For Day 6 of the Brutus Monroe + Winnie & Walter Collaboration CLICK HERE.
As August fades away we sadly must bid au revoir to our awesome August Leading Lady Tracey McNeely . The last four weeks with Tracey have been a bounty of delightful projects featuring a slew of joyous, amazing cards full of stupendous skill and design. Tracey has showcased her deft talent and acute creativity week after week. I feel so very fortunate Tracey shared her talents with us this month and made this month something special.

For my final week I am creating three cards using one stamp set. I liked this set before, but now that I have worked with the layered stamps I am totally in love with the In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans stamp set. I used the layering guide that you can find in the Storyboard for this set on the Winnie & Walter blog HERE. The guide made lining up the layers for these images foolproof.
I chose three colours schemes and I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves with the co-ordinating Cutaways. I also die cut both sizes of the 'beautiful' sentiment so that I could chose as I arranged my cards. Although I am using the same stamped florals for each card I wanted my designs to be distinctively different.
Once I had all the pieces stamped and die cut I lightly sponged backgrounds on my card bases with the Scenery: Triangled Creative Screenings. I adhered the flowers to each card in a different postition and arrangement adding foam tape to the main flower for dimension. On the completed cards I added a few sequins for balance and filled each sequin with some silver Stickles for added sparkle!
