WPlus9 June 2012- Fresh Picked

May 31, 2012

Hey there, everyone!!  Welcome to the start of another release week....I've been a busy gal these past few days!!  Tonight marks day 1 of the June 2012 WPlus9 release, and tonight we are showcasing a new stamp & die set called "Fresh Picked".  If you love berries and sweet sentiments, then this is the set for you!!  Here is a little bit of info about the stamp set and dies:

Fresh Picked
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 22 high quality photo-polymer stamps; 1 frame image, 12 berry building images in two sizes, and 9 sentiments
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $21
Fresh Picked Companion Dies
  • coordinates with the Fresh Picked stamp set
  • four separate dies wired together that can be easily snipped and separated
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $8
Label Layers 5 Die
  • coordinates with the Fresh Picked stamp set
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $9
What I love about this set, is it doesn't include just one type of berry in it.  It has a strawberry, a raspberry {which I featured tonight}, AND blueberries!!  Tonight I created a sweet little thank you card, that is full of pink tones and light green.  Here is what I made!
"Sweet of You" supplies:
Cardstock: WPlus9 (Oatmeal)
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found 2 "Blush" collection)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: berry, magenta, zen garden, celadon & Mixed Media: honey, leather)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Lace: Webster's Pages
Pearls: Michael's brand
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

1. Make A2 card from oatmeal cardstock. 
2. Cut floral paper slightly smaller, distress ink the edges and adhere. 
3. Cut a strip of lace and adhere to the bottom.
4. Cut two strips of striped paper, and notch the left end of the pink strip. 
5. Distress ink the edges of both strips, stamp the sentiment to the pink strip and layer on the lace.
6. Diecut the label, leaves & raspberries from cardstock, then stamp the images & sentiment.  
7. Adhere to the right side of the striped paper strips, then accent with pearls to finish.
