Winnie & Walter Leading Lady - Week 4

Happy Saturday today is my final week of taking over at the Winnie & Walter blog as the August Leading Lady. I have had such a great time playing with you all each week with so many fabulous Winnie & Walter products. Thank you Shay for letting me have the spotlight this month!





For my final week I am creating three cards using one stamp set. I liked this set before, but now that I have worked with the layered stamps I am totally in love with the In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans stamp set. I used the layering guide that you can find in the Storyboard for this set on the Winnie & Walter blog HERE. The guide made lining up the layers for these images foolproof.

I chose three colours schemes and I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves with the co-ordinating Cutaways. I also die cut both sizes of the 'beautiful' sentiment so that I could chose as I arranged my cards. Although I am using the same stamped florals for each card I wanted my designs to be distinctively different.

Once I had all the pieces stamped and die cut I lightly sponged backgrounds on my card bases with the Scenery: Triangled Creative Screenings. I adhered the flowers to each card in a different postition and arrangement adding foam tape to the main flower for dimension. On the completed cards I added a few sequins for balance and filled each sequin with some silver Stickles for added sparkle!












Don't forget I have a  $30 gift certificate for Winnie & Walter gift certificate to giveaway on my blog, In My Creative Opinion.

So glad to know W&W has layering guides! These are all beautiful, Tracey! I love seeing how just changing colors can totally change the look of a card--makes it more fun to use the same products over & over! You've been a great Leading Lady--thanks for all the inspiration!

Your cards are so pretty and fresh. I adore the lovely layered stamping on the flowers and the gentle stenciling that gives a subtle depth to your designs. These remind me of freshly laundered pillowcases right off the clothesline in the spring. I can just smell that tangy clean fragrance....mmmmmmm....
