Spotlight with Winnie and Walter Part Two

I have my second post in Winnie and Walter's spotlight and I think it's a fun one! I hope you will pop over to their blog to have a look at my take on making a bunch of embellishments using their stamps. You can find the post here and here's a peek at what we are making Now here are some links to things that may help you duplicate some of these things if you don't have the dies and such to make some of the embellishments Here is a Library Pocket Mirkwood Designs has a lot of other great templates as well so you may want to take a peek at their other templates offered. If you don't have a die for a small paper rose then here is how it is done without a die Paper Roses a smaller circle with a smaller spiral makes a smaller flower, experiment...I personally like a thin paper for these so you could practice on copy paper or book paper. Now for the little envelopes I simply used scraps of double sided paper that were 2."X3" and then on then I scored at 3/4" all the way around for the flaps and I cut the corners out at a slight angle but you could cut the top and bottom flaps in a triangular shape if you prefer. here's how to make a pinwheel if you've never done one! for the circles on the paper clips etc. you could hand draw your circles on the back of your paper freehand or you could trace small circles and cut out, they don't have to be perfect...rough up the edges and ink up the circles and no one will know the difference! Really just have a look at your dies and supplies, dig into that stash and start playing you'll be amazed with what you can come up with. The number one and pretty much only rule...HAVE FUN! :D

  1. Dolly, your post over at W&W is nothing short of AWESOME! What a wonderful way to create our own embellishments, and your photos of how seemingly random bits merge into the most delight pieces is absolutely amazing! The hearts, wee flower and Eiffel Tower is incredibly eye-catching, as are all those with the wee butterflies (I'm rather obsessed with butterflies!). Inspired and inspiring ways to use our 'small' Winnie and Walter stamps...you've just amped up their versatility immensely! Your passion for W&W and for crafting: delightful! Thank you!
