Hi all!! Today I want to share with you my cards for Winnie & Walter August Leading Lady Take 5!
This is my last post as August Leading Lady. I'm so grateful that Winnie & Walter picked me and I have so much fun playing with their products. Thank you so much!!
And the theme today is all about DIY Background. You can make it with many different techique. This time I'm playing with stamps and dies.

So here is my first card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
The Big, the Bold and Extras for the images and "smile girl" sentiment
In a Word : Hugs Cutaway for the background and hugs die cut

To make the background, first I'm using Dye Ink and blending tool and then die cut the Hugs cutaway with Spellbinders Enlarged Embossing Pads.
I stamp the flowers and leaves with black ink and die cut it. I die cut hugs sentiment on black card stock and a white foam, then glue it together. The "smile girl" sentiment is from white embossing powder on pink card stock.

 And here is my second card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
My Precious for the background and sentiment

I stamp the diamond with grey ink and coloring with copic, then I add a vellum. The sentiment is from white embossing powder. I add twine and sequins for the finishing touch.

And here is my last card :

Winnie & Walter Supply that I'm using:
The Party for the sentiment

First I'm using masking technique and stamp the flowers and leaves using Dye Ink and add some gradation using Dye Ink and blending tool. The sentiment is from gold embossing powder and I tied the tag using green twine.

And here is the fun part!
