Winnie & Walter: Premiere of Stampets: Penguin + Stampets: The Gift + Stampets: Turkey

Wow! This has been an awesome Premiere week with Winnie & Walter, hasn't it? Today we have three stamp sets to show off! They are super fun!


I used the Stampets: Turkey set for this card. The turkey is SUPER cute, but I wanted to showcase one of the awesome little stamps, so I choose this super cute pie. I combined it with one of the new cutaways for a fun Thanksgiving card!

With Love North Pole tag

I used the Stampets: Penguin and the Stampets: The Gift sets together to create the little mini scene on this tag. It's a fun little holiday tag, I think.

Be sure to head over to the Winnie & Walter blog for LOTS of inspiration AND a chance to win these great sets! You won't want to miss out on the cuteness you will see! These sets have LOTS of images, so there will be some variety for SURE! Also, the products go live tonight around 8pm Eastern, so keep an eye on the Winnie and Walter store to fulfill that wish list!

Winnie & Walter: Premiere of Happy Christmas + The Big, the Bold and the Merry + Cutaways

Welcome to Day 3 of the Winnie & Walter Premiere! I am excited to be showing of two awesome new stamp sets and CUTAWAYS!!! Yes, that's right, folks, Winnie & Walter now has steel cut dies. I may have screamed a little when I found out. You are welcome to do the same. For reals, though. Go ahead...I'll wait.

Now THAT was a great happy dance. Well done, my friend. And now I am excited to share a couple of cards I created using these fabulous new stamps and dies!

Peace & Joy

For this card I went with a classic color scheme and kept the design simple. I love how the negative die cuts look on this one! I popped up the white panel to add dimension and adhered the red ampersand directly to the panel. I am so in love with these dies it is not even funny. For reals, though.

Peace & Joy (detail)

For my second card today I combined The Big The Bold, and The Merry with Happy Christmas. I love how perfectly this image worked with the end of the Christmas stamp!

Happy Xmas

I used the same basic color scheme for this card (It is my favorite for Christmas, after all. LOL!), only this time I added a touch of gold by stamping some areas in gold Delicata ink and adding a few sequins. SHINY!

Merry Xmas (detail)

I created a pretty Thankgiving card using the Simon Says Stamp Feast of Thanksgiving stamp set. I love this stamp set so much! I used a bit of masking magic to layer my elements before coloring them and I really like how it all came together.

Winnie & Walter: Premiere of Mini Scenery: Into the Woods + Scenery: Big Bang Flurries + Winter Woodland

Thank you all for joining me on day 1 of the Winnie and Walter release! Today we have some more great stamp sets to share with you! I super love today's sets! I really do! For my first card I used both the Mini Scenery: Into the Woods stamp and the Big Bang Flurries WITH a sentiment from Winter Wonderland. WHOA! Three sets in one card. Yup. Totally did that.

Just For You Woodland

I stamped the background in black VersaFine ink and then stamped some snowflakes over it with VersaMark. I heat embossed the entire thing using a sparkle embossing powder from Stampendous. I just love how shiny and sparkly it is! I used Distress inks, brushed across the card, to get the look of real birch trees. Finally, I added a Bossy Joscie flair piece as embellishment on the card. YAY!

Just for You Holiday (detail)

You can really see the shine in this shot. It looks so pretty in person! I promise!

Season's Greetings

For my second card today, I wanted to use that gorgeous and HUGE tree stamp, but I also wanted to do something less traditional, so I opted to stamp the image in black ink and I used red stars to decorate the tree. The snowflakes from Big Bang Flurries made a great background for this one!

Be sure to head on over to the Winnie & Walter blog for more inspiration and to enter to WIN!!!

Have a Happy!


Winnie & Walter Premier: Eat Drink Gingerbread Man + Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone + Creative Screenings

It's release time with Winnie & Walter and it is a good one, folks! Today we are showing off THREE awesome new products! The Eat, Drink Gingerbread Man stamp set, the Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone (awesome!!!) stamp, and...wait for it... the ALL NEW Creative Screenings line! Yup, folks, we've got stencils. And they are awesome.


For this card I used the Speech Bubbles Creative Screening stencil with the Peppermint Zone stamped over it. I then inked in the bubble for a more solid look so I could stamp and emboss that wicked cute sentiment over it. I stamped the 'milk' glass twice, masking one, then colored them to look like beer...happy beer. 'Cause, apparently beer is happy now.


A bit of Wink of Stella makes it sparkle. I like sparkle. Lots.


In addition to the stencil portion, some of the Creative Screenings also have the fabulous positive screen, as well! I created this neat ornament by temporarily adhering the screen and then watercoloring around it. I die cut the oval (Spellbinders Pierced Ovals) and free hand cut the little silver thingy (yup...that's totally what they are called) from silver paper to create the ornament. SO MUCH FUN!


Makes sure you RUN (don't walk... seriously... run...) over to the Winnie & Walter blog for more inspiration!!! Seriously. Lots. Go.

Have a Happy!!!

Why are you still HEEEERE? GO! NOW!

For reals, though.

We Want Candy!

Because Candy.

Really. I love the stuff. That being the case, Halloween is kind of like crazy wicked awesome in my mind. It's an entire holiday centered around CANDY! How could that possibly be bad? For reals, though. Thus, the sentiment expressed on this little project I created with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

We Want Candy

WHAT?! I know. Those ghosts are just too adorbs to even handle. They have BOWTIES, people! Well, they don't have to, the bowtie comes in the set, but why would you not add a bowtie when the opportunity presents? I mean, for reals, though?

Ghostie bag

The little ghostie on the treat bag is just peeking in... he obviously isn't dressed yet, as he is trying to snag that bowtie from the seal. Obviously.

K.... so... anyway.... I used the super cute Spooky stamp set for my shenanigans today. Be sure to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog for LOTS of awesome inspiration! YAY!

Have a Happy!


A Dark and Stormy Night

Okay, so picture this... dark clouds overhead, it's Halloween night... and Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalows are EVERYWHERE! Bwahahahahaaaa!

Okay, you're right. Bitty Bungalows are adorable not scary, but I LOVE THEM! And I love Halloween. And I loved using them for this Halloween card. K? K. So there.


I stamped and colored these adorable houses in all greys to play with the spooky Halloween neighborhood feel. I then die cut the clouds (which are actually the CAS-ual Fridays Bubble Labels) from wood veneer and inked them to make them look dark and stormy (and adorable, yes, we've covered that... LOL!).


This was a fun card to create and I love that it doesn't even use Halloween stamps. And that bird... that bird SO makes me laugh for some reason. I have no idea why, but every time I see him sitting there on the house he just cracks me up, so... basically he wins.

It is going to be a very busy week on the blog this week! I hope you are ready and excited to stick around!

Have a Happy!
