    Glitter and Leaves

    Hiya I dug through my scraps again for this card and found this gorgeous gold glittery background I had stencilled with W&W madison stencil. Next I found some daffodils and tulips I had ‘coloured’ some time ago and were sitting neglected. I prepped a side folding card base with leaves from W&W Addies garden set which I stamped with versamark ink on the orange cardstock for some subtle added interest. I am entering this card into the following challenges: W&W Use your scraps challenge with Kelly w&w Four Challenge with Shay …………….

    Hydrangeas shaker card

    Hi my friends I created a 5″shaker card today with lots and lots of sequins and beads to shake about. I used Sss square die to create a frame and an inner rectangle and used waterproof black memento ink and stamped flowers and leaves from Winnie and Walter Addies Gardens so that the flowers where on the rectangle and the frame. Next I watercoloured the inner flowers with zig clean colour markers and when dry added some extra interest with a white gel pen. After turning it into a shaker card I attached it to a square card base and stamped the sentiment from Winnie and Walter sending you set.…

    Hello Shaker Card

    Hi my friends, I spent a pleasurable hour grappling with this card and learning from multiple mistakes 🙊🤣, hopefully the next time will be much easier. I knew I wanted to turn the Home die by Winnie and Walter into a shaker word and I think I tried every way possible to get it sealed properly so that those beads don’t go everywhere, lol. I must have been tired the day I made this because it really is a simple technique. I did lots of diecutting of the home die – multiple times with stick it adhesive sheets and fun foam and then cutting up tiny bits of acetate and…

    Happy Anniversary Card

    Hi everyone   I was asked to make a 25th Anniversary card and I had a pile of the cutes images from Welcome to the family stamp set by W&W on my desk. I used a heart embossing folder by Stampin Up, painted some of the raised hearts with pearlescent gansai tambi paints (the original paints and I mixed them with pearlescent paint), copic coloured the cute bunnies, added a sentiment and some shimmery pink thread. This card is for the following challenges: Four Challenge with Shay: I used 4 main colours – black white pink and blue Watercolour with a twist with Heather – paint and copics used Use…

    Pastel rainbow new baby card

    Hi friends Who doesn’t love a bright rainbow coloured card? This card is inspired by Vanessa Menhorn after we were challenged by Taheerah to CASE another Winnie and Walter designer. Here is Vanessa’s card: I softly ink blended my background using the gorgeous madison stencil by W&W. I dug through my pile of precut images from the W&W welcome to the family stamp set, used copics to colour and added a new baby embossed sentiment from reverse confetti. Every time I look at this it makes me smile. I hope it brightens a moment of your day too! I am entering this card into the following challenges: Comeback Challenge with…
