Cute Elephant

Hey everybody! Today's card features the super cute Wplus9 elephant. I was lucky enough to get the adorable new sets before they were sold out. I'll enter this card to the Wplus9 TBT Challenge: Guiding Light. My oldest Wplus9 set is called "Ink Splats" and I combined it with the new "Bubble Talk" set. Inspired by Maureen's beautiful design, I created this card:


I thought it would be fun to have the elephant create a little piece of art with his trunk. I started using the same technique as Maureen did on her first card, masking a rectangle and inking it with various Distress Inks. Then I removed the masks and stamped the ink splats with matching ink. I stamped the "Hello" into the largest splat and adhered my panel to the cardbase. Now I stamped the elephant onto cardstock, colored it with Copics and cut it out. Then I adhered it with foam tape. Finally I added matching sequins. Here comes a closer look:


I hope you like it! I can't get enough of this cutie and will create some more cards with elephants, soon!
I'll also enter this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes".


Thanks for stopping by!

Winnie & Walter A Week To Die For Day 4


Welcome back to the last day of the Winnie & Walter feature "a week to die for"! Today we will show you projects using Goldie Trim Cutaways + Lulu Fringe Cutaways. Here is my first project:


Inspired by flowers I saw on Pinterest, I created these felt flowers using Lulu Fringe Cutaway. It is so much fun to create them! I just die-cut Lulu Fringe from felt, then folded it into half lengthwise and rolled it up. I used Glossy Accents along the edges and it worked perfectly. I adhered the finished flowers to my little gift bag, together with leaves I had die-cut from black cardstock. Then I die-cut the word "congrats" from gold foiled cardstock and adhered it, too. Finally I added some sequins.

Here comes another bag using Lulu Fringe, a non-girly one:


This time, I used crepe paper to die-cut my fringe. It works best on thin paper or flexible material to create perfect loops.
I really hope you liked all the inspiration this week! I definitely enjoyed creating with these dies!
Now check out the Winnie & Walter blog for more projects to inspire you. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Winnie & Walter A Week To Die For Day 3


It's day 3 of the Winnie & Walter "a week to die for" and we are back with more inspiration on how to use the wonderful cutaways. Today's focus is on Big Bang Confetti Cutaway + The Party Confetti Cutaway. I used Big Bang Confetti for my card:


I started with a panel of dark blue cardstock and die-cut the large stitched rectangle from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways and afterwards the smaller stitched rectangle to create a frame. Then I adhered it to my cardbase. Now I die-cut the elements from Big Bang Confetti Cutaway from light pink, dark pink, dark blue, mint and gold foiled cardstock. I adhered them into the frame, trimming some for the edges. Finally I die-cut the word "celebrate" from The Big, the Bold and Party Cutaways and adhered it with foam tape.
Find more inspiration on the Winnie & Walter blog! I hope to see you come back tomorrow for our last day of the "a week to die for". Thanks for visiting!
