w&w February Release: Day 1

Hi folks! Welcome to the beginning of a four-day belated birthday release for Winnie & Walter! Lots of cute stamps, scripty fonts (of course), fun cutaways, and even a special sequin mix are all part of the party.

The In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers stamp set has a ton of different choices to mix and match. The nice thing about these stamps is that, aside from a sentiment, you really don't need anything else to make a beautiful card. This mixed font sentiment is from a set you'll see tomorrow.

I don't consider myself to be a "pretty" card-maker, so I was particularly happy with how easy these stamps were to create something pretty. As silly as it seems, I felt particularly accomplished after making this card, just because it's different than my normal style : )

This release also has a creative screening (stencil) called Pattern of the Rings. It would be great to use just a portion of the screening, but here I blended ink over the entire card base to see the full effect (not sure if you noticed, but the first card had edges that were inked though the screening).

The In a Word: Kisses Cutaway is very glam in glitter paper, and goes so well with the tiny words from an older set, The Big, the Bold and Friends. The heart behind "kisses" will be featured in the coming days, as well as the stamp set with this adorable little love note envelope stamp. It was so cute, I ended up putting it on a piece of fun foam so it stood out more. Super!

The sequins were a surprise gift from the Winnie & Walter ladies to the design team recently. Bags and bags of sequins from Little Things from Lucy's Cafe. I was SO excited! And very thankful to work with such sweet ladies : ) I think every card I've made since then has had these lovelies attached to them. The sequins from this particular card are from the Champagne Sparkly Shaker Selection. I love the different sizes and shapes that come in each package.
