STAMPtember featuring Winnie & Walter!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to another collaboration STAMPtember post.

Featuring Winnie & Walter stamp set called The Big Bloom. Love the big beautiful flower which is great for colouring, layering, paper piecing..... You can do so many techniques with it and will make a big impact. Love the different flower centres. Lovely stamp set and dies.

As part of Winnie & Walter design team, I have a project to share with you using this beautiful stamp set.

Merci card
I love the flower so much that I wanted to make it the highlight of the card. So I white heat embossed it on watercolour paper and watercoloured it with pink and orange colours to make the flowers bright and beautiful. I also heat embossed the leaves and water coloured them with two shades of green. For the flower centre, I chose to use the sentiment Merci so I don't have to stamp a sentiment and take away the focal point which is the flower. I hand cut out the flowers and leaves, layered the flowers.

For the background, I used Rectangled Creative Screening from Winnie & Walter, sponged Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo distress inks on a white cardstock panel. Spattered some Picked Raspberry distress ink. I layered this panel over a strip of wooden panel pattern paper over the card front. I then adhered the flowers and leaves using foam adhesives with the sentiment centre. That is all. I think I love the big bold  flower makes a huge impact and I like that a lot :) Hope you do too.
