Winnie & Walter - Premier Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the newest Winnie & Walter release! Today I focused mainly on the two biggest sizes in the Big Balloons cutaway set.

Winnie & Walter, LLC

This card uses the second biggest balloon die of the four, and as you can see here, you also have two insert dies in case you want to create shaker cards. For these balloons I used the Zig Clean Color Brush Marker to color them ... what an easy coloring job. No lines to stay inside! The party die is an addition to the In a Word series. Because the "let's" is tiny next to the giant "p" I stamped a few arrows from Scenery: Stripes 2 (which is currently on sale).

Then to finish it off I tied some baker's twine to the ends of each balloon (so handy to have that little triangle on the end of the balloon to use) and then to several of the letters in the sentiment. Lots of color in this card!

The next card uses the largest balloon die to make a shaped card. I love shaped cards and make them any time I can! Since this shape doesn't lend itself to standing very well on its own I made my own cloud and attached it to the back of the card. Now when it's opened it has somewhere to stand. 

The sentiment uses the "birthday" In a Word Cutaway and then a cute sentiment about cake and ice cream from the newest Sentimental set (which, with 26 different birthday sayings, is a set that will probably never leave the top of my desk!!) 

But that's not all ...

The balloon is flying away despite the best efforts of several critters ... and the cake!! The card is meant to sit on a ledge and then have these cuties dangle over the edge in an interactive way.
These guys are from the Party On set which will be the focus of Friday's post.
When on display it makes for a large card, but since they are all just holding on to the string, it still is able to fit in a regular envelope. You just crumple up the string behind the balloon so when it's pulled out all the critters fall down. Fun!

I can tell these balloon dies are going to get a lot of use!
