March Release Blog Waltz

Good afternoon!
Hope you have enjoyed the last 3 days of Waltzingmouse previews as much as I have...
and now it's down to the final minutes before the store reopens and the new sets are available...
But beforehand...I'm here along with the rest of the DT on the March Release Blog Waltz to hopefully whet your appetite just a bit more for these incredibly gorgeous new sets so let's get to it!
You should have gotten here via Kim Duran but if you've missed a stop along the way...
no worries because you can get back on track at any time on Claire's blog HERE.


First up is A Good Egg...
I love that sentiment and can imagine using it for so many occasions...
a thank you...
thinking of you...
to tell a kiddie...
or even a hubby ...
I'm proud of them.
And I couldn't resist pairing it with the previously released Chicken Wire...
Chicken wire?
These sets were made for each other!

Claire has created a fabulous set of cut files for this incredible set and they will be available in the store today as well but I completed this card before I had the files so I get to show you how easy they are to cut by hand too...
and this is coming from a person who failed scissor cutting so trust me on this if you don't have access to an electric cutting machine...
no worries.

I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock in SU Real Red...
then stamped the same image on a scrap piece of white cardstock in Memento London Fog...
cut out the egg and layered it onto the red burst and then cut with a QuickKutz pinking sheared square die...
which is layered onto another in red.
I stamped the sentiment in SU Real Red (have I ever told you how this is my absolute favorite red ink?) onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and trimmed out...
then layered that onto the egg with just a couple of black seed pearls.
Layered all of this onto that fabulous Chicken Wire background stamped in Memento London Fog and then adhered onto a black card base.
A lot of layers for me...
but still very simple.

And how could I not show you some of the gorgeous new digi papers Claire has designed to coordinate with these new sets...
especially since she had me at... NAVY!!

This card is so super simple thanks to the new Folk Art Medallion digi papers...
all I did was print, cut to size and adhere to a cardbase.
I then cut a strip of Rustic White cardstock and stamped a quick sentiment from one of my favorite sentiment sets...
Say It With Style...
some SU Night of Navy pinking sheared edges and a row of navy seed pearls...
easy to make...
and mail.

Last for you is another super simple card using the gorgeous Folk Art Medallion...


While I do not do kraft justice like fellow team member and friend, Karin (Peppermint Patty's Papercraft)...
I wanted to try this gorgeous image stamped in white on kraft.


I offset it just a tad...
cut the panel down to 4 x 5 1/4 and rounded the edges...
then adhered to an A2 kraft cardbase.
Added a white seam binding bow and button...
I decided to leave it sentiment free until I'm ready to send it and can easily stamp the inside to fit the occasion.

I know you're going to love these new sets as much as I do and I can't wait to see what you create with them...
and remember they'll be available for US SHIPPING starting today!
