#596 – A Bit of Pattern Paper, A Bit of Acetate

Hello! I have been trying a few favorite media, mixing and matching them. My source of inspiration is still the challenges going on for the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations.

Thanks For Everything

I used pattern paper, then some handmade pattern paper using the stripes from Scenery: Stripes (I swiped the ink pads here, instead of dabbing the ink) and then acetate, on which I head embossed gold ep after stamping the gems from My Precious stamp set. Oh, I used Zig two way glue behind the gems for adhering the acetate – I applied it, let it dry and become tacky before adhering it.

Thanks For Everything

After adhering the pieces on the card base, I used the banner from The Big, the Bold and Extras, and sentiment stamps, fussy cut them, adhered them on the card.

Thanks For Everything

This card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations – Mood Board Challenge with Heather P (chose the main colors from the mood board), Pattern-Making Challenge with Mayuri and Three Challenge with Shay (I’ve got three sheets in the background; three words forming the sentiment)

#590 – Off The Page

PE: Featured as a favorite in Color Throwdown 431!

Hello! I am posting another card for theΒ Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations. My main source of inspiration is Keren’s Off the Page Challenge. I never made a card with anything hanging off, thinking I’d never be able to mail it anyway. But I decided to at least give it a try this time – I was sure I would love it…and I did!! πŸ™‚

Hello

To make this card, I used one of the flower images from the In Bloom: Addie’s Garden stamp set, which has always given me a hard time with ideas; but seemed just perfect this time. I stamped the images on a scrap cardstock panel using MISTI, then used ink smooshing technique with distress inks. I then fussy cut out the images.

Hello

For the sentiment, I used partial die-cutting using the Hello die. I then ink blended the background using distress inks and Scenery – Madison Creative Screenings stencil. I then adhered the flowers and then some small silver sequins for embellishing.

Submitting this card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations – Ink Smooshing with Heather H, Sequins Challenge with Kate, Stencil Challenge with Kelly, Off the Page Challenge with Keren, Ink Blending Challenge with Vanessa

#589 – A Precious Shaker Card

Hello! Continuing withΒ Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations, I made a few more cards this weekend. I’ll post them one by one. The first one is shaker card, made using Winnie & Walter My Precious and Scenery: Stripes stamp sets.

You Are Precious To Me

I used MISTI to stamp the gems on a card panel. The first time I am using MISTI for this purpose – I usually just eyeball and stamp.. and I have only used MISTI when I need to stamp the image twice.. or some special cases.. So anyway, easy to see how pretty it came out. Once done, I stamped the stripes and then the sentiment on another panel using MISTI too. I then adhered these together to make the shaker, finally adhering it to the card base.

You Are Precious To Me

This card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations –

I used Basically Essential stencil with some white embossing paste for the background, topping it with flowers from Winnie & Walter’s In Bloom: Addie’s Garden. The flowers are vellum, with white heat embossed images, colored using Zig brush markers. I trimmed them, then arranges them with the sentiment from Stamplorations Amazing die and a tiny ‘you’re’ from Winnie & Walter’s The Big, The Bold and Party. And a few silver sequins for embellishment complete the card!

#585 – Happy 3rd for Winnie & Walter & Happy 300 for Friday Inspiration File

whew…that’s a long title…!! πŸ˜€

But that’s what this post is for – celebrating two fantastic achievements! I wanted to take part in these, by, of course, playing with their challenges! πŸ™‚

A very big congratulations to Winnie and Walter for completing a very successful 3 years and a big congrats to Kara Vrabel (of K and R Designs) in giving us 300 weeks of inspiration by way of her Friday Inspiration Files!!Β  I am a big fan of both the company and the lady! And I’ve made a couple of cards to be a part of both challenges. Showing the first one here –

Hello Friend

I made this card inspired by…quite a few things, actually. πŸ˜‰ First, I was inspired by Aga’s card (Week 265), then I wanted the card to have three colors, and got the perfect set of colors with the Seven Hills Crafts Challenge this month. I got the perfect stamp set too – Winnie and Walter’s In Bloom: Eva’s Favorite Flowers. This stamp set is just perfect when you want to make anything geometrical! Love it!! πŸ™‚

Aga #265:

So, after drawing some light pencil lines for reference, I eye balled and stamped all the images, finally coming to the sentiment. I was super tempted to add dimension or even embellishing (it really is tough for me to make such a super CAS card!!) but I left it be.. Oh, and I did add that circle using a green gel pen from Uniball… I wish they had every color I wanted, the pens are great!

Hello Friend

Well wrapping off – I am submitting the card to the following challenges –

Seven Hills Crafts February Challenge (I used turquoise, lime and grey) –
