Winnie & Walter Release Premiere Day #2

Hello and welcome back! This is the first of the two post for today.
It is day #2 of Winnie & Walter’s February new release. Yesterday was day #1 and if you have not seen my day #1 post, HERE it is for you.
Today I am showcasing mini stamp sets – Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses and From the Bottom of my Heart stamp set which is free with $25 purchase.
Thanks card 2

Instructions:

1. My card base is made of light pink cardstock from my stash.
2. The front panel is Tim Holtz distress watercolour paper on which I black heat embossed the Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses stamp image.
3. I coloured the image with Zig clean colour brush pens.
4. Then I stamped the heart image from Bottom of My Heart stamp set using Red dye ink and then with versamark and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. The process of stamping with versamark on a stamp image is easy using MISTI.
5. I wanted a good dimension on the heart shape. When the embossing powder was hot, I added more embossing powder and heat set. I repeated the process thrice. I left the heart shape to dry as it is quite thick.
6. When dry, I used scissors to cut the image out and adhered on top of the watercoloured image using foam adhesives.
7. The panel is glued down to the pink card base and embellished with sequins. 
Here is a closeup of the card.

Both sets are mini sets and From the Bottom of My Heart stamp set is free with $25 purchase.

Winnie & Walter – A Set of Noel Cards!

Hello everyone,
 I have a set two Christmas cards to share with your using Winnie & Walter’s new release stamp set and cutaways. I am also at Winnie & Walter Blog today. I have used Framed with Evelin T Designs stamp set, Typecast: Cary stamp set, Framed with Evelin T Design Cutaway and In a Word: Noel Cutaway.
Both of my cards are similar yet different. They are similar in layout, the elements used but different in colours and the placement of the elements. Here is my first card.

Red NOEL card//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I used the alphabets and numbers from Typecast: Cary stamp set and stamped the sentiment saying 25th Merry Christmas using light grey ink on the card front at an angle. I did draw lines to keep the spacing even. I erased the pencil lines after stamping the images. Since the background is neutral, I wanted my focal elements to pop out of the neutral background.

Red Noel card closeup//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

For the focal point I gold heat embossed the frame from Framed with Evelin T Design stamp set and die cut the frame out using the coordinating cutaway. I also stamped the leaves and berries from the stamp set, copic coloured and die cut using the coordinating cutaway. Then I also die cut In a Word: Noel cutaway using white cardstock, sponged Candied Apple distress ink in ombre and added details using white gelly roll pen. I adhered the frame offset on the lower right of the card front using foam adhesives, the NOEL flush on the frame and foam on the edges to the cardstock. Then adhered the leaves and berries to frame the sentiment. Finally embellished with rose gold sequins.

Now for the second card, I did the background similar to the first one using Typecast: Cary stamp set. But I used red ink and a variety of christmas sentiment to create the background.

Green NOEL card//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I again drew pencil lines diagonally to get the spacing right and once stamped the background, I erased the pencil lines.  For the focal point, I used another frame from the Framed Evelin T Design which I gold heat embossed. Similar to the first card, I also stamped, copic coloured and die cut the leaves and berries from the stamp set using coordinating cutaway. The sentiment Noel is die cut using white cardstock, sponged Mowed Lawn distress inks in ombre and added details using white gelly roll pen.

Green Noel closeup//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

On this card, I clustered the elements on the top centre of the card front. The frame using the foam adhesives, the sentiment NOEL flush glued on the frame and foam on the hanging edges and the leaves falling from the frame with the berries in the centre. I used sparkly clear and gold sequins to embellished the card.

You can change colours while the alphabets are arranged on MISTI to stamp a few card fronts. And also emboss a few more frames and elements to mass produce the design. Just vary the placement of the focal cluster and you get a variety of Christmas card.

I absolutely love the Typecast: Cary stamp set. Bold alphabets and numbers. It is a must have stamp set in my collection. The Framed stamp set is gorgeous to add layers and love the hand drawn images. Of course, the In a Word cutaways are fabulous. Big, bold and great focal point word dies. This release by Winnie & Walter is fabulous.

Hope you are inspired by my cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Merry & Bright!

Hiya everyone,

Another adorable stamp set. I love the little elements in the stamp set like the ornaments that add more details to the card. 
I stamped and coloured the images from the stamp set. Then die cut using coordinating cutaway. I die cut two panels. One smaller panel using the smaller rectangle cutaway from Essentials: Katherine Cutaway and white card stock. The larger panel using the largest scalloped cutaway using Essentials: Audrey Cutaway. I stamped the branch image on the white panel and coloured with copic markers. Then mounted the owls on the branch using foam adhesives, the banner and ornaments on top of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental: Winter stamp set on the panel and the smaller sentiment on a strip of white cardstock.

I added details to the owls and banner using white gel pen. Then adhered the white panel on the red scalloped panel using foam adhesive and then flush glued on the white card base. Absolutely love the cuteness overload of the owls and ornament details.

These sets are available for purchase from Winnie & Walter store. Hope you are inspired and thanks for stopping by once again.

Winnie & Walter Rerun Feature

Hello and welcome.

This is my first post for today. I am sharing a card for Winnie & Walter’s Rerun Feature.

Winnie & Walter celebrates rerun every month! Each month a product is featured with plenty of inspirations from designers using that product, a month long sale of that product and a challenge. There is also a new giveaway. You will not want to miss it. 

This month’s featured stamp set is called In Bloom: Hollie’s Festive Florals stamp set.


I love the pretty tiny layering images in this stamp set. They can make such pretty background on the card. That is what I did to make this card.

I chose a few images from the stamp set and used Altenew inks to stamp an entire white cardstock panel. LOVE how pretty it turned out. I then trimmed the panel, added a thin strip of gold mirror cardstock and adhered to the card front. I had trimmed off a quarter of an inch of cardstock from the bottom of the card front. I added a matching green cardstock strip to the inside of the card but will be visible from the outside as well.
I also die cut  In a Word: Wishes cutaway three times. Stacked and glued them down. Then sponged Peeled Paint distress ink on the top of the Wishes die cut in ombre fashion. This is adhered in the middle of the card front. The smaller sentiment is stamped on a strip of white cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. Finally embellished with Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Simple but pretty fall birthday card. By just changing the colours of the flowers, you can personalised the design. There are also different flowers in the stamp set.

Check out Winnie & Walter Blog for more details on the rerun feature and also details on how to play the challenge.

Season’s Greetings!

Hey everyone,
 Sharing my second project using the November new release. Today I am showcasing Season’s Tweeting with Evelin T Designs and coordinating Cutaway.
Absolutely adorable images on this set and I love the handwritten sentiments. Great to create scenes. That is what I did with on my card.
I started with stamping the images and colouring them with copic markers. Then I die cut the images using the coordinating cutaways.  For the background, I die cut two white rectangle panels using the largest of the rectangle die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaway. On one panel I sponged Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers distress inks leaving the top of the panel white. I die cut the other panel to an inch. I stamped the green from Sentimental: Winter stamp set. Adhered this panel on top of the sponged side of the other panel using foam adhesives for dimension.

I adhered the image die cuts as shown on the picture. I flush glued the tree and foam mounted the rest of the images grounding them to the sentiment panel. One of the penguin image is adhered on the front of the igloo using foam adhesives. I stamped the stars from the stamp set on sky and added White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal Drops to its centre. Then I used white gel pen to add details on the images.

Cute huh! I love this set. Probably my favourite in the release. Both the stamp set and coordinating cutaway and the Sentimental: Winter stamp set are available for purchase from Winnie & Walter store.

See you soon with more. Thanks for stopping by.
