You Are Wonderful (Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week Ft. Essentials by Ellen)

Hey, friends! Have you heard the news? Winnie & Walter have organized another Share the Love Week filled with challenges and giveaways! For this edition, we are featuring Essentials by Ellen products. Today I am participating in the Transparent Challenge. You can enter this challenge by clicking HERE. Lots of prizes are up for grabs! You can read more about that at the bottom of this blog post.

In today’s video, I am creating a colorful card with the LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set along with the Kindness with Evelin T Designs stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

I started out by creating the focal point of my card. I die cut a tag with the Katharine Cutaways from Winnie & Walter. After stamping and masking my images from the LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set from Winnie & Walter, I colored them with Copic markers.

I die cut it once out of glitter paper and then I die cut it once more out of some white Fun Foam. I finished off the sentiment by stamping “you are” with the Totally Awesome set from Essentials by Ellen.

Since this is the Transparant challenge, I obviously needed to add something transparent. I grabbed a piece of vellum and adhered it to a standard size notecard. I also adhered a strip of patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Finally, I felt like the card was missing something so I used that little reinforcement die with some washi tape to add more interest to the tag.
