I had a whole other idea for this card, and as such began by stamping some of the images from the set with white pigment ink onto a panel of white cardstock. I heat set the panel and then blended three different Distress Inks over the inked areas, hoping that the pigment ink would act as a resist. No such luck!
My card then had to take a different turn as I wasn’t seeing the results I was hoping to, so after I’d finished blending the Distress Inks, I spritzed some water droplets and noticed the white pigment ink beginning to run. I didn’t mind the effect so I quickly heat set the panel, and spritzed a little more water and heat set again.
I then re-stamped the images but this time with black dye ink, and while it was still a little damp, I brushed over some Perfect Pearls – you can’t see the effect so well in the photos, but it looks great in real life!
I trimmed the panel down and foam mounted it to a white card base, stamped the sentiment with Versamark onto a strip of black cardstock and heat set in white. I foam mounted that to the card front and to finish, I added some Gold Mix sequins.

Hello, hello! It’s the third day of the Winnie & Walter January / February release, and you’re in for another treat!
Day 3 is for the premiere of Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamps and cutaways, and Sketchy Thoughts stamps and cutaways – here’s my card:
I stamped the various speech bubbles from the Sketchy Thoughts set with Distress Inks and then stamped some co-ordinating sentiments from the same set, but with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
The stamped panel was then trimmed down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted to the front.
For a bit of interest, I added some cork and wood embellishments along with a sprinkling of sequins.
Don’t forget to check out the projects from Julie on the Winnie & Walter blog, along with the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent. The new release will be available at 22.00 CST on Friday, 3rd of February!

Hello there! Time to showcase another awesome group of stamp and die sets for the Winnie & Walter January / February Release!
Day 2 is for the premiere of Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses, Sending You with Evelin T Designs, Sentimental: Endearments, Sentimental: Love and Essentials: Lana Cutaways. We’re also showcasing From the Bottom of My Heart, which you can get for free with a qualifying purchase over $25, for a limited time! Here’s my first card:
I began by stamping the back of the Bed of Roses stamp with a combination of Distress Inks onto a panel of white cardstock, and spritzing with water to get the inks moving. I then flipped the stamp the right way around and stamped the roses with black dye ink.
The panel was heat set, trimmed down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted to a white card base. The sentiment comes from Sentimental: Love, was heat embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock, and foam mounted to the card front.
To finish up, I added a few gold sequins. Here’s my second card:
I really love the bold nature of the focal sentiment, so wanted the background to be fairly neutral. I used a panel that I’d created by stamping images from In Bloom: Anna’s Flora with Dylusions Ink Sprays and spritzing lightly with water.
I trimmed the panel down to a square and foam mounted it to a white card base. I then stamped the large sentiment from From the Bottom of My Heart with black dye ink, and then again with some Delicata Golden Glitz. This gives you a nice rock ‘n’ roll effect 😉
Again, I added the gold sequins to finish up the design.
I hope you get a chance to check out the projects from Julie on the Winnie & Walter blog, along with the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent. The new release will be available at 22.00 CST on Friday, 3rd of February!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the start of the January / February release week for Winnie & Walter!
Day 1 is the Premier of The Big, the Bold and Baby stamp set / cutaways, Scenery: Stripes 2, In a Word: Baby Cutaway, In a Word: Congrats Cutaway and In a Word: Precious Script Cutaway – as usual, there are some really lovely sentiments in these sets! Here’s my first card:
I took one of the border stamps from Scenery: Stripes 2 and mounted it onto the door of my MISTI, with a bit of a curve rather than straight on. I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the image in different colour using Distress Inks. The gridded paper that comes with the MISTI really helped me to keep each impression equally spaced apart.
Once I’d stamped the whole background, I trimmed the panel down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted it to the card front. The sentiment comes from words in The Big, the Bold and Baby stamp set and was heat embossed in white onto black cardstock.
I foam mounted the sentiment onto the card front and finished off with some wood veneer embellishments. Here’s my second card:
I began by creating a colourful background simply by swiping a range of Tombow markers onto a piece of white cardstock and then spritzing with water to blend them together. After heat setting the panel, I then stamped each of the borders from Scenery: Stripes 2 with black dye ink onto the panel.
The panel was trimmed down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted to the front. I then used the Welcome die from an older release (The Big, the Bold and Blessings cutaways) and die-cut it out of the copper foil cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
The second part of the sentiment comes from The Big, the Bold and Baby and was heat embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock.
Be sure check out projects from Julie and the rest of the Talent on the Winnie & Walter blog. The new release will be available at 22.00 CST on Friday, 3rd of February!

This set has got to be one of the most versatile ones I have ever used, especially when paired with non-seasonal colours – I opted to go back to my trusted Distress Inks and stamp one of the outline tree images with rainbow colours.
I began by die-cutting an aperture out of a panel of white cardstock using the Pixelated Heart die and stamping a sentiment from the same set with Versafine Onyx Black ink underneath it. I then marked up some guidelines on a white card base for where I would stamp the tree in rotation in rainbow colours.
Once the stamping was complete, I foam mounted the die-cut panel to the card base, allowing the design to show through. To finish, added some Gold Mix sequins.

I’m over at the Neat & Tangled blog today to share a card using the a couple of stamp sets from the November Release!
If like me, you like to make patterns with your stamps, then this is a great card for you! I took just one stamp from the Scandinavian Prints Christmas set and repeatedly stamped it on a panel of white cardstock.
I began by making a few guidelines on the panel to make it easy to follow as I stamped the circular pattern with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the panel down to slightly smaller than my card base and die-cut a small aperture in the bottom right corner.
I lined up a white card base and the die-cut panel in my MISTI and marked out where I would need to stamp the sentiment, so that it could show through the aperture. The large sentiment comes from May Your Holidays Be and was stamped with Festive Berries Distress ink straight onto the card base.
I foam mounted the die-cut panel to the card base and moved on to the sentiment banner, which was from the same set. I stamped it onto a piece of pattern paper with Versamark, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I used the co-ordinating die to die-cut the banner out and then foam mounted to the card front.
To finish, I added some die-cut hearts and some Gold Mix sequins.

Today, the Winnie & Walter Design Team are showcasing more of the November Release on this awesome blog hop, and you have a chance to win $30.00 credit to the w&w shop! Here’s my card:
I created this really simple wreath design using the In Bloom: Frenchy’s Florals set by Angelica Suarez. I drew around an oval die on a panel of white cardstock to create a frame for my wreath, and then stamped the sentiment in the centre with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Starting at the top of the oval, I then stamped some of the floral images all the way around the frame using Distress Inks. For a bit of dimension, I used the ‘Rock ‘n’ ‘Roll’ technique to pick up two ink colours onto the stamp.
I stamped some of the smaller images to fill in the spaces once I’d stamped the entire wreath and then added a bit of sparkle with sequins.
To finish, I foam mounted the panel to a white card base.
For a chance to win a prize, follow along on the rest of the blog hop, leaving comments along the way by Monday, November 21, 2016 at noon CST- five randomly chosen commenters will receive $30.00 credit to the w&w shop.

Today is the fourth day of the November release from Neat & Tangled, and it ends with some fabulous stamp sets!
I’m showcasing May Your Holidays Be, and its co-ordinating die:
There are a couple of cool sentiments in the set along with a large bauble – the centre of the bauble is blank so you can choose which sentiment you’d like to use.
I began by creating a background panel, using the image of a large sparkle. I stamped it repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock with Distress Inks, and the loosely added some water to get the ink moving.
I heat set and then went around the outside of each stamped impression with a black marker and quickly sketched some lines. I then stamped the large bauble along with one of the sentiment from the set in the centre of the panel and die-cut it out.
I adhered part of the panel straight down onto a white card base and then foam mounted the bauble in the middle. To finish, I coloured the bauble in with some Gold Wink of Stella.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the November Release from Neat and Tangled this week! Pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – all the sets that we have showcased this week will be available in the shop tomorrow at 8am EST!

It’s the third day of the Neat & Tangled November release, and we are showcasing some more fabulous products!
Day 3 is for the Star Coverplate and Stencil, both equally as gorgeous as each other. I played with the coverplate to whip up a simple birthday card:
I began by creating a Distress Ink background and heat set to dry. I then ran the Star coverplate through my die-cutting machine three times with white cardstock and glued each piece together to form a thicker embellishment.
I then trimmed a section out of the centre and adhered it to the Distress Ink panel. I foam mounted this to a white card base and then used the Journalling Alpha Numbers to die-cut the 45 and adhered it down.
I also ran the coverplate through some Copper foil cardstock and used some of the pieces to fill in the design on the card front.
To finish up, I sprinkled with a few Merlot Mix sequins. Here’s my second card, this time using the Star Stencil:
I taped the stencil down on top of a panel of white cardstock and simply sponged through two shades of Distress Ink, being careful not to take the ink all the way to the edges.
I then adhered the panel down to a white card base and looked for matching pattern paper for the tree embellishments. These were die-cut using the Scandinavian Christmas Prints dies and foam mounted to the card front.
The sentiment comes from the co-ordinating Scandinavian Christmas Prints set and was stamped with Versamark onto a piece of black cardstock, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.
The sentiment was trimmed down and also foam mounted to the card front. To finish, I added some Gold Mix sequins.
Pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – all the sets that we are showcasing this week will be available in the shop from Friday, 11 November at 8am EST!
