WMS May Release–Day 3

     Welcome back for the third day of Waltzingmouse Stamps May release! Tomorrow’s the big day so please be sure to waltz along with the Design Team before the official release. All of your comments have really got me pumped! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments! 
     Please be sure to visit Claire’s blog and check out the posts from the first two days because there are BIG prizes to be had; you don’t want to miss out!!
     Today the WMS Design Team is featuring Dainty Doilies-Large and Dainty Doilies 2-Small. I used Dainty Doilies-Large and I am also peeking “the quiet side” of Say it Loud for my sentiments (thanks to Anya for the inspiration). 
     I felt like I was channeling “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” when I was stamping my backgrounds. I wanted to keep the sentiments small to show off as much of the backgrounds as possible. It provided the perfect opportunity to match the small sentiments from Say it Loud with the smaller very vintage Labels stamps.
     Onto the cards!

  4. Hi Kate

    Your colourful cards with the different doily stamps look very good, I like them.

    And I also very much like your cards using the "Join Us" stamps shown yesterday. I think it's a great idea to also stamp on white napkins, that really looks great together.

    Kind regards
