WPlus9 October 2011- Group Post

October 4, 2011

Hey there, everyone!!  Well, today is the day!  You can purchase all of the new WPlus9 stamps, and don't forget about the free "Dear Santa" set with a $30+ purchase!!  Such an awesome deal...you won't want to miss out.  For the final day of release week, we have our group post...which I just LOVE!  I love seeing a project from each DT member on Dawn's blog together...so many different styles encompassed!!

I did create my card for some challenges, but I have decided to change my post format and share them at the bottom.  That way it will be easier to see each challenge, and click on the links.  So, just scroll down to see which ones I used!!

For my card- I wanted to combine two of the new stamp sets again- "Fair Isle" and "Winter Wishes".  I get just smitten with winter themed stamps, especially ones with cute little mitties.  Living in Montana, I wear winter clothing far longer than anything else...so I am all about owning super cute outerwear!  So, I love that these stamps emulate how I feel about that!! Tee hee!  Here is my card:
"Sending Warm Winter Wishes" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Lace Trim: Glitz Design (Beautiful Dreamer: houndstooth) 
Stamps: WPlus9 (Fair Isle & Winter Wishes sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: truffle, sky blue) & Tsukineko (Pigment: pixie dust)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Flower: Recollections
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Twine: The Twinery
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Puff Balls: Darice Inc.
Glitter: Doodlebug Designs

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock, then distress ink the edges.  Ink the edges of a brown paper strip and adhere to the left side of the card.  Ink the edges of a pink houndstooth paper block, and adhere to the right side.  Cut a strip of vintage cream cardstock and distress ink the edges.  Stamp the border to it, adhere lace trim to the left side, and then adhere to the middle of the card.  Diecut the doily from vintage cream cardstock, stamp the inside and adhere to the front.  Add three pearls to the snowflake border, and a pearl to the middle of the doily.  Stamp the sentiment to the lower right corner of the pink paper block.  Tie a bow from brown dotted ribbon, and adhere to the left side of the doily.  Cover a pink flower in glitter, and adhere to the middle of the bow.  Stamp the mittens, cut out, and cover the tops with glitter.  Adhere each mitten to a piece of pink twine, put a twist in it and adhere below the bow.  Add two pink puff balls to the mittens to finish. 

Be sure to check out what the other girls have to share for the group post...I know each project is going to be fabulous!  I can't wait to check them out!

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!! ♥♥♥

Until later,
