Winnie & Walter June Release Day 2

Welcome back on day 2 of the Winnie & Walter June Release! Here comes more inspiration using the new stamps and dies.

Who doesn't love balloons? I certainly do! So I really got excited when I saw the new balloon cutaways :)

I didn't use the die-cut balloons, but created a mask from a scrap of paper and applied inks with an ink blending tool. I love that balloons look transparent when made like this. After I had made the balloons, I drew strings with a pencil. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Sentimental: Birthday using gold embossing powder and adhered the panel to the card. I stamped and heat-embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it. Now I die-cut the bows from gold glitter cardstock and adhered them. Finally, I added matching sequins to the balloons.

You will love these cutaways, they are nesting and you get really large ones!

Be sure to hop to the Winnie & Walter blog to see more samples and for your chance to win awesome prizes!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you tomorrow!

Winnie & Walter June Release Day 1

Hello and welcome to the first day of the Winnie & Walter June Release! This release is full of lovely birthday themed products, I love all the fun new stamps and dies!

For today I made a card using the beautiful set In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez. I wanted to create a colorful watercolor card. Here is what I came up with:

I started with a panel of watercolor paper that I had trimmed slightly smaller than the card base. Now I stamped the flowers and leaves with black ink and colored everything loosely with watercolors. After the colors were dried, I stamped the "happy", inking the letters with different inks and adhered the panel to the card. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it. 
Finally, I added matching sequins.

This stamp set offers so many possibilities because it has solid and outlined images. Perfect for all occasions!

I hope you like my first sample! Be sure to hop to the Winnie & Walter Blog to find more inspiration, as well as great give-aways! All new sets will be available on June 30, 2017.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope to see you back tomorrow!

I was inspired by Jane Allen's coloring technique. Love me some colored pencils on Kraft.
