Love Frame with Joni

Hello Everyone, Joni here using some of the new released products from Wplus9.

To create the background, I started by distressing an A2 card base with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Fossilized Amber. I then created a few "random" dots using Copic Markers. For the frame, I distressed another piece of card stock with Evergreen Bough Tim Holtz Distress Ink and die-cut it using the new 4 Bar Stitched Rectangles Die.

Next, I stamped the banner image from Be Merry Sentiments with gray pigment ink from Fresh Ink in Birch. Next, I stamped the "love" sentiment from the same set with Wplus9 PURE COLOR in Black. The cute deer images were stamped using the Santa's Reindeer stamp set and colored with Copic markers and die-cut the companion die.

After I assembled my card, I also added some Diamond Stickles and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins, and added the "sending" sentiment, also from the Be Merry Sentiments stamp set.

I hope you guys enjoyed my card today! Until next time...Thank you so much for stopping by!

Christmas Village Scene with Kelly

I don't know about you guys but I am loving our newest release, and over the weekend, I had an idea I just couldn't get out of my head. With me it almost always does!

I kept thinking about those old romantic Christmas pictures, you know the ones that have snow covered villages with an enormous town Christmas tree? Well, since I couldn't shake it I figured I'd better get busy making it!

I didn't concentrate so much on the copic coloring this time as much as I did the layout so the card would make sense. You can see what I mean in the video below.

I think the card concept is a ton of fun but I do wish I had went darker. I feel like that "glow" I was going for would have been much more apparent if I had been a bit bolder with my color. Lesson learned for next time. :)

Have you picked up anything from the new release yet? What are you making?
