Wplus9 Dec./Jan. Release: Day 3

Friday, December 2, 2011

Well, I hope you all are just as excited as we are about what you've seen so far!  But that's not all by a mile!  We've got another, new, A Pocketful: Valentine, as well as its coordinating, Love Notes die, to show you all today.  So, grab a cuppa your favorite, holiday steamer and relax a bit, as I show you all the details behind the making of this trio of Valentine cuties.
Let's take a look at each one up close and personal.  Shall we?
I started this card by stamping the lollipop images, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, Very Vanilla cardstock; stamping the row of hearts in Ruby Red ink; coloring the ribbons with a Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write Marker and the sticks with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker; framing it with a piece of Ruby Red cardstock; and machine stitching, with turquoise-threaded, straight stitches, around the ink distressed cardstock's edges, before dressing it up with a dab of glitter...
and adhering it to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face, which had its bottom right corner rounded and had been stamped, in Basic Black ink, with the "be mine Valentine" sentiment.
I then adhered a length of ivory trim, across all layers, near the bottom of the stamped piece and wrapped a length of Baker's Twine, around the card face, three times, over it, before lacing it through a Pure Poppy button and tying it, in a bow, near the left edge of the card face.  The sweet, little pocket was die cut, from Very Vanilla cardstock, using that new, Love Notes die; stamped, in Ruby Red ink; backed with a little, scrap piece of gingham, patterned paper, peeking through the die cut heart; and adhered, with foam tape, just below the lollipops and over the embellished trim.
The second card, in the row above, was made in exactly the same way...
with the exception of a different, "Sweet on you" sentiment...
and another, fun, little, stamped image, which was colored in with Tempting Turquoise ink and a blender pen.
And the same thing goes for the third.
It was given a "Love notes" sentiment...
and the pocket was filled with stamped, in Tempting Turquoise inks, envelopes, which were dressed up with a touch of glitter.
Okay, folks, tomorrow's the big reveal, but us designers are still going to have plenty to share.  So, please come on back for Day 4!  I've cooked up a layout, for you all, using all the dies from this release and sentiments from two of the new, stamp sets, as well as images from a couple of oldies but goodies, Love Birds and Class Act.  Can't wait to share it!  Thanks, again and again, for hanging out with me today, and have a truly terrific weekend!
