Winnie & Walter Release Day (1 of 4)

Hi folks! I've been anxiously waiting for this Winnie & Walter release for quite some time, and am relieved that it's finally here. There are so many different stamp sets, cutaways (dies) and creative screenings (stencils) that it's difficult to keep track of them all! Winnie & Walter have really outdone themselves this time. Wait until you see the goodies! We've got four days that are utterly packed.

 This first card uses just one of the sketchy blooms from In Bloom: Elsa's Flora. I kept this poinsettia white (except for the red Pretty Pink Posh sequins in the middle) and added color to the rest of the card with patterned paper. The sentiment is from a set being debuted tomorrow that is filled with wonderfully tiny sentiments.

For this second card I used the same white poinsettias, with gold sequin centers, and a sentiment from a set being debuted later in the week. The gold sprigs are also from a cutaway that's being showcased on a future day. I know, I know, didn't I tell you there was so much goodness coming?!?

Here are the two cards together. Same basic formula, with two patterned papers being divided a third of the way up with fussy cut white poinsettia(s). A formula like this is good if you're one of those people who is crazy enough to make a unique holiday card for everyone on their list. Not me; I am a proud mass-producer!

This release also has some of the great large word cutaways that Winne & Walter is known for. The In a Word: Joy cutaway is a great decoration to add to presents. The "o" in the middle of the word is an oh-so-convenient way to attach it ... just run your ribbon through the middle!


How about the quickest little card/tag ever? Just place the metal die slightly above your folded paper and you instantly have a unique greeting that you can write inside. I added a star and a disc onto gold thread and hung it from the bottom of the "o". I love the way it dangles!
