WCMD with W&W

I had to work on Saturday, so I'm really glad Winnie & Walter is giving us until 10/9/16 to complete their WCMD challenges.  They don't even require you to use W&W products, but my order arrived quickly & I'm excited to put them to use!   
First up is CAS with Kate & boy did she make a wonderfully creative card to inspire us!  Fall has arrived at our place--turned on the heat for the first time.  Makes it easy to work on Fall cards which I did using In Bloom: Renee's Leaves & Big, Bold, Seasons. I've always loved browsing in stationary stores & was going for the look of a classy ivory Cranes note card.  The image is heat embossed in detail copper powder & the sentiment is stamped in Memento Northern Pine. I used AJVD Polka Dot Backdrop rectangle to cut the panel & mounted it with fun foam. I'm also entering CAS on Sunday, Virginia's View & Word Art Wednesday.

The other card I've completed so far is for Stretch Your Stamps with Kelly.  Again I used the same 2 stamp sets & a matching die. It's Spring for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere & that makes me think of flowers & pastels.  I stamped the leaf image in Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender to make a bloom--super fun & easy!  I sponged a bit of the ink in the center & added some splatters.  The sentiment is white embossed on a black scrap & the die cut word is 3 high, covered with MFT Glitter Glaze & attached with a black shadow.  I'm also entering SSS WednesdayThe Playground.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  6. Hey Greta! Gorgeous cards! Your first one does indeed look like a very classy cranes stationary. The font of your sentiment is perfect for that. And I love that you made a bloom out of the leaf stamp. Very creative! Thanks so much for joining my challenge to stretch your stamps at Winnie & Walter!

  12. I love the clean and simple crisp look of both of these. That copper is just stunning all by itself and I love the blue leaf card too. I turned the heat on Monday morning just enough to take the chill out of the house. Then it warmed up and the furnace didn't come on again. It has been in the 70's in the daytime and suppose to be 80's the rest of the week. It's still chilly in the mornings.
