Wishing You

Sunday, January 8, 2017

Today I've pulled out a set that I haven't used yet.  I've had it for awhile, but it arrived right before the holiday season and it was put aside for more Christmas card and tag making.  It's called Scandinavian Prints from Neat and Tangled.

I love creating patterns and this is the perfect set for that.  The combinations are unlimited. 

Once I had my pattern planned out, I decided to make two at once.

When finishing off the card, I wanted the pattern to really be the focus.  I added a simple banner and sentiment to each card.

For You On Your Special Day

Saturday, January 7, 2017

Hi!  I'll be on the WPlus9 Blog today sharing a card I created with tons of WP9 products past and present and a tip for getting your mojo flowing again. 
I had enough leftovers from that project to create this card too!

I'm working on building up my birthday card stash, but this sentiment could be used for other occasions as well.  I pulled out an older set called Quilt Prints to stamp this background.  Love it!  It pairs really well with the Happy Wishes florals.

 I curved the sentiment on my acrylic block to follow the curve of the circle die cut.  Most of the flower and foliage die cuts are positioned on the circle, but some are falling and trailing down the front of the card.  I tucked in a little bird die cut from the Birds and Branches Frame Die.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll click on over to the WPlus9 Blog to check out my other card!

It's almost a new year!  Just a one more day and it'll be 2017! Before then, I wanted to take a look back at 2016 and share a few of the cards that were the most fun for me to create and send this year!  Whether  it was the excitement of creating with a new product or for a special occasion, these were the cards that stand out for me. Thanks so much for visiting me this year.  I look forward to sharing more in the coming year!
