WPlus9 December 2011- Love You More

December 1, 2011

Hey there, everyone!  Welcome to the December/January release for WPlus9!  We are going to be featuring some really fabulous love themed projects this week, which will give you plenty of time to get inspired for Valentine's day....while still being able to put them on your Christmas wish list!!

Tonight we are featuring the stamp set called "Love You More".  Here is a little bit of information about the set:

Love You More
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 19 stamps; 2 word art images and 17 mix-and-match sentiments and images
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for just $19
 I went with a non-traditional color scheme for my card, and chose different tones of aqua, plus some neutrals.  While these happen to be my favorite colors, they are also perfect for that special guy in your life....I am sure he will appreciate not getting something in pink & red! :)  I have created this for some challenges as well, which will be linked at the bottom of the post.  Here is what I came up with!
"Love Montage" supplies: 
Cardstock/Buttons: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Two: Breeze 6x6 paper pad)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Love You More set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Mixed Media: leather) 
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Seam Binding: The Cat's Pajamas
Twine: May Arts
Flowers: Recollections
Jewel: Doodlebug Designs
Glitter: DecoArt
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Steel Dies: My Favorite Things (doily), Papertrey Ink (scalloped border) & WPlus9 (heart)

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut aqua damask paper slightly smaller, then adhere to the front.  Cut a strip of aqua dotted paper and adhere to the right side.  Cut two doilies from ledger paper, then cut one of them in half.  Cover them in glitter, and adhere to the polka dotted strip.  Thread three buttons with twine, and adhere to the middle of each doily cut.  Cut a tag from vintage cream cardstock, then distress ink the edges.  Stamp the sentiment montage to the tag front.  Cut the heart from houndstooth paper, then stamp it and add a jewel.  Adhere the heart accent to the stamped tag.  Cut a scalloped edge from matching houndstooth paper, then layer a strip of lace to the top of it.  Adhere the entire strip to the right side of the tag, then adhere the tag to the card front using dimensional adhesive.  Tie a double bow from cream seam binding, and adhere to the top of the tag.  Accent the middle of the bow with three aqua flowers to finish.

Be sure to check out what Dawn and all the other design team members have created for "Love You More".  I know that it will be full of eye candy!! 
Be sure to join us again tomorrow night when we introduce another new stamp set....that can be mixed beautifully with a previously released set.  Gotta love when you can freshen up the older product in your stash!! Have a great rest of your day! ♥♥♥

Until later,
~Lea L.
