This card started with yellow card base and some fun french patterned paper. I wanted to make the banner stamp and sentiments the focal piece of this card so I kept with the yellow and black color theme. A paper flower and some twine finished it off.

There are so many awesome sentiments in the stamp set you could literally use them for just about any occasion! Make sure you stop by each member of the Design Team blogs’ for more:

WPlus9 Feb/March Release Day 2

So were you as blown away by Day 1 as I was? I mean…just GORGEOUS projects all over the place! Glad you are back for Day 2 with WPlus9. Today we are introducing Lacey Layers, Lacey Layers Companion Die and Embroidered Bouquet.

My card today features Lacey Layers & Companion Die Cuts:

One combo I’ve fallen in love with lately is kraft & white ink (and especially WPlus9 Ink!). It’s just such a fun way to show off these lace stamps! This card features a couple of the fun stamps and die cuts.

I started with a kraft base and then added layer upon layer of lace and the faux buttons. They are super easy to create with the die cuts and stamps and a small hole punch. Topped it off with some aqua ribbon and button, along with some girly pink roses. The sentiment is from yesterday’s set Very Vintage Florals.

Just my Type

Here is a fun little card with a fabulous sentiment and a cute little typewriter. I made it as a thank you card for a friend that’s wonderful writer! We get to collaborate quite often at work…and even come up with fun book titles we plan to write one day 🙂

This card is an entry for:

Just Add Ink #150

JUGS #173

All this card took was a mismatch of pieces from a scrapbook kit, some pearls, and of course the super cute sentiment from WPlus9’s “Quite Like You” stamp set.

10 Min Craft Dash #10

WPlus9 is super excited to sponsor Paulina’s 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge #10

The colors this week are gorgeous, so it was so fun to wrap up a little Valentines Card in the short 10 minute challenge.

I started by creating a fun border with the XO stamp from Love You More and some light pink ink. Then wrapped the whole card with a giant piece of green ribbon as the focal piece.

Some pink and white baker’s twine to hang a pewter little embellishment with the romantic “head over heels” sentiment.

Then I finished off the card with the “my valentine” stamp and a little bling.

Make sure you check out all the fun over at Pretty Pink Posh & WPlus9!

WPlus9 December Release Day 3

Welcome back! Hope you are enjoying this release from WPlus9 as much as we are! Just seriously too much fun with these adorable sets.

Today we are debuting 2 more stamp sets & a coordinating die cut:

  • Damask Delight Stamp Set & Die Cut
  • Quite Like You Stamp Set

Can you say LOVE? I am a huge sucker for Damask. I have curtains, aprons, just about everything you can imagine I probably have in Damask. I just love the elegant feel of the pattern and the regal vibe it evokes.

This card was inspired by my love of mixing mustard green with black & damask. Super simple & incorporates the Damask Delight Stamp Set, a couple of the coordinating die cuts, and the sentiment from Quite Like You. And that tag that the sentiment is nested on is from our preview on Day 1, Clear Cut Stackers: Rounded Rectangles.

day3-1

Another fabulous feature of these stamps is the gorgeous patterns they create. And the best thing about Damask is you don’t have to be a perfectionist. It just looks so regal! And ever so easy with some black ink. I embellished the bottom portion of the card with some fun patterned paper and stamped the “True Love” sentiment from Cupids Bow.

WPlus9 October Release: Group Post Day

So yes, this is always my favorite day of the release! Not only do you now get to purchase all the latest goodies from WPlus9 – it’s also Group Post Day! I always save my favorite card for last so here it is:

I just love the way this little Winter Wonderland turned out! I started with some vintage sheet music and stayed within a neutral color palette. I knew I wanted to feature the adorable silhouette of the carolers from Iconic Christmas to go along with the “music” theme.

I think my favorite sentiment stamp from this set is the gorgeous Noel sentiment stamp. And the filigree stamp just makes it so glamorous! I embellished with lots of textures and different things to finish off the card while still making sure the carolers steal the show.

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:
