w&w 4th Birthday Bash | Special Guest Star Isha Gupta


Today's special guest star, Isha Gupta, is a long-time friend of Winnie & Walter as she was our November 2015 Leading Lady and an artist I have long admired for being able to create gorgeously colored and layered projects!  She's also full of warmth and a lovely lady.  Please give her a warm w&w welcome!

Hello Winnie &Walter fans! Isha here from NewIdeas. I am so thrilled and honored to be here guesting for Winnie & Walter’s 4th Birthday Bash!!

Today, I have two projects for you using a mix of new and old supplies and to share how versatile these products are. 

My first project is a card. I used "In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans" and the coordinating dies. I also used the Essentials: Audrey Cutaways along with the In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaways.


I really love the sketchy florals and the beautiful font in this set and used watercolors to color the images so they look organic. 

I stamped and embossed the word "Beautiful" onto a piece of vellum. The coordinating dies made it so easy to die-cut everything perfectly.

For my next project, I used my new love for memory keeping and created a Traveler's notebook spread. I used the In a Word: Hugs and Kisses with Angelica Suarez Cutaway as my Title as it's perfect for this photo. My younger daughter always gives a tons of hugs and kisses to us all :)


To start with I die-cut the border using the Georgette Border Cutaways, I really love the dotted detail in that. I then die-cut the spiral flower from the Dotty About You With Lydia Evans Cutaways and stuck it behind the photo. To ground my title, I used the bubble image from Sketchy Thoughts stamp set and coordinating dies. 

For the florals, I used the "In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans" and the coordinating dies.


For the right side, I first sponged various inks using the Scenery: Spotty Creative Screenings. I then stamped the black and white stripe to ground the image using the Scenery: Stripes 2 stamp set. 


Do you see the turquoise diecut above the stamped line. I used the rest of the scrap from the die-cut border using the Georgette Border Cutaways. That is a good way to use your scraps lol. Finally I created the floral collage and added some Nuvo Jewel drops as accents.

Thanks so much to Shay and Winnie & Walter for inviting me to join them in their birthday festivities this month and here's to many, many more birthday bashes to come!! :) Have a wonderful day!!
