Winnie and Walter Leading Lady Week 4 – One Layer Cards with Masking

Hi everyone!  It’s my final week  of my Leading Lady reign at Winnie and Walter.  I want to give a big thanks to Shay for giving me this opportunity and all who have left such encouraging comments on each post.

I’ve saved my favorites for this week!  I created two one layer cards (this was difficult for me) with lots of masking and Copic coloring.  At the beginning of June, I owned one Copic marker with no intention of buying anymore.  Then I took a Copic class, only because a friend of mine was teaching it.  Needless to say, I now own quite a few Copic markers.  I still have so much to learn on how to use these, but I’m super happy on how these turned out.

For my first card, I stamped several of the dogs from the Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs stamp set.   I did some masking to get the dogs all lined up.  I then painstakingly colored them with Copic markers.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs to finish the card.

For the second card, I did the exact same thing except with cats from the Purrfect with Evilen T Designs stamp set.

For each card, I first stamped out how I wanted them laid out on a scrap piece of paper (top of the photo below).

Then I started stamping and masking!  When masking, you want to stamp the ones you want in the foreground first.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a Leading Lady and working with such wonderful products at Winnie and Walter.  Thanks again for the love the past three weeks.  Leave a comment on this post by 8/4 for a chance to win a $30 gift card from Winnie and Walter.  I will draw a random winner on 8/4 and contact the winner by email.

  1. Both cards are adorable! Love the way you colored the kitties and the pups! I’d have to color a kitty Siamese-style since that is what kind of cat my Coco is. Darling stamp sets!
    I’ve enjoyed all your Leading Lady posts this month! Thanks for inspiring us!

  2. Very worth your efforts to achieve these wonderfully fun cards! I almost never take time to mask, although I bought some liquid masking a long time ago that I really should try. Beautiful coloring–can’t believe you’re new to using Copics! I have a lot of them, but they mostly color pearls–haha!

  3. You did such a wonderful job of masking and I love both of these adorable cards. I think I need to look through my cute critter stamp sets and see what I can do with them, after seeing your sweet inspiration. Thank you for a great Leading Lady month!!

  4. Since today is my birthday, I’m going to pretend that your pup card is for me, lol! Masking is something that I rarely do because it takes so much time but this was totally worth it. These are so darn cute!

  5. I don’t mask very often, but think I will try to.
    I think these are adorable and don’t look too hard
    to do …

  6. Masking always seems so time-consuming that I rarely do it, either. Your cards are just the cutest! I esp love the kitties. Purr!!
