WPlus9 September 2011- Class Act

September 14, 2011

Hey there, everyone!!  I hope that you have had a wonderful day so far!!  Today marks three days of WPlus9 inspiration on my blog, using the newly released stamp sets in September!  Considering most kids just went back to school in my area, it seemed fitting that I would start off with the school themed set called "Class Act"...which I just LOVE!!  I wrote a little bit about why I love this stamp set for post on the WPlus9 blog today, so CLICK HERE if you would like to read it!

My card fits some current challenges as well!  It fits the "Back to School" theme for Ribbon Reel Challenge #10, Cupcake Craft Challenge #159, Our Craft Lounge #82, If The Shoe Fits #90 and Delightful Inspirations Saturday's challenge.  It also fits a twine/string challenge for Little Red Wagon #98, and Belli Challenge #126.  Here is what I created!
"A+ Well Done" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (aqua) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: October Afternoon (Cherry Hill: new apron, cookie jar and 5&Dime: wax bottles)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Class Act set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: cranberry) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Felt Apple: Maya Road
Twine: May Arts
Buttons: Fancy Pants
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Spiral Notebook Die: Papertrey Ink
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from aqua cardstock.  Add a strip of star patterned paper to the right side of a striped paper block.  Sand the edges of them, and adhere the block to the card front.  Fold down the upper right corner of the striped paper to reveal the star paper.  Tie a double bow from twine to a green button, and adhere to the folded corner.  Cut a block of apple paper, then wrinkle and sand the edges.  Adhere to the front, and then fold the lower left corner.  Adhere a twine threaded button to the folded edge.  Diecut the spiral notebook from vintage cream cardstock, and stamp the header and numbered lines to it.  Adhere to the card front, then add the felt apple to it.  Stamp the sentiment to a vintage cream strip, and cut a banner end to it.  Adhere the sentiment banner to the apple, then accent below it with jewels to finish.

I hope that you have enjoyed my first WPlus9 card for September!  Come back tomorrow for more, and have a wonderful rest of your day today!! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
