February Leading Lady Emily Leiphart | Take Three


Our February Leading Lady, Emily Leiphart is back for her triumphant third performance!  If you missed her smashing debut you must see it...CLICK HERE or her sensational second performance taking on the positive and negative CLICK HERE.   Today Emily shows her mastery by using the same products to create two cards with two different and awesome looks.

Without further ado, Emily....

Hello, hello! It's Emily here and I'm back with my third Leading Lady post!! Every Saturday this month, I'll be sharing projects with a weekly theme. Today's theme is monochromatic versus colourful. Both cards use the exact same products!


The monochromatic card features five Winnie & Walter dies and one stamp set in shades of white, greys and black. Across the middle of the Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die cut, I dry embossed with the Lulu Fringe Cutaway.


The In a Word: Hello die was sponged with three distress inks, splattered with water and misted with shine spray, then stamped with the dots from the Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set. The In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaways wreath was layered with vellum and linen white cardstock.


This colourful version features the same six products as the monochromatic version, just in different formulations. Here, the Lulu Fringe Cutaway is used in its originally intended format on the edges of the Essentials: Katharine Cutaways frames.


In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaways was dry embossed as well as used as accents on the ends of the sentiment that uses In a Word: Hello Cutaway, as well as The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways. The dots from Scenery: Big Bang Confetti were heat embossed with silver glitter embossing powder.


GIVEAWAY
