Hello Winnie and Walter Fans! Laina Lamb back here again today to share some quick and easy Autumn Cards.

My cards all featured the new A Tree for All Seasons set. What I love most about this set is the versatility of the images. There are so many different ways to use the tree and leaves stamps. After creating my original cards for the hop, I had so many extra pieces, I was able to use them all for more cards.


Using several different dies, I created my base layers for stamping. To create the green circle background, I blended several dye inks with a blending tool directly to the circle stamp. I also masked that area and added some shimmer mist for extra sparkle.


My next card switches up the same method as above with colored card stock rather than white. I wanted to experiment with vellum and added a layer to my window. I love how the tree is now shaded and has a softer look with the bold contrast of the card stock.


Now that I had given my tree stamps enough love, I was ready to play with some of the leaves.


I decided to go mod and work with the line work of the leaves. My base panel was embossed with a folder and added to a card base. Washi tape strips and stamped sentiment flag were added at an angle.

Using my Silhouette Cutter and the digital version of the set I created a white .06” offset base to stamp the leaf shapes on to. A simple chipboard button with twine was added to finish the card. 


Using the same method as above, I stamped more leaves and a banner to thread across this scalloped card. To accent I added several gold sequins.



For my last card, I stamped the sentiment directly to the base panel and added my leaves with pop dots. A wood button tied with twine was my finishing touch.


Thank you so much to Shay and Julie for having me as their guest this month! I am a huge fan of Winnie and Walter and cannot wait to see what their future releases bring.
