June Leading Lady Crystal Thompson | Take Four

The last four weeks with Crystal have been full of amazing inspiration, excellent tips and awesome cards. Crystal is such a delight!  I feel so very blessed Crystal shared her talents with us this month!

If you missed her smashing debut you must see it...CLICK HERE or her bright, fresh and sensational second performance CLICK HERE or her graphic and modern triumphant third performance CLICK HERE!

Lucky for us all we have her final command performance today and she will be joining us next week for our June 2017 Release (be sure to join us beginning Monday, June 26th). 


Hello crafty friends, Crystal here with my last post as Winnie & Walter's June Leading Lady. As my last performance I have a very bright card using the fabulous new Cutaways released this Spring.

To make this card, I started with the bright green patterned paper. Next, I trimmed the solid green card stock and hand cut the end pieces to resemble a ribbon. I then added a white paper doily cut in half.  To layer on top, I die cut the white card stock using Essentials: Lana Cutaway. 

Using a matching green ink, I stamped the BE and NIQUE from Typecast: Cary Letters. The YOU is stamped in Typecast: Cary Letters and die cut with Typecast: Cary Letters Cutaways, then adhered to the white die cut with foam adhesive to give the card dimension. Once that was all glued down, I added two ribbons of hot pink paper stamped with Scenery: Stripes 2 in a darker pink, then trimmed down. To finish off, the YOU is covered in Glossy Accents and added a few matching sequins. 

This card ended up being very bright and happy. I have had a great time spending my Saturday's here on the Winnie & Walter Blog. Don't forget to comment on my blog post for a chance to win the $30 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter store. Winner will be announced on my blog, Monday June 26th at 10am PST. 

Have a bright and fabulous week! Crystal

Congrats Graduate with Kelly

Hi Folks! One of my favorite Middle Schoolers just graduated this year and I couldn't be more proud. She's had enormous challenges, yet she, helped by her very supportive family, pushes herself to succeed every single day. Her favorite color is orange, so I thought it would be great to have some orange gummy bears from Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs congratulating her on her graduation.

Since we have four members in our family, I created a crowd of four by stamping the darkest bear in the middle, masking him off, and then stamping the remaining bears. The bears are watercolored in different shades of orange. I liked using the "we love you" sentiment from Sentimental: Love because it further indicates that the bears represent our specific family. The rest of the sentiment is from the classic The Big, the Bold and You set.

Here's a peek at the inside of the card. If I'm not lining the entire inside of the card with patterned paper, I usually pick 3-4 scraps of paper from my drawer and layer them towards the bottom.

And here's the graduate reading her card with her mom. Love those smiles! They are the sweetest people ever!

I get more use out of this bear from Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs than I ever anticipated. He's not just for little kids; I've used him as the focal point for birthday, graduation, friendship, and even my Father's Day cards this year!

Thanks for looking!

June Leading Lady Crystal Thompson | Take Three

Our June Leading Lady, Crystal Thompson is back for her triumphant third performance!  If you missed her smashing debut you must see it...CLICK HERE or her bright, fresh and sensational second performance CLICK HERE.   Today she brings you a graphic and modern card with stamping and die cutting!

Without further ado, Crystal....


Happy Saturday crafty friends! Today I am here with my 3rd project combining stamping and die cutting. 

 This card is made using two of Winnie & Walter Sets. Sketchy Thoughts Stamps and Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways along with  In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya First, I stamped the leaves from Lola's Bouquet  in three different shades of gray onto the white card base. (Tip: Allow drying between stamping to avoid getting your fingers inky and staining the card... as I did) 

Next, I stamped the speech bubble from Sketchy Thoughts using the middle shade of gray. Using white embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment from Sketchy Thoughts and once that was dried I die cut using Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways

Before placing my speech bubble, I added a few strips of washi tape, then with 3D foam adhesive I placed my sentiment.  Giveaway: Comment on my corresponding Winnie & Walter post on my blog for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate. There will be 4 posts for the month of June, giving you 4 entries to win.

That is all for this Saturday. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the sunshine!

Hello with Lydia

Hi there everyone! Lydia here with you today and I'm sharing with you a card that features this month's Re-Run set- Scenery: Stripes. If you had your eye on this set now is the time to get it as for this month only it's marked down in price. So on to my card...


I started by stamping the thickest of the stripes from Scenery: Stripes all over my card blank in a light grey ink. I love the look this gives, even though it's subtle it really does add to the card.


I then die cut In A Word: Hello Cutaway 4 times from white card and once from this pretty patterned paper from Pinkfresh. I then layered these all up adding the patterned one on the top. I added this into place in the centre of my card black before covering with A Wink Of Stella and Glossy Accents for shine.


To embellish I added die-cut elements (again from Pinkfresh) and a few blue Nuvo droplets.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I hope this inspired you to try out subtle stripes in your backgrounds. See you again soon.

Hugs, Lydia x

Congrats with Vanessa

Hi everybody! Vanessa here with an airy flower card. I love to combine blues, whites, pinks and purples in my garden beds and everything is about to burst open every minute. So I thought a bouquet of flowers using my favorite colors would look good on a card, too!

I combined a lot of stamps and dies for today's card. Here is what I came up with:

I started with a panel of white cardstock that I had trimmed slightly smaller than my card base. For more texture, I embossed the panel with Cover Model: The Leaf Effect Cutaway and adhered it to the card. Now I die-cut the tag from Essentials: Noelle Cutaways from vellum and cardstock, layered them and adhered them with foam tape. I stamped and die-cut the various flowers and leaves from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica SuarezIn Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya and In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers and arranged them onto the tag.

Now I die-cut In a Word: Congrats Cutaway from white cardstock and adhered it with foam tape. Finally, I added sequins.

I hope you like my little flower arrangement! Thank you for stopping by today!!
