w&w 3rd Birthday Bash | Special Guest Star Amy Tsuruta Take Two

Our dear, sweet and talented friend, Amy Tsuruta, is back for her second appearance to celebrate our 3rd Birthday Bash.  If you missed her fabulous first post please CLICK HERE.  

As always it is a pleasure to have Amy here on the w&w blog!  

Hello!  I'm so thrilled to be back again on the Winnie & Walter blog!  I have several projects to share with you so let's get started!

First up is a card that was inspired by a package of washi that I own.  I'm always on the hunt for great color combo's, what do you think?

I started off with the Scenery:  Stripes 2 and then layered the surprise sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Baby set.  The sweet has been heat embossed in white on black cardstock and is from the same set.

Coming soon to the Winnie & Walter shop, is the From the Bottom of My Heart stamp.  It was originally released as a Free with Purchase through February 17th but will be re-released in 2017!  I love the sentiment and the solid space in the design, perfect to show off the beauty of Delicata Gold ink:

A clean and simple card but check out that shimmer!  The gold detail strip on the left is washi that I have secured on with a strip of adhesive.  I finished off the card with a strip of black, the right amount of boldness to the design.

For those of you that follow me know how much I adore coffee and I couldn't go without at least designing one coffee card:

I'm also playing along with the Ink Smooshing Challenge with Heather H.  The coffee cup is me freestyle cutting, retro style with paper and scissors.  The coffee sleeve has been embellished with Sketchy Thoughts.  The ink smooshing was perfect for my design, I combined Mowed Lawn + Salty Ocean Distress Inks.

The cup and the sentiment bubble are on foam dimensionals.

That's it for me.  A big shout out to Shay for inviting me to the party, I had so much fun!



  1. Thanks so much for all the fun Shay💚

  2. From the stunning simplicity of the first, to the gold glamour of the second, to the coffee charm of the third, you've created a trio of delight! Inspired and inspiring!

  3. Love those colors and your design in that first card, Amy. Those soft pinks and aquas look so pretty with those black sentiments. And that gold heart...beautifully CAS with just a touch of that "hey, look at me" feeling! You already know I love your coffee card; it's fabulous! Fantastic cards! Bev

  4. Wait, you cut out your own coffee cup?! That is so awesome, Amy!!! Great use of sketchy thoughts on the sleeve. So smart to adhere your washi...I get so annoyed when it comes up.
