Embossing Paste Giveaways Heat Embossing Stencils/Masks

Winnie and Walter Leading Lady Week 4: Clean and Simple

I had to share a closer look at that crackled background! Isn’t it gorgeous? I encourage you to check out their entire creative screenings line! Their stencils are fab!


And lastly, a simple one layered card (except I cheated and added some alpha stickers, tsk tsk) using some masking… I couldn’t resist using the deer from the Happy Christmas stamp set again. I know, I know! I masked off the edges and inked up the background using distress paints. Then using the Big Bang Circle Creative Screening, I created some snowflakes by using some embossing paste with the stencil.. I love one layer cards with lots of dimension and pairing the stamps with the stencils is a great way to achieve that!


Sniff, Sniff! This post concludes my wonderful month as Leading Lady!  I’ve shared lots of Winnie and Walter projects for you these last 4 weeks and I hope you all have enjoyed joining me.  Don’t forget,  I’ve got a giveaway!!! Simply leave comments on all of my Leading Lady posts, and you could win a $30 gift card to Winnie and Walter!!! I will choose a winner at the end of the month from ALL of the Leading Lady posts, so you’ve got lots of opportunities to get your name in the hat! 4 to be exact!
