Day 1 - Winnie & Walter Premiere of Parentsville

Hello Everyone... is an exciting week for Winnie & Walter. Its March Premiere of new stamp sets and cut-files that will be available on March 15

Today we are introducing the Parentsville stamp set. This stamp set is perfect for the coming Mother and Father's day. 

Information on cut-files: Cut-Files will be a free with purchase with the coordinating stamp set until March 30. They will still be available for purchase separately too if you just want the cut files :) Let me tell you these cut-files are fantastic! These will get lots of uses for sure :)

For my first card, I used some of my patterned paper newsprint from Prima, and cut a black panel to add as a background for my panel. The panel I used is from the Winnie & Walter cut-files "File Basics" that will be available on March 15. Really love this cut-files which has a lot of possibilities. After cutting the cut-file, I distress the cut panel with Tim Holtz Distress inks: Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers, Black Soot, and Stormy Sky

For the sentiments "So glad you're my" I used the Versafine Onxy Black ink. The "DAD" sentiment, I also used the Versafine Onxy Black ink and some Gold Embossing powder on some part of the letters to give it a hint of gold, after all we don't want it too goldy...Ha! But the "Happy Father's Day" is embossed in gold.

As for the big bow, this is of the cut-files that is included with the stamp set if you purchase the stamps the cut-files is already included for free but only until March 30. I just added some white gel pen on the bow to make it polka dot. 

To finish of the card just added some splatter here and there using Mr. Huey's Opaque White and Shine.

Just another look from this view. I added some foam dots on the bow for dimensions.

For the second Dad card just very easy and simple. I just stamped the top of my card panel with the diamond image that is included in the set. I also added some black splatters here and there. The stars image is from W&W Scenery Big Bang Confetti set.

For the bottom of the card I stamped again with the diamond image, then just stamped the other images that are part of the set and the sentiments.

To finish off the card just adhere the panel on top of the pattern paper and black cardstock to finish the card.

Here's the full view.

Moving on to my third card...for MOM, I made this very feminine and soft.  For the panel of my card before I did some inking I first emboss it using Maggie Holmes Embossing Folder Styleboard Doilies. After embossing I then distress the tips of the panel then stamped the fun images for Mom that's included in the Parentsville stamp set (purse, shoes, and gloves). 

The flowers and leaves are part of the cut-files of Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom. I also added an enamel dot on top of the flower.

For the sentiment: The "Mom" I stamped it first on a white cardstock and then fussy cut...which I love doing, I also added some foam dots to add dimensions. The "for a wonderful"  sentiment I just stamped it directly on the panel.

To finish off the card I just added some splatters from Heidi Swapp color shine in Blush and Gold. I then added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Marshmallow and Mini Sparkling Clear sequins in 4mm so cute.

Just another view of the dimensions.

For my last card, I featured the purses for Mom. For this panel is another simple card, flat card but full of colors. For my card base I first smooshed it on the mat with Delicata gold ink and some Aqua mist ink, I just added some water and let it dry to get the hint of gold. 

For my panel, I did some watercolor effect which is fun because it doesn't have to be perfect *-*.  I first ink my clear stamp image then spray it with water, then I just move some of the water on the clear stamp with my fingers before stamping it on the panel.  

For the inks, pretty much worked with what i have, I tried this technique with Hero Arts ink, Papertrey Ink inks, and Distress inks.

Once the ink is all dry, then I stamped my sentiments and I'm done :)

Here's the full view of the card.
