Day 3 - WMS Sneak Peek

Welcome to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks - Are you excited as I am by the new stamps so far???

Looky what we have today BANNERS!!! whoo hoo! We have big banners and little banners! Decorative banners and simple banners!

These little banners are from the new set being released March 1 called Bitty Banners. I used the frame and sentiment from Frame It to make this festive Birthday card. Banners just scream PARTY don't they??!! I love how Claire has different designs on each one.

On this card I used one of the big banners from the new set Vintage Banners. The ribbon/label is from Bitty Banners and the sentiment is from Free Spirit - Sentiments.
And - Yes!!! - The Vintage Banners stamps were designed to fit the Spellbinders Nested Pennants and Nested Lacey Pennants which will be available mid-March. These are also very easy to hand cut as I did on my cards today.
Please join us tomorrow for the Waltzingmouse Release Design Team Blog Waltz - get your list ready of what new rubbah you want - and be ready to comment - you might win a free stamp set! It will all begin March 1st at 2 pm EST!

I'm heading over to the rest of the DT's blogs to see what they've made with these sweet banner stamps - want to come with me?? Just click on their links below!

I love both of these Julia. Combining the Frame it set with the banners is fantastic, and look how well your pennants fit within your framing and the fabulous contrast between then and your patterned paper.

I just adore the way your "Celebrate" card is designed. A creative way to bring these two images together. Well done!
