Wplus9 Dec. Release Sneak Peek: Day 1

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Welcome to another, fantastic, Wplus9 Design release!  I cannot tell you how excited and grateful I am to get to be a part of this amazing company!  We've got two stamp sets, for you all, this month.  Today we're showing off So 80's, and it is just that... so 80's!  The layout, that I created with this set, doesn't reveal it's true, 80's nature; but just look at that fact as this set's versatility, because, I have a super, 80's-inspired card coming, later in the week.
I started this layout by machine stitching, with black-threaded, straight stitches, a piece of blue, notebook, patterned paper onto the black, polka dot, patterned paper and layering a white, notebook, patterned paper, as well as a rusty, yellow, polka dot, patterned paper, both of which were anchored with random, black-threaded, zig-zag stitches, just inside that stitching, in the bottom right corner.
After adhering pictures (which I admit aren't the best.  The gym lighting, as well as Ezekiel's constant movement, made it super difficult to get a few, good takes.), I added a few, Whisper White, journal strips, which read, Gymnastics always put the biggest smile on your face.  You loved playing with the other kids, running the obstacles, chasing the bubbles, balancing on the beam, and getting your stamp at the end of class.  But most of all, you loved jumping on the trampoline.  June 2008
Next came the fun part!  I stamped the "Awesome" title, in Basic Black ink, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which I had cut in the shape of a rocket.  I, then, paper pieced the boosters in Basic Gray cardstock; the stripe in Pacific Point cardstock; and the tip in leftover, rusty, yellow, polka dot, patterned paper, before adhering it, to the layout surface, with dimensionals.
The flames were stamped, in Summer Sun and Really Rust inks, below the boosters, on the white, notebook, patterned paper.
Finally, I clear embossed the star, in the center of a  Cricut-cut, from Pacific Point cardstock, star, and adhered it to the center of a fan flower, that I created with more, leftover, rusty, polka dot, pattered paper, a punch, and my score board.
I'd love to know what you love, as would Dawn and the rest of the design team.  So, be sure to run check out their creations; and I hope to see you all back here, tomorrow, for another sneak peek.  Have a fantastic week, ya'll!
