w&w 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop


 

Hi Folks! A big welcome to a flat-out fantastic blog hop celebrating Winnie & Walter's 4th birthday! We have an amazing list of bloggers assembled to surround you with friendship and love, starting at the Winnie & Walter blog, or you may have just come from the very sweet Rubeena.

I was excited to open up the brand new In Bloom: Ashlee's Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans stamp and cutaway set which was just released last week. The set is filled with many different 3-step flowers and leaves which makes it easy to get a consistently beautiful result. I adhered the die cut flowers to each other so I could hold them over different colors and patterns of paper to try and decide what to use in the background. This is helpful when you have no idea what direction to go, or if you're really stuck between a few choices and you just can't decide. You can "try on" different options.
 

Here's the "fashion show"! We've got a full bleed dark background to make the flowers really pop, a Swiss dot gray with white border for a sweet look, and a beige graph paper with charcoal border for a more graphic look.


These options are a little lighter, with light blue geometrics to contrast the florals, a thin yellow stripe to allow the purple blooms to stand out more. and a full bleed neutral patterned paper (reminiscent of a garden trellis).

Well, whatcha think? Do you have a favorite?
 

My original idea was to have the florals on a dark paper so they really stand out, especially with the white edge all around from the die cuts.
 

This background isn't super exciting, but I think that's why I like it. In this case you want the florals to be the star, not the background, so a subtle pattern like the swiss dots on gray could be a good choice.
 
Ultimately, I went with the florals on the geometric background, probably because I still had this amazing card from Tasnim in my head. Triangles + Florals = Winning Combo! I should also mention that the banner comes from the Framed with Evelin T Designs set. You would think that the sentiments came from the framed set as well, since they fit inside so perfectly, but those are acually from the Ashlee's Rosie Posies set. Love that in addition to getting several 3-step florals, you also get 2 scripted "beautiful's" and many secondary sentiments.

So, did I choose well? Would you have picked differently? Big decisions here, I know!

Winnie & Walter, LLC


Good news on prizes, there will be 4 winners picked at random from the entire blog hop who will each receive $40 credit to the w&w shop! Whoo-hoo!!

I am pleased to send you to the next stop in this hop, super-star Jessica Frost-Ballas!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  30. I think you made the right choice. I actually kind of surprised myself by how much I liked that particular paper behind it; I don't think I would have chosen it had I just looked at it myself, but I think it's beautiful in combination. I'll have to make a mental note: put focal points on ALL backgrounds, not just the few I think might work! Thanks for sharing with us.
