Today we are premiering another sentiment stamp set in the Big and Bold series called The Big, the Bold and Seasons.  This set comes with the big bold brush stroke names of seasons fonts and smaller adjectives describing the seasons. Then there are smaller images coordinating with seasons as well. On my cards below, I have used the coordinating images and sentiment.

Spring card


Summer card


Autumn card

Winter card

I have made four cards for the four seasons. Used the small images in the season colours and stamped on the card panel. Then stamped the sentiment below. I then mounted the card panel on coloured cardstock base. The cards are accented with the gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Lawn Fawn.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Anything Goes Reminder

Hello everybody,

There is still time to play along Curtain Call Challenge - Anything Goes.


Here is my second card for the challenge.

Celebrate card

The background is created using stencil and sponging inks. I have sponged some lighter and darker shade of the same ink to give some shading. I added some glitter to the butterflies. Then stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things on white cardstock, trimmed and mounted on the card front using foam adhesives with bunched up thread under the sentiment panel. I love the colour combo in this card and how the gray big sentiment brings the rest of the colours together.

So come and play Curtain Call Anything Goes Challenge with me. There are so many prizes to giveaway as we are celebrating our 1st Anniversary.

Thanks for stopping by!

Premiering The Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant

Hey my dear friends, Welcome back to day #2 of Winnie & Walter July new release post.

weblogo

Today we are premiering another new stamp set called It's a Wonderful Pennant. This stamp set has so many patterned triangle pennant which can be used not just as pennant but in various other ways. Here on my card I have used them as Christmas trees combining with the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set premiering yesterday


Joyful blessings vertical

I have white heat embossed the outline triangle pennant on watercolour paper. Then watercoloured them using Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn distress inks. I then cut them out and layered them to the center of the card panel. I have used the gorgeous gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to add festivity to the trees. I have used the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set using fog ink form Simon Says Stamp. Simple but the watercoloured triangles add to the punch.

Joyful blessings1

I have another card here using It's a Wonderful Pennant and The Big, the Bold and Blessing cut files

Holiday Blessings1

I die cut the cut files using my Silhouette then sponged some distress inks on them. I have mounted the pennants using the foam adhesives,  blessings die cut on top. I stamped the holiday sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, made the banner ends and adhered. Finally to add to the Christmas festivity, I have added the golden star confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

Premiering the Big, the Bold and Blessings


Hello! Welcome to the July new  release from Winnie & Walter

weblogo

This is the first day of release and we are featuring a new stamp set from The Big and the Bold series called The Big, the Bold and Blessings. This stamp set keeps with the gorgeous brush stroke style of large sentiments paired with smaller sentiments in a courier font. I love this set. Here is my card using this stamp set.

Grateful card 1

I have heat embossed the sentiments using copper coloured Zing embossing powder and used the flowers from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom stamp set to stamp the flowers and leaves. I have used the beautiful flower and Sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to accent. Layering with pattern papers is something I am fond of at the moment. So I picked pattern papers with similar colours to the flowers for layering. Here is a closeup.

Tag You're...it Challenge #2

Hey everybody,

Hope you enjoyed playing along the Tag you're It challenge #1 with Virginia's Tags. Today, I have a new tag challenge for you from Tag You're It Challenge. The inspirational tag for this challenge is from the very talented Laura Bassen. This is Laura;s gorgeous tag.


I love Laura's use of colours on the background with emboss resist. The gorgeous vellum leaves and the offset sentiment is awesome. I tried to recreate that on my tag below.

XOXO

I have used Hero Arts/ Studio Calico diamond background stamp on the background which I have white heat embossed. Then I colourewashed three distress ink - Worn Liptstick, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries. I love how distress inks blend. For the elements on the cluster, I have used the Lily Die Namics from MFT which I coloured using copics. The wood veneer leaf is from Simon Says Stamp June card kit. The vellum leaves are die cut using Palm Dies from Hero Arts. The bird cage is diecut using Memory Box cut out of silver glitter paper. The XOXO sentiment is die cut using MFT Hugs & Kisses die namics which is stacked glued and brushed with Wink of Stella pen. I then mounted this tag on my card front. I love the grey background on the card front which makes the card pops. The black glitter strip coordinates with the black sentiment. really love how my tag turned out inspired by Laura's tag.

xoxo card flat

Now, head over to Tag You're It Challenge Blog to see how Laura's tag inspired  our designers and our guest designers as well.

Now it is your turn to play. Cannot wait to see your take :)

CAS(E) this Sketch #85

Second post for today. I always have two post of Thursdays. My first post is from CASE Study Challenge #200. And this is my CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge post. I have a new sketch for you today.


The sketch is so versatile and the best part it they are designed by CAS(E) this Sketch design team member N@ Ali. This is why I love CAS(E) this Sketch sketches. Agree with me? lol!

Here is my take on the sketch.

Hey friend card

I have used the stamp set from Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit to make my card for the sketch. I love the stamp set that came in the kit. The scribbled flowers and leaves are my favourite. I white heat embossed the flowers and leaves on watercolour paper. They used distress inks Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries to colour the flowers and Crushed Olives and Shabby Shutters to colour the leaves. I then cut them out and clustered them on the white cardstock panel. I also stamped the curly tendrils using Fog Simon Says Stamp ink. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set stamped in black. Well, what will I do without Pretty Pink Posh's gorgeous sequins? lol! Here I have used Mossy Green, Pink Peonies and Raspberry 6mm sequins on my card. You can find all the pretty sequins at Pretty Pink Posh shop and at Simon Says Stamp Shop.

It is you turn to play along. Head over to CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other designers did with the sketch and picture. You can also find the linky to link your project at the blog.

Have fun crafting!

CASE Study Challenge #200

Hello, Hi, Hiya and G'day!

This is a scheduled post but by now I should be back home. Yay! Home sweet home! To those of you wondering where I had been, I had gone to India to visit my unwell Father-in-law. He is much better now except for some residual symptoms post head injury.

Anyway, I have another of Shari's card for you as CASE Study muse today. I never get tired of CASing Shari's cards. I think you will agree with me here, right? 


I love the layout of Shari's card and all the white spaces. With that as my inspiration, here is my CASEd card.

Hello card

This is another no stamp card. All I have used are white cardstock and embellishments. I used some of my old American Craft Dear Lizzy sticker book and fabric stickers on my card. I followed the layout of Shari's card for the placement of the stickers. Finally embellished with the gorgeous gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I really love how my CASEd card turned out. Hope you  like it.


Come and play along with us.

Here is my take on Anything Goes Challenge for Curtain Call Inspirational Challenge.

Celebrate this day 1

I have used the flowers and leaves stamp from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and the Extras stamp set to create the flower background. I stamped the solid image first and then stamped the outline slightly offset. I love this. This creates the not so perfect handmade feel to the card. I did the exact same thing for the banner as well and cut the banner out. Stamped the sentiment and mounted using foam adhesive. Finally added some gorgeous gold sparkly enamel dots. I am inspired by the colours from the inspirational photo for my card. Quick and easy to make. Can do multiples of it in different colours easily to make a card set.
