We kick off posts the next week and half from special guest stars with the wonderfully talented and kind, Amy Kolling!  I have had the real honor and pleasure of spending time with Amy and she is such a warm, caring and giving person.  I am so delighted to have Amy taking over the w&w blog today.  Please give Amy a big w&w welcome!

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be posting here today on the blog as a special guest star for Winnie & Walter during their 4th Birthday Bash!

I have a TWO cards to share where I incorporated some of the Birthday Bash challenges that are going on this month.

My first card uses the “Shaker Challenge”.  I started by creating my own plaid background using the Scenery: V for cheVron.  This was made easy by using my standard Misti tool.  Once my background was stamped, I diecut a standard circle from the middle for my shaker.  

For the focal point, I used the Happy Birthday to You stamps and coordinating Happy Birthday to You Cutaways.  The various elements were added with foam adhesive.  I layered the birthday cake over the shaker center and added sequins.

My second card goes clean and simple and uses the “Four Challenge”.  I used the Scenery: Triangled Creative Screening and ink blended in an ombré fashion.  With this panel, I die cut the In a Word: Hi Cutaway.  Also using this Hi Cutaway, I die cut 3 layers of black cardstock.  Layering them all together, I added them back in the negative space with foam adhesive.
