Winnie & Walter - Premier Day 1

Hi folks! We have another release for Winnie & Walter to share with you this week! 
Winnie & Walter, LLC

This first card uses the newest set in the In Bloom series ... In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez, as well as the heart from From the Bottom of My Heart. 

 There are a lot of pieces here, but it came together somewhat quickly since I lined up the stamps with the attached dies and then cut them all out at once. I place the die, cutting side down, on the cardstock and then center each stamp on top of each die. Then close the misti lid and press onto the stamps so they all remain in position. After stamping, you just line up the attached dies on top of the stamped images, tape it down, and then die cut as normal. This was a tip I learned from one of Jennifer Mcguire's videos. Total lifesaver! Otherwise all those tiny dies can be intimidating and then I don't tend to use them. 

 But once they are all cut, I have plenty for my current and even future projects. I ended up making two extra sets before I peeled off the stamps from my misti. Might as well, since they are already set up!

 I inked all the stamps, including the Happy sentiment, in green instead of black to give the card a lighter, more colorful look. Also, when adhering the floral pieces to the card base I just put adhesive on one end so the other is loose. I like the way that makes for a little more 3D bouquet. Then I added a gold thread bow for some sparkle. 

This card is one of my favorites from the release! I like how all the elements came together to carry the sentiment throughout the card.

The strawberry comes with a separate stamp for the seeds. Which reminds me of a quick story I just told this week of my mom when she first started cooking after getting married. She was making a salad that called for strawberries. A lot of strawberries. And it was taking forever. So long that she was worried that they may be late to the party they were supposed to bring the salad to. She just couldn't understand why people would even make this salad, since REMOVING ALL THE SEEDS from the strawberries was taking so long. Hahaha ... ugh, could you imagine how long that must have taken my mom to pick all those tiny seed off the outside of the strawberries? And I wonder what the party guests thought when they saw a "naked" strawberry? Anyway, my whole point in sharing this photo was to show you the gold embossed seeds. Love that they are slightly raised, just like in real life, due to the embossing.

 The berry and stamped sentiment are from In Bloom: Carolina's Florals. The birthday die is a new In a Word cutaway, and the fun dots are from Mini Scenery: Spotty. The adorable kitty is from another new set that will be featured later this week. You'll love it!
