Winnie & Walter October Release Day Two

Premiere of Mini Scenery: Into The Woods + 
Scenery: Big Bang Flurries + 
Winter Woodland

Hello there! 

Welcome back as we celebrate Winnie and Walter's October release with another day of awesomeness! Today we are previewing 3 more stamp sets! Hooray! I have to say that all of these are just as amazing as yesterday's sets (and tomorrow's are even better... if that is possible!) 

I often like to see if I can take a set and use it in a way other than it's obvious intended purpose. That is kind of what I did with my first 2 cards today.

First up is a card made with the new small set Mini Scenery: Into the Woods. I inked up my stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist before pressing it onto watercolor paper. After it was dry, I stamped the deer image from Winter Wonderland on top of it to give the impression of a silhouette. Since I have many cousins who are outdoorsmen, I thought it would be fun to use the sentiment from Winter Woodland and turn this into a birthday card. You can never have enough masculine birthday cards, right?

My second card for today focuses on the new Big Bang Flurries set. There are four different shapes in this set and I love them all, but this fun flower looking shape got me to thinking that maybe I could turn it into a sort of trendy "tween" card. I have a niece that is 12 now, and I had her in mind when I created this card. I think she will like it. This sentiment is also from the Winter Woodland set.

And now here we are, with a Christmas card, to celebrate Winter Woodland. This is a great set with so many fun images and sentiments. I can't wait to pull it out again and play with it some more. I really love this beautiful, enormous tree! I just stamped in in Versamark and heat embossed it with Zing silver embossing powder. It is so gorgeous! Again, the sentiment is from the Winter Woodland set. It is really a fun and versatile set... great for Christmas, winter, or those often difficult masculine cards! 

I hope you have enjoyed a peek at these new sets! There is more goodness tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!
