Winnie & Walter Leading Lady – May 2015 – Take 3

Winnie & Walter Leading LadyThanks for all your visits and lovely comments on my Debut and Take 2 performances at Winnie & Walter … I’m thrilled to be back today to show you some more ways of bringing their wonderful Cutaways and stamps to life!  Winnie & Walter‘s latest release (April/May) featured their first Cover Model … Multifaceted Cutaway … a gorgeous, graphic, geometric design that I fell in love with!  So, this week, I’m doing a ‘One Cutaway, Three Ways’ feature!

First on stage, graphic colour blocks …

W&W Leading Lady Week 3 Multifaceted 1The background colour blocks are paint chips, sliced into rectangles, arranged in an ombré-ish fashion and adhered flat to the base card.  I cut Multifaceted twice and layered them onto the colour blocks … the first one way up, the second the opposite way, so that all those yummy graphic lines criss crossed over one another.  The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold & The Happy, embossed in white on a hand cut black banner, and popped up on foam dots.  I went with blocks and yellows/oranges … but a change of background colours and/or shapes would give a completely different look … how about broad stamped stripes in cool blues, a sponged soft pink ombré, or perhaps crisp, bold black and white with luscious gold overlays … oh the possibilties!

Here’s something a little more delicate … white on white with a touch of colour …

W&W Leading Lady Week 3 Multifaceted 2See the shine and dimension on this Multifaceted Cutaway?  After it was cut, I coated it in Versamark and heat embossed it in white … twice … to give it that raised look.  It was adhered to the base card just at the intersections of the lines as I wanted there to be a little movement in it.  The butterflies are from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways, cut from Promarker-coloured vellum and dressed with a single gem each.  They’re highly co-ordinated … not just landing on the intersections, but arranging themselves by colour, and then making sure they sweep up the card in a lovely swoosh!  What choreography!  The sentiment is again from The Big, The Bold and The Happy, this time the Cutaway, die cut and double heat embossed in liquid platinum.   Just think of the die cuts you could use in a similar way to the butterflies … hearts, flowers, leaves, birds … maybe even letters to spell out a name!

For my final card I’ve gone shimmery and shiny … and shaker-y …

W&W Leading Lady Week 3 Multifaceted 3Here, I cut Multifaceted six times, stacked five together, added a layer of acetate and then topped it off with the sixth.  The ‘sandwich’ was turned upside down and a mixture of aqua and silver seed beads plus some tiny silver sequins were poured into some of the sections.  It was pretty random … I just avoided having two filled sections next to one another.  A turqoise card panel was adhered to the back of the ‘sandwich’ and the whole thing was mounted on a white card base.  The sentiment is from The Big, The Bold and Friends, cut once in silver and once in teal … layered together and slightly offset to give some definition to that chrome like shine!   Here’s a close up so you can see it better …

W&W Leading Lady Week 3 Multifaceted 3 Close UpI experimented with different types of adhesive for these cards … and found that for fixing layers together on the first and third ones, a Zig Glue Pen worked a treat.  It was easy to quickly run the pen along the lines of the Cutaway and once the layers were glued together, it took just a short stay under a heavy book to keep them that way.  As the Cutaway on the butterfly card was only partly adhered, it needed a stronger glue … Ranger Multi Medium Matte was perfect … a dab of it on all the intersections, plus a moment or two under the heavy book was enough to keep it all secure.

I’ve had tons of fun playing with this new Cover Model … and hope you’ve enjoyed seeing just a few of it’s possibilites!  Julie and Shay have generously given me a $30 gift card to Winnie & Walter to give away this month … if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning it (you too could be playing with Multifaceted!), leave a comment on each of my Leading Lady posts … five posts during May, five chances to win!  I’ll do a random draw from all the comments and will announce the winner on Sunday 7 June!

Thanks so much to Julie and Shay for having me over to play again this week … I’ll be back next Saturday with another performance … hope you’ll join me!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

LOVE them all ..the lovely ombre effect with the paint chips and the clever idea to use the two cutouts to have even more lovely criss crossing lines …the oh, so sweet darling little butterflies ,added cleverly to have a perfect swoosh across the card …and the gorgeous shaker – paying attention to every little detail and not filling two sections next to each other!!!!

    Well done, my friend. I love the inking on the first (and the doubled die cut). The second is so YOU! and The third. Wow, that must have been a trip, getting those sequins to stay in their compartments. Great job.

  8. Cathy R

    These cards are so clever Anita, I was blown away with the ombre one, then I saw the gorgeous butterflies, beautiful with the white on white! Then you created another beauty with the shaker effect. TFS your tips on how you made these and the best glues to use too, Cathy x

  9. Jackie

    Beautiful cards! I looked at that die and thought I didn’t need it, but you have changed my mins. I love the different looks you created with it. Thanks for the tips about glue, too.

  10. Megan

    Thanks for the tips on glue. These detailed dies can be tricky. LOVE the colored vellum butterflies!

  11. irene grau

    I would never have thought to layer multiple cuts, but I love how that turned out! I would have thought it would be too busy, but it’s really not. And the background is beautiful. Great cards!
