Winnie and Walter

Featuring Winnie and Walter products

Belated birthday wishes to you

Happy Saturday everyone!

My new distress oxide inks arrived this morning and I have spent the day happily playing with them.

Here’s the first card I made using a die by Memory Box, a stencil by Studio Light and a sentiment from Winnie & Walter.

I’m entering this into the current Casology challenge where the theme is ‘late’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Big Bear Hugs

 

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘hug’! Here is my take using a stamp from Winnie & Walter and a sentiment die from Mama Elephant.

I coloured the bears with my Prismacolor pencils – I’ve still got a lot to learn with these , but I really love them. May need to invest in a bigger set soon! I added a touch of Tonic Nuvo Aqua shimmer to the tails – well bears have glittery tails, don’t they!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 10 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 10 was Winnie & Walter and the DT had come up with tons of amazing tags! I took the snowman tag that Tracey had made and used that as my inspiration for my little scene!

I stamped the images and then masked them before creating my Distress Oxide background. After I had applied a generous amount of water droplets to the background, I removed the mask and coloured the images with my Twinkling H2Os. This was another super quick tag to make – even thought the mask for the branch was rather fiddly!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Deer, I love you

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ink blending and Stamplorations is our sponsor.

I love ink blending especially with distress inks and distress oxides. I’ve been blending a lot of autumnal/Halloween colours recently so I wanted to use some different colours for this card. I ended up using Tattered Rose, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio. Don’t think I’ve ever used this combo before!

I used the Poppy Stamps Playful Deer Collage die to cut my card base and then stuck the blended background behind it. To finish off my card, I added a Winnie & Walter sentiment and a few hearts that I had cut from glitter cardstock.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Kaja from Kajcyika Crafts. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Spotlight on you

Hi there!

The theme for this month’s Seven Hills Crafts challenge is ‘spotlight it’ and here is my entry. Honestly, I had all month to come up with something and I only just made it before the challenge deadline!

Anyway, for my card, I used two products from Seven Hills Crafts – a stencil from Echo Park and a sentiment from Winnie & Walter. I masked off the heart as I was stencilling with grey shades of distress ink and then used the reverse of the mask when it was time to add the colour to the heart.

To finish off the card, I added the sentiment and a few clear sequins. A super simple card, but the technique is so effective, don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn in the air

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. The days are getting shorter and the weather is definitely crisper – yes, autumn is in air here in the UK so it seems apt that this fortnight’s theme is ‘Autumn Colours’. Uniko is our sponsor.

For my card, I used a stamp from my favourite Simon Says Stamp set (Fractile Leaves) plus a sentiment from Winnie & Walter which I inked up with Delicata brown shimmer ink which I covered in clear embossing powder.

Can we just take a moment to admire that Delicata ink? It is soooo shimmery! Absolutely gorgeous!

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencil and then blended with baby oil. First time doing that and I love the effect – will be using it again! Anyway, I resisted the urge to add some bling. I think this could make quite a good maculine card, do you?

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – clean and simple.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by our Guest Designer, the super-talented Hannelie from Desert Diva. I’m sure many of you already know her and her amazing creations – but for those of you who don’t, you should definitely drop by her site – you are in for a treat!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
