WPlus9 {Formal} Introduction

Monday, April 14, 2014

Today Dawn at WPlus9 has an introduction on her blog.
She is letting you know a little more about me and debuting my first projects as a new DT member!
She has chosen a few projects to share with you today and then the rest of the week she'll turn over the blog to me to share the rest with you.
There's a lot to share, the release was that good!
Stop by Dawn's blog to check out the projects and say hello!
Thank you so much to those of you have already stopped by to share your kind words and support.
Know that I am honestly equally inspired by all of you!

Colorful Landscape

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I've wanted to make this card for a long time now
after seeing {this} and {this}.
I die cut a bunch of triangles.
Then I scored them down the middle and folded them.
While they were folded, I snipped off varying amounts from each triangle to create the different sizes.
Love it, don't know how I'd mail it, but I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today :)
It's so warm and beautiful today that we took a break
from laundry and tiling to take a Sunday Drive!

Cardstock: PTI Lavender Moon, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss, Sweet Blush
Stamps: WP9 Quite Like You
Ink: Versafine Onyx
Dies: PTI Triangles

Wplus9 {PURE} Color Comparison

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Raspberry Fizz
Scarlet Jewel
I've said it before and I'll say it again....
I love dye inks!
These WPlus9 Pure Color Dye Inks are no exception, but I'm finding that not all dye inks are created equal. 
I have been using these colors on projects I've shared recently
 and letting you know what I like about them:
Smooth, , solid, even coverage
Deep, rich color
Stay wet long enough to heat emboss
Unique colors
I find that the colors are unique, yet work with other ink, cardstock, and
 embellishments I already have.
Many of you have commented that you think the colors are beautiful,
but wonder how they compare to the PTI inks you already have.
Do you want/need them?
The short answer is, yes!
  None are perfect matches which is great to fill in some gaps in your color collection.
 Yet, they work beautifully back to those color families
Here's a side by side with PTI inks that are in the same family.
You can see that the WPlus9 inks are deeper and more opaque which a feature I really love.
No splotchy images with these inks!
Summer Sunrise
Melon Berry

Ripe Avocado
Simply Chartreuse
Spring Moss
Plum Pudding
Autumn Rose

Lake House is my favorite color, but then again I'm partial to blue ;)
Enchanted Evening
Spring Rain
Aqua Mist

These two are the most unique. 
I didn't have anything in my stash to compare them to!
I hope this helps give you an idea if the WPlus9 inks are for you!
Last week Dawn introduced you to Joni Nina Andaya and shared her amazing  projects all week long using the WPlus9 April Release.
Tomorrow starts my week.
I hope you'll stop by Dawn's blog and check it out!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
