Ready Set Stamp with LLC – Merry & Bright Christmas with Winnie & Walter

Hello everyone! Welcome to another installment of Ready, Set, Stamp with LLC. Today my two friends Laurel Beard and Catherine Pooler and I are featuring Winnie & Walter products. The products we’re featuring are part of the October 2015 Release and they’re gorgeous!


We decided to use the following products: In Bloom: Hollie’s Festive Florals + Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs and Essentials: Noelle Cutaways.

I started out by die cutting a scalloped and stitched panel using the Noelle Cutaways. I love that die cut set because it comes with so many dies and shapes that could be used for holiday and everyday cards. After I die cut it, I heat embossed a greeting on the panel using the Merry and Bright with Evelin T Designs set. I used a gorgeous embossing powder from WOW called Sensational Sage.

rsswllc_w&w_fullCan we just take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this embossing powder? 🙂 This is seriously one of the prettiest powders I have ever seen! Look at that pretty green color and the subtle gold, white and silver glitters in it. It’s fantastic and I could stare at this picture for hours. After embossing the sentiment, I stamped some poinsettias from the Hollie’s Festive Florals set. This stamp set can be used for layered stamping which is one of my favorite techniques out there!

rsswllc_w&w_close_upSince this is a Christmas card, I thought it needed quite a lot of bling bling! First, I added sparkle to the poinsettias using a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. I also added tiny dots of Star Dust Stickles in the center of the flowers. Finally, I adhered a couple of sequins from The Ton. I wanted to add an extra shiny touch to this card so I adhered some pearls and gems from Hero Arts to cover up the little hole of the sequins. 🙂



As I mentioned in the beginning of this post and in the video, this card is part of Ready, Set, Stamp with LLC. My two friends Catherine and Laurel and I teamed up to bring you a monthly video series! Each month we feature products from one company and there’s always a giveaway to make it even more fun! Go and check out Catherine’s and Laurel’s video’s and blog posts:
