Winnie & Walter Leading Lady

Happy weekend, all! =) I am thrilled to be the November Leading Lady for Winnie & Walter! It's such an honor and I have been having a lot of fun playing with some super cool products!

For my first project as the Leading Lady, I am sharing my love for texture and dimension.

I love adding textures with tone-on-tone die cuts for backgrounds on my cards. I know this process could take time sometimes, but it's well worth it! =) The background is created using two layers of In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways cutouts. I usually use a negative of the cutouts as a guide when I glue them down.

The sentiment is cut using In a Word: Celebrate Cutaway and colored in rainbow colors with Copic markers.This is probably one of my most favorite ways to create a clean background and I hope you find it worth trying!

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Winnie & Walter, please visit the Winnie & Walter Blog! =)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
