Waltzingmouse February Release! - Day 1

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse February Release -  The Design Team will be showing you 3 new stamp sets and 5 fun dies over the next 4 days -  but Claire has a twist for this release -  ALL the new products are available to purchase today over at the WMS web store! 
ETA:  sorry I jumped the gun on my start time for this post -  all new items will be available at 1 pm EST - as well as the links to the other DT - oops!

Today the Design Team is showing you the Special Lady stamp set along with the Mother, Pretty Circle and Hello dies.
First up -  I made a Mother's Day card, using the negative piece that's left when you use the beautiful new Circle die.  I cut the Circle die from the center of a 4"x5 1/4" piece of white card stock - removed the center piece and was left with this beautiful lacey circle frame! 
I laid the vintage lady stamp on the card base then placed my circle frame over it to center the image.  I removed the frame, lifted the stamp half way up from the bottom and made a light dot with a pencil on the card base where the center of the hat brim was.  Then I stamped the image, lining up the rim with the dot,  erased the pencil dot and layered the frame over the card base using foam dots - and VOILA!  perfectly centered and framed!  Then I simply stamped one of the sentiments from the set  along the bottom and added 3 Winter Blend sequins to the card.
I used another sentiment from the set on the inside of the card - Claire always uses such delicious fonts on her sentiments!
Claire is also releasing a lovely Mother Die
 To create the background panel - I sprayed Ranger Distress Spray Stains in Peacock Feather and Spiced Marmalade onto my craft mat - then I sprayed water over the stains and dragged my white card stock panel through them until I had the panel covered with stains. I let some of it drip down and then I dried it with my heat tool. I flicked water over the panel with my fingers to create water spots and dried it again with my heat tool.
I adhered the die cut over the panel with a glue pen, stamped the sentiment from Special Lady beneath the die cut and added Rhinestones to several points on the die cut.
I stamped another sentiment and a swirly from Special Lady on the inside of my card.

For my final creation today, I used the inside piece of the Pretty Circle Die cut - cutting it in white and Canyon Clay so I could use two colors - the outside rim cuts through so you have the option of using a different color.  I layered the new Hello Die over the circle and patterned paper banner strips.
I used the Colors and Sketch from The Challenge #25 for this card.
Check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration using these new stamps and dies!

Please stop by tomorrow for Day 2 of the WMS release - the Design Team will be highlighting the fun super hero stamp set and die called Kaboom!
