Waltzingmouse - August Sneak Peek - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse August Release Sneak Peeks!

Today I have 3 cards featuring 3 more of the new Waltzingmouse sets coming out on August 27th -  Little Darlings, Little Darlings Sentiments and 'Tis the Season.

My first card features stamps from the Little Darlings set that contains 4 wonderfully vintage baby images and 3 coordinating vintage font sentiments. (This set compliments yesterday's Vintage Baby Shower) I also used two sentiments (Congratulations to You and Baby and A Baby Girl) from the 12 sentiment set -Little Darlings Sentiments.
I stamped two sentiments A Baby Girl from Little Darling Sentiments and Arriving Soon from the Little Darlings Set in light pink ink along the top and bottom edges of my card.
I stamped and hand cut the beautiful vintage baby carriage and layered it over a new die Claire is releasing on Thursday called Picot Panel - so pretty with the dotted lacey edge isn't it?!
As many of you know - I have 2 beautiful grandnieces (2yrs and 5 mos)  and 2 handsome grandnephews (4 yrs and 3 yrs) whose photos give me constant inspiration for my card designs!   So here is a sweet photo of Madelyn when she was less than a month old with a cute little yawn! 
I cut the tag with one of Claire's Stitched Tag dies and stamped this sweet sentiment from Little Darling Sentiments on it. I attahced it to the photo with a sparkle brad.
Inside I stamped another of the sentiments (a kind of 'tongue in cheek' one!) from the set on a panel of pink card stock.  "A hint for the new fangled parent - the first 40 years are the tricky bit".
And finally - the third set we're showing today - a lovely Christmas sentiment set called 'Tis the Season consisting of 4 large flourishy sentiments!   Here I've paired one of the sentiments with a die cut layered pine tree cut from some patterned paper and covered with Glitter Glaze (the tree is quite sparkly IRL!)  These lovely sentiments certainly take front and center attention!

These cards are so gorgeous.....and I just love the sweet picture of Maddie in the midst of her yawn. That picot edge is lovely, and so perfect for a delicate girl card. Love your layered tree.......I think that's a case for sure for me!! Wish the glaze would show up, but I can imagine it a bit. Enjoy this lovely day my friend!
