{Winnie & Walter} February Leading Lady: Take 4 + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! It's hard to believe that this is my final week as Winnie & Walter's Leading Lady! Every Saturday, I shared projects with a weekly theme. Today's theme is gift wrap and I made a set of cards with a tag and matching pillow box in the art deco style!

For the background of the card set, I used pearlescent embossing paste with the Do You See What I See? stencil. I added splatter using a mixture of Black Soot distress ink and water on a Ranger craft sheet.

The stone grey panels were die cut using Noelle Essentials and the white hearts are from the Flawless Heart set, just released last night! The sentiment is In a Word: Thanks.

I used the exact same supplies for the pillow box. Since the base of the cards was cut from linen cardstock, so was the pillow box itself. I wrapped the Noelle Essentials die around the pillow box and placed the Flawless Heart on top. Since the centre of the heart was white on white, unlike the cards themselves, I added a stone grey centre before adding the In a Word: Thanks sentiment.

Both the pillow box and clear box were wrapped with May Arts white silk ribbon. The tag was created using Katharine Essentials. I dry embossed it with the Flawless Heart die and then stamped a small sentiment from Happiest of Holidays on a stone grey heart from the centre of the aforementioned die.

I've truly enjoyed my month as Leading Lady this month and I cannot thank Shay enough for having me and for putting up with my wonky deadlines due to construction at my house and a sick little boy these last two weeks. I hope you have enjoyed my projects!


Winnie & Walter has given me a $30 gift card to share with my readers! All you need to do is comment on all four of my Leading Lady posts this month and you'll be entered to win. You have until 11:59 p.m. on March 3rd to enter. I will announce my winner on Friday, March 4, 2016 so be sure to check back here to see if you're the lucky winner. Good luck! :)

{Winnie & Walter} February 2016 Release Premiere: Day 4

It's Day 4 of Winnie & Walter's February Release and all products will be available for purchase tonight! Today is Winnie & Walter's premiere of So Tweet with Evelin T Designs, Flawless Diamond Cutaways, Flawless Heart Cutaways, Winnie's Sparkly Shaker Selection and Walter's Sparkly Shaker Selection. I used the first two products together on my card with Winnie's custom sequin mix and you can see the full reveal of these products on the Winnie & Walter blog.

I used the solid background die from Flawless Heart Cutaways to create the angled panels for the So Tweet sentiment and birds, which were all watercoloured with Gansai paints. The main background was die cut from Katharine Essentials and splattered with mists. To embellish, I added sequins from Winnie's Sparkly Shaker Selection. The teeny, tiny stars are the cutest!
