Leading Lady at Winnie & Walter week 3 + Giveaway

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.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
