Hello Dear Friend

Well, Hello!  The little robins have returned to our yard even though there is still a little snow left on the ground. 

I made this sunny card to share on the WPlus9 blog.  This yellow guy is just the cutest.  He's from a set called All Year Cheer.

I tried sponging on some clouds in the background using Bo Peep ink and the Landscape Border Dies as a stencil.  The color softened as it dried and it made the 'clouds' less visible, but I like how subtle it is.  I think next time though, I'd allow some ink to dry before adding more so I get a stronger color variation from one ink pad.

The sentiment is stamped on a circle cut using the Love Mom Layers Die and the adorable bow id from Sucker For You!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  See you next time!

WPlus9 Sympathy Lilies

Hello! Welcome back.  I still have one more project that I created for the March 2018 WPlus9 Release.  This one showcasing the new Sympathy Lilies stamp set and coordinating dies.  The stamp set contains one large floral image perfect for coloring.  It also includes a few simple, but really appropriate sentiments that you could give to anyone.

The die set contains two dies, one for the large floral spray and one for the word 'prayers'.  I also used another die that is part of the He Is Risen die set.  It's this awesome stitched border die.  I positioned it three times on the left side of the black panel and ran it through my die cut machine.  It adds a subtle texture and it's one of my favorite things from this release!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  We are in the midst of a kitchen remodel again, {different house} and all of our time and energy is being spent there at the moment, but it'll be worth it!


Modern Calla Lilies

Hey Guys! Today I have a project to share with you featuring the new WPlus9 Modern Calla Lilies.  Gorgeous set!  I love how some of the images are just of the flower heads from above.  It makes creating bouquets so easy and authentic looking, especially with the coordinating dies.

I created my bouquet cascading out from an oval window created by the Basic Labels Die.  I backed the window with black for contrast, as usual, and added a black sentiment.  The 'thanks' is part of the Basic Greetings Die set.

Dawn is also sharing a look at Modern Calla Lilies on her blog with a video very soon.  Check it out!
