w&w Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Special Guest Star Amy Tsuruta

200specialgueststaramy

Our next Special Guest Star, Amy Tsuruta, not only is amazingly gifted at crafting, but is honestly one of the sweetest and amazing people I have had the pleasure and honor to encounter.  Our crafting community is brighter because she's a vital part of it.  I am always in awe of how many others she supports with her lovely comments on their blogs, posts and the like.  When does this gal sleep?  Or perhaps she is just supercharged by her beloved coffee!  Whatever it is she never disappoints and I know you will love her cards today!

Hello! It's Amy here and I'm thrilled to be guesting for Winnie & Walter's 2nd Birthday Bash!

Winnie and Walter 2nd birthday bash by Amy TsurutaI was thoroughly inspired by Taheerah's inspiration photo and ended up designing 2 cards. My first one, thanks, was inspired by all the patterns and colors in the photo. I wanted to incorporate some pink into the card and did the ink smooshing technique.

My second card, home was the designed because I realized that the thanks card had no stamping. I loved using the Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs for a non-holiday card. It was a way for me to also use the, In a Word: Home Cutaway. How can anyone resist gold glitter?! I masked off the sentiment to incorporate the word home.
