#661 – Winnie & Walter August/September 2017 Release Day 4

Hello and welcome to the final and Premier day 4 of Winnie & Walter August/September 2017 Release! Its the last day and the whole Winnie & Walter team+myself are showcasing the Wish Big with Evelin T Designs stamp set and cutaways. And here’s what I made –

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 01 Sep Cards

For the card on the right, I stamped the cupcakes in a light kraft ink and colored it using Zig brush pens. For the background, I lightly watercolored distress inks and added black splatters. The grey cardbase has some light texture, to create which I smeared white pigment ink, directly from the ink pad. After mounting everything on the card, I added some Nuvo Drops in Gloss White and Silver Lining. I also applied some glitter sparkle on the cupcakes, which are totally not visible in these photos, but they look lovely on the card! 🙂

For the card on the left, I first blended in Pumice Stone distress ink around the boundary and Scattered Straw from within, then added splatters using Camel Drawing ink the matching colors. I then stamped the sentiment and candles in a light grey color on top. The cupcake is colored as a no line watercoloring using distress inks, which I fuzzy cut and adhered right on top the sentiment.

Hello and welcome to yet another day of Winnie & Walter August/September 2017 Release! Today the whole Winnie & Walter team is showcasing Ring in the Celebration stamp set, Mini Scenery: Round and Round stamp set and Ring in the Celebration Cutaways.

For my cards, I’ve used Ring in the Celebration stamp set and Mini Scenery: Round and Round stamp set along with some other W&W products –

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 31 Aug - All Cards

For my first card, I used the Ring in the Celebration stamp set. I heat embossed the images in white, and applied distress oxide inks. The sentiment comes from In Bloom: Carolina’s Florals.

For my second card, I used Mini Scenery: Round and Round stamp set. I used a creamish card base, on which I used masking and heat embossing in gold to get the lovely circles across the whole width of the panel. I then fuzzy cut one side of it. The sentiment on the black card base comes from Sentimental: Gift, which I heat embossed before mounting the circle embossed panel on top, along with a strip of gold and copper leafing.

#658 – Winnie & Walter August/September 2017 Release – Day 2

Hello and welcome to another day of Winnie & Walter’s August/September 2017 Release. Today, the whole Winnie & Walter team are showcasing Happy Birthday to You stamp set, In Bloom: Shirley’s Blooms stamp set, Sentimental: Gift, Happy Birthday to You Cutaways and In Bloom: Shirley’s Blooms Cutaways.

And I am using the In Bloom: Shirley’s Blooms stamp set with some other W&W products in the two cards I am presenting today –

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 30 Aug - All Cards

For my first card, I simple used distress inks to cover up the background, stamped the sentiment from Sentimental: Gift, then stamped the pretty flowers and leaves from In Bloom: Shirley’s Blooms stamp set in black ink. I then trimmed and adhered this over a white card base and used a few black rhinestones for embellishing.

My second card uses a sort-of retro looking flowers. I stamped the flowers using different inks, and colored the background using Zig Brush marker. The sentiment comes from Wish Big From Evelin T Designs stamp set, which we will showcase tomorrow. When I stamped the sentiment first, in brown ink, I guess the background was still a bit wet, so it ended up spreading a bit, and this formed a sort of shadow/halo around the black ink, when I stamped it over after waiting till it was completely dry. Happy accident! 🙂

I also added a few dots on the flowers and here and there, and added some sparkle using a glitter pen on both the flowers and the sentiment. I then die cut this panel using Essentials: Lana’s Cutaways, then mounted it at an angle on a black card base.

#656 – Winnie & Walter August/September 2017 Release

Hello! I am so honored that Shay asked me to join Winnie & Walter’s August/September 2017 Release. Its full of fun stamps and dies, and I just can’t wait to show what I’ve created with them all with you! 🙂

[Photo heavy blog post!!]

Today we are showcasing the In a Word: Happy stamp set, In a Word: Happy Coordinating Cutaways, In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways, In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways. Unfortunately, I haven’t received any of the dies from this release yet, so I’ll be showcasing only the stamps instead. But I can assure you, you’ll not be disappointed! 🙂

I have used the stamp set In A Word: Happy to make 4 cards – I just wanted to use all the fonts in this stamp set! 😉

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 29 Aug - Card 1

For my first card, I used a woodgrain texture cardstock, stamped the outlined ‘happy’ and ‘everything’ on it using black ink, then trimmed the panel, with a little of the sentiment overhanging. The background has the small flowers and leaves stamped in monochrome, over which I added a few details using a black pen.

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 29 Aug - Card 2

My second card has both the solid and outlined ‘happy’ sentiments. I used similar inks to stamp each ‘happy’, stamping the solid part in a lighter ink, and the solid part in three different darker inks. I then die cut the panel using the In A Word: Happy die, mounted it over white card base. The ‘for you’ is from another stamp set, Sentimental: Gift.

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 29 Aug - Card 3

My next card uses leafing to add shine, while keeping it easy and simple. I used double sided tape on the card base to add gold and copper foil, and used sticky embossing powder for the sentiment to stick the foil.

Look at that shiny leafing! Just love it!! 🙂

W&W Aug-Sep Release - 29 Aug - Card 4

For my last card, I used the colors from the Winnie & Walter August Color Combo Challenge with Heather.

To keep things simple, I just added the sentiment using silver and white heat embossing.
