Thursday, January 31, 2013

Welcome to Wplus9 Design's February/March Release!  So excited to be back, y'all!  It's just too long between months.  We've got five stamp sets and four dies, as well as White ink (Woohoo!), to taunt you with this month.  Today we're showing off Very Vintage Florals and its coordinating Very Vintage Florals die, as well as Chantilly Trim and a must-have, Scalloped Border die.  So, let's just get started.  Shall we?

I started this card by die cutting the bottom edge of a piece of Kraft cardstock with our brand spankin' new Scalloped Border die.  Y'all, this baby's going to get an awful lot of use in my crafty space ;)!  I then stamped the bottom, lacy border...

and top, ruffled edge in White ink; trimmed the space between them with a strip of pink, decor, patterned paper; ink distressed the edges; framed the whole thing with Really Rust cardstock; and machine stitched, with white-threaded, zig-zag stitches, across the top edge of the patterned paper.

I then wrapped a length of brown, gingham ribbon, around the prepped piece, over the bottom edge of the patterned paper; tied it, in a bow, near the right edge of the prepped piece; and embellished it with a crystal button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows, before adhering the entire thing, with foam tape, to the Oatmeal, cardstock, card face.

The sentiment frame was stamped, in Crumb Cake ink, on an ink distressed, Oatmeal, cardstock, Label Layers 3 die cut; filled in with the stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, "birthday WISHES" sentiment; and dressed up with stamped, in Daffodil Delight and Certainly Celery inks, on Barely Banana and Certainly Celery, cardstock die cuts, flowers and leaves.  Don't you just adore the detail in these images?!  Yum!  A piece of cheesecloth adds a tad more texture and completes the look.

That gets us started, y'all!  But don't forget to stop by the rest of the team members' blogs to see what they've cooked up, just for your viewing pleasure.  Also, help us welcome this month's amazingly talented Guest Designer, Christina Maclaren.  Please be sure to leave her lots of love.  Then, we'll all be back, tomorrow, at the same time and places, to show you a little more of what else Dawn has cooked up for us this month.  Thanks so much for peeking in!  Be blessed!

Gorgeous card Jinny! That fancy lacey border stamp is beautiful and the stamped die cuts look so perfect like letter pressed chip board. The yellow and green just jump off the page. I could stare at this for hours and still see more I missed.. the stiching, gauze... sigh....
