Hi everyone!! Today I'm so excited to share with you my card for Winnie & Walter August Leading Lady Take 3!

Winnie & Walter products is so unique and innovative! Love the fresh and versatile designs.
The theme today is all about Shaker Card! I LOVE making shaker card, the blink and festive feel just make me happy!

So here is my first blue card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
In a Word : Hi Cutaway to die cut the big word Hi 

First, I'm using Dye Ink with blending tool to make the blue gradation, then I die cut it with Spellbinders Enlarged Embossing Pads. The result will not cutting the paper, but emboss it. I die cut the emboss paper with Hi Cutaway. Then I use all the die cut paper to make a shaker card. The sentiment is from white embossing powder on black card stock.

I want to make it simple & elegant for my second card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
In a Word : Hello Cutaway to die cut the word Hello
The Big, Bold and Extras Cutaways to die cut the flowers and leaves

First, I'm using masking tape and Dye Ink with blending tool to make the green background. Then I die cut it using Hello Cutaway. The Flowers is from white embossing powder on card stock then I die cut it . 
I also die cut the leaves without stamp it.

And here is my last card. It's soft and dreamy :


Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using :
In Bloom : Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya for the flowers
The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaways to die cut the word hugs
The Big, Bold and Extras Cutaways to die cut the vellum leaves

First, I stamp the flowers using Dye Ink and the middle using gold embossing powder. I cutting it manually. I die cut the leaves on vellum. For the shaker card, I die cut a circle, splash watercolor with my brush and then arrange the flowers and leaves. On inside shaker card, I die cut the word hugs with foam tape and white card stock, then I glue it. Adhere all and add twine for finishing touch.

And here is the fun part!
