Winnie & Walter - A Set of Noel Cards!

Hello everyone,
 I have a set two Christmas cards to share with your using Winnie & Walter's new release stamp set and cutaways. I am also at Winnie & Walter Blog today. I have used Framed with Evelin T Designs stamp set, Typecast: Cary stamp set, Framed with Evelin T Design Cutaway and In a Word: Noel Cutaway.


Both of my cards are similar yet different. They are similar in layout, the elements used but different in colours and the placement of the elements. Here is my first card.

Red NOEL card

I used the alphabets and numbers from Typecast: Cary stamp set and stamped the sentiment saying 25th Merry Christmas using light grey ink on the card front at an angle. I did draw lines to keep the spacing even. I erased the pencil lines after stamping the images. Since the background is neutral, I wanted my focal elements to pop out of the neutral background.

For the focal point I gold heat embossed the frame from Framed with Evelin T Design stamp set and die cut the frame out using the coordinating cutaway. I also stamped the leaves and berries from the stamp set, copic coloured and die cut using the coordinating cutaway. Then I also die cut In a Word: Noel cutaway using white cardstock, sponged Candied Apple distress ink in ombre and added details using white gelly roll pen. I adhered the frame offset on the lower right of the card front using foam adhesives, the NOEL flush on the frame and foam on the edges to the cardstock. Then adhered the leaves and berries to frame the sentiment. Finally embellished with rose gold sequins.

Now for the second card, I did the background similar to the first one using Typecast: Cary stamp set. But I used red ink and a variety of christmas sentiment to create the background.

Green NOEL card

I again drew pencil lines diagonally to get the spacing right and once stamped the background, I erased the pencil lines.  For the focal point, I used another frame from the Framed Evelin T Design which I gold heat embossed. Similar to the first card, I also stamped, copic coloured and die cut the leaves and berries from the stamp set using coordinating cutaway. The sentiment Noel is die cut using white cardstock, sponged Mowed Lawn distress inks in ombre and added details using white gelly roll pen.

On this card, I clustered the elements on the top centre of the card front. The frame using the foam adhesives, the sentiment NOEL flush glued on the frame and foam on the hanging edges and the leaves falling from the frame with the berries in the centre. I used sparkly clear and gold sequins to embellished the card.

You can change colours while the alphabets are arranged on MISTI to stamp a few card fronts. And also emboss a few more frames and elements to mass produce the design. Just vary the placement of the focal cluster and you get a variety of Christmas card.

I absolutely love the Typecast: Cary stamp set. Bold alphabets and numbers. It is a must have stamp set in my collection. The Framed stamp set is gorgeous to add layers and love the hand drawn images. Of course, the In a Word cutaways are fabulous. Big, bold and great focal point word dies. This release by Winnie & Walter is fabulous.

Hope you are inspired by my cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Its the release day!

Oh Hello everyone, Today is the day you have been waiting for. Its the release day of Taylored Expressions December releases. Woohoo! All the new goodies you have been eyeing for past three day are now available for purchase. So Happy shopping!

I am showcasing three new products today. The first combines Brushed Heart background stamp with Stroke Of Genius Valentine.

I used the Brushed Heart background stamp as tone on tone for the background with Stroke of Genius Valentine as the focal point.


I stamped the background of the Sugar Cube card front with the Brushed Heart background stamp using Versamark. Then I dusted Perfect Pearl iridescent powder on the stamped background and wiped the excess off with a swiffer cloth. LOVE the subtle iridescent shimmer. Perfect texture for the background.

You're so sweet

For the focal point, I stamped the brushed heart from Stroke of Genius Valentine stamp set over a strip of white cardstock using rainbow of TE dye inks. I used Cherry Pop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Granny Smith, Cookie Monster, Jelly Donut and Plum Punch. I over lapped the images when stamping. I adhered a strip of gold glitter cardstock on both edges of this panel and adhered on the card front. Sentiment is a combination of Sweet Script die and How Sweet It Is stamp set. I have stacked and glued three of Sweet Script die cut with black glitter die cut on the top. Finally embellished with sequins.

Second card just uses the Stroke of Genius Valentine stamp set. Since I love the rainbow stamping, I used another of the brush heart image from the stamp set to do exactly the same.

On this card, I used various pigment inks to stamp rainbow of colours. Love this brushed heart image on the stamp set. It has a lots of solid portion on the stamp so it can ink up a lot of colour and stamp.

Sentiment is a combination of Loved Script die cuts, stacked and glued with black glitter on the top for added interest and dimension. And the smaller sentiment from How Sweet It Is stamp set white heat embossed on Oreo strip of cardstock. Embellished with sequins and Nuvo crystal drops. All the supplies used to make this card is listed below.

The next product I am showcasing is the Conversation Hearts Embossing folder. I made a set of cards using this embossing folder and All You Need Is Love stamp set.

I again used TE inks to make this set of cards. I added inks to the embossing folder and ran a Sugar Cube panel through the embossing folder. This gives gorgeous colours to the background of the panel and the words on the hearts. The hearts are raised from the background to add texture. Just beautiful.

Once the inks dry, they even out. I took photos before the ink dry. The background still looks gorgeous. I have used Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster, Granny Smith, Mint Julep and Lollipop. Just make sure you wash off the embossing folder after every colour. Otherwise the previous colour will contaminate the newer one. I ran the embossing folder under my tap with a light rub using a sponge.
The sentiment is from All You Need Is Love stamp set white heat embossed on a stitched rectangle die cut using Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and Oreo cardstock. Here are the individual cards.
