W&W's 3rd - Pattern Making with Mayuri

w&w_b3rdb_challengefinal

I'm back today, still celebrating Winnie & Walter's 3rd birthday!  I am one that needs LOTS of practice with all-over, random stamping.  Mayuri made this gorgeous number:

I LOve the jewels, but wanted to take a holiday set I have and haven't had near enough fun with yet ... who says JOY isn't needed any time of year? 

For Winnie & Walter and Mayuri's Pattern Making Challenge, using In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals, and Cutaways:


 oh yes there are grey berries... though I wouldn't suggest eating them - they're for the birds!

This is so amazing!! LOVE the colors you used and the tiny tag on the sentiment. Who made that tag or did you make it yourself? I need that!! Oh and your note came today with the papers. Thank you so much!! I am planning on playing tomorrow as we are already called for snow!! I will be stamping and embossing stuff for you and will get it out Saturday!!

LOVE this....such pretty colors and I think you've done well with your all-over stamping! Beautiful, sweet and fresh!

Your random stamping looks so pretty here, Michele. Great color combo! Lovely flowers and leaves and those grey berries look delicious. ;) The sentiment looks beautiful in gray with the bitty white detail. And you added a sweet teeny tiny tag again. Such a nice finishing touch. :) Hugs!

Fabulous pattern stamping and a gorgeous card, Michele! You're right - we could all use a little JOY every day! Sending some your way like your sweet card did to me today ;-)

Your DIY pattern is so pretty, Michele! Not too full, just right!!! The sentiment in gray hiding among the flowers and gray berries is so sweet! And I love how you did with the tiny banner tag!!!

Beautiful take on Mayuri's card, Michele! I love that you chose those sweet delicate blooms and your gray berries are fabulous! I also love how you added the tag to the bottom of your die cut sentiment...so clever!

Brenda said...

The jewel card by Mayuri is indeed stunning, but I think your background is equally stunning Michele! It looks great and doesn't look like you need practice to me! I do love that stamp set you are using, those little flowers are precious and I love the berries. That little joy is just as cute as it can be too!! Love, love, love that teeny, tiny banner too! Hugs, Brenda

Love this all over pattern and the sweet sentiment tag!

Fantastic job with the all over stamping, Michele, even to sneaking in some gray.

These little flowers are so sweet and the gray berries work perfectly with them. Your all-over stamping looks fabulous!
