Winnie & Walter Share the Love – Days 3, 4, and 5

Here I am with my other 3 cards for the Winnie & Walter Share the Love featuring Essentials by Ellen!


Hang on tight – this is ANOTHER LONG post!!!

~ Sparkly Fireworks Background card ~


I began with this card to die cut a stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn) out of some shiny silver paper. I then cut a piece of white card stock to fit just inside the stitched lines. Then I stamped the dandelion looking image from Bohemian Garden by Essentials by Ellen. I stamped with Versamark ink, embossed with silver powder and then stamped slightly off again with Brilliant Blue and Real Red (SU!).  The hope was to create a background – a sky full of fireworks, hopefully you see it! I stamped the little stars from the Sugar Rush set by Winnie & Walter in the same colors. Using the same silver paper and a sentiment from the Sugar Rush set I used white embossing powder  to make a banner and added that to my card.

~My Fireworks want to dazzle these challenges~

My card is definitely Red, White, AND Blue!!!

For my fourth card I made this:

~ Transparent Birthday Card with Flowers ~


Began with a top folding A2 card of Cool Caribbean card stock (SU!) Added a horizontal stitched strip (MFT) from Certainly Celery card stock (SU!) that I cut a notch in. A circle was die cut (MFT) out of watercolor paper to stamp the flowers from Bohemian Garden set made by Essentials by Ellen. I used Only Orange, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery ink (all SU!) to stamp my garden of flowers, then I blended the colors with a wet paintbrush. Splatters of Night of Navy ink (SU!) were added. Die cut the word Happy from Winnie & Walter out of Night of Navy card stock. The vellum piece was die cut using a stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn). I stamped the word birthday from the Sugar Rush set (also W&W) with Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder. The sentiment was added using foam squares that I had trimmed down and for extra bling I added sequins with some micro glue dots!

My fifth and final card made yesterday:

~ Just a Note Trifold Card ~

wwmoodboard1adj  wwmoodboard2adj

Taking a 4″ by 8″ piece of white card stock – I scored it at 2″ and 6″ – I then added some  American Crafts gold glitter paper to each edge and then folded them together to get a tri-fold card. I mounted this part to a 4 1/4 square of black card stock. I stamped the 3 small hearts, large heart and the just a note sentiment from the Fancy Thanks set made by Essentials by Ellen. The star and banner came from the Winnie & Walter set called Sugar Rush. The colors I used were Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Cool Caribbean, Only Orange, and Marigold Morning. (All from Stampin’ Up!). The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

~I am happy to play with this fun card in these challenges~

I was drawn by the black and white, the orange colors, the pink colors, the aqua color, and the touches of gold.

I used Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks set AND Sugar Rush by Winnie & Walter for my card!

    Oh WOWZER!! These cards rock!! I love the ‘fireworks” on the first card in the silver, blue and red. So festive!! The second card is my favorite with that lovely flower. Orange and aqua is my favorite color combo too!! Love the trip-fold design. I need to start making other card shapes. I find them so hard to do!

    You are so creatively clever! Turning a dandelion image into fireworks and the third sketch into a tri-fold card…brilliant!!! The vellum panel on your second card is a beautiful detail. I love how it creates an area where the image is softened but we can still see the gorgeous colors you used. Awesome job on this trio!
