winnie and walter mojo overload finale

My last two creations for the Winnie and Walter 1st birthday bash are up today. I've had such fun playing along. Are you playing yet?

My first card is for Julie's Shaker challenge. And I decided to use a W&W facebook freebie too (details can be found on my link to the birthday bash).

This was such fun. I started with the image. Masked around it and applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to frame it before stamping the secondary sentiment. I really love the typewriter font used on many W&W sets. Then I searched for some PP in green and found this pattern from Basic Grey PB&J. Die cut my frame with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. TIP: Use a frame die cut from craft foam and adhered with Matte Medium in place of foam adhesive to avoid sticky edges for sequins to stick to. I have a skinny paintbrush dedicated to Matte Medium which works great in small areas.

Added some orange and pink sequins, and my shaker in W&W colors was nearly finished. I added a balloon die cut from patterned vellum with a metallic string on the front for some extra fun.

I'm also playing at Cure for the Monday Blues. Happy Birthday, Taheerah!

And at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is "New". I used my new SSS balloon die on my shaker card.

Last, but not least, a tag. I wanted a smaller canvas to work with the fabulous leaf stamps from The Big, Bold and Extras. I think the tag can adorn a plant given as a gift so I chose to use "natural" ink colors. I'm hooking up to Mayuri's Distress Inks + Patterns challenge with this.

If you've followed my posts the past few days, I hope you've enjoyed my projects. And I hope you are inspired to join the party at Winnie and Walter. See you over there. And if you're interested, come back tomorrow for my Faves of 2014. Although if you are one of the luckies, you're probably on your way to CHA... If you are, enjoy. And share please!

  10. Two more fabulous creations Maria. LOVE the shaker card. I have trouble with the sequins sticking to the edges, but have used foam not foam tape. I think I was too liberal with my glue :) I had tape runner was gone, so I resorted to liquid glue. Doesn't work well. :) But yours turned out perfectly, so there's hope for me yet! :)

    Love the tag with naturals stamps and colours. The black really makes the green pop. Beautiful! Loll xx
