Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Three + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m back with my third post for Winnie & Walter as their Leading Lady this month. Two weeks already gone.. time really flies!!
One of my church members is expecting a baby girl in a few months so I wanted to make a cute baby shaker card for her! I am always happy to make baby cards!!
To start off, I created my own background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora and the Welcome to the Family stamp sets. I stamped images on watercolor paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink, roughly coloured the panel with Tattered Rose Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down with the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. I then die cut ‘baby’ sentiment using the In a Word: Baby Cutaway and adhered acetate sheet to back of the panel.
I stamped and watercolored the baby bear (from the Welcome to the Family set) with Distress markers, die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I used the Sketchy Thoughts stamp set.
This baby bear.. soooooooo cute!!!

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce one lucky winner at the end of the month! Take One HERE, Take Two HERE.

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Two + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments to my first Leading Lady post for Winnie & Walter last week. I read them over and over!! :)
Today’s card, I used my most favourite technique, random stamping + Distress marker watercolouring, using so adorable Big Hugs Stamp Set.
To start, I randomly stamped images from the Big Hugs set (hearts from the Welcome to the Family stamp set) on watercolor paper in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then trimmed the paper down using rectangle panel die.
I watercoloured all stamped images with Distress markers and water brush, background with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a wet paint brush. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Big Hugs set in white, die cut it with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways. Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted the watercoloured panel on navy card base using foam tape, and then sentiment die cut on it using foam tape as well.

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take One + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m SO excited (and so honoured) to be May’s Leading Lady with Winnie & Walter! Yay, May is one of my favourite months!!

Today I will be sharing with you my watercolor floral background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves stamp sets.

I started by heat embossing outlined flowers and leaves from two flower stamp sets (In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves) on watercolor paper in white. I stamped images using Versamark embossing ink, and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I then watercolored the stamped background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet flat brush. I applied clean water on the panel first, and then added warm colours. I used (dark to light) No.36 Wine Red, No.32 Red, No.33 Orange, No.43 Mid Yellow.
For the image on the watercoloured panel, I decided not to color. I just stamped an adorable baby elephant from the Welcome to the Family set in black ink, and then die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I heat embossed “Sending big hugs” from the Big Hugs set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it out with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways.
Once the watercolored panel was completely dry, I trimmed it out with the larger rectangle panel die in the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. Finally, I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded white card base using foam tape.

The Stamp Market – From Me To You

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
I am SO excited and happy to be a guest designer for The Stamp Market! I love their fresh and unique style so much!! Today I want to share with you my couple of floral cards with so gorgeous Kindness Noted Stamp Set and Papillon Stamp & Cut Bundle.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping flowers from the Kindness Noted set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I then lightly coloured them with Distress inks and water brush – I used Festive Berries, Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, and Pumice Stone. Next, I stamped and die cut the butterfly from the Papillon Stamp & Cut Bundle. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Kindness Noted set on black card stock in white. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the butterfly die cut and the sentiment banner using foam tape.

Here is another card that I used the same way as the first card but using different colours.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
