Waltzingmouse Feb Release - Sneak Peek Day 1

Welcome friends - to the first day of the Waltzingmouse February Release sneak peeks!  The Design Team will be posting inspiration for 3 days - and the Release Day will be Friday 2/28!  Claire has designed some wonderful gift card dies, a little envelope die and a beautiful sentiment set that can be used for gift cards and more!  Today we are showing you the Gift Card It stamps and Gift Card It Dies

I have two nieces with little ones - and I just LOVE babysitting for them -  so I made two cards today - one to send to Christie and one to send to Katie. (not that they need a gift card to entice me to sit!! - I'm usually begging them to go out so I can!)
There are so many sentiments in the set for all kinds of occasions and in different fonts!  The die set includes one to cut this card.

On the card below - I've used some of the bold font sentiments.
 
 The picture below shows one of the slot dies in the set - with the card removed.  It just slips in between the scallop cuts.  I made these cards as just fronts -  no fold or back.  I will write my note to them on the back of the panel.

 
 I'm linking my projects to this week's  Dynamic Duos Challenge 

 I'm also entering my cards in the SCS Love Fest Challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp - to use dies.

Here are pics of the three little munchkins I love to babysit for!
James (visiting the New England Aquarium)
Mila and Landon (Visiting Drumlin Farm, Lincoln, MA) (Landon's most interested in the puddles!)

Absolutely gorgeous Julia!

Lynn Mercurio said...

This is such a nice creation, Julia...although I suspect that babysitting is just as much of a treat for you and it is for the parents! (at least it would be for me). Awesome job.

These are great, Julia - I love the simple design that you could easily pull together at the last minute. A fabulous job!

Jill Norwood said...

These are wonderful! And the pictures of the little ones are precious! My son loved puddles too at that age! Thank goodness for his rubber boots! Lol!

Deborah Frings said...

Both cards are lovely. I do like the sentiment with babysitting! I can see this being a very useful set! Great photos of the children - they were obviously having a fun time!

Marybeth said...

I would be begging to sit for those sweet faces too! They are adorable!
Love your gift card and the mix of fonts with the bold Julia!

HI Julia! I'm really loving all the different looks for the gift cards. Yours are bright and happy! I love the pics of the kids - they're growing fast. They know a good thing when they see it and are so lucky for you!

Cathy Weber said...

Those kids are ADORABLE, but then so is your cute and I am sure very much appreciated gift! I sure wish I had received a few of those gift cards when my kids were little. The gift card die is going to be so popular.

Kelly Griglione said...

I seriously don't know what I like better ... your beautiful cards, or the idea of getting an evening to myself!! Believe me, this is the happiest sort of mail : ) Thanks for including pics of your niece & nephews, they're adorable!

Oh I love how the green one looks like lattice with that little floral card on the front. The peachy one is so warm with that cozy chevron in the background (I have and love that "Charles" folder!!). But the sweetest of all has to be the photos of those adorable little ones! Babysitting them must be so much fun!

Pat (mspfd) said...

How creative and a great idea. The pictures of the wee ones are adorable. Have a fun time babysitting!

JoAnn said...

These are wonderful. Love the sentiment, especially the babysitting part. The photos are precious. Thanks for sharing them and thanks for joining us at the Dynamic Duos this week.

Deepti said...
