Just because you make life sweet

I'm back with two more cards for the Winnie & Walter challenges.

For my first card, I heat-embossed the tree image from the Kinness with Evelin T Designs (Winnie & Walter) in clear embossing powder and then coloured the image using Inktense pencils and a small brush. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Paper Smooches.

W&W - CAS with Kate
W&W - Stretch your stamps with Kelly
W&W - Make a card for a (crafty) friend with Taheerah.

This card is for my sister to whom I seem to have recently passed the stamping bug. She has proven that she has a talent for thinking outside of the box. I sent her a set of Memento dew drop inks and she used them to stamp a sunflower, using the ink pads as stamps. Amazing! I also know these fresh colours will appeal to her. In addition to being my sister, she is also my friend.

My second card was another card that was long in the making. I started working on it for Winnie & Walter's Rerun challenge No. 13, and was inpired by Gayatri's bouquet. I finally managed to finish it this weekend.

I used the blooms, leaves and sentiment from various W&W stamp sets. The vase is from a NBUS set by Wplus9. The dotted vellum is by Papertrey Ink.

W&W - Background building with Shay
W&W - CASE with Lydia (Gayatri's cards from Rerun No. 13)
