Winnie & Walter / 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship

Hugs

Hello!  I am honored to be in the lineup of fabulous designers to help Winnie & Walter celebrate their 4th Birthday!  I have had the best time getting to know Shay over the years and am so happy for her and this milestone!  

The full blog hop list is below so make sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments for the giveaways!


What better to celebrate......Love & Friendship!  
I had fun mixing and matching some stamps and dies from Winnie & Walter.  

I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper to which I white heat embossed the outline hearts from From the Bottom of My Heart.  Using some watercolor, I loosely watercolored over the hearts for an emboss resist look to create my background and added some splatters.  Using a another piece of watercolor paper, I die cut the In a Word: Hugs Cutaway several times to create my chipboard element.  Sending You, from Sentimental: Love, was white heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock.  

My sentiments were adhered over a die cut heart from the From the Bottom of My Heart CutawaysThis panel was adhered over a strip of black/white striped paper on the left.   A few die cut hearts from watercolor paper and clear sequins were added as embellishments.
