Hello Summer Card

Hello and Welcome!

I am having so much fun playing with Winnie & Walter products! I was really inspired by Lydia's card on Day 3 of Winnie & Walter's Share the Love challenge. I was also inspired by Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge of using a resist. Here is what I came up with:

I loved the coral, leaf, birdie background of Lydia's example card. I don't have the leaf Cutaway yet, but I do have the W&W "Leaf Effects" Creative Screen. So I used tiny flower stamps with Versamark and Stampendous white embossing powder, and then taped W&W's stencil on top and misted Heidi Swapp's peach & coral Color Shine. I then die-cut the panel with Simon Says Stamp's "Bundle Of Stitched Shapes" to get the nice stitched border.

Next, I stamped the bird and branch from Winnie & Walter's "Happiest of Holidays" stamp set, and colored them with Zig Clean Color markers on watercolor paper. The sentiment is from W&W's "The Big, The Bold and The Fun" set. The double scalloped edge is a punch by Martha Stewart. The pattern paper is by Graphic 45. I finished this card off with some silver thread. This card is based on the sketch at Mojo Monday.

This card is entered in:


  1. Very creative take on Lydia's card, yours is just as lovely. Great use of embossing too.

  2. Beautiful card! Your coral leaf background is beautiful for your little blue bird! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp for the Monday challenge!
