Winnie & Walter August Rerun!

  • Hello and welcome to Winnie & Walter August Rerun feature!

This month’s rerun stamp set is The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect. This is an oldie but a goodie. Very trendy too.

This set will be on sale this month at Winnie & Walter store. There is plenty of inspirations by designers on Winnie & Walter Blog and there is also a challenge that runs for this month. Of course with the challenge there are prizes as well. Check out Winnie & Walter Blog for more details.

Here is my inspiration using The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect stamp set.

 I die cut a white panel using Essentials: Katharine’s Cutaway largest rectangle die. Then sponged distress inks in Cracked Pistachio and Spun Sugar. Love these two colours together. Soft and pretty. Then I spattered gold spray using Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine spray. This adds texture to the background.  Once dry, I stamped a few smaller images from the The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect using Cracked Pistachio and Spun Sugar distress inks. I did tone on tone stamping to add interest to the background. I left the panel aside to work on my focal image.

After much deliberation with gold heat embossed on black camera image or white heat embossed on black camera, I decided on white heat embossed camera on black background as my focal point. I adhered this on the centre of the sponged background panel using foam adhesives. Using few more of the words stamps from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect  stamp set, I stamped them around the focal image as well as on the edges of the background panel.

For the main sentiment, I used In a Word: Cheers cutaway to die cut thrice out of black cardstock and once out of gold glitter cardstock. I stacked glued all the them with the gold die cut on the top. I adhered this sentiment stack on top of the camera in the centre of the background panel. The finished panel is adhered on a white card base and embellished with gold sequins.

Have a Great Summer Break!

Hey everyone,

I have another Simon Says Stamp card using the Friendly Frolic release products to share with your today. When you see this post, I am on a flight to India. A week in my home town to attend my Dad’s first anniversary and also bringing my mother with me to Australia. Cannot believe it has already been a year since my dad passed away. My mum will be staying with me for a few months. So looking forward to having her after very very long time. I will be learning lots of traditional south Indian recipes. Cannot wait 🙂  Anyway, next week all my posts are scheduled posts. I will be back to my routine from week after.

Coming back to today’s card, I cannot get enough of the Leafy Frame die release recently. One of my favourite in the release. I made another summer card using this die combining with some of the older Simon Says Stamp stamp sets and dies. But first here is the card.

I started with sponging two white panels. I trimmed two Neenah Solar White 80lbs panels. On one panel, I sponged Spun Sugar and Worn Liptstick distress inks and on the other I sponged Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks. I first sponged the lighter shade of both the colours on each of the panel first, then came in with the darker shade of each of the colour on the edges of the panels. I did take the darker shade a bit towards the centre not too much. There was a lot of elbow grease to get the blending smooth and even. I love the green and pink colours together. They make such beautiful combination. For summer, they are a great colours. The current colour trend takes this combination to another level by muting the colours. It is dusty or blush pink with sage green. I really want to try the combination in one of my future card.

The sentiment is from School Bus Messages stamp set. I simply stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink on the pink sponged panel right in the centre. I then die cut the green sponged panel using the Leafy Frame die and added foam adhesive on the back of the die cut and adhered on top of the pink sponged panel.

Then I stamped, coloured and die cut the smaller images from Simon’s Surf’s Up stamp set from Good Vibes collection. I clustered them and adhered in three spots. One or two of the elements in the cluster is glued down and other element is adhered using foam adhesive. Finally I added a few Nuvo white crystal drops to fill in some empty spaces.

I love how bright and summery this card turned out. One of my favourites I think. I have listed all my supplies used to make this card is listed below.


Have a wonderful weekend! I will see you back here on Monday!

It is all here!

Yes! Its the release day at Taylored Expressions today. All the sneak peek products I have sharing with you for past three days are now available at Taylored Expressions store. Yay! Happy Dance! As always I have two more projects to share with you. The first one features the new Mosaic Leaves Stencil. I love this stencil for its beautiful large leaves. Perfect for the fall themed card.

I sponged Lime Zest and Sweet Basil TE dye inks on Mosaic Leaves stencil on Sugar Cube cardstock panel. Then added Nuvo Moonstone embossing paste over it to add texture and glitter to the panel. I wanted to keep this beautiful background, so I just wanted add a sentiment and finish the card. So I used the new Blessed Script Backer die to die cut a heavy weight vellum and added Blessed die cut using back glitter cardstock on top of the backer die cut. The secondary sentiment is from So Very Blessed stamp set, which I stamped using Oreo hybrid ink and die cut using the second die from Flag Ended Stacklets. To tie in the black colours, I added a few black sequins and topped it up with silver stickles.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.


My second project for today showcases Caps Lock BOO die!

Here I used the new Spider Web stencil on the background with distress inks. The colours I used are Wilted Violet, Jelly Donut, Seedless Preserve and Black Soot on the edges. I then die cut the centre of this panel using the Caps Lock BOO. I adhered the negative panel on Plum Punch card base. Then I also die cut three more Caps Lock BOO using Plum Punch cardstock. I stacked glued them with the Spider Web BOO on top of the stack. I inlaid this stack die cut back in its place back on the card front to make an eclipse card. I really loved making eclipse card this release.

To add accessories, I stamped a few spiders from Cutting Edge Ghost stamp set, copic coloured them and die cut using the coordinating dies. Then I randomly adhered them all over the card fron using foam adhesives. To fill in the rest of the space, I added a set of googly eyes. Simple and quick halloween card to make 🙂
