Happy Mother's Day!

Hello everyone!! I am so excited to be bringing you a sneak peek of a new stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. There are three marvelous sets being released this month and I am going to be showing you two of the sets in the next couple of days!

I am not officially on the log to preview today, that is Lisa and Julia's and of course Claire's pleasure, but I have been making so many previews that I thought I would "unofficially" post one of my cards today -oh yes,  aren't I the rebel??! lol!

My stamp set that I am using today is called Labels 3 and of course it is one of Claire's brilliant sets that are fabulously Nestability friendly--with the Spellbinders Labels 3 dies!

Using the Labels 3 Nestability die I cut out a frame, sponged some vintage ink around the edges and adhered it to my card. I added a gorgeous Zva Creative Crystal's Pearl swirl (mouthful at that....) on top of that frame.

Then I stamped one of the images in the NEW Labels 3 stamp set in Sweet Blush ink and I cut it out with my Labels 3 nestability and inked around these edges also.

Then I stamped one of the floral images from the  Spring Baskets set, because I love it, (love them all - what's a girl to do?!)into the middle of the frame and then stamped it again, coloured it and cut it out.  I then popped it up onto the first stamped floral image.

I added the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment and a piece of ribbon with a button attached and it was done!

My designer paper is from K & Company and was the perfect background to show off these gorgeous images!

Be sure to check out Lisa, Julia and Claire's blogs to see more of the sneak peeks......shhhh....don't tell them I cheated! lol!  and please be sure to slip back here tomorrow when I will have another peek at this stamp set and more!
