{Winnie & Walter Video} January Release Preview, Sugar Rush + The Party

I hope you've been enjoying all the first birthday celebrations over at Winnie & Walter! There are too many giveaways to list here but you should definitely check them out.  As one of their Guest Stars this month, I'm excited to give you a closer look at two of their new stamp sets, Sugar Rush and The Party!

I stamped all of the images and sentiments in Versamark ink on watercolour cardstock. Then I used Gansai paints to colour the entire panel. I had to make a birthday card for my cousin's daughter who recently turned two so I used colours for that occasion.

The custom sentiment, cake, stand and banner are all from Sugar Rush. The curly ribbons hanging at the top of the card are from The Party.  I also used coordinating patterned papers from Bo Bunny's Candy Cane Lane 6x6 paper pad.

Both the Sugar Rush and The Party stamp sets will be available for purchase on January 30, 2015 and I will update my links as soon as they go live in the store.

I'll be back soon to share more from this very special release.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Neat & Tangled} Birthday Tags + Tiny Triangles

I'm up on the Neat & Tangled Blog today to sharing this birthday card using the newly-released Birthday Tags dies, as well as the Tiny Triangles die. I die cut the Tiny Triangles and used it as a stencil. After creating three colours of embossing paste on a Ranger Craft Sheet, I applied the paste to a piece of linen cardstock in three sections and set it aside to dry.

After die cutting both Birthday Tags from patterned paper and Ranger foil cardstock, I layered them with a bit of foam tape and inserted the foil letters into the negative spaces. I used two chartreuse papers from Heidi Swapp's Dreamy 6x6 paper pad and two navy papers from Echo Park's Creative Agenda 6x6 paper pad.

After the embossing paste dried, I adhered it flat to a sheet of chartreuse houndstooth paper which I then popped on to the navy stripes with foam tape. To finish, I stapled white silk ribbon at the top of the tags and tied a bow.  Then I adhered the stacked tags to the embossing paste panel with foam tape.
