Congrats Grad

Monday, May 21, 2018


Hey! Graduation is right around the corner and if you live in the south kids are already graduating!  I thought it was the perfect time for a card like this.  Since I work in a High School I could use a few more!


I love this girl from The Crew School Days.  She's the perfect scale for the cap from Smart Kitty.  Sadly that set is retired, but if you have it in your stash they go so well together!  If you have any suggestions for Copic colors that would make strawberry blonde hair, let me know! 


I did a lot of masking on this one to create the giant stack of books.  It was easy to do and came together very quickly.

 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Get ready for a new WPlus9 Release coming soon!

Tropical Thank You

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Good morning and Happy Mother's Day!  I thought I'd hop on and tell  you about a few sales worth taking advantage of today. Spoil yourself whether you're a mom or not!  While I'm here I wanted to share this Thank You card I created for the WPlus9 Blog.  I think a Thank You card is appropriate for Mother's Day too!

Floral Fantasy

Monday, May 7, 2018


I just realized, as I sat down to type this, that there is almost no stamping on these cards.  That's a rarity for me these days.  I just love these though.  The colors of Papertrey Ink cardstock paired with this fabulous Altenew Floral Fantasy die set is just stunning.

I layered up these flowers using dimensional adhesive.  I decided to put the darkest color on the bottom, the lightest color in the middle, and the mid tone on the top.  I loved the way that looked!
 

I played around with several placement options for my trio of flowers, but in the end decided to split them up and create two card designs.  They all looked beautiful together, but I felt they overwhelmed the card.  I think a larger canvas, a scrapbook layout, could handle it and look beautiful.


I used part of the 'Thank You' die cut letters to spell out just the word 'You' and then added the secondary sentiment from WPlus9 No One Else coordinating stamp set stamped on PTI's Double Ended Banner Die.



On this second card I used the circle from WP9 Dreamcatcher to ground my flower, leaves and sentiment.  I added the die cut 'Thank You' from Concord and 9th's Bitty Thank You die.

 
All of my panels were cut using Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Die.  I couldn't live without that one!! 
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed!
 
 

Concord and 9th Wreath Turnabout and You're My Happy

Friday, May 4, 2018

Welcome back for my final Feature Friday with Concord and 9th.  This is probably my favorite bundle of the release! This Turnabout Wreath stamp set contains two beautiful wreath building stamp styles as well as some beautiful sentiments with two font styles.  They are very different, but compliment each other so well.
 

For all of my cards today I started by drawing two intersecting lines on my white card panel.  This helped me to line up my stamp each time I rotated it and stamped a new color.  I chose to use Papertrey Ink Dye Inks for two reasons.  They have a huge selection of colors and they clean up so easily when switching between colors.  There is very little to no contamination of colors.  


For the 'You're A Delight' cards I simply stamped the sentiment in the center of the wreath with black ink.  For the 'You're My Happy' and 'I Just Adore You' I die cut and inlaid black cardstock.  Both sentiment dies are included in the You're My Happy die set.

 
I hope you have enjoyed Feature Friday for the April Release.  Don't forget to check out Nikki and Micaela.  Thanks to Concord and 9th for inviting me to join them this month!
