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! 🙂

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


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.


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 fabulous Monogrammed stamp set.


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


You’ll see more of the Nautical Notions Die as well on this card. I used the life preserver as a frame for one of the die cuts from Clear Cut Stackers: CirclesAnd 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 Feathers stamp set and dies…but also the A2 Envelope Liner Die:


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


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:


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.


And that’s just the tip of the iceburg with this set…you have cupcakes too! Why yes…my all time favorite goodie since being pregnant. I even had a co-worker pay me with some! Ha!


And how about coordinating cupcake wrappers and bows…Oh my! Just so much fun…you seriously have to try them out! And of course you have to try a cupcake as well 🙂


Hope you’ve enjoyed these projects and my latest attempt to showcase them. We’ll be back in August for more fun from WPlus9! Stay tuned!

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.

I hope your making the most of this summer fun and get your tail over to WPlus9 and order these beauties up! Check back tomorrow for one more day of goodies from the June / July WPlus9 Release!

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


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?


Make sure to stop by tomorrow for more fun with the latest goodies from WPlus9! And don’t forget they are all available for purchase and fresh in stock at!

One More Day of WPlus9

Today is the last day I get to share with you the latest release from WPlus9. I saved the best for last…my favorite set from this release is definitely Fresh Baked!



How adorable are those stamps? And I LOVE the little utensils stamps that makes such a cute border. This card was super simple and the color combo was inspired by a “citrus” theme. It turned out so vintage and reminds me of a Brady Bunch kitchen 🙂

Day 2 More New Goodies from WPlus9

There are so many awesome new products in the latest release from WPlus9, just one day is not enough!

First up a card featuring the gorgeous Blanket Stitched Blooms and coordinating die cut. I am in LOVE with this set. I love the “stitched” feel of the stamps, they are so fun & funky! Totally different than any stamp set I’ve seen out there of it’s kind.


The way the stamps are layered it almost gives a “colored in” feel as well. I wanted to really show of the stitching so I created a strip of the stamps using WPlus9 White Pigment Ink. Then stamped the images with black, pink, and green on the die cut pieces. Finished it off with the “Just a Note” sentiment and some jewels.

Next up a baby card featuring the Pretty Patches Umbrella set and matching die cut.


With a green card base with some polka dot patterned paper as the base, I used the awesome Folk Art Alphabet Die to cut the letters out. These are going to be a staple for sure in my stash. I love how they are the perfect size for cards!

That’s all for today…check back tomorrow for two more cards featuring the fabulous Fresh Baked stamp set & coordinating die cuts!
