Day 2 with WPlus9

Yes I am back with more of the latest yummy products from WPlus9! I have to say I’m pretty impressed that I’m still cranking out cards being 9 1/2 months pregnant. It’s really not so bad other than the swelling and lack of sleep from being uncomfortable. Maybe the delerious-ness is making me even more creative! šŸ™‚

When I saw these adorable banner stamps fromĀ Basic BannersĀ I knew I wanted to keep it simple. Then of course I fell in LOVE with the anchor die cut fromĀ Nautical Notions Die.

day2-1-1

As an alumni of Delta Gamma sorority, we are kind of obsessed with anchors. For the sorority they represent “Hope” and are such a fun symbol. I love how the patterned paper really makes the anchor pop with a little bit of twine.

day2-1-2

And speaking of “Thanks” my little sister in the sorority was sweet enough to send a care package for baby Betty of darling “anchor” themed clothes! I can’t wait to see our little girl represent for Delta Gamma!

Next up something even a bit more nautical, but featuring the fabulousĀ MonogrammedĀ stamp set.

day2-2-1

Kraft goes beauitfully with the navy blue color of Nautical Navy Cardstock.Ā I love the background on this card, even though the photograph doesn’t do it justice. I used Dockside BackgroundsĀ with some gold embossing powder to create a pattern of little anchors and diamonds.Ā 

day2-2-2

You’ll see more of theĀ Nautical Notions DieĀ as well on this card. I used the life preserver as a frame for one of the die cuts fromĀ Clear Cut Stackers: Circles.Ā And of course the gorgeous sailboat die cut as well.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for even more “nautical” themed cards. I even feature some crabs…which I’m obsessed with those little critters right now!

WPlus9 August / September Release

That’s right!! We are back with some fabulous new products from WPlus9! Dawn really pulled out all the stops with this release. Not only are there amazing stamps, dies, and colors…now new envelopes and even a die cut to coordinate with them. How cool is that?

Definitely two of my favorite products from this release are the Fanciful FeathersĀ stamp set and dies…but also theĀ A2 Envelope Liner Die:

day1-1

Can you say glamour?!? Just love it. This card also features the newestĀ Borders & Backgrounds 2. I am obsessed with Chevron. And love how these stamps make the pattern so seamlessly on theĀ Lake House Cardstock.Ā 

day1-1-2

For the feathers, I die cut them and then stamped with an ombre of purples and blues. By using smaller stamp pads (think Stampin’ Up samples) you can create beautiful color combos.

I was loving this color combo so much with the feathers that I decided to play with some watercolors as well:

day1-2

The larger dies of the feathers are perfect for making a big statement. And the sentiments / fonts for this set are just gorgeous. I hope you’ve enjoyed my first two projects for this release. Make sure to check back tomorrow for more fun with the latest goodies from WPlus9!

Sweets & Treats

Hope you brought your sweet tooth…because WPlus9 is on a sugar kick! That’s right I’m back with more mouth watering sweets with the Sweets & Treats stamp set and coordinating die cuts!

Check out that scrumptious ice cream…YUM! Perfect for a summer celebration. And that gorgeous blue color is the latest ink hue Lakehouse.

Fresh Squeezed

That’s right…when it’s hot outside there is nothing more refreshing than some fresh squeezed lemonade! And WPlus9’s Milk & Cookies stamp set does not disappoint!

How fun are those colors…and the Ikat border…I can’t get enough…seriously! This card was super simple thanks to the gorgeous stamps from Milk & Cookies and Borders & Backgrounds 1.

My cravings with baby girl have definitely been on the sweeter side…and milk & cookies is one of my favorite treats! This card shows my love affair with the duo lately.

Milk & Cookies really are “better together” and this stamp set is just so much fun. I LOVE the little milk carafe and accompanying straw.

Black and white with some Cupid’s Bow ink to add a romantic touch.

onYourSpecialDay

These stamps are not only divine…they are so fun to layer! They truly create a “watercolor” style that you really don’t see with many stamps on the market today.

onYourSpecialDay2

And they even have coordinating die cuts! Here is another card that showcases the roses stamp & die cut leaves:

Update

Where’s Kerrianne and her cards? In case you are wondering why this poor little blog has been so light on content lately, I’ve been busy “crafting” away a little one in my tummy. I am almost to the 3rd trimester (2 weeks to go) and I seriously can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. To sit back and realize it will be June in a week blows my mind.

Before Baby Bowen, I was able to juggle a very demanding full time job, 2 step kids, and a blog with crafty cards. Unfortunately, with work getting even crazier, and pregnancy taking the energy out of me…you see where we have ended up. I hope you will still follow along with me when I do get to post, and I really do want to make it more of aĀ priority!

I’ve actually found humor in some of theĀ deliriousĀ times so hopefully I can share more of that with you in the future. I will still be playing along with WPlus9’s beautiful releases and hope to get some time this summer to play along with more challenges. I hope this finds you well…and know that I still use my lunch break to scope out all of the beautiful blogs out there. (due to the crazy firewalls at work I can’t comment on them though!)

25weeks

In baby updates our little girl is growing fast and I can’t believe we only have 3 months to go! I feel her more and more every day and can’t wait to meet her. We’ve decided on a name and I’m in love with it already. June 29th we will be doing maternity photos and I can’t wait!

Friday Fun

I know I probably say this a ton…but I am SO happy it’s Friday. It’s been a tough week. I didn’t even have time to make any Mother’s Day Cards this year. {tsk tsk}

Just wanted to wish you and yours a wonderful Mother’s day weekend. And share this adorable card my Father sent me for my “first” Mother’s Day šŸ™‚
