Sharing The Love at Winnie & Walter


I've been having a Winnie & Walter Fest over the last couple of days.  All this week Winnie & Walter have been sharing the love with Simon Says Stamp, with a different challenge every day.  Just one problem, I keep merging the challenges!  This first card was using the colours for Playdate No. 3, but I made it in 6 minutes 18 seconds so it qualifies for the Day 2 challenge - 10 Minute Dash.  And I think it also qualifies for Day 3 - Focus on 1 Stamp.





I've used the leaf mask from Simon Says and the sentiment from The Big, The Bold and The Happy.


This second card is also for the Day 2 - 10 Minute Dash, and Day 4 - One Layer Card.


This one took 5 minutes 22 seconds.  I saw a recent video by Shari Caroll of Simon Says Stamp where she resurrected a Tim Holtz technique.  I didn't use compressed air, I just splatted Distress Stains.  The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold and You, and the other stamps are from Simon Says Stamp, but I'm not sure what the sets are called (unlabelled blog candy).


This next one was going to be a one layer card, and I'm so glad I didn't set the stopwatch for it, it took forever!  The idea had been to cut the Merry Christmas sentiment, adhere it temporarily, wash colour over then reveal a white sentiment.  Unfortunately the inks soaked straight through the paper die cut I'd used.  So I cut another sentiment in white card and adhered it in place.  So it's no longer a one layer card.  But it does qualify for Day 3, focus on one stamp (Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant) and use one Simon Says Stamp product - die cut sentiment.


 Today's challenge is a sketch.  I've stretched it ever so slightly ;)



I laid the leaf cluster mask on my card panel, sprinkled it with Brusho powders (new toy) and spritzed, then removed the mask (and laid it on another piece of card).  Look at that fabulous detail, I love it!


I never did Day 1 - Rainbow.  I could be back!

  1. You have really been cranking out the W&W challenges, Shirley. These cards are all wonderful but I'm partial to the last one. I don't know what Brusho powders are but I love the effect.

  3. Wow ... lots of amazing inspiration here Shirley! Love all your cards for the Winnie and Walter challenges. Looked into Brushos (because of your card a week ago or so) ... not available in Canada --- we always seem to get new trends last :( But, hoping that mentioning this new medium at my local art store will spur them on to getting it in. Absolutely am in love with your card today using them ... amazing!

  10. I'm about a month behind reading your blog, and I am just giddy over this post. Even though they have been out for quite awhile, I just ordered these leaf stencils and masks and they are scheduled to arrive today. Such inspiration you have given me - all are lovely!
