Winnie & Walter August Release Tour of Stars

Hey there, blog friends!  I am super excited about tonight, because this is my first time officially participating in a Winnie & Walter release as part of The Talent!  I've been on the team for a little while now, but was unable to be part of the last release due to my schedule in July.  I am super excited to be playing along!!

This month we are having one big blog hop to showcase all the new product.  We are releasing three new stamp sets this month, in a new LARGE size!!  These stamp sets are 6x8, and chalk FULL of images.  I think you are going to love them so much!

For my first card, I used the new Halloween set called "Moonlight".  I kept it nice & simple, but added a little bit of artsy to it by watercoloring the background in orange & yellow and flinging some black droplets on it (which also flung all over my face, & I totally giggled when I looked at myself in the mirror). 





Keeping with the season, I created a more fall themed card using the new stamp set called "A Tree for All Seasons".  I kept a neutral color palette for the most part, other than the sweet little red bird.  I thought it was a nice small pop of color to a card that was mostly brown.

Considering this is a blog hop, you should have arrived here from Laura's blog, and your next stop is Mayuri's blog.  If you've happened upon this post, and want to participate in the entire blog hop...check out the Winnie & Walter blog for a full list & starting point!

These stamps are all available for purchase right now, so head on over to the Winnie & Walter store to pick up your must haves!!  I am also giving away a stamp set of the winner's choice from the August release!!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by August 31st at 11:59 pm CST, and I will pick a winner from all of the comments!! 

I hope that you've enjoyed my cards tonight....have an awesome start to your weekend!

Until later,
~L.
