Premiering Winnie & Walter October New Release Day #1

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Winnie & Walter's October new release premiere! This release going to be HUGE and AWESOME! Today is day #1 of the premiering the new products. Make you self a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!

On day #1 we are premiering three beautiful stamp set and five new word dies. The stamp sets are called In Bloom: Anna's Flora, In Bloom: Elsa's Flora and In Bloom Renee's Leaves. The dies are called In a Word: Home, In a Word: Joy, In a Word: Merry, In a Word: Peace and In a Word: Thanks Cutaways.

The stamp sets are beautiful with lots of floral and leaves outline images. These are the perfect for watercolouring, colouring with copics, noline colouring.... I LOVE them so much. A must have in you collection of floral stamps. The Cutaways are big, bold and perfect on any card.

I have couple of cards to share using today's premiered products. My first card uses In Bloom: Renee's Leaves and In a Word: Thanks Cutaway. I used Autumn/Fall colour to make my card.

I started with watercolour cardstock and gold heat embossed the leaves and nuts randomly. Then I used Zig clean brush pens to colour them directly and blend. No water used inside because I wanted the colours to be intense. I particularly like the green and orange blend on the leaves. For the background, I have added some brown colour for shadows and highlighting. I then trimmed the panel quarter of an inch smaller than the card front and roughed the edges with scissors.

For the sentiment, I die cut the In a Word: Thanks using a brown shimmer cardstock I had in my stash and three more using white cardstock. I stacked glued them to give dimension and adhered on the panel. To add texture to the autumn/fall themed card, I wrapped around some jute thread and made a bow. This panel is adhered on a brown card base. Here is a closeup of the card.

Hope you like my first card. Now my second card is a Christmas card!

Merry Merry Christmas#1

I wanted to do some masking to cluster the images from In Bloom: Elsa's Flora stamp set to make a focal point. So I stamped the Poinsettia to start the cluster, masked the image to stamp the leaf, masked the leaf to stamp more leaves, then berries and sprigs etc. I then coloured them with copic markers. Then I used In a Word: Merry cutaway to die cut right in the middle of the cluster. I also die cut four more of the Merry using white cardstock then stacked and glued them all with the coloured image die cut on the top.  I adhered an adhesive sheet behind the negative panel and in laid the die stck back in place including all the bits and pieces. Note: I did not stack glue the bits and pieces. Here is closeup of the inlaid diecut.

I stamped the secondary sentiment from another new stamp set on a strip of white cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. To add to the festivity, I brush the inlaid die cut with Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen. I stamped the woodgrain image from a new stamp set using brown ink towards the bottom of the card front. Then, I trimmed an inch off the bottom of the main panel and adhered  the panel on the card front using foam adhesives. I also added glossy accent to the berries.
