WPlus9 August 2014 Release {Day 2} + GIVEAWAY

Saturday, August 2, 2014

 
Welcome back for Day 2 of the WPlus9 August 2014 Release.
If you haven't already stop by the WPlus9 Design Blog to see images of the entire release.
Leave a comment while you're there to enter her giveaway.
Now that you've seen it all, what's your favorite?
 
Today I have a set to share {and GIVEAWAY!!} that is so unique;
 I loved it from the minute I saw it!  Immediately I thought of my friend, Jackie!
 
WPlus9 Supplies
Stamps: Lucky Stars {available 8/5/14}// Ink: PURECOLOR Dye Ink Refills Bloomsberry, Sweet Nectar, Wild Honey, Mojito, Ocean Drive, Lake House //Cardstock: White, Black
 
This first card uses the same technique I shared yesterday using PURECOLOR Dye Ink Refills and a stencil.  Seems sweet and innocent enough, right?
 
 
But when you look a little closer you will see what I mean.
The sentiments are so funny and perfect for making cards for your best friends!
 
 
Lucky Stars
Available 8/5/14
$14 USD
 
 
My friend, Jackie and I text each other quite often.
I thought it would be fun to create a card featuring text messages
back and forth between us for her upcoming birthday.
 
Kara: "I Can Always Count On You..."
Kara: "Especially When I Need An Alibi"
Kara: "We're A Special Kind Of Crazy"
Jackie: "SERIOUSLY!"
 
She would agree! Lol!
 
 
Since the theme is stars I created my starry sky using the
pastel marbling technique that I have shared several times before.

WPlus9 Supplies
Stamps: Lucky Stars {available 8/5/14} // Dies: Conversation Bubbles //Cardstock: White, Black, Ballet Slippers, Sweet Gelato
 
I hope you have enjoyed this set as much as I have.
Dawn has been kind enough to allow me to host a GIVEAWAY on my blog!
She is offering up one Lucky Stars set to one of you.
All you have to do is leave a comment here on this post by midnight on August 4, 2014 and I will randomly choose one winner and pass your information on to Dawn so she can get the set out to you.
