Laura's First w&w Post!

Hey everyone! It's Laura here and today is my very first blog post as a Winnie & Walter Design Team Member. I am SO honored and happy to be part of this team.

Flowers make me oh-so happy. That's why I decided to use the awesome The Big, the Bold and the Extras stamp set. This stamp set has some really pretty flowers and great sentiments in it. There are endless possibilities using these flowers, but I decided to ink them up with Distress Inks and then mist the inked stamp using some water. You get a really nice and soft image by doing that.

After stamping the flowers, it was time for a greeting. I combined stamps from The Big, the Bold and the Happy stamp set and The Big, the Bold and the Extras. This greeting is perfect for newly-weds. Isn't that sparkle on the greeting beautiful? I first stamped it using Silver Hero Arts ink and then I heat embossed it using Wow! Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder. 

Lately, I just can't seem to finish off a card before adding some sparkle. I added lots of glitter using the Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen. Don't you just love sequins? This time I used the 4mm Lemon Drop, 4mm and 6mm Pink Blush, 4mm Tangerine and the 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh. :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
