My love of Winnie & Walter products began a couple years ago when a friend sent me In a Word: Hello Cutaway. I thought it only fitting to begin with a post focusing on this wonderfully versatile die.
For my first card I randomly stamped a solid leaf image from A Tree for All Seasons in Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy & Pearlescent Thyme. Then I stamped the matching lined image in Versafine Clair Acorn purposely not lining it up exactly.
Essentials: Tilda Cutaways. I love the fun edge plus the pierced border. The word was die cut from the panel being careful to save the little bits which were glued in place after the panel was attached to a brown card front.
The Big, the Bold & the Happy in the same brown ink, trimmed it into a strip, matted it with brown cardstock & attached it with foam tape. I didn't add any embellishments so this card could go to a guy or a gal.
Next up is a birthday card that lets the hello die be the star of the show, thanks to the new Scenery: Pennsylvania Polka Creative Screenings. I used 6 Distress Oxide inks (picked raspberry, abandoned coral, fossilized amber, cracked pistachio, faded jeans & wilted violet) moving the stencil before going to each new color. Doesn't it give a fun confetti look?
The Big, the Bold & the Happy were white embossed on black cardstock & trimmed into strips. I love the look of adding them right on top of the large die cut word. Black & white twine was tied into a bow before adding the panel to a black card front.
I have one more card for you and this one is floral and feminine--a favorite for me & hopefully you like it, too. I stamped a wreath using flowers from In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers along with leaves and dots from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals in Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, Pearlescent Coral & Pearlescent Jade.
Now you can see why I love the In a Word: Hello Cutaway and hopefully you've gotten some inspiration for your own crafting. I'll be back with another Winnie & Walter post next Saturday. Be sure to leave a comment below to be in the running for the gift certificate.
