w&w Share the Love: Bling Set Challenge





Hi folks! We're still sharing the love between Winnie & Walter and Simon Says Stamp, and today's challenge is to use a SSS set with a specific w&w set ... Scenery: Big Bang, Bling. The squares, circles, asterisks, and sequins from the Bling set are great to use as a support to your sentiment. In this case, I really needed something to fill up the empty space between the bottom of the sentiment and the bottom of the Popsicle stick. This helps to make the group read as one square element. 



It was fun to stamp the sentiment right on the patterned paper background, and since the sentiment is so large and dense, I think it can handle it. The gold looks so luxurious with this font's thick letters.

Stay tuned for another challenge tomorrow, and then I'll be back on Friday with the final challenge. Hope you have some time to play along on the blog, or just check out the inspiration from Julie, Shay and my other super-talented teammates!

Thanks for looking!

w&w Share the Love Week: 10 Minute Challenge

 



Hi folks!  Not sure if you've heard, but Winnie & Walter is pairing up with Simon Says Stamp every day this week with a fun, new challenge. One winner from each day will get a gift certificate to either Winnie & Walter or Simon Says Stamp!! Yesterday was a rainbow theme, and today is a 10 minute challenge.

Simon Says Stamp graciously provided the w&w team with a different stamp set for this week's challenge, and the one I received is Ice Cream Dream (adorable!!):


I used the small popsicle and only inked the outside portion, but the bottom inside portion also got inked by mistake. Since it was a 10 minute challenge, I had to move on!! It ended up working OK when I added the smiley face ... they are now chins! Not sure if you noticed, but the last popsicle is winking. Hahaha. The aqua stripes on the side are half of a Winnie & Walter Scenery: V for cheVron stamp. I've also used the baker's twine that Winnie & Walter so kindly use to package their stamp sets (I never throw anything out!) I finished with a few seconds to spare, but after taking a photograph of the tag I thought it was still missing something so I added my go-to clear sequins. That got me right to 10 minutes.

Hope you have some time to play along on the blog, or just check out the inspiration from Julie, Shay and my other super-talented teammates!

Thanks for looking!
