Winnie and Walter Leading Lady and Giveaway

Good morning! I'm SUPER excited to be kicking off something fun for me this month! Several weeks ago I got an email from Shay at Winnie and Walter inviting me to be their guest "Leading Lady" for the month of August! I am super excited to be sharing a project (or two or three!) over on the Winnie and Walter Blog every Saturday for the month of August with my Winnie and Walter stamps. I also get to give away a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter drawn from comments left here on my blog throughout the month!

I decided to kick off the month by combining Bubble Talk with some simple shapes cut with my Silhouette Cameo! I'm also linking this up with the Moxie Fab World "Clicking Cameras" Challenge.


I also used the same paper pad for all three cards - My Mind's Eye Now and Then - with the exception of the die cut shapes which were cut with paper from Basic Grey's Fresh Cut paper pad. This first card also features some gold enamel stars from Eyelet Outlet.


I just love this funny owl on the second card! I added a frame from some Freckled Fawn embellishments that I had in my stash, as well as some wiggly eyes.


I stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts Dark Quartz Shadow ink, as well as black ink - like how the combination of colors help the sentiment pop!


And lastly - this hipster cat! I thought it was so cute!


 I attached all the die cuts for each card, as well as the stamped speech bubbles with foam adhesive for fun dimension, and inked the edges of the speech bubbles with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink - love the way this softens up white cardstock and helps it blend in with the softer colors. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget you have a chance throughout the month to win a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter just for leaving a comment! 

Thanks so much Shay and Julie for giving me this fun opportunity! Have a wonderful day everyone!
