left over from Christmas.  I purchased 3 of them in a pack by Martha Stewart, but could not figure out how to use them!  I covered it was fuzzy yarn after seeing THIS idea on her website.


Added a little toothpick and Easter sign featuring images from A Good Egg.


I stamped the chick in yellow and then filled them in using a glue pen.  Added some Papaya Flocking from A Muse Studio to make them fuzzy peeps!


All of the papers used today are from a beautiful Easter collection by Authentique called "Hope."  I made a coordinating card to go with my nest...


I love mixing and matching all of the images with these eggs!  This egg was stamped and then cut out with the Big Scalloped Circle nestie.  I then placed it on top of Claire's own Opera Tags Nestabilities by Spellbinders, which are available at the WMS store.


Join us tomorrow as we preview another new stamp set.  Now for more inspiration from our new and improved Design Team!  Off you go to see what these ladies created with A Good Egg...
