Winnie & Walter October Release - Day 3

Hi blog friends!  Wow...it's been a busy week on my blog! If you are looking for my Lil' Inker Designs release day 2, CLICK HERE or just scroll through this post to the next one.

Welcome to day 3 of the Winnie & Walter October release!!  Here is what we are showcasing today!
  • Happy Christmas
  • The Big, The Bold and The Merry
  • Cutaways

 Why, yes....you've read that right!  Winnie & Walter is getting into the business of dies!  I'm sure you've seen peeks of them throughout the week so far, & they are amazing!  We are releasing 4 sets that match some of The Big, The Bold stamps.  You can enter for your chance to win these three items on today's Winnie & Walter blog post!

I've used all three items on my card today, and I used the matching Cutaways from The Big, The Bold and The Merry.  I made a fun shaker card, and once again I way overfilled the shaker part.  Lol!  I can't seem to stop pouring sequins when I make these!!
You are going to just love the Cutaways...I've used them on a few different cards so far, and they are just plain amazing!  And the wreath from the Happy Christmas stamp set is one of my FAVES!  It would look pretty awesome at Easter as well....{must stash this in my brain to remember in about 4-5 months.  Lol!}




Be sure to check out what the rest of the Winnie & Walter Talent created with our featured products, as I am sure it is going to be a treat!  I'm going to make myself a latte & do the same!


I will be back tomorrow, sharing my final day of projects with our new products!  Have an awesome Thursday!!

Until later,

P.S. I have started my Lea Lawson Creates Facebook page in order to separate my personal Facebook profile from my crafting.  This is a great way to follow my work on Facebook without having to personally be friends....I am paring my Facebook friends list down to just family & close friends in the next couple of months.  If you want to keep in touch with me on Facebook, I would love for you to like my page, and then turn on the notifications!!  (To do that just click on the drop-down menu in the same place you clicked the "Like" button first.)  I will link up my blog posts, post images of all my projects, ask fun crafty questions so we can get to know each other better, etc.  It is all part of wanting to be more intentional in all the avenues of my life, and I actually think this will help me get to know my crafting friends better. :)

Lil Inker Designs October Release - Day 2

Hey there, blog friends!  Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs October release!  We've got 4 new stamp sets, and 8 new dies for you this month.  You can check out all of the new items under the Latest Release section of the website!

Today I have two more cards to share with you.  I went with a pink & aqua theme this time around....which is the color of a large part of my Christmas decor.  That's probably why I reached for it!  {Side note: I am SO ready to decorate for Christmas....but I make myself wait until the day after Thanksgiving when everyone else is out shopping.}  This first card uses the friendship sentiment from the Cozy Winter Wishes stamp set.  I also stamped every single snowflake from the set on this card...check it out!
After doing all the stamping & letting it dry (they are mixed media inks, so they don't immediately set), I accented the snowflakes with beautiful jewels & flourishes.  What friend wouldn't love to get this in the mail...it would certainly warm the heart during these colder months....don't you agree? :)






My next card features dies only.  As much as I love stamping...scrapbooking product has always been my first love.  Using dies is a great way to incorporate my scrap product into my cards even more than I already do.  For this I made my own wood veneer card using this awesome wood paper from the My Mind's Eye "Necessities" collection.  Check it out!
I don't use my lace trim & ribbon as much as I once did, and I am reminded of how beautiful it looks every time I break it out now.  I need to use it more often...I just love the texture & coziness it adds!! I also couldn't wait to use the Baubled Christmas Tree die, and accent it with pretty jewels!!  I'm trying to decide if I should have added more to it, or not.  What do you think?  Just a quick note....the pink & aqua jewels aren't linked below.  They are from Doodlebug Design, but are older.  I stocked up on them a few years ago because they are my favorite!!  :)




Do you want a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs to put towards your purchase this month?  {Seriously...who wouldn't?!}  Then be sure to hop along to each of the designer's blogs & leave a comment.  The more blogs you visit & comment, the better your chances are at winning!!  Here is a link list in case you need the whole thing:

Winnie & Walter October Release - Day 2

HI blog friends!!  The next few days are pretty crazy on my blog here with two different releases going on.  If you are looking for my Lil' Inker Designs release day 1, CLICK HERE or just scroll through this post to the next one. 

Next up is release day 2 for Winnie & Walter.  Today we are featuring the following stamp sets:
  • Mini Scenery: Into The Woods
  • Scenery: Big Bang Flurries
  • Winter Woodland

You can win these stamps sets by following the commenting instructions on today's post at the Winnie & Walter blog!  For my card, I went really neutral with my card and kept it in the kraft & white zone, with a pop of gold.  The sentiment is from a stamp set that we will be sharing with you later this week!!  Here is my card!
To create my little scene, I stamped the Into the Woods scenery to a block of kraft cardstock using white pigment ink.  After letting the ink dry, I then stamped & heat embossed the flurries to the top of it using pearl embossing powder.  I love how subtle it looks!!  I stamped & heat embossed the stag on vellum using gold glitter embossing powder, then fussy cut it.  After that I just layered everything together to the card front.



Be sure to check out what the rest of the Winnie & Walter Talent created with our featured products, as I am sure it is going to be a treat!  I'm going to make myself a latte & do the same!

I will be back tomorrow, sharing more projects with our new products!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
