Pattern Making Challenge - Winnie & Walter 3rd birthday bash

Hello crafty friends!

Thank you for stopping by today – this is the fourth project I’ve completed for the huge Winnie & Walter 3rd birthday bash!  Hoping to be their next guest star for an upcoming release!  If you arrived here from anywhere other than the challenge site, please visit the challenge page here for more details.

I’m playing along with Mayuri’s pattern making challenge.   I wanted to do a clean and simple design, so I chose one of the smaller stamps.  It’s a cute little branch with small leaves, which I used to create a top and bottom patterned frame from the Addie’s Garden stamp set.

Using a mirror image stamping tool plus the MISTI, I stamped this image 4 times in each corner of the card panel in Versafine black pigment ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Then I stamped the words “best” and the large word “friends” from The Big, The Bold and friends stamp set using the MISTI.

To add a pop of color I used two shades of pink watercolor to paint the “leaves” with a Kuretake watercolor brush.

Before putting the card panel on, I trimmed off ¼” from each side

To finish off the card I glued two 1” x 5.5” inch strips of black & white striped cardstock to the outside edges of the card base, then glued on the stamped panel.

I also created a video tutorial showing how this was done, so you can see the mirror image stamping technique in action.

I’m so glad you stopped by today and hope you enjoyed reading about this fun card project!!
