WPlus9 August Release {Day 1}

Friday, August 1, 2014

Today is Day 1 of the August Release.
Dawn is sharing  images of all of the new stamp sets and dies today on the WPlus9 Design Blog. Then, we will be sharing projects using the new sets and dies until they are available for sale on August 5, 2014.
 
Dawn has designed sets for this release with beautiful images and one-of-a-kind sentiments that would make a great addition to even the most well stocked craft room.
 
 
Today I chose to share a new stamp set called Strictly Sentiments 5.
This set has got you covered for just about any celebratory occasion: birthday, congratulations, wedding, new job, weight loss, encouragement, etc.  My project today also features a new die set, Papel Picado Companion Dies.  These dies coordinate with a new stamp set, but as you can see they can also stand alone.

Papel Picado Companion Dies
Available 8/5/14

                                                                        
I created a custom sentiment for this card by first stamping the 'Hip, Hip Hooray' and then masking off the 'Celebrate' and only inking the 'It's Your Day'.
I love that it rhymes!
 


 
I created my background using the WPlus9 Ink Refills in the colors Sweet Gelato, Wild Mango, Mojito, Ocean Drive, Lake House, and Bloomsberry.  A little drop of each of my craft mat, spritz with water, mix, and paint over the stencil.  After my stripes were dry I die cut the scalloped 'flags' using the Papel Picado Dies and used one as my focal point and several others to create a fun border.  I know a certain 2 year old who will love these bright colors!
