Winnie & Walter Rerun #3: Bubble Talk

Hello everybody! I am back with a Winnie & Walter card for the third rerun featuring the set Bubble Talk. It is easy to create trendy projects with this set, but I wanted to make something feminine and floral:


I colored the flowers with Inktense Pencils. Still practicing with those! The speech bubble was stamped with grey ink, then I masked it and stamped the flower and the leaves.
The butterflies are die-cut from vellum, using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways.


You will find more samples using Bubble Talk on the Winnie & Walter blog, be sure to check out what everybody created for today!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge Eleven: Photo Inspiration sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh

Hey everyone! It's time for the new Sparkle & Shine Challenge, sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh. I just love this photo inspiration:


Isn't it beautiful? Although I thought it very tempting to create something with gorgeous flowers, I chose a cute card for this challenge:


I wanted to play with my new Mama Elephant set for this. I never thought I would like that much orange, but I actually do! I hope you'll join us for this challenge!



Thanks for visiting today!

Secret Agent Birthday Party

Hey everybody! I hope you are all well! I've been busy with various stuff - celebrating my girl's 7th birthday was the funniest of all, then there were difficult things happening and some secret things I am working on that I can not yet share. But for now I am sharing the fun we had on the 7th birthday party. This year we had a secret agent party. Some may say it is not very girly - but we always have boys and girls for the parties, so it is suitable for everybody. The children loved it! And detective/agent seems to be very popular at that age. These were the invitations I made:


I created the cardbase using the WRMK envelope punch board to make it look like a file. Then I stamped all the elements from the PTI Secret Agent stamp set. Very simple and fun. Here is the inside:


I typed the text on my computer and printed it out before stamping the "confidential".

For the party, we prepared a lot of games for the kids. And we chose an authentic outfit to welcome them:


These were the missions they had to accomplish:


They had to lift fingerprints and identify the suspect, had to decipher a text, find hidden letters, had to dismantle a (water)bomb, go through the laser beam maze and do some target practice. Oh, and they had to disguise themselves to stake out the suspect:


The "suspect" had to try very hard not to break out laughing when he came into a garden full of disguised little ones with mustaches, hats and newspapers with spy holes :o)

I'll be back soon with my regular card posts! Thanks for stopping by today!
