Winnie & Walter Challenges

share the love graphic pinkfresh

I had such fun making cards for the Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash using my In a Word: Hello die.  Mr. Random didn't pick any of them, but luckily, there's a new W&W challenge: Share the Love Week Featuring Felicity by Pinkfresh Studio. There are 5 days & you don't even have to use W&W or Pinkfresh to enter. Here are my cards for 3 of the days.
vanessa_sharetl
I was inspired by Vanessa's Day 2 card.  Last year I won the Pinkfresh Christmas Wishes paper pack which includes a beautiful blue geometric pattern.  I used Vanessa's layout for a card I'll send when the recipient is not expecting it.  
My friend, Cat, often sends me die cuts & the last envelope included this hello from W&W The Big, The Bold & the Happy. The stitched dies are Lil' Inker & Lawn Fawn, the flowers are MFT & the leaves are Penny Black. Finished off with PPP Marshmallow sequins.  I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.
lydia_DSC07436Next up, Day 3.  I really loved Lydia's card using the leaf cutaway (on my wishlist!) over printed paper & a sentiment strip across the bottom. Decided the PTI Hexagon cover plate would work over another of the PF Christmas papers & have to say I love it!  
The sentiment is by A Muse & the trees on either side are from the part of the paper I cut off.  I added Stickles & matted it to another piece from the paper pack which I cut with MFT pinking edge die.  The clear dots are PPP.  I'm also entering The Playground.
kate_IMG_6989Last is my card inspired by this Day 5 jaw-dropper Kate made! I've been wanting to try Gina K's embossing over watercolor technique & I'll definitely try it again.  I used images from Verve New Beginnings & the sentiment from Verve Simply Amazing & Amazing Adjectives dies--a gift from a very generous blogging friend.  
The white panel was die cut with a PPP stitched border & the die cut word was heat embossed.  Loved using my mini MISTI to get the sentiment arranged. Again PPP clear dots provide the embellishment.  I'm also entering TwofersDie Cut Divas, SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Penny Black & More
Working tomorrow & have company Saturday, but still hope to make a few more before the deadline.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
