Winnie & Walter August Leading Lady Take 5

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Hi all!! Today I want to share with you my cards for Winnie & Walter August Leading Lady Take 5!
This is my last post as August Leading Lady. I'm so grateful that Winnie & Walter pick me and I have so much fun playing with their products. Thank you so much!!
And the theme today is all about DIY Background. You can make it with many different techique. This time I'm playing with stamps and dies.

So here is my first  card :


Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
The Big, the Bold and Extras for the images and "smile girl" sentiment
In a Word : Hugs Cutaway for the background and hugs die cut


To make the background, first I'm using Dye Ink and blending tool and then die cut the Hugs cutaway with Spellbinders Enlarged Embossing Pads.
 
I stamp the flowers and leaves with black ink and die cut it. I die cut hugs sentiment on black card stock and a white foam, then glue it together. The "smile girl" sentiment is from white embossing powder on pink card stock.

 And here is my second card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
My Precious for the background and sentiment

I stamp the diamond with grey ink and coloring with copic, then I add a vellum. The sentiment is from white embossing powder. I add twine and sequins for the finishing touch.

And here is my last card :


Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
The Party for the sentiment

First I'm using masking technique and stamp the flowers and leaves using Dye Ink and add some gradation using Dye Ink and blending tool. The sentiment is from gold embossing powder and I tied the tag using green twine.

And here is the fun part!

Julie & Shay have generously given me a $30 gift card to the Winnie & Walter store for giveaway! For your chance to win please leave a comment on the Leading Lady posts on my personal blog. I will draw a random winner at the end of the month.   

I read all your comments on my previous post and your supports means a lot to me. Thank you so much all! I hope you inspire with my cards for August Leading Lady :)


Hugs,
Melania Deasy

  7. Hi Melania ... can we talk? I love the impressed hugs card - even tried that one myself, but found that the first impressions got smooshed when I sent it through the machine to do the others! How did you manage to keep them all so perfect? I use a Cuttlebug, do you? Loved all of your cards - happy to see them, always.
