Thanks so much for all your visits and lovely comments during Winnie & Walter‘s April/May Release … you’ve been wonderful! Today sees the finale … and tonight all the gorgeous new goodies you’ve been seeing will be available … so you might want to get that wish list planned!! I’ve had such a brilliant time playing with everything … and still have heaps of ideas for using them all. A huge thank you to Shay and Julie for inviting me to guest design with them and the DT … it’s been an honour and a delight to work with you! Now, just wait till you see what we have in store for you today … two sets featuring geometric faceted shapes, including sentiments with a beautiful font (My Precious and True), Mini Scenery: Multifaceted, a little Sparkle set and a Cutaway (die) … Cover Model: Multifaceted. I’ve four cards to show you …
This is Mini Scenery: Multifaceted … isn’t it gorgeous? I embossed it with Liquid Platinum EP, trimmed it out and coloured it with Distress Inks … with a topping of Perfect Pearls to give it some shimmer. It’s layered onto a black mat and has a vellum sentiment banner (from the Sparkle set), so the panel is still visible underneath. I scattered some silvery seed beads onto it and adhered them where they fell (so random!) and popped the whole panel up on foam tape on the card base.
Here’s the Cover Model:Multifaceted … I love it! I sponged Distress Inks onto it to create an ombré look and double heat embossed the whole thing using clear shimmer EP. The sentiment (a mixture of True and Precious), was stamped in Versafine onto a slip of vellum and heat embossed with the same EP. I fixed the ends of the vellum to the back of the Cover Model and adhered the finished panel to the base card. This card could be good for a guy or girl … depending on where it goes, I may add some bling! I white embossed the large diamond (from Precious), trimmed it out and added copious layers of Wink of Stella … it’s so hard to capture on a photo … but IRL it’s all shimmery and sparkly, as a diamond should be! The sentiment (a mixture of Precious and Sparkle sets) was embossed onto a grey panel, which was outlined in white and mounted onto a white mat. The shimmery diamond was popped up above the sentiment and the whole thing was popped up on foam dots on the base. Those of you who are regular visitors here may just be a bit taken aback, given that this card base is grey and not white … I was! However, I wanted the diamond to really shine and take centre stage, so went for the monochrome look!
My final card … here, I gold embossed the star (from True), trimmed it out and watercoloured it with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, creating different shades by adding more or less water to each facet. The sentiment (a mixture of True and Precious) was gold embossed onto a white panel, I did a little splattering with the ink that was left on my mat (me, splattering?!), wound a gold thread nest, popped the star up on foam dots over it and attached the panel flat to the card base.
So, it’s the end of my time as Guest Designer with Winnie & Walter … I’ve loved it … and do hope you’ve enjoyed the week here. I’ll be delighted if you’ve found some inspiration among my projects … and/or among those of the DT and other GDs. Don’t forget, you still have chance to win giveaways … there’s the Big Giveaway and there’s also a giveaway for each of the four Premiere days … all the details are at the Winnie & Walter blog. You can also check out the final day’s inspiration from the Design Team and the other Guest Designers while you’re there!
Thanks so much for your company, encouragement and support this week … as ever, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
