Winnie & Walter Parentville Extras + The Big, the Bold and Extras

Hi Folks! We've got two Winnie & Walter "extras" stamp sets to share today. The first one is the Parentville Extras with lots of alternate names for "Mom" and "Dad", including this elegantly scripted "Mother". It makes me happy how the "love you" fits perfectly in the scribbled rectangle from yesterday's Rectangled and Triangled set. The adorable wooden hearts are also part of the set. Fuzzy twine is from American Crafts.

  Here's one for "Pop" ... I can't believe there is a stamp for "Pop"!! My husband will be getting this one, as that's what we call him.

 The secondary sentiments are quite useful for this and other cards to enhance the main sentiment. I like having the 5 stars to break up the text. Finally, the blue triangle borders are from yesterday's Rectangled and Triangled set


These two-step flowers are part of The Big, the Bold and Extras. A little masking is all it takes to get a pleasing bunch of flowers. I ended up using watercolors to color the flowers, but you could certainly use the solid stamp as well. The gaps are filled in with black marker. 

  Being impatient, I used the embossing gun to dry the watercolors, and decided to use the curled panel as-is. It's strange to say, but I kinda like it that way, like it's been posted to a bulletin board for a long time. I had one extra floral panel so I made another card instead of tossing it in the scrap pile.

I'm thinking I like this one a little better. I also had the burlap out from one of yesterday's cards, so this card is really right from my desktop. The large safety pin gave me a little trouble since it wouldn't lay flat, so I used some glossy accents to hold it to the panel.

  1. I was scrolling through the cards on WInnie & Walter and was taken by a card with beautifully colored flowers and a smidge of burlap. Wow, I said to myself. And then I looked and saw it was your card. I should have known. I'm always impressed by what you do.

  9. What an incredible bonanza of stamped goodness on this post. I especially love those roses with the burlap. I think it's the contrast between the soft feminine and the burlap masculine.
