Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Four + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m back with my last post for Winnie & Walter as their Leading Lady this month. Big thanks for talking with me today!
Today I want to share with you my simple (white on kraft) wedding card using the Bed of Roses Stamp Set and the Cary Numbers Cutaways.
I started by heat embossing rose images from the Bed of Roses set on kraft card stock in white. I then trimmed it down with the Lana Cutaways. I then partially coloured the stamped image with white polychromos pencil.
I die cut “&” from white card stock using the Cary Numbers Cutaways five times, and then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen – I made it thicker like chipboard. Lastly, I mounted the rose background panel on an A2 sized top-folded kraft card base using foam tape first, added white ampersand die cut using fine tip glue pen, and then stamped the “you + me” sentiment (from the Sentimental: Love set) in black pigment ink.

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, Take Three HERE.

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!!!

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.
