Winnie & Walter Bubble Talk + The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect

Hi Folks! Two more Winnie & Walter sets for today (I know, can you even stand it?!) Bubble Talk includes two-step word balloons. I've just used the solid word balloon here a bunch of times in "boy" colors and then embossed the sentiment in white. I thought about white embossing an outline around the two word balloons with the sentiment, but at the last minute I chickened out. There's too much stamping on this card to risk it! I wanted the two words to be close together, but after they were embossed they looked unbalanced in their balloons. So I filled the space on the left and right with some sequin stamps from a set you'll see tomorrow.

And, wait until you see the sentiments on this set. It contains "HEY" and "DUDE". Seriously, I can't wait to send these cards out!

 This card uses three of the sets ... the bubble talk set like the last card (that font!!), a scenery filler for the background that you'll see tomorrow, and the camera from Picture Perfect. The camera totally begs to be paper-pieced, and let me tell you it looks awesome that way. I didn't get a chance to put it on a card though. However, it looks awesome just stamped in Staz-on on a linen metallic paper (American Crafts).

The camera pops out quite a bit (3/4") to really be obnoxious, going along with all the photos that are being taken of the recipient (snap, snap, snap, snap, snap ...)

But don't worry, it folds flat for mailing. I took a strip of 110 pound paper, folded it into a rectangle, and attached that to the camera and card. You can see part of the folded rectangle to the left of the camera here.

As a Mom who has 110,896 photos in her Photoshop catalog, the sentiment on this card sums up many of my days. Although, I've definitely dropped the "smile" introduction and just get down to business snapping photos. A "HEY" will come out if the boys aren't cooperating. And what do you know, there's a "hey" sentiment in the Bubble Talk set. I could have totally customized this card! 

 Like the other sets this week, we've got tons more inspiration over at the winner of our Play Date #1 Challenge, Shirley-Bee, our guest designer Chaitali Narla from Iron Craft, Julie and Shay themselves on the Winnie & Walter blog, and the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent:
