Winnie & Walter Premiere Day No. 3

Hi Folks! So far we've had big words, stencils and tags revealed in the Winne & Walter release, and now it's time to ooh and ahh over two sets of floral stamps and coordinating dies. I'm happy to say they were designed by our very own team member Lydia Evans! So proud of her : ) Here I've used the layered poinsettia and coordinating cutaway as an accent to the sentiment, which I appreciate is Christmas-y, but not expected or used often. Plus I'm nutty about the font!       

I couldn't decide who would make more of a clatter ... the polar bear whizzing down the ski slopes, almost running into a tree, or the penguin kicking her heels up to her favorite tune. So I made both! I put the penguin directly over the word "clatter" to reinforce the message. And tomorrow we just might get to see more of their friends!

The corresponding cutaways are available for all the tiny pieces of the poinsettia so it's nice to have an additional layer for the tiny flowers in the middle. The poinsettia's are covered with lots of clear, chunky glitter. I think the fake variety often comes that way.

Here's a better look at the glitter.

For the backgrounds I cut some hills out of copy paper, blended some distress inks over the hills, and flicked some water on the inked card base. I like how the white spots make it look like they could be in a snow storm, with the large spots/flakes being really close to your face.

For as many bits and pieces I used of the In Bloom: Debra's Poinsettia with Lydia Evans set to make this wreath, there were just as many that I didn't use. You get quite the variety, that's for sure.

There are several different colors of green here, and again, lots of different plant materials.

The background is made by sponging ink through the wonderful Ticking Stripe Creative Screening laid on an angle, and then stopping just before the wreath. This keeps the card one layer. And really, I think this is about the only way to get a pattern on the background, without having to fussy cut around the wreath.
