Winnie & Walter Release Day (3 of 4)

Hi folks! We're only half way through this massive Winnie & Walter release and there is still so much to show you! This next set is called Our Town and it's full of houses, fences, trees, lamp posts, etc. Anything you'd need to make a town of your own. For this card I stamped all three houses in different colors and masked as I worked my way up the card. The sentiment is another tiny one I'm in love with from Comfort + Joy. It goes so well with the huge neighborhood on the card ... kind of like the card is from everyone who lives in each of the houses.

Winnie & Walter, LLC

After I put the w&w watermark on the photo I realized that I created the Winnie & Walter town ... the colors are almost exactly the same as the w&w circles!

For this house I swiped the stamp across a juicy distress ink pad and then stamped it. Love the textured horizontal lines that resulted! I can hardly stand how cute those little stars are. To add to my chilly winter scene, I cut a few layers of hills. This was a perfect place to add my sentiment (from Catherine Pooler's Holiday Stamp of Approval Box.)

Although I made a winter scene here, all the accessories that come in this Our Town set will let you create a scene for all seasons. What a great set of cards that would be!

This last card features a wreath cut with the In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaway. Really love the open leaves on this wreath. They work well for letting layers show through, especially this gold foil layer on the bottom. The top layer is colored with a few different Copic markers to make a blended Fall wreath. The In a Word Thanks sentiment is bent slightly in a curve to make it fit better on the card (it take up more of the space inside the wreath, as well as doesn't extend over the card edge as much.

For the bow I used the same Copic markers that I used on the wreath to alter my seam binding tape. Perfectly matched!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Hey, genius girl!! Love your cards so much! And I had to smile when I saw the first one - I started a card that looked so much like this one but just couldn't finish it to look as fab as yours!

  2. These are ALL super sweet, Kelly!! Love!

  3. Two things: you know I cannot resist a great 'neighborhood' so I'm moving in =] and where did you find that fab roll of seam binding? Gorgeousness abounds, Kelly!

    1. Thanks Michele! Would you believe I found that roll of seam binding at an estate sale in our area?! ONE HUNDRED yards for only 50 cents!! One of my best finds. I also have a roll in this weird olive color, and fuchsia.

      I think I have your address, but send it to me anyway and I'll share some with you : )

  4. Gorgeous - I love how you managed to get two completely different-feeling cards with that same house set. And that wreath is gorgeous!

  5. Oh my gosh so many beautiful and different cards! Love all the soft bright colors! The wreath is gorgeous!

  6. Seriously cool cards! Really love the quirky one with the bent sentiment ( appeals to my slightly odd side!) and love the bright houses one. I keep looking at everyone's projects thinking 'now why didn't I think of that idea!!' X

  7. Oh, these are fantastic, Kelly! I especially love the first one!

  8. Wonderful cards as always, Kelly! I love the wreath, and I'm smitten with that W&W neighborhood!
    P.S. Finding that seam binding for 50cents is a STEAL! It's normally on sale for 20x that price.

  9. Oh, I just love coming here and seeing all of your creativity!! Those colorful houses are adorable, that would be a charming little neighborhood to live in!! And your layered wreath is very pretty!

  10. Wonderful cards! Fantastic masking on the first one and I really love the scene on the second and what a great design on the third, you always do such a great job!

  11. Love these!! Those little houses all over your first card really made my whole face smile! Fantastic design and love those colors! And such a sweet house out in the woods card too. The stars above it were a great choice. And that wreath with it's matchy-matchy ribbon. Almost fell off my chair when I read/saw that you colored it. You are a genius girl. True story. Bev

  12. Gorgeous work! I am loving the colorful houses and the design is spot on (each one of them)! I am recently obsessed with houses stamp and dies ( a trip to Norway will do that to you)....looks like I will have to make an order of the house set! Hope you are doing well, Kelly!

  13. These are all beautiful, love the card with the rainbow of houses!

  14. Your cards are all beautiful! Gorgeous stamping and love those new stamps and dies! Sorry I haven't been here lately, something was funny with my blog feed. Hopefully it's fixed now.

  15. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS cards Kelly!!!
    LOVE the scenes you have created in the 1st two cards!!!
    ADORE your thanks card, the layered wreath, curved, shaded thanks and bow look DELIGHTFUL together, LOVE IT ALL and hope it is OK to CASE it as soon as I can add these CRAFTY MUST-HAVES to my stash :)
    THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing!!!

  16. Love your three cards, my favorite is the first one! I'd love to live in such a colorful neighborhood! And be kind enough to include all of my neighbors in the greetings! I love that you used W & W colors too! TFS

  17. Love what you have done with the new Our Town set! Your rainbow village is stunning! So are your other the single cottage in the hills and the wreath card!
    Great estate find on the seam binding!

  18. I love that colorful W&W village, Kelly, but the single little blue cabin is wonderful as well. And the wreath is gorgeous. I donated all my seam binding to the church when we made pillowcase dresses for Haiti. I never thought I'd want it for my cardmaking.


I absolutely love reading comments. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave one! - Kelly
