Winnie & Walter October Release Day One

Premiere of Eat Drink Gingerbread Man + 
Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Swirl +
 Creative Screenings

 Hello there!

I am so excited to be a part of the Winnie and Walter October Release! I will be a guest with them all week! For today's projects we are highlighting two stamp sets and a brand-new product called Creative Screenings! The Creative Screenings are stencils and masks… I am so excited about these, they are so cool and super durable! They are some of the nicest stencils I have ever used. I love all of the designs, and you will see them throughout my projects this week. I just couldn't stop using them!

The first stamp set we are highlighting today is called Eat, Drink, Gingerbread Man. It is a small stamp set full of possibility. I used the Creative Screenings to also create the speech bubble for the gingerbread man and the diagonals on the side.

The next stamp set is called Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone. I used it to make a wrap for a clear box. I wanted to highlight the look of peppermint candy so I cut out the center of the wrap. I also used just part of the sentiment from the Eat, Drink, Gingerbread Man stamp set.

For my card to highlight the Creative Screenings, I first did a watercolor wash on watercolor paper and after allowing that to dry I inked up the back side of the hello stencil mask from The Big, The Bold and The Happy Creative Screenings with gold Delicata ink, carefully placed it on the cardstock and ran it through my embossing machine to create a faux letterpress technique. It really is super cool.

Well, that's all for today! Tomorrow we will be highlighting 3 more new stamp sets. Hooray!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
