WMS March Sneak Peek Day 1 - A Good Egg

The Waltzingmouse Design Team is happy to welcome you to Day 1 of the Sneak Peeks of the long awaited release of new WMS stamps!  Claire has designed 3 wonderful new sets for us all!  Today we are showing you creations using  A Good Egg - a smaller set with 3 eggs, bunnies, chicks and a rooster, 6 wonderful sentiments and 7 little design elements!

It's not a set just for Easter either -  in fact, none of my projects today are for Easter (!)

My first creation is a new baby girl card - I used one of the eggs in the set, a little chick and one of the sentiments.  I layered the images onto a Fleur de Lis Square with foam tape and added 3 Tiny Twinkles for a touch of shimmer.  Isn't this sweet?!
Next up is a really, really, clean and simple card -  just using one of the wonderful sentiments in this set and a little leaf design element teamed up with two strips of patterned paper.  Love the two different  fonts on this sentiment don't you?  I would use this as a get well card or as an encouragement card.
And for my last inspiration for you today - I have a card that could be used, I think, as a new baby or a new home card.  I used the sweet little bird house from this set - stamped it, cut it out, popped it up on foam tape and added a little red heart rhinestone over the door opening - and another two-font sentiment.  The branch is a Memory Box die cut out of Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper -  my card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" (as are all three of my cards today) so it's ok that the branch sticks out over both edges - it will still fit in a standard A2 envelope!  I like how it allows your eye to flow off the card - almost like you are looking at a real branch coming off a tree just out of sight!
Now - I hope you'll take some time to visit all of the Design Team whose links are listed below where you will find TONS of inspiration!  You may notice that the Design Team has almost doubled in size!  We are very happy to welcome all the ladies that were on the sketch design team to our WMS DT!  Whoo hoo -   please give them a warm welcome when you visit them!

And please be sure to stop by tomorrow for Day 2 of the Sneak Peeks!

Oh AND there's a little competition - PIN IT TO WIN IT! - All you have to do is PIN your favorite sample from today's Design Team creations on your Pinterest board, use the keyword #WMSagoodegg in the caption to your pin. On Friday at 6pm GMT Claire will gather all the pins with the keyword #WMSagoodegg to pick a random pinner to win this new stamp set! Such a fun idea!!! : )
