Wplus9 Feb./Mar. Release: Day 2

Friday, February 21, 2014

Evening, friends!  I'm back to share a little more of what Wplus9 Design's February/March Release has to offer.  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping the "happy" sentiment, in Brocade Blue and Brilliant Blue inks, on the White, cardstock, card face.  I then cut a circle from a piece of ink distressed and stamped, down its right edge, in Brilliant Blue ink, with the stars, ivory, text, patterned paper; backed it with a sheet of vellum just to soften the look; and secured it, to the card face, with brown-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The balloon strings were then stamped in Jet Black ink; topped with a couple of die-cut, from color-coordinating, patterned papers, balloons...
and anchored to a die-cut, from woodgrain, patterned paper and White cardstock, gift which had its bow glittered and was overlaid with the partial, "happy" sentiment.  The latter was die-cut from Kraft cardstock.
The remainder of the "TO HELP YOU CELEBRATE THIS VERY SPECIAL DAY!" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a blue-framed, journaling card, whose right end was trimmed into a pennant before being adhered just below the die-cut bits and overhanging the bottom right edge of the card face.
Color inspiration for this card came from ScrapFriends' Colour Challenge #22.
I've got one more release-inspired creation to share, with you all, at the same time tomorrow.  Until then, thanks so much for peeking in, and have a terrific start to your weekends!
