WCMD 2014 | Unexpected Stamping with Kelly

WCMDblogbanner2014


Happy World Card Making Day!

To celebrate, some of us on the Winnie & Walter team are heading up challenges throughout the day. Yes, there are prizes involved! No, you do not need to use W&W products. Are you ready?!?
My challenge for you:
Use one stamp on your card in an unexpected way. 
 Use a sentiment for a background, an image for a sentiment, parts of a stamp to cover your card base, the sky's the limit! 

 Here are two cards to get you thinking...


and they both use a NEW product line from Winnie & Walter that hasn't been released yet ... Creative Screenings!! So excited about these : )


Instead of using the solid circle "love you" stamp from The Write Stuff Love Story as an accent, I've used it to fill in the diagonal stripes on the right. I like that it serves to add a few different colors, and also sends a secondary message if you look hard enough to read the text. I shifted the striped screening down and added some blue and gold glimmer mist on the right. Then I flipped the screening over to use the residual glimmer mist, making diagonal, sketchy stripes on the left. "Hooray" is from This Awesome House.


 This card uses exactly the same idea ... use an image to fill in a masked area. The script bird stamp from You've Got Love Mail is stamped in hot pink and pink. The larger diagonal screening is shifted down, sprayed with ink, and flipped to the left to make more sketchy stripes. "Happy thoughts" is from This Awesome House.

If you'd like to try this challenge, and be entered in for some prizes, head over to the Winnie & Walter blog to link up your project. I'd LOVE to see your ideas! Also, we want to see what you're doing on World Card Making Day! Take a photo of you and/or others and link it up to the party at W&W for another round of prizes.

Thanks for looking!


Prize: A seat in the upcoming card class with Online Card Classes (winner will be added to class once registration is opened)!

Big thanks to Jennifer McGuire and Online Card Classes for generously donating this prize!

  6. Something I need to do more of. Thank you for helping me think outside-of-the-box. I have so many stamps, I should be able to use them for more than one idea at a time. Thanks for the inspiration to try new things, with some older stamps. Great challenge, Kelly!
