Last month, Claire made the announcement that she is going to release stamps bi-monthly from now on. During the off months, Claire and the design team will be sharing more inspiration during the WMS Stamps of Approval Parade AKA SOAP. We'll be using the stamp sets released the previous month for three days starting on the first and then, we will highlight one of the previously released sets on the 4th.
This month, we're highlighting the Spring Baskets stamp set. I just love the pretty baskets and images in this set! With Easter just around the corner, I decided to create an Easter card using one of the baskets and the large Easter egg image. There are lots of other great images in the set that would be perfect for Spring and Mother's Day. I colored the image on copic x-press it cardstock with copic markers. I used these colors: Y15, Y17, Y19, YG25, YG17. BG11, BG13, R30, R32, R27. R29. E33. E35, E37, W1, W3, and the colorless blender. I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line. I stitched my layers, added some lace, some baker's twine, and a red button. I adhered my image and sentiment using foam adhesive.
You'll find lots more inspiration using the Spring Baskets stamp set from the rest of the design team. Be sure to check out all their amazing projects from the last three days, too, if you missed them!

- We hope that you have enjoyed and been inspired the past few days from our Stamp of Approval Parade (highlighting last month’s sets and the Spring Baskets set). Now it’s time for you to get your craftiness on as we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.
Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.
We hope you will enjoy this competition and that it will inspire you be creative. You have one week to complete and link your project as the competition will close at 8:00 AM Claire’s time on April 10th (which is 3 AM Eastern, 2 AM Central and Midnight, Pacific time). The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on April 11th.
- I can't wait to see what everyone creates! Have a wonderful week!
