Hi readers! Happy Saturday! Today we’re spotlighting a really fun brand; Winnie & Walter. Please join me in welcoming Gayatri Murali as a first time guest on our store blog! You may have noticed her work on our Wednesday Challenge team! She is the newest member! :) I just love this sentiment. It’s something to keep in mind, and I think would be a great card to give to someone having a down day. Isn’t that shade of yellow super cheery? Read on to find out more info on how to recreate this beauty!

Hi there everybody, I am very excited to guest design for Simon Says Stamp Blog today. I a card using Winnie & Walter stamp sets. I stamped a tribal pattern inspired background using Scenery: Stripes, Scenery: Rectangled and Triangled and Scenery: It’s a Wonderful Pennant.

To make this card, I started with stamping the solid triangle border image from Scenery: Rectangled and Triangled stamp set with yellow pigment ink, followed by the scalloped stripe from Scenery: Stripes stamp set with grey pigment ink, then again the solid triangle border image in yellow. Followed by a thin stripe from Scenery: Stripes stamp set with grey pigment, then the outline rectangle from the Scenery: Rectangled and Triangled stamp set, finishing with another grey thin stripe. I stamped this pattern until I covered the entire panel. To finish the background, I stamped the tiny triangle from Scenery: It’s a Wonderful Pennant stamp set in grey inside the outline rectangle image. Absolutely love how the tribal stamp sets pattern turned out.

The background is too busy, so I added a smaller vellum panel on which I white heat embossed the large sentiment “Smile” by masking off the “s” from “Smiles” stamp. The smaller sentiment, I stamped in black on a white strip of cardstock and adhered below the larger sentiment using foam adhesives. This also helps hide the foam adhesive added behind the vellum panel to be adhered on the stamped background panel. The sentiments are from The Big, the Bold and Friends stamp set.

Finally, I added sparkly grey enamel dots and Lemon drop sequins to bring the card together. I then taped this completed panel on to a white card base. I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by today!
