WPlus9 October 2011- Full Reveal

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!  Today is the full reveal of the October WPlus9 stamps that will be for sale tomorrow!  You can head over to Dawn's blog to see the stamp sets in their entirety...I think you are going to just LOVE them!!  I know that I do!

I wanted to showcase that these Christmas themed stamps don't have to just be used for the holidays....and I happened to pair them with "Season of Thanks".  That is one of the things that I really love about WPlus9 stamps...you can often mix and match them to create exactly what you are looking for!

I created my card for quite a few challenges today.  I used Mojo Monday sketch #209 to help with the card design.  By adding a pumpkin to the card, it fits Stampin' Sisters in Christ #109- Fruits challenge.  I used the fall/pumpkin themed inspiration photos from Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: Treat Yourself, The Shabby Tea Room #82, Stamptacular Sunday challenge #132, Cupcake Inspiration challenge #130, and Our Craft Lounge #85.  It also fits the Autumn/Changing of Season themes for Totally PaperCrafts challenge #86 and The Stamping Boutique challenge #16.  Here is what I created!
"Wishing You Blessings" supplies: 
Cardstock/Scalloped Die: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: Glitz Design (Vintage Blue: Floral, Laced with Grace: Polka)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Fair Isle, Christmas Wishes & Season of Thanks sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: honey, leather, ochre, topaz)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (Antique Linen)
Seam Binding: The Cat's Pajamas
Twine: May Arts
Buttons: Fancy Pants
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock, and distress ink the edges.  Diecut a scalloped border from orange dotted paper, and adhere to the right side of a yellow floral block.  Sand the edges and adhere to the card front.  Stamp the border to the left of the paper block.  Distress ink a block of cream cardstock, then matte on dark brown cardstock.  Stamp the frame, sentiment and acorn it, and then adhere to the card front.  Tie seam binding around the upper left corner of the card.  Tie a double bow from the same ribbon, thread a button around the middle of it using twine, and then adhere to the the front.  Stamp the pumpkin and leaves, cut out, and layer to the lower left corner of the stamped block.  Tie a small bow from twine, thread a button around the middle of it, and adhere to the top of the leaves.  Thread another small button with twine, and adhere to the right side of the stamped frame to finish.

Don't forget to check out what all the other WPlus9 designers have to share today! I am sure it will be a treat! 
I also have a WCMD Halloween themed card challenge taking place on my blog as well!!  You could win a WPlus9 stamp set just by participating, so I hope to see some Halloween projects from YOU on the link list!!  CLICK HERE for the challenge post, and I can't wait to see what you create!! ♥♥♥
