Winnie and Walter 4th Birthday Bash Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the fun Winnie and Walter 4th Birthday Bash Celebrating Love and Friendship! There is a fabulous line-up of talent with lots of inspiration, and also some great prizes up for grabs! So make sure and hop along and visit each stop along the way! You should have arrived here from the lovely Laura Bassen - if not, feel free to head back to the Winnie and Walter Blog to start at the beginning!


I paired up one of the lovely new floral stamp sets from the latest release, with the new Catherine Pooler Inks that are now being carried in the Winnie and Walter Store! They are so fun and amazing - definitely in love with them! I used them here both for stamping the florals, and for the ink smooshing for my watercolor background:


I started off by stamping the florals from In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans using Tiara, Orange Twist, and Rockin' Red. The leaves used a combination of Lime Rickey and Grass Skirt. I die cut them all out with the Coordinating Dies. I used Fiesta Blue to do some ink smooshing on watercolor paper to form my background, then used Press and Seal to arrange the florals to where I was happy, pick them up and turn over to apply adhesive, then to press into place.


I matted that panel with Simon Says Stamp Orange Peel cardstock, and mounted on a cardbase made with Green Apple cardstock. I stamped my "beautiful" sentiment in black on white cardstock and die cut out, then die cut the same shape twice more from black cardstock,t hen layered them together. This makes it a bit more dimensional, and makes the underneath pop a bit more! I also heat embossed a bit of an additional sentiment from the set on black cardstock, and attached those with foam adhesive.


GIVEAWAY info: Since this is a 4th birthday celebration, there are FOUR gift certificates valued at $40 each up for grabs to be chosen from comments left along the hop. Comments can be left through the end of the month (February 28, 2018 by 11:59 PM CST) and will be announced on the Winnie and Walter Blog after that. Make sure and leave a comment before you leave, then head over to your next stop, Cheiron Brandon!

  33. I like how you used the grass skirt as the outline of the leaves instead of a black; that really keeps the brightness of the card. As does the bright layering cardstock in the background. I wouldn't have thought that orange and apple green would work, but it does! I'm going to have to branch out in my color schemes in the future. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
