Leading Lady Jennifer Ingle | Take One


For World Card Making Day we have the pleasure and honor of introducing our October Leading Lady, Jennifer Ingle!  She's a truly magnificent person and crafter and we are so delighted to have her dazzle us Saturdays in October!  Let's see what Jennifer has crafted up for her debut as Leading Lady...

Hello, Winnie & Walter friends! To say I was excited when Shay and Julie asked me to be the Leading Lady is surely an understatement. I am absolutely THRILLED to be here with you!
I love this dress!!! #justme #sometimesifeelcute #selfie #ootd #nofilter
My name is Jennifer Ingle, known around the interwebs as Jingle. My blog is Just Jingle and I love sharing my crafty creations over there. I have been paper crafting since my college years, but the truth of it is, I have crafted my entire life. When I was little I would make fascinating creations from construction paper and sell them at my 'craft fair table' ... in my living room... to my parents. I made a ridiculous amount of money on those fairs, considering the number of shoppers. HA! For my first week I wanted to have some fun with some of my FAVORITE Winnie & Walter stamps, so I decided on WORD UP! theme for this week. Yup. It's all about the words for this one, folks!
Happy Hello
For my first card, I used words as my absolute focal point. This one is ALL about the words. I stamped Happy from The Big, The Bold, and The Happy three times in different colors and then added the Hello, taking it off to the other edge to draw the eye to it. I love how words are the star of the show for this fun card!
Thankful for You
Another great thing about the word stamps from Winnie & Walter is that you can totally use them in the background, as well. For this fall card I stamped the word 'autumn' in the background repeatedly in a very pale ink to add visual interest and texture to the design. I then stamped my tree and the sentiment right on top! I love how the background adds so much to this card.
Black and White Thanks
For my final card, I actually didn't use any stamps at all?! WHAT?! I know, right? I cut the 'thanks' using the The Big, The Bold, and You cut files and used the negative as a stencil to trace my sentiment onto the card. I then used one of the BRAND NEW stencils from Winnie & Walter (available later this month) to add some bold, black embossing paste stripes across my card panel. I am LOVING these stencils!!! This card shows how words can be used in, perhaps the most traditional method, as a fabulous, standout sentiment! And there you go, my friends! I hope you have enjoyed our little Word Play today! Go grab some of your The Big, The Bold stamp sets and make some magic happen!!!
