Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Week 5!
I feel like singing, ‘and now, the time is here, I’ll face the final curtain’ 😉
My final week over at Winnie & Walter’s blog as Leading Lady. Who was to know it would be so much fun and how much it would stretch my creativity. I said to Shay (one of the W&W owners) that I’d not really done flower cards very much…but now I LOVE them! This next flower project is one of my favourite cards ever!
I’m loosely basing my projects around ‘gift giving’ this week; hope you can see where I’m going with it! I haven’t posted all of my projects here, so do pop over to the Winnie & Walter blog to see the other two
I wanted it to look like a bunch of flowers, with the vase as the card base. I’ve mixed and matched flowers from both ‘In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora’ and ‘In bloom: Anna’s Flora’. These sets work interchangeably so well because the sizings are the same- which means you get more use out of them. I’ve simply added the sentiment from Winter Woodland
To make it ‘beyond the card’, I’ve added a little acetate frame that I adhere to the front of the card (but knew I’d cover with the blooms). Granted, it does show at the back, but you could add more flowers on the back of the card, which would be a lovely touch. It was for my Mum who had a special Birthday so it had to be a little bit more special!
I’ve gone a little different for my next gift! A pair of earrings!
I’ve made these pretty quickly (and very easily) using the new In Bloom: Paulina’s Greenery Cutaways and black shrink plastic!
I simply die cut the shrink plastic and then shrank them. They were a little wriggly whilst shrinking and probably need a coat of varnish just to give a little strength. For the background I used the Mini Scenery: Multifaceted stamp.
My last (& super quick) project is more of a message from me rather than an actual tag. It was to say ‘thank you’ for having me (Shay & Julie) and for you blog readers for all being so supportive of my projects. It’s been a joy to be with Winnie & Walter the past few weeks, and hugs to all of you.
In case you’re wondering, I’ve die cut the In A word: Hugs cutaway into a piece of cardstock die-cut with the new Leaf Effect Cutaway. I die cut it onto some plain card too. Add some distress inks onto the top of the word. Fold the Leaf Effectpibece in half and adhere to a folded piece of vellum. Insert the ‘hugs’ piece and add sequins to finish!
If you still wanted a chance to win the £30 gift voucher which Shay & Julie have kindly donated, just answer this question..what one thing makes you smile the most?! You’ve got until Nov 2nd to answer that. After Nov 2nd, I’ll tally up all the answers/comments and randomly pick a winner and will announce it here.
Thanks for visiting me over the past few weeks, you have no idea how much you’ve made me smile!
