Wplus9 Nov. Release Week: Day 2

Monday, November 8, 2010

Yea!  We're, officially, back with another, fantastic, Wplus9 release!  This time, however, all of the stamp sets are, already, available, for purchase, in the Wplus9 Store, for those of you that just cannot wait.  Today, we're showing off a super, cute, little set, from our very own Kerrianne Gwin, called RetroGirly Christmas.
I started this card by stamping the girly image, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I, then, colored her with Rose Red, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, and Close to Cocoa inks and a blender pen and topped off her hair ribbon with a tiny, clear gemstone.  The first three bags, moving from left to right, were cut from patterned paper; and the final bag was colored, with Rose Red ink and a blender pen, and glittered.
The "Tis the season..." sentiment was, then, stamped, in Certainly Celery ink, above the girly image.
A couple of glitter, patterned papers, one of which was punched across its bottom edge, were adhered across the bottom of the stamped, Whisper White cardstock...
and the entire piece was dressed up with a few bright-pink-threaded, straight and zig-zag stitches, before being embellished, along its left side, with a pleated, color-coordinating ribbon, which, actually, came off one of my daughter's recent, birthday gifts, and adhered, with dimensionals, to the Rose Red, cardstock, card face.
My color inspiration, for this card, came from Cupcake's Creations' Create For Fun: Challenge 3.
Here's the deets for RetroGirly Christmas...
Set of five high-quality, photo-polymer stamps
