Introducing...Good Egg

Hello! Hello!
Are you excited?
I know I am!
Welcome to Day 1 of new Waltzingmouse previews!
It's been a while...
but there's big plans for 2013 and we're starting them off with 3 gorgeous new sets this month...
the first of which I get the pleasure of introducing to you today...
Good Egg.
This is a 4 x 6 set that is packed with images and sentiments that will not only add to your upcoming Easter celebrations...
but can be used year round and I'm going to show you a couple of ways to do that but up first...

And par for me...
I kept it simple and went with a little ditty that highlights some of the traditional images associated with Easter...
in traditional pastels...

and look at that adorable banner sentiment...
I added just a couple of pink seed pearls to finish it off.
Added some pink checkered patterned paper from Echo Park's Happy Days...
and a small piece of pinking sheared cardstock...
all done.

Up next I went in a different direction...
how about a birth announcement?

I used bold pink and greens to create a super simple birth announcement using images from Good Egg.

I stamped the adorable plaid egg in Memento Rose Bud and then stamped the little duck in Memento's Pear Tart which has more yellow than the Bamboo Leaves that I stamped the sentiment in...
and which also complimented the lighter shade of green in the ribbon...

Topped the bow with a Crimson Sparklet because well...
all girls need bling right?
And if you slide the little insert out...
inside is a message...

and if there had been an actual baby born (there wasn't...and won't be)...
the other side is perfect for attaching a photo.

All of this was done and then attached onto a piece of New Leaf cardstock stamped with Waltzingmouse Chicken Wire...
which was then attached to larger piece of Raspberry Fizz cardstock and then ran through using PTI's Card Base-ics #1 die.

And last for today...
how can you have chickens and ducks and bunnies and not go country?

I stamped that sweet little sentiment and one of the little chicks onto some Stamper's Select cardstock...
trimmed it out with a little strip of Night of Navy cut with a pinking shear die...
added some denim gingham from American Crafts and some navy pearls...

Adhered it all to a cardbase and topped off with a bow...
super simple country.

Well...that's it for me today but you don't want to miss any of the incredible projects for this fun and adorable set so make sure to visit the rest of the Design Team and I'll be back tomorrow with even more goodness!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
