I am a Leading Lady!



Happy World Card Making Day, folks!!! I have some VERY exciting news to share with you today! I am the Leading Lady over at Winnie & Walter for the month of October!!! I could not be more thrilled! I absolutely LOVE Winnie & Walter stamps, cut files, and, well, just about everything they make! LOVE! And Julie and Shay are pretty spectacular, too, so it's just a total package kind of deal, folks. Total. Package.

For my first week I wanted to have some fun with some of my FAVORITE Winnie & Walter stamps, so I decided on WORD UP! theme for this week. Yup. It's all about the words for this one, folks!

Happy Hello


For my first card, I used words as my absolute focal point. This one is ALL about the words. I stamped Happy from The Big, The Bold, and The Happy three times in different colors and then added the Hello, taking it off to the other edge to draw the eye to it. I love how words are the star of the show for this fun card!

Thankful for You


Another great thing about the word stamps from Winnie & Walter is that you can totally use them in the background, as well. For this fall card I stamped the word 'autumn' in the background repeatedly in a very pale ink to add visual interest and texture to the design. I then stamped my tree and the sentiment right on top! I love how the background adds so much to this card.

Black and White Thanks


For my final card, I actually didn't use any stamps at all?! WHAT?! I know, right? I cut the 'thanks' using the The Big, The Bold, and You cut files and used the negative as a stencil to trace my sentiment onto the card. I then used one of the BRAND NEW stencils from Winnie & Walter to add some bold, black embossing paste stripes across my card panel. I am LOVING these stencils!!! This card shows how words can be used in, perhaps the most traditional method, as a fabulous, standout sentiment!

And there you go, my friends! I hope you have enjoyed our little Word Play today! Go grab some of your The Big, The Bold stamp sets and make some magic happen!!!



Shay and Julie have GENEROUSLY provided a $30 Gift Card to one of my readers! To enter, simply comment on my Leading Lady posts here on the blog throughout this month. I will be choosing a winner at the end of the month from ALL of my Leading Lady posts, so you have a few chances to enter!
