Thanks, Winnie & Walter!

Anyone else who loves shaker cards? I think they are just so much fun and I made one with lots of sparkle this time.
On the acetate for the window of the card I stamped the sequins from Winnie & Walter and a sentiment from Hero Arts that went so good with it. I used glitter cardstock as a background and painted the frame with my clear Wink of Stella pen to get even more shimmer. I filled it with some mixed sequins and was so very happy with this really glittery and fun card.
You haven’t missed that we are collaborating with Winnie & Walter this month? I had so much fun using their stamps.
There is a lovely prize from Simon Says Stamp for a lucky winner.
For the second card, I took the remaining printed card stock, keeping it as base, cut out a fish tail banner out of a background printable from the The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1: Journaling Cards. I then stamped the cute image from HA ‘Li’l hoot’ stamp set

Hi, all, Michelle here! I love my collection of background stamps – there’s just so much you can do with them! With these three cards, I tried to make a patterned paper look by stamping and then adding ink in two different ways.
This month, we’re lucky enough to be playing with Winnie and Walter stamps, along with Hero Arts. I also used two stamp sets from My Favorite Things on this first card.
To make the patterned panel, I stamped and white embossed the Fresh Cut: Raindrops background stamp, then used my Tim Holtz spritzer tool with some Distress Markers (Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Peacock Feathers). I then lightly blended over the lot with the palest colour, which unified the background, and also removed spritzed colour from the embossing.
I liked the results of this technique so much, I made two more cards using the same technique!
This last one is a one layer card.
