I'm back for another post over at Winnie & Walter, I can't believe it's already my third week as leading lady. I'm so happy October has five Saturdays, so I still have two weeks left to show you all the fun things I came up with using the fab stamps and cutaways.
Today's theme is stripes! I fell in love with the set Scenery: Stripes and the stamps was the inspiration that made me want to do a whole post with stripes.
I started with this card, I found a good color theme on Pinterest and tried it out on a scrap piece of paper before making a card. I don't have all the pretty ink colors in other inks than distress inks, they are better for other techniques than stamping bold images, they tend to get a bit uneven. I solved this by using my Misti stamping tool and stamped three times on top of each other and got a pretty good impression in the end. I turned it into a shaker card with vellum behind the pretty diecut heart so you can sort of see the sequins but they won't distract from the pattern on the card. I was super happy with how it turned out. Stripes are so fun and easy to customise in different colors for different looks.
In the Winnie & Walter blog I have two more striped cards to show you so hop on over there if you want to see them.
I have been given a gift card to giveaway for one of my commenters (a coupon code which does not include shipping & handling). So if you leave a comment on any of my Leading Lady posts here during the month you will have a chance to win it. You can use it in the Winnie & Walter shop and get something you love.
See you again next Saturday, I have some great cards ready to show you so I hope you will come back for that! The theme for next week is patterned papers.
