Winnie & Walter's April/May 2015 release - Day#1

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day #1 sneak peek of Winnie & Walter's April/May new release.


Today we are premiering The Big and the Bold series two new stamp sets and dies - The Big, the Bold and Comfort stamp set and The Big, the Bold and Friends stamp set. They have coordinating cutaways! woohoo! The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaway and The Big, the Bold and Comfort Cutaway.

I have two cards to share today. One using each of the stamp sets. My dies have not arrived yet. So my cards do not showcase any dies unfortunately. I promise to share more projects using the dies when they arrive.

Here is my first card using The Big, the Bold and Friends sentiment as the focal point.

Friend card

I have black heat embossed the sentiment on white cardstock panel. Then I have framed the sentiment using a new stamp set which will be previewed tomorrow called Lola's Bouquet by Joni Andaya. The beautiful sentiment required some beautiful flowers and foliage to frame and draw the eyes to it. I chose to use two different greys, two mint hues and black combination to stamp the flowers and foliage.

I then trimmed the panel, added couple of black strips of cardstock before adhering the panel to grey cardstock. Addition of black cardstock to the panel brings the black from the sentiment and the black Onyx sequins from Pretty Pink Posh together. I just  LOVE the colour combination.

And here is my second card using  the sentiments from The Big, the Bold and Comfort stamp set as the focal point.

Prayers card day 1

 Again, I did exactly the same procedure as the previous card except I have made it vintage style.  Sentiment is the focal point which is framed with flowers from another new stamp set which will be previewed day after tomorrow called Abby's Garden. I have coloured the flowers using distress markers, sponged distress ink on the edges then distressed the edges of the panel using scissors before adhering on the cream card base which is sponged with distress inks on the edges as well.

I so enjoy all of your creations and W&W stamps and dies.

FYI, when going to the W&W blog page for the Give Aways...the 'click here' links give me a message that the 'page does not exist'. Today and tomorrow are the deadlines for entering.

MA said...

EDITED: Ooooops, I guess I was on the W&W blog page a little too early. The Give Away links are now working.

Good luck everyone!
