Sparkle & Shine Challenge Nine: Inspiration Photo sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh

Hey everyone! This is my second post of the day. For the Winnie & Walter Rerun please go here. It is time for the new Sparkle & Shine Challenge sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh. We have this great inspiration photo for you to play:



And this is the card I made inspired by it:


First, I stamped the mason jar and masked it. Then I inked the background, applied droplets of pearlescent ink and stenciled some stars with white pigment ink. After I had removed the mask, I colored the mason jar with Copics. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. Finally I adhered the sequins.

I hope you'll play! Can't wait to see your take on the photo!

Winnie & Walter Rerun No. 2

Hello there! This is one of two posts today. You'll find the Sparkle & Shine post here.
The Winnie & Walter team is showcasing one of the older stamp sets today. This time we are using The Big, the Bold and Fun. I wanted to use the word "shine" and combined it with the cute set My Precious:


I first die-cut an aqua colored panel using Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment. Now I created a mask for the diamond image and applied white pigment ink and Zig Wink of Stella for the shine of the diamond. I removed the mask and adhered the panel to the card. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the diamond onto white cardstock. I colored the diamond with aqua Gelatos and water, cut it out and adhered it to the card with foam tape. Here you can see the shine better:

Be sure to hop to the Winnie & Walter blog to see the samples of the other members of the Talent!

Thanks for stopping by today!

The Colors of the Rainbow...

…so pretty in the sky.
Sorry, I always have this song in my head when creating a rainbow card. Today I made one for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #22 and the SSS Wednesday Challenge "anything goes".


I can't help but to think of artificial colors when seeing brightly colored food, but I love creating brightly colored cards :o)
So here is one:


I created my own stencil with the balloon die and applied ink with an ink blending tool, making a rainbow of balloons. Then I stamped the cute bear and colored him with Copics. Finally I stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. It is difficult to see, but I drew thin strings from the balloons to the bear's paws with a pencil.

Have a sunny day everybody and thanks for visiting!
