WPlus9 February 2012 Release Week - Day 1

Happy Friday, everyone!!  How has your week been going?  Are you looking forward to the weekend?  I've had a good week so far!  I had a salon day this week...it takes a lot of work to keep this curly hair straight.  Ha!!  I also researched and found a new place to workout, and I am SO excited about it.  My current gym membership is at an actual gym, and I only do Oula (which is dance fitness).  My current gym doesn't offer as many Oula classes as I would like, and they are at inconvenient times.  Enter Downtown Dance Collective.  Oula every single day, better times....LESS MONEY.  Can't even tell you how excited I am!  Tomorrow we are heading to Butte to see my family....who is taking us out to dinner for my birthday at Lydia's.  YUM!  Probably going to have to head to the Acoma for martinis too....

Well, today starts release week for WPlus9, and we have some fabulous stamp sets & dies to share with you....and this just in- some INK!!  Here is the information on what we are sharing today:

 I created a pink & brown card filled with cute layers of flowers!  These matching stamps & dies make layering really easy, and adds beautiful dimension to the card without too much bulk.  This card is definitely flatter & more simple than most of my cards...but I love it!  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock.
2. Cut stripe paper and adhere to the middle.
3. Stamp the floral border to the top, and the lacey scallop border to the bottom.
4. Stamp the chantilly lace trim to pink chevron paper, then diecut the scalloped border to it.
5. Trim to fit the card, then layer to the front with a folded doily.
6. Diecut the label from kraft carstock, then stamp the frame & sentiment to it.
7. Layer the stamped label to the middle of the card, then accent with stickers.
8. Diecut and stamp all the flower & leaf layers, then layer to the card front as shown.
9. Accent each flower with a tiny pearl to finish.

The white ink that I used is a new pigment ink that WPlus9 is releasing...and it works fabulously!  It covers beautifully, doesn't over-saturate your stamps....LOVE it!  You are going to want this white ink...I promise!!  The other two inks that aren't listed in my link list above are Tsukineko aloe vera and Colorbox berry pigment, which was a limited edition ink.

I love the sweet lacey borders & beautiful flowers that these stamp sets include!!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the designers have created for you today!

And don't forget....you can comment to win each day of the release on Dawn's blog!  Read her blog post each day for commenting instructions!! I hope you enjoyed me sweet little card today!

Until later,
~L.
