Congrats Karen and Dawn!   Please email us at info {at} winniewalter {dot} com.  Dawn, I will additionally need your mailing address.

Now on to this month's Rerun!

Each Rerun will provide plenty of inspiration focusing upon a featured product, a month-long sale on the featured product and a challenge (with a prize!) and giveaway.  You will not want to miss out!


For our nineteenth Rerun we are concentrating on Parentville.  This set came out in our second release back in 2014 to celebrate mothers and fathers with some retro inspired images that are fun to use for other occasions as well.

We followed up Parentville with Parentville Extras which is really an extension of the original Parentville.

You will see that you can use these sets very easily together or change up the bigger Mom with "Mama." "Mum" or "Mother" from Parentville Extras or vise versa and the same with Dad with "Papa" "Father" and "Pop" from Parentville Extras along with supporting sentiments which work with either set.  In fact our first Rerun concentrated on Parentville Extras which you can find HERE.

In honor of parents everywhere we will be putting both Parentville and Parentville Extras on sale this month and the comment giveaway is going to be extra special as the winner will receive Parentville and Parentville Extras!

Now on to the cards!



I wanted to do a mother and father card and originally I went with a background for the dad card using Parentville and Parentville Extras, but decided to hold off on it for my card in favor of a cleaner look that was very similar in design to the mom card I created. You can see the somewhat distressed background (guy cards are so much fun because if your stamping is imperfect it can actually enhance the design) I created under the dad card.  I may be able to create a card with it in the future.


On the navy panel I stamped "dad" from Parentville and "you are my" and "favorite" from Sentimental: Endearments in Versamark and then heat embossed them in white.  I thought the sentiment was appropriate dad humor.  I mounted the navy panel to a little larger golden yellow patterned paper panel.  I also cut out the bow tie using Take a Bow Cutaways from the same patterned paper and then stamped it with the outline wood grain from Scenery: Into the Woods to add a little interest.  I then adhered the little center from the same Take a Bow Cutaways using a glue dot for just a tiny bit of dimension.  I attached the bow tie to the navy panel using dimensional foam adhesive and the entire piece was then adhered to a white A2 card base using more foam dimensional adhesive.  Super easy and yet I really like how it turned out.


The mom card is actually for my grandmother (from my mom) for mother's day and since her favorite color is purple I knew that was my starting point.  I stamped "mom" from Parentville in Versamark and then heat embossed it in lavender on a strip of white cardstock.  I tried placing some die cut flowers around "mom" but I simply wasn't feeling it until I happened upon a piece of cardstock in which I had cut out some flowers using In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya Cutaways.  I used the negative space like a stencil and my inked and ink blending tool to add the flower shapes to the strip.  I then stamped the leaves from In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya.  To make the sentiment further pop from the flower background I stamped the "mom" again in a darker purple a little to the left of the embossed version.

I added the scallops to the back of the mom panel.  The scallops were created from cutting away the scallop trim die from Goldie Trim Cutaways from a piece of patterned paper .  The whole strip was then adhered with dimensional foam adhesive to an A2 card base covered with patterned paper.  Last I added some golden pearls to the center of the flowers.  Another easy card with a really pretty and fresh feel.

What I like about both cards is that although I made them for mother's day and father's day they don't say that on the outside so these cards could be used for birthdays, just because, a thank you, etc.

That's it from me...wait until you see what Heather H. and Kelly did with Parentville and/or Parentville Extras!

Love that the stamp sentiments can be mixed and matched for so many options!
