Winne & Walter: Premiere Day #4

ice, ice, BABY!

Seriously, that sentiment alone is worth getting this small-sized penguin set! Totally cracks me up, especially paired with their sweet expression. For the banner (held with a toothpick by the head penguin) I chose a yellow-orange since that's the penguin's beak color. Yellow-orange stripe paper is lined inside the card.

The background was a mistake, actually. I originally had this for yesterday's card with Santa on the rooftop. White glimmer mist is sprayed through the circles creative screening, but I wanted it a little darker so I sprayed again. As you can see, I did a lousy job lining up the stencil. No where close! But after looking at it awhile I thought it would make a great snow storm background, like when the snow is coming down so hard it's just streaking by.

The vellum ice cubes are cut free-hand to look more natural, and overlapped slightly for effect.

Even as I'm writing this I'm cracking up at "ice, ice, baby."

Thanksgiving is not overlooked in this release ... here's a small Stampets: Turkey set. Even if you're not having a large, fancy meal I thought these name cards would be fun to set out. They take minutes to make since they are so small. Each leaf (I lined up 4 at a time on a block) is one or two swipes with a watercolor brush.

I stamped the hat across an imaginary fold line, then figured out where the middle is and scored on either side of the hat. I used an exacto to cut the portion of the hat above the fold line. This way it pops right up when you fold the name card. You can see the back of one above.

A great way to add a little color to your table!

So, what do you think ... pretty crazy release, right?! I really enjoyed creating with these stamps, stencils and dies. I commented to our team that I'm dying to get back in the craft room after seeing everyone else's projects each day. Our guest stars were awesome too ... did you see Jingle's card yesterday where she used the manger for the "x" in "X-mas"?! Totally rocked it! If you'd like, check out the amazing projects from our guest stars, Julie and Shay on the Winnie & Walter blog. As always, there's a ton more inspiration on the personal blogs of our Talent:

Joni Andaya | Lea Lawson | Mayuri | Vanessa Menhorn | Gayatri Murali | Heather Pulvirenti | Laura Sterckx

All stamps, stencils and dies go on sale at Winnie & Walter today at 8 pm CST.

After trick-or-treating is done, you can get some treats for yourself : )
