I am back with #2 of my Graphic 45 Card Extravaganza where I went a little bit crazy making cards with my Graphic 45 Precious Memory collection. These papers are great for making Mother's Day cards...or baby cards.....cards for small children.....or all-occasion cards for those special ladies in our lives. The vintage images are so evocative of long ago memories. I made this one especially for a couple of challenges:
1. Winnie & Walter May Color Combo Challenge with Heather H. (ends June 9) - I noticed that the colors in the G45 papers were very similar to the lovely ones in the palette that Heather chose this time. The papers even feature roses along with the babies and mommies....just like in the inspiration photo!
2. Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge #19: Parentville (ends May 31) - The W&W Rerun challenges are where a stamp set from the past is featured. Shay and her design team members make cards with this older set and she challenges us to make a card using it, also. If we don't have the set, we can use a different W&W product to make a card inspired by one from the design team. Fun!!! This month Shay is actually has two stamp sets to rerun:
|W&W Parentville Stamp Set|
|W&W Parentville Extras Stamp Set|
And....Shay even has a giveaway!!!
Comment on the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge and Giveaway post to have a chance to win BOTH of these stamp sets!!
Wow!! Thank you, Shay!!!
Here's my card......
I don't have either of the W&W Parentville/Extras sets, so I drew inspiration from a card that Shay made in THIS POST. I loved Shay's two-toned stamping/embossing on her Mother's Day card and did a similar thing with my heat-embossed sentiment on a sponged die-cut.
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (the banner under the sentiment)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (the scalloped rectangle)
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set (sentiment)
