Winnie & Walter January Release Day 1

It's my favorite time again - premieres of the new Winnie & Walter release are starting today!! You'll love this release! Again :o)
It's all about birthdays, because we are celebrating Winnie & Walter's first birthday. Today we'll start with a fabulous, must-have sentiment set called The Big, the Bold and Party. Here comes a card I made with it:

I wanted to show all the fun words included in this set. It gives you so many options to create custom sentiments! First, I prepared a panel of watercolor paper to be slightly smaller than my black cardbase. I inked it using various Distress Inks and an ink blending tool. Then I stamped the small words. Using the mask Scenery: Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings, I added some stars to the background with my inking tool. After everything was dried, I stamped the two big words and heat-embossed them using gold glitter embossing powder. And finally, I applied droplets of gold spray ink. After I had adhered the panel to my cardbase, I finished the card off with gold enamel dots.

Like it? Wait until you see what the rest of the DT made! And the wonderful sets coming! Now you will want to hop to the Winnie & Walter blog. There are prizes! Here is the big give-away. Here is the GIGANTIC give-awayAnd here today's premiere! Enjoy and good luck! I hope to see you tomorrow for the next premieres!

It's a Guy Thing

I quickly wanted to share a card I will be entering to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "IT'S A GUY THING".

A very simple and clean card. Although my husband would probably say it is not clean enough for a man.

I used Lawn Fawn's float my boat stamps and dies. First, I trimmed a piece of rustic cream cardstock (rustic sounded so manly!) slightly smaller than my cardbase. Then I stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. I die-cut a pinked square from woodgrain patterned paper and adhered it to the panel. Then I stamped the anchor, die-cut it and tied-on the "marine rope". Finally I adhered the anchor with foam tape.
I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
