winnie & walter October Release Day 3

It's day 3 of the winnie & walter october premieres and today we'll introduce you to another wonderful addition to the winnie & walter product family: Cutaways. I've been dreaming of dies of the popular The Big, the Bold words and now this dream came true! They cut perfectly and you'll find me using them all over my projects in the near future!
Today, I have two cards for you:


These gorgeous poinsettias are from the new set Happy Christmas. I masked a strip of the watercolor paper and stamped the poinsettias (masking some to layer them). Then I used Distress Inks mixed with water and colored the flowers with a brush. After they were dried, I applied drops of gold spray ink. Now I removed my mask and added a thin strip of gold foil card stock to the top edge of the masked area. I stamped the merry from The Big, the Bold, and the Merry and adhered the christmas die-cut that I had cut from gold foil card stock.


For the second card, I used the pinecones and branches from Winter Woodland. They are stamped with Distress Inks spritzed with water. Then I cut them out to adhere the elements with foam tape. The sentiment is from The Big, the Bold, and the Merry. I heat-embossed it using white embossing powder.

Do you love what you see? I can't wait to see what the other designers did, the possibilities are endless! Now hop to the winnie & walter blog to find more samples and enter all the giveaways! The Big Giveaway is here, day 1 here, day 2 here. Good luck and I hope you'll come back tomorrow for the final premieres! Thanks for visiting!

winnie & walter October Release Day 2

Welcome back on the second day of the winnie & walter October release! Today's cards are very wintery/snowy. Let's get started right away. Here is the first card:


This card uses Winter Woodland and the stencil Scenery: Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings. I started with a panel of watercolor paper and used the stencil with embossing paste. After the paste was dry, I applied drops of various inks. After these were dried, I used my ink blending tool and applied blue and purple Distress Inks. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the deer with black embossing powder. I die-cut a snowy hill from card stock and stamped the sentiment. To finish the card off, I adhered some blue and clear sequins to the sky.


For this one, I stamped and heat-embossed the large tree from Winter Woodland using white embossing powder. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the snowflakes from Scenery: Big Bang Flurries on vellum and adhered it over the card base. The peace word is one of the new Cutaways dies (premiering tomorrow), I die-cut it from silver foil card stock. And one last card for today:


On this card, I used Mini Scenery: Into the Woods. I stamped it to the top part using grey ink. Love this stamp! Then I just stamped the sentiment from Winter Woodland with the same ink and adhered the red bird with foam tape. This bird is die-cut using the "A Tree for All Seasons" digi files, but you'll find a similar one in the new Winter Woodland digi kit.
So, that's it for today. I hope you like the cards! Now it's time to hop to the winnie & walter blog to see what everybody created. So much eye candy!

winnie & walter October Release Day 1

Welcome to the biggest winnie & walter release yet! Oh, you will love this wonderful release! You better grab something to drink and keep you comfy, there will be lot's of eyecandy from everybody :)
Let's get started with today's projects. We are premiering two stamp sets and the new, amazing stencils called Creative Screenings. Here comes the first card:


Here I used Scenery: Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings for the background. I adhered the mask with tape and applied Festive Berries Distress Ink with my ink blending tool. Then I stamped the sentiment from Eat Drink Gingerbread Man on a piece of black card stock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. To achieve the chalkboard look, I rubbed white pigment ink onto the piece and traced the words with a white pencil.
The next card uses the same stamp set for a completely different look:


I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment again, this time on vellum. The gingerbread man is heat-embossed onto patterned paper, then I cut him out and inked the edges for a more "baked" look.
And another card with this set:


This time, I used Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Swirl with Eat Drink Gingerbread Man. First, I stamped and masked the glass of milk, then I stamped and masked the gingerbread man. Now I inked the Peppermint swirl using Spun Sugar Distress Ink on the inner part and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the outer part of the swirl, spritzed it with water and stamped over the images. After removing my masks, I colored the images with Copic markers. The sentiment is from A Tree for All Seasons.

How do you like the first glimpse at the new products? And there is so much more! So, for today, check out the winnie & walter blog for more samples and links to the other designers' blogs.
