Good Saturday morning! I'm excited to be back on the Winnie and Walter Blog again this morning to share some more fun projects with my Winnie and Walter stamps! Today I broke out the fun triangles from Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant and again made a variety of cards with the one main set - this time I made 3 completely different styles of cards!
First up, I went with a very clean and graphic card using the solid triangles. I used 3 different colors of My Favorite Things dye inks - so super juicy and perfect for inking up solid stamp images.
I started in the center to build my shape - starting with the largest solid triangle. The second triangle on each side of the large one was made by just partially inking up the large one - I needed something a little more in between the large and medium size, and that did the trick! Added a sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy heat embossed in white and a row of stitched sequins, die cut with Lil' Inker's Stitched Rectangle Die, and mounted on some soft gray Simon Says Stamp Cardstock.
Next up, I decided to play with a watercolor effect. I stamped some of the pattern triangles in a random pattern on watercolor paper, also using MFT dye ink. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I just misted a few times with water, then dried it with a heat gun. Perfect watercolor - and so easy!
Finished off with a sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the You and a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and mounted on a gray card base made with Simon Says Stamp Cardstock. One note: I have found that after you watercolor, the paper tends to curl up when you mount it on your card unless you use REALLY strong adhesive. I use Score-Tape and have found it to work GREAT!
And lastly, I started trying to think of things that were in a triangle shape. I thought of Christmas trees, and then all of a sudden I thought of making a teepee!
This was fun to build - this time I used Hero Arts shadow inks. The solid triangle stamp for the background in pale yellow, the chevron over the top in a deeper yellow, the tiny outline in that same deep yellow but only partially inked for the top, then gray with the tiny solid for the door. And the sentiment? That *might* be a tiny sneaky peek of the new release coming next week (wink-wink)! I softened the edges of that panel with some distress ink to blend it in a little better, then added a panel behind cut with an Avery Elle die and debossed with PTI's Pure Linen Impression Plate, and some pattern paper from Studio Calico.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget you have a chance throughout the month to win a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter just for leaving a comment!
Thanks so much Shay and Julie for giving me this fun opportunity! Have a wonderful day everyone!
