Here for You - Winnie & Walter Color Combo

Hi, Friends.....

Whew!!! In the midst of this wild and crazy, sometimes nerve-wracking, adventure that is life in the Woolbright home, I finally am back with another card I made for the Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge for July. Take a look at the fabulous inspiration photo and color palette that Heather H. chose for this month....YUM!!!:

This is a bonus card. Unbeknownst to me, all the time I took to die-cut foliage from a shimmery green scrap for THIS CARD, I actually was making a lovely panel that could be used on an entirely different card. Yay!! I replaced a few of the negative scraps inside the holes and absolutely love the serene look for a sympathy/thinking of you card for a dear widow who had a delayed memorial service for her husband, who had passed away this winter. (Nobody wants out-of-towners to have to travel to the mountains of N.Central Idaho in the snow!)
I am having MAJOR problems with my I apologize for the graininess of my photo.  Please bear with me.
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set (leaves)
Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set
Versafine Ink - Onyx Black
Clear Embossing Powder
Darice - Interlocking Circles
Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers
Scraps from my stash

Hope you enjoyed seeing my bonus card! I have several more Winnie & Walter cards to post, so I will see you soon!!!

  1. How cool to put some of the pieces back in the negative space! I'm sure she appreciated the work you put into this sweet little piece of art!

  3. What a fabulous way to use your negative space from die cutting! Thanks for linking your lovely card to the Cropstop challenge this month.

  4. Wow, I hadn't realized you had all those W&W dies! I knew you had the scalloped edge frame, but didn't remember those leaves. What a lovely card to remember a lost loved one, and a creative use of those positive and negative die pieces!

  5. Leaves and these soothing colors are perfect for a sympathy card, Janis - that's the direction I generally go to, also. Thank you for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  6. Hi Janis,
