STAMPtember Exclusive: Winnie & Walter


Hey everyone! I am so glad you are stopping by today, because I have three cards to share with you, using a beautiful, exclusive stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and Winnie & Walter.

This is the amazing set I am talking about:



I wanted to create three different looks using the same stamps and layout. Here is the first one, going bold:

I trimmed a panel of black & white striped pp slightly smaller than a black card base and adhered it. Then I stamped the large flower and the leaves onto cardstock, colored them with Copics and cut them out. I adhered everything with foam tape and finished the card off with black sequins.
For the second card, I chose soft and pretty:


Here I stamped/heat-embossed the large flower repeatedly onto the background and colored them softly with pink watercolor. Then I stamped/heat-embossed the flower onto another piece of cardstock and colored it, too. I stamped and heat-embossed the leaves onto vellum and cut everything out. Now I adhered the elements to the card, adding some twisted thread underneath the circle and popping everything up with foam tape. To finish this card off, I adhered gold sequins.
On the last card, I wanted to play around with watercolors and get a bit messy:


I created a watercolor wash on a panel of watercolor paper and adhered it to the black card. Then I created a pink and a green watercolor wash on another piece of paper, stamped the flower and leaves, cut everything out and adhered it with foam tape. This card was finished off with drops of gold spray ink and various sequins.
Isn't this set gorgeous? I love that huge flower! It is available here at Simon Says Stamp. Get it quickly before it is gone!
Thanks for visiting!
