Winnie and Walter En Masse

 Hello Crafters! 

In my last post I said you were going to see mad crazy amounts of Winnie and Walter and then I posted nothing for two days. Oops. 
My dear sweet son decided he didn't actually care if I got my cards posted. Can you believe that?! The nerve of that kid to want to be mothered. What am I, his mother?! . . ..oh damn, I guess I am. So  yeah, no cards.
  Plus I did a ride along with my officers since my last day is Monday (sob) I wanted to get one in before I leave. That's a story for another day. I promise :)

Okay normally I hate posting multiple cards in one post. I think it's super time consuming to view. I don't get to really appreciate every card because I'm too busy just trying to get though all the details. However, Winnie and Walter is holding so many challenges I wanted to play along with AND they all close tonight. Hence, Winnie and Walter En Masse. :) I promise I'll try to get through quickly!!

Loved these colors. These read as an elegant card to me.

I stamped the flowers from The Big, The Bold, and The Extras in a light ink and did some no line coloring with my copics. Added some highlights with white gel pen. I trimmed them out. The banner was stamped in Tsukineko Gold Brilliance ink and shaded with more copics. The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold, and The Happy. It was stamped in black and curved to match the banner. To bring in more black I stamped the leaves outline in it then stamped the solid image over top in the same gold ink. I trimmed out the banner and added it with dimensional adhesive. Done!

Basically use a stamp in a way the designer didn't intend.

I decided to use the banner from  The Big, The Bold, and The Extras to create a quiver. 

I just turned it. I did draw a side to the quiver before I trimmed it out.

I stamped the calender detail stamp on top for the black border with the heart. I drew some stitched lines on the side to tie it into the front. The arrows from The Write Stuff: Love Story were stamped flat to the card base. I stamped the heart a second time to trim them out. All coloring was copics. The hearts and quiver were added with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is also from Love Story. I stamped it in Raspberry Jam shadow ink from Hero arts to match the quiver. Trimmed it into a banner and added it on top. I stickled those hearts to death :) 

Third (and last. I'm so sorry!) 

You know if there is a sketch I can't resist!

First I flipped it upside down. I stamped the heart from The Write Stuff: Love Story as my large circle. It's in Splash Chalk ink by Hero Arts. I then stamped my flowers and leaves in black. Color with more copics. Draw stems and adhere flowers. I stamped the hello from The Big, The Bold, and The Happy for a sentiment. Finished it off with some black sequins and white gel pen details.

Ahhh. Done. 
Thanks for hanging in there. It's long I know!

Enjoy your Saturday.
Thanks for visiting!



  1. Sigh...guess your absence was for a good reason. (hee, hee) Each card is fabulous in its own way. I really enjoy your use of color. Bold and fun. I also like when you use the white dots. It's not something I am used to seeing, but it is very striking. Clever idea to make the quiver! Have a terrific weekend!
