Winnie & Walter October Release Day Three

Premiere of Happy Christmas + 
The Big, the Bold, and the Merry + 

Hello there!

Welcome to Day 3 of the Winnie and Walter October Release! I am so super excited to share today's premieres with you! We get to share a brand new product: DIES!!! I seriously squealed with delight when I opened my package! I LOVE dies, and the new Cutaways are AWESOME! They coordinate with The Big and Bold sets. I just want to use them on everything! 

But first:
My very favorite stamp set of this release... maybe my favorite stamp set in the history of 2014! Happy Christmas. I am telling you, there is so much packed into this stamp set, it is just the best! For an extra sneak peek of a card using this set, check out my post here

For this project, I started with some shipping tags that I covered with vintage Christmas sheet music. I then sponged on some Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and then stenciled on some stars using the new Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings and Golden Glitz Delicata ink. I stamped some of the tiny images from the Happy Christmas set onto the cardstock before I folded up my rosettes, and used coordinating images for the centers. The sentiments on the fishtail banners are all from the Happy Christmas set as well. 

Up next is a set we have all been waiting for: The Big, The Bold and the Merry! I love this one so much too! As you can see, the Classic Star Creative Screenings came out to play again! For this card, I heat embossed the 'merry christmas' in clear and then used some Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress Inks to create a watercolor effect. I selectively applied embossing paste to the star stencil after all of that was dry. 

For my last card, I wanted to try something a little different... I used the Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings, but I rotated it so that my stripes would be horizontal. I sponged my inks onto white cardstock and then applied Golden Glitz Delicata ink over the Persuasion Script Creative Screenings. I used The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways for the bold sentiment, cutting it 3 times out of black cardstock to give extra dimension.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you are having as much fun as I am looking at all of the awesome projects by the amazing Winnie and Walter Design Team! See you again tomorrow!
