Bright Colors Challenge – Winnie & Walter 3rd birthday bash


Hello Crafty Friends,

This post is all about the second card I created for the W&W birthday bash for one of their 10, yes TEN separate challenges celebrating their 3rd birthday.  So far, I’ve created five cards out of excitement of using their wonderful stamps.  Did I mention that they also offer some SVG files for those of us who own electronic die cutting machines?  I took complete advantage of that for some of the elements on this card.

If you arrived here randomly and want to know what the scoop is on this challenge, the link below will take you directly to Lydia’s post on the W&W blog for this particular one.

I am competing for a potential guest star role for their next release (wish me luck!).  I decided for this challenge the stamp set Addie's Garden Stamp Set  plus the cutouts from two sets   Addie's Garden Digital Elements and Hello, Hi & Hugs Digital Elements would make the perfect card.  Here it is!!



I cut out all the pieces in the Addie's Garden Digital Elements on my Cricut, then stamped them before coloring with my Spectrum Noir and Copic markers.  Ultimately, I ended up using only the Daffodil, Daisy, Rose, Hydrangea and Dahlia plus some of the leaves from the set.  The majority of my time was spent coloring – actually putting the card together once that was done went very quickly.

Before gluing the flowers to the card, I arranged them in the order I wanted, then used a piece of Glad Press N Seal on top of them to keep them in place, turned over and applied adhesive on the back of all the flowers, then placed the white A2 panel on top.  Easy Peesy!

I die cut the word “hello” from gold mirror cardstock from Hello, Hi & Hugs Digital Elements with my Cricut and glued on for the sentiment to complete and then attached the panel to an A2 sized white card base.

I have 3 more cards that I will be posting, so if you want to be notified of all future posts, please take a moment to subscribe to my blog - you can do so via email or click on the BlogLovin' link on the right hand side of this page to receive future updates.
