September Leading Lady Lindsay Amrhein | Take One

Lindsay-Amrhein_sept2015


Today we are thrilled to introduce our September Leading Lady, Lindsay Amrhein.   Lindsay's style is happy, bright, colorful, graphic and clean with a beautiful balance and flair.  Lindsay is a wife and mother from the Buckeye State and she's up for all sorts of papercrafting challenges as evidenced by being on the challenge design teams of Avery Elle, Taylored Expressions and Runway Inspired Challenge.   

Over the next few Saturdays in September will be leading us on a journey of her own design and imagining.  Make sure to visit her blog, Note To Self, to see more from her and for a chance to win a giveaway! 

Give Lindsay a big round of applause to welcome her as she steps onto the stage for her first performance as our September Leading Lady!    

Hello! I am so excited to be joining Winnie & Walter this month, as their Leading Lady! The current release of products is truly fabulous, and I had a blast creating with them! For my post today, I am focusing on the use of one product, the Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway die, and two fun ways to use it. Dies are an investment, and getting as many looks from them is a great way to stretch your dollar.

For my first card, I used the die to cut out a rainbow of cardstocks. When I had all of those pieces separated, I took the negative, and placed it onto my cardbase using a light application of adhesive. I then began placing the colorful pieces back into the slots using rainbow order. 


After adhering the pieces, I removed the negative portion, leaving just the colorful pieces behind. From there I moved on to the sentiment. Using The Big, The Bold, and Friends, I white heat embossed my sentiment onto black cardstock, and trimmed it out, mounting to the card front with foam tape.


I finished off this bright card with a few black pearls to accent the sentiment, and add a bit of contrast. My next card, featured the negative portion of the die. I began by die cutting, using white cardstock, multiple times, and gluing the layers together.


On the card base, I used Distress Inks to create a gradient blend to go underneath my die. Once the ink blending was complete, I added a bit of black thread, along with a white heat embossed sentiment from the mini set, Sparkle, on black cardstock. I trimmed it down, and adhered it over the thread.


To complete the card, I added a sprinkling of Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, which is available in the Winnie & Walter store! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired to try something new with your dies today! See you next week!
