Hey everyone! Today I am here with a video showing you how to create a fast and colorful birthday card with new Winnie & Walter products. This video is also part of a video hop, hosted by Emily Leiphart, in honor to celebrate a milestone. More on that video hop later in this blog post…
For today’s bright and cheerful card, I used new stamps and sequins from Winnie & Walter.
First, I stamped a quick and easy background using a new stamp set from Winnie & Walter called The Party. This stamp set is filled with so many tiny images that are perfect to use to create your own background. I used different Hero Arts inks to stamp these images. This time I decided to go for bright colors since this is a special occasion! 😉
Next, I created a frame because I wanted to make another sequin share. First I used a smaller rectangle die cut from the Large Stitched Rectangles die cut set from Lawn Fawn. Then, I used a larger frame from the Stitched Duo 2 die cut set from Pretty Pink Posh. I didn’t do actually die cutting using that die. Instead I did some embossing! It is an easy and quick technique. Here’s the recipe:
MULTI PURPOSE PLATFORM (NO TABS SHOWING) + GLASS PLATE PLATE + A MOUSE PAD OR PIECE OF RUBBER + YOUR PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE DIE CUT ON + GLASS PLATE.
If you run it trough your Big Shot machine like so, you will end up with embossed lines!
After I created the frame, I adhered a piece of acetate to create a shiny little box. Next, I used Fun Foam to create dimension. Before filling up the shaker, I stamped a cute scene using the Sugar Rush stamp set from Winnie & Walter along with the Sparkle stamp set (this is a free with purchase stamp set. Please check my video description of this video for details about that set.).
I adhered the piece of Fun Foam using Multi Medium Matte. This is a very strong adhesive which is perfect to adhere the foam. This time I filled up the shaker using an exclusive sequin mix for Winnie & Walter created by Pretty Pink Posh. These colors are absolutely lovely! 🙂
As I mentioned before, this video is part of a video hop hosted by my friend Emily Leiphart. She is celebrating 100 videos and 2500 subscribers! I served with Emily on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge DT and we have become friends ever since. Emily’s cards are always bright and playful. If you haven’t checked out her blog or YouTube channel yet, then you should definitely do that now! You will be very inspired by her work.
I am so happy to be part of this great video hop. Your next stop is the extremely talented Taheerah Atchia.
