WMS Sneak Peek - Thinking of You

Wow - have you been checking out the Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks?? They started yesterday with some of the WMS DT and I have some for you today!
Claire is celebrating WMS's 1st anniversary this May and to mark the occasion she is releasing 8 wonderful new stamp sets! You'll want to start making your shopping list right now!

I'm using Big Blooms today as well as sentiments from Asian Garden (I'll be using some of the images from this pretty set tomorrow!) and Fancy Phrases.

First, I have a get well card using both the solid and outline chrysanthemums in the Big Blooms set and sentiments from Asian Garden. This card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"

I also stamped the inside of my card.


My second project is a little canvas bag that I stamped with the Big Blooms chrysanthemums as well as one of the leaves in the set. This sentiment is from the new set Fancy Phrases. (ETA: I bought this cute canvas bag on a stamping web site a few years ago - they no longer carry them and I haven't been able to find any exactly like it yet. Michaels has a slightly larger one in white but it's not as nice!)
You'll really want to check out the rest of the WMS DT who are showing sneak peeks today : Belinda, Anya, Laurie, Lynn , Bonnie, Jennifer and our Claire.
I'll be back tomorrow and Friday with more sneak peek excitement for you!!

On Saturday all of the WMS DT will be participating in a blog hop using a super fun new template and there will be two stamp sets to be won!!! Trust me - you will not want to miss it!!!

Note: Claire is also running a Shipping Promotion in the store on May 1st and 2nd. Orders of $77 US or 50 GBP sterling, will qualify for free shipping! So those two days would be a really good time to order all the WMS sets on your list!!!

Paper: White - PTI, Core'dinations/vintage collection.
Ink: Adirondack - Raizin, Lake Mist, Memento Tuxedo Black, Stazon Black/Olive Green/teal Blue.
