Leading Lady Heather Hoffman | Take Two


Heather Hoffman walks onto the stage for her second act as Leading Lady.  Please give her a very warm reception as she joins with some fabulous projects again today!  To see her first take please CLICK HERE.

Good Saturday morning! Heather here again, and I'm excited to be back again this morning to share some more fun projects with my Winnie and Walter stamps!  Today I thought I would show an easy way to lay out some sentiment stamps and make both a feminine version, and masculine version at the same time! I love making two slightly different cards at the same time - you put out about the same amount of time and effort, but come away with two unique cards! Here is the feminine version:

For these cards I put together my sentiments from the new set, The Big, the Bold, and the Blessings. For this first card, I stamped and heat embossed on vellum with Zing Gold Glitter embossing powder - LOVE the sparkle and shine! I tore the edges, then wrapped it around my wood grain pattern paper from Crate Paper. Added some background scallops cut with a Lil' Inker's border die, a few gold sequins, a bit of jute twine, and some lovely floral pattern paper, also from Crate Paper (that I have to admit I have been hoarding a little because I love it so much!)

Now, the masculine version:

For this one, I used the exact same sentiment layout, since I still had it on my clear block - only I embossed on some soft pattern paper from My Mind's Eye using Ranger Platinum embossing powder - a perfect silvery gold color - so fun! Layered some more pattern paper behind, and finished off with a couple of enamel dots.

Feel free to swing by my blog, Houses Built of Cards for more pictures and details on each of these cards - as well as a chance throughout the month to win a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter just for leaving a comment! Thanks so much Shay and Julie for giving me this fun opportunity!
