WPlus9 June 2011 Release Day 3: Pile It On

May 29, 2011

Hi there, everyone!!  So, have you been enjoying the WPlus9 June 2011 release so far?  Are you thinking about all the wondrous things you will be able to do with the new set, "Pile It On"?  I think it has been such a fun release so far, and I love checking out what all the other designers do on their cards!  It just goes to show that the same stamp set will never look the same because everyone's styles are so different!

For tonight's card, I used the banner dies that match the stamp set, and then stamped the ice cream cone inside each one for some color and pattern.  I then diecut a tag (using a non WPlus9 steel die), and added a fabulous sentiment from the Pile It On set.  This set went just perfectly with the carnival theme collection from Glitz Design called "Afternoon Muse".

I used the Viva la Verve! May 2011 Week 5 sketch to help with the design of my card.  I also created it for Crazy 4 Challenges #89, which is to create a card showing a favorite vacation spot or summer activity.  Well, I don't know about you....but I LOVE going to the fair every summer!  And last but not least...I created this as a sample for the Get Your Glitz On Challenge #2: Clustering.  There are only a couple more days left to enter a project in for the challenge, but the winner will get the entire Afternoon Muse collection sent to them!!  So, if you've got some Glitz goodies and some time...check out the challenge and get to creating!!

Instructions:  Fold orange cardstock in half to make card base, and ink the edges.  Sand the edges of two paper blocks, and layer together to the card front.  Sand the edges of a vintage image diecut and a cardstock sticker, and layer to the front at opposite angles.  Adhere a yellow ruffle over top of the seam.  Layer together the rhinestone stickers, and tuck a cardstock ticket sticker to the right side of it.  Stick a pin through the left side of the sticker cluster, and then adhere to the card front.  Accent with a large pink jewels, and a strip of small clear jewels.  Diecut the pennants and the tag from vintage cream cardstock, and then stamp them.  Thread them with twine, and adhere to the upper left corner of the card.  Tie two bows from the twine, and accent each end of the banner with them.  Add a clear jewel to the left bow, and an orange paper flower to the right one to finish.
