Playdate No. 2 - Julie's take!

Hello all!

It's Julie again - back with my take on the Playdate #2 challenge.  Shay and I are really enjoying all of the projects that have been posted so far. You gals are clever and creative!

What is Playdate? It is a feature here at the winnie & walter blog where you can create a project inspired by the Playdate inspiration photo or color scheme, and enter to win a chance to be our Guest Designer for our July release! The winner will be chosen by us and will receive all of the stamps for that release!  To read more about the details, visit this post!

Here is a look at the Playdate #2 image:


Our very own Heather Pulvirentimember of The Talent of w&w, is the fabulous photographer and color inspiration for our Playdate #2.  Thanks, Heather!

Ok - First of all - I can't get enough of pink!  It is a fave of mine, if you haven't noticed. *wink*  The colors for this challenge are fabulous and with flowers as inspiration, I'm pretty much in heaven!!!  


I played with the flowers from our newly released set, The Big, the Bold and Extras and had so much fun playing with the two-step stamping.  I added some more flowers from one of our 2nd release sets, The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom.  I fussy cut them all, and then started arranging the flowers on a square of light blue, so the flowers would pop from the background. 


The frame, from another May release set - The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect, was stamped in yellow and also trimmed out by hand, and then popped up on foam tape for added dimension. I can't wait to use this frame in my scrapbooking and project life albums. Can't you just see it on your instagram photos? {Walter - get ready!!!}  The "sending you" and "love" sentiments are from You've Got Love Mail and the everyday stamp is also from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect, all stamped in gray flannel ink.  

Super Colorful! Super Sweet!  Super Fun! 

What?!  What's that you say?!  You want to come over and play???  Sure!!!  We would love that!  You still have some time - You have until June 15, 2014 at 11: 55 p.m. (central standard time) to link up.  

And, if you want to play some more, you can link up ANYTIME on our Join in to Win page.  You can enter both and enter multiple times.  Just make sure to use at least 1 winnie & walter product on your project to participate!  We can't wait to see what you create!
