Some Pumpkins

Today, I have a card with some pumpkins for you. It's starting to smell like autumn here, so I thought I'd share another card with the new winnie & walter release. And I'll enter this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.


I used the new Moonlight set. Starting with a panel of cream card stock, I drew this line with a brown marker and masked the portion underneath it with a post-it. Then I stamped the white pumpkin, masked it and stamped the orange pumpkin. After this one was masked, too, I applied Walnut Stain Distress Ink with an Ink Blending Tool. Then I applied some drops of caramel colored spray mist. After I had removed the masks, I colored the pumpkins with Distress Inks and stamped my sentiment. I adhered the panel to a kraft card base and added some rhinestones to finish the card off. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful Sunday!

winnie & walter August Release Tour of the Stars

Welcome to the winnie & walter August Release Tour of the Stars!! For this release, everything is a bit different, because this release is different! You will love the new sets. The are so big! Every set is 6 x 8.  And they are very versatile and full of lovely elements. On tonight's tour, you'll be able to win prizes, so be sure to leave comments on the blogs! But now, let's get started. I am showing you one card for each stamp set today, but I made a lot more and will show them another day. 


For my first card, I used Moonlight and the matching cutting files. I placed the face onto the pumpkin
before cutting it from white card stock. Then I used an Ink Blending Tool and Distress Inks to color it. Afterwards, I adhered black card stock behind the face before placing it onto my patterned paper. Don't you love the font of the haunting in the sentiment? This stamp set has so many great elements and the cutting files are great, too!


My second card uses A Tree for All Seasons. It's so versatile! Here I created my own patterned paper with a single leaf stamp. On the cluster, I used the coordinating cutting file to cut some leaves. The sentiment is from the same set, I just trimmed it after I had stamped it to tuck it in behind my burlap button.


On the last card, made with This Awesome House, I did a lot of paper-piecing. I found this brick patterned paper in my Maggie Holmes paper pad and thought it would make a perfect brick house. After paper-piecing everything, I colored the windows, the door and the roof with copics. Then I stamped the little cat and added a little red bow to the door.

Ok, a wonderful release, don't you think? I can't wait to see what all the other girls did with it. I am the last stop of the tour. Here comes the full list of designers:


Happy hopping, good luck and thanks for stopping by!

winnie & walter Share the Love Week Featuring: Simon Says Stamp Day 5


Today is the last day of our winnie & walter share the love week featuring: Simon Says Stamp. I love both companies and it has been so much fun to combine them! Our last challenge is a sketch challenge.

Love it! This is my take on it:


On today's card, I used these together:
I started with a panel of watercolor paper. I love to use this kind of paper with Distress Inks, because I think they blend better on it. After I had placed my Simon Says Stamp Extra Large Dots stencil over it, I used an ink blending tool and applied Peacock Feathers Distress ink to create a gradient look. Then I removed the stencil and stamped some chevrons from the winnie & walter set Scenery: V for cheVron and sequins from Scenery: Big Bang Bling. My sentiment was die-cut from black card stock. After adhering it, I layered my papers and finished the card off with the gold star sequins. I hope you like it! And I hope you have enjoyed our share the love week. I did! Now check out the winnie & walter blog to see what the other girls did and to leave a comment for your chance to win a lovely prize! Thank you so much for visiting! I'll be back later today with our big winnie & walter August release. Don't miss it!
