Triple Layer Birthday Cake

Friday, June 22, 2018


Hello!  Summer is here and I couldn't be happier!  Longer days mean more time for all of the things I love: swimming, hiking, crafting...  This newest release from WPlus9 is still inspiring me to create so many fun and unique birthday cards. 


I tripled up all of these fun images and colored the top layer with Copic markers.  I limited my colors to pink and gray to create something a little unexpected for a birthday card.  The subtle colors keep it a bit more understated, but still fun!

 

Build A Birthday Cake

Thursday, June 7, 2018


 
Hello! I'm still playing around with all the new WPlus9 products.  There's just so much good stuff in there to experiment with!  Today I've mixed And Many More with Tropic Fever.  Two sets you might not think would work together, but that background stamp is so versatile.
 

I stamped the background in Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  I sponged on color using Papertrey Ink dye ink.  Their color range is so extensive.  So many beautiful colors to choose from and I pretty much have them all except for a few.  I used Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz and Scarlet Jewel.  To tone the colors down a bit I also sponged on a bit of white over the whole thing.

 
That cake was so much fun to build with the separate stamps included in And Many More.  Hope you enjoyed.  See you soon!

Fabulo'us'

Saturday, June 2, 2018

 
Hi guys! Happy Saturday.  I have a sweet little love card I made using the new WPlus9 Flock Yeah! stamp set as well as a few other new release products.  I always have such a difficult time photographing a card that has large areas of black like this.  I end up with patches of light and dark that I find very difficult to edit out.  I had to get creative to make these look the way they do in real life.  Any tips?

I used gems to accentuate the US in fabulous die cut from the new Fabulous Die.  I colored the letters using the same colors I used on the flamingos.  The banner and sentiment is from the new Oh My Gostrich! set. 

I hope you are having a great weekend so far.  Thanks for stopping by!




And Many More

Monday, May 28, 2018


 
 I love how quick and easy it is to create a fun birthday card using the new WPlus9 set called And Many More.  It works perfectly with the new Happy Birthday Die.  This one would be great for anyone celebrating a birthday, but particularly for a male recipient.
No flowers here!

I stamped the confetti circles in bright, primary colors {Pure Poppy and Summer Sunrise} and used the same ink to color the birthday die cut.


And Many More is one of those sets that you might not immediately realize you need because it doesn't have the flashy images that grab you, but once you start using it you realize it's an extremely versatile set with many must have sentiments and accents that can be used on so many cards, not just on birthday cards!



Summer Time {Free Gift With Purchase}

Sunday, May 27, 2018

 
 
A ton of great promotions going on right now in the WPlus9 Store.  Not only is there a brand New Arrivals, but also Free Gift with purchase of $60 or more and 25% Off Companion Dies!
 
 
The free set is called Summer Time and is available while supplies last.  It includes a few sentiments and accents, but the main focus is this hysterical flamingo image.  I've created this little 'look through a porthole' scene with Summer Time as well as a few other newly released sets: Flock Yeah!, Oh My Gostrich!, And Many More

 
I have also used a few old staples like the 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle Die and Love Mom Layers Die.  I have fussy cut and popped up several elements in the scene and added some fun Wink of Stella for some sparkle.  I love this card.  It's so fun!

 
Thanks for stopping by today!
