Winnie & Walter Black Friday Stamp Set

Hi! I’m delighted to be here showing an exciting Black Friday deal from Winnie and Walter…

In Bloom: Julie’s Roses stamp set  is free with a purchase (while supplies last) when you spend $35 after discounts are applied and prior to any shipping & handing and taxes being applied from 12:00 a.m. on Friday, November 25, 2016 until 11:59 p.m. Monday, November 28, 2016. 

Isn’t the set gorgeous. I’ve gone Christmassy with it

I’ve added some of the new release products to it including the In A Word:Noel Cutaway and Essentials Carly Cutaway

I’ve cut the Noel from some glitter paper and then coloured Julie’s Roses using copics. Arranging them around the frame is easy and then adding a few sequins and twine.

There is a slight issue with balance that I had to rectify and add weight to the back left but I’m going to add this to make a special card (serves me right for going with the flow and not planning ahead! Ha!)

Notice the teeny snowflakes? They’re one of my favourite mini stamps and give the extra hint that it’s a seasonal card (if the ‘Noel’ didn’t do it for you 😉) and that’s from the new In Bloom: Frenchie’s Festive Floral set.

Do check out the blog to see what the other girls created and see what a wonderful new set this is. It’s only while stocks last (plus you could get it when it’s released next year- but who likes waiting?!!)

Happy shopping!

Winnie & Walter Tour of The Stars


Hello! Welcome to the culmination of a creative week showcasing the wonderful new Winnie & Walter release. It all starts over on the blog and hopefully if you’re hopping in order, you’ll have come from the supremely creative Kelly Griglione

I’ve used one of the sets shown yesterday- ‘Seasons Tweetings’

See the igloo? I thought if I stamped it twice onto some acetate and adhered it together, I could create a human hamster ball to put little Mr Snowman in. 

I’ve made the background using more Molotow masking pen dots onto a card base, adding distress inks over the top and then rubbing away the masking dots. 


The next lovely star on the hop is the lovely Lydia Evans and I can’t wait to have a look around at everything that the other girls have produced. 

Hope you have enjoyed seeing the new products that are all available from Winnie & Walter here now. 

Do leave comments on the Winnie & Walter blog entries from the last week for a chance to win each day’s release plus one lucky winner will win the entire release! 

For this blog hop, 5 randomly chosen commenters across all the blogs will win $30 each to spend in the W&W store. Comments must be left by Monday Nov 21st at noon CST! 

See you soon xx

Winnie & Walter November Release Day 4


Hey! How are you doing today?

Day 4 already! Hope you’ve been enjoying all these sneaks of the new release.

Today I’m showing the cutest set ‘Happy Owlidays’ with Evelin T Designs for Winnie and Walter . I adore this set- full of cute characters plus lots of small images and extras to make a scene. The owl pair are one stamp and when I saw the bough, I thought it would make a lovely handle for a nature ‘lamppost’ combined with a star which they’ve caught to give some light.


I began by stamping onto some card with Archival Ink and then adding dots of Molotow masking pen. Leave it to dry really well and then add some Gansai Watercolours.Once you’ve coloured in, rub off the masking fluid and you’re left with a snow effect. I used quite light colours but if you use darker shades, the effect is even more pronounced.

Do pop over to the blog  and see what the other girls have created. We’re also showing the matching cutaway die set plus another new set-‘Seasons Tweetings’.

Don’t forget to comment on each day on the Winnie & Walter blog for a chance to win that day’s release or even the whole shebang! The release is available to purchase tonight at 10pm CST

Thanks for visiting and do check back tomorrow for a wonderful blog hop including our superstar guest Virginia Lu!

Winnie & Walter November Release Day Three

Hello again to another day of Winnie & Walter November release showcase! The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that yesterday’s post was entitled Day 3- that as mistake on my part, but I’d already sent the permalink over, so had to stick with it. Today is PROPERLY Day Three!

So- two sets for you today..Framed With Evelin T designs and Typecast:Cary. I’ve combined them in a modern kind of Christmas greeting!


The little ‘splodges’ are highly useful little diddy stamps in the Frames set and the numbers and letters are from the Typecast stamps.

I’ve actually added a tiny bauble from one of the other sets I’m showing tomorrow- it just needed a little extra something!


Pop along to the blog again to see more products and some beautiful projects. You can actually win the Whole release or each day’s individual showings, so do get commenting on the blog!

I’ll be back again with some very very cute characters tomorrow. You’re going to love them!

Winnie & Walter November Release Day 3

Welcome! It’s an exciting week as Winnie and Walter are having their long awaited release!img_9164

Today on the Winnie & Walter blog, there are several products being showcased. I’ve used two in this hanging wreath- Frenchie’s Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez & Carly Cutaways. The Carly Cutaways creates solid (or as in here) bauble style frames. There are inner circles which can be used on their own (and create a hole-pricked border). You can use them as simply tags after Christmas as without anything Christmassy on, they don’t look bauble-like!

The Frenchie’s Festive Florals come with a matching Cutaway set (dies) and this took all the hard work out of trimming (I did put rather a lot of individual elements). There’s a solid pear image, poinsettia, fir cone, lots of foliage, berries and snowflakes. A set that you will be able to use way beyond Christmas. Here’s a little close-up and you can probably see the cutout top part you can thread ribbon or twine through.


Do go and see the other products for today. My release products got stuck in customs for a few days, so I only got them yesterday and couldn’t spend as much time on them as I would have liked.

The release is available from Friday 18th at 10pm EST and we have a big old hop on the Saturday which all the creative team are being involved with- so don’t miss that!

Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a little of this set- I’d love to hear too how your Christmas crafting plans are going!

Stampin’Up! Winter Catalogue Haul

Having been a demo a little while back, I keep track of what’s happening from my lovely friend Zoe Tant.

I popped in an order for some items ready to do Christmas gifting and when they arrived I had a quick play

This first card is wonderfully simple. That’s one large stamp embossed with some blue glitter embossing powder from Wow!

It’s embossed onto some matt Dura-lar but vellum would have a similar effect. I’ve attached it by an adhesive sticky dot underneath where I was sticking the bow and bells.

It’s called Merry Medley ( 142152) and the great thing about it is that you can cut individual parts out to create smaller sentiments.

This next one shows you the tag I’ve made and it’s relative size to the stamp.

I fell in love with the following die and stamp set. It was the tag that sold it- although the Framelits set comes with way more than just one tag 

I’ve created a little shaker tag and coloured the individual elements with Zig clean color markers. Unfortunately I left the tag in the sun and it’s bleached a little so I’m going to have to do it again. I’m going to make simpler ones for my Christmas parcels, they’re just a clever set!

If you fancy having a nose at the new Winter catalogue- check it out here.

If you fancy ordering anything- just pop over to Zoe Tant’s online shop and you can get it delivered to your door!  I’ve also got some lovely stencils ( super cheap too!) but that’s for another post!

Hope you’ve enjoyed something a little different. Have you organised yourself for Christmas gift giving or are you happily ignoring it until December?!
