Wplus9 Apr./May Release: Group Post

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Note: If you've come here looking for my PDCC126 - The Scrap Cake post, please scroll down.

Today's the day, folks!  Your new Wplus9 Design goodies are awaiting your creative input over in the Wplus9 Design Online Store.  But before you're off to getting your inky, little fingers on some for yourself, we've all got one more creation to share.  Mine boasts more of Onesie Twosie and its coordinating die, as well as Background Builders: Knit.
I started this card by stamping the knit background, from Background Builders: Knit, in Certainly Celery ink, on a piece of ink distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered a couple handfuls of hexagonal, storybook stickers over the left side of the design and machine stitched, with black-threaded, straight stitches, between all of their connections, before stamping the right side of the design, in stamped off Basic Black ink, with the row of numbers, from Onesie Twosie; adhering the prepped piece to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face; and machine stitching, with white-threaded, zig-zag stitches, around its edges.
The card face was then wrapped with a length of white lace, which was topped with a pink, gingham ribbon, tied, in a bow, near the right edge of the card face and embellished with a green, button blossom, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows.
I then die cut the label frame, from a pink, polka dot, patterned paper, using the Label Layers 1 die; ink distressed its edges; stamped it, in Basic Black ink, with the "welcome" sentiment; adhered it, with foam tape, just to the left of the embellished bow; and dressed up its center with a die cut, from Pink Pirouette cardstock, using the Onesie Twosie die, and ink distressed onesie, which was stamped, in Pretty in Pink ink, with not only the onesie itself, but also the crown and "princess" wording, all from Onesie Twosie, and hung on a mini hanger.  A lone, clear gemstone, on the crown, completes the look.
That's it, for this month, ya'll!  Thank you ever so much for all your kind and encouraging comments!  I truly so appreciate and treasure each and every one!  Please be sure to pop in and leave some love for the rest of the team, today, too.  I absolutely can't wait to see what you all do with these beauties!  So, run, and get 'em!  And until next time, happy stamping!
