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.

Fresh Cut Florals

Hope you’ve had a wonderful 4th of July! Summer is definitely in full swing around here with temps in the 90’s daily! I’m so excited I {finally} get to share with you some projects from the June / July Release of WPlus9’s fabulous products.

First up…Fresh Cut Florals

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.

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

I’ve also used the adorable sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 2.

And one more to share…can you tell I just love these florals?

Here is my take on the challenge:

cd-17-kgb

I have to admit…this was my second attempt at the challenge. The first one was just not cutting it. I think the “practice card” was worth it though because I love the way this card bloomed into a finished piece. And I was almost under a whole minute this time! That 10 minutes is tough!

With a kraft base I used a strip of patterned card stock and stamped the beautiful flowers from Blanket Stitched Blooms in alternating pink & aqua and adhered it to the base. I then used a kraft tag I had in my stash to stamp the sentiment and tied it on with some twine. To finish it off two crochet flowers and a pearl to boot.

Hope you have chance to play along! And be sure to stop by Dawn’s & Paulina’s blogs to learn more!

Happy Monday! Hope your day is starting off not as crazy as mine…but that seems to be the story of my life lately! I did have some time this weekend to get my “craft on” – and played along with The Play Date Cafe’s Challenge #153.

Aren’t those colors just divine! I knew I wanted to use them to make one of my good friend’s daughter’s birthday card. She’s about as “girly” as they get so this color combo was perfect!

This card has lot’s of layers going on with vintage lace & punched borders. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from RetroGirly Birthday from WPlus9. Hope you get a chance to play along as well! Have a great week!

Day 1 WPlus9 October Release

Hello blogland! Hopefully you had a fabulous weekend and are ready to get some new goodies from WPlus9!

I will just start off with saying…hold on to your hats…these stamps & die cuts are GORGEOUS!! I just couldn’t put them down.

First up: Seasonal Sentiments Die Cut & Folk Art Flurries Stamp Set

Yep that’s just one of the three sentiments that come in the Seasonal Sentiments Die Cuts. I really wanted my silver embossing powder to *pop* so I used WPlus9’s Black Card Stock to stamp the Folk Art Flurries all over.

Next up: Pretty Patches: Christmas Stamp Set

This set is just so country & homey and reminds me of visiting all the family at Christmas time. I went much more organic with this card using a kraft base and stamping brown & cranberry with the stamps. Hmm…maybe I am channeling some turkey  & cranberries? 🙂

So yes…that’s just the TIP of the iceberg with this AMAZING release. Make sure you check out what all of the rest of the fabulous ladies of the WPlus9 Design Team have worked their magic with:
