Happy Birthday with Winnie and Walter

This is my last entry for the birthday celebrations at the Winnie and Walter blog. And it's not even a Christmas card (gasp) but a set of quick and easy birthday cards using W&W's Mini Scenery: Round and Round.

Creating my panels was dead easy thanks to the MISTI. I started by stamping the image in two opposite corners of each panel, rotating the panel after each stamping. I used 4 colours of Cathering Pooler ink (Black Jack, Stone Blue, Rose Petals and Sauna). Next I repositioned my stamp and stamped the remaining two corners of each panel. After that I stamped the sentiment (Sugar Rush, Winnie and Walter) in black and then mounted all panels onto my white card bases.

The inspiration for my cards came from the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch

The more the merrier with Winnie and Walter

Hello again! I'm back with my third Merry card. I wasn't sure if I could finish it tonight but I managed.

On this card, I used the left over white die cuts from the previous 2 cards plus the one that I cut out of my green brushos panel before inlaying the white letters. I'm now left with one more Grand Merry die cut, because I started adhering the green version one layer too early, so that it has 2 layers instead of the 3 I had intended. To dress up my die cuts, I addded some Versamark ink to the top edge of my green letters and to a sort of cascading line over the white letters, added my brand-new WOW! embossing glitter (Under the sea) and used a hot heat tool to heat set it. The stamped sentiment is from the Comfort + Joy set by Winnie and Walter.

Below is a picture of all three cards that I created using the Grand Merry dies as my starting point. Love how one design led to another and I also love how they turned out differently.

More merriness with Winnie and Walter

I have another Merry Winnie and Walter card to share, which was made using snippets.

I needed a few more white Merrry die cuts (for a card that is not quite finished) and when I went to die cut them from a snippet of white cardstock I thought I might just as well try to die cut them neatly so that I could use my panel on yet another card. I adhered it to a panel that was the result from smooshing my acrylic block after doing some watercolouring using CP inks. The background panel was created from a snippet of shimmery cardstock and the stamped sentiment strip (W&W, Sending you with Evelyn T Designs) was another snippet (after converting A4 cardstock to 4 panels for US A2-sized cards)
