WPlus9 July 2011 Release Day 2

July 7, 2011

Hey there, everyone!!  Well, today brings on day 2 of the latest releases from WPlus9!!  Today we are sharing another new stamp set, and steel die!  Here is a little bit of information on both of them:

Hope Seed Co.
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 23 stamps; 4 flower images, 18 sentiment builders and 1 border frame
  • will be available for purchase July 10th for just $19
Vintage Envelope Die
  • coordinates with Hope Seed Co. stamp set
  • measures approx. 3.5" tall x 2.75" wide when folded and assembled
  • will be available for purchase July 10th for just $18
This envelope die has so many possibilities, and I can't wait to use it even more!!  For now, I have this sample to share with you!  I used The Sweet Stop Sketch #115 to help with the design of my card.  And I used the Play Date Cafe Challenge #89 {mint, buttercream, taupe}.  My yellow is a bit more saturated than buttercream, but I figure it still works!! Here is what I created!
"Warm Wishes" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream)
Paper: Pink Paislee (Butterfly Garden 6x6 pad)
Stamps/Die: WPlus9 (Hope Seed Co. set & Vintage Envelope die)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: moss green, marigold, chestnut)
Lace Trim: vintage craft supply
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Glitter: DecoArt
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Sand the edges of a green paper block, and adhere to the front.  Sand the edges of a floral paper block, and adhere to the top.  Wrap yellow lace trim around the bottom.  Diecut the envelope from vintage cream cardstock, and stamp the front of it as shown.  Stamp the rose again on patterned paper, cut out, cover in glitter, and adhere to the top of the stamped image.  Stamp the banner on vintage cream cardstock, cut out, and adhere to the bottom of the envelope.  Fold cream ribbon as shown, and adhere to the top of the lace trim.  Fold & adhere the envelope, and then adhere to the top of the pleated ribbon.  Accent with flowers and pearls to finish.
