Today is my final day to share what I have been up since receiving the Wplus9 April 2014 Release products. By now, many of you are starting to share what you have made with these beautiful new products. I have a seen a few and I look forward to seeing more!
This is the first card I made when I received the new release.
I couldn't wait to ink up those beautiful Spring Blooms and try out the PURE COLOR Dye Ink for the first time. If you've visited my blog recently, you know already that I love them and have been sharing some of my favorite color combinations.
I placed the blooms to mimic the flow of the Hand Lettered Hello sentiment, but also left a little spot of the right to stamp 'sweet friend'. I love having these any occasion cards on hand for when I start thinking of a particular far-away friend and want to drop her a note. Even though texting is faster I still send hand written notes and I know they are appreciated.
Nothing but glitter on this next one.
There are many ways to do this, but I will share with you what I did.
I took a piece of white cardstock that was a little larger than the Birds &Branches Frame die and ran it through my Xyron. Without removing the protective film I placed the frame die face down onto the card stock; sticky side up. Then, I ran it though my die cutting machine. After popping out the negative portions of the die, I removed the protective sheet, sprinkled the entire frame with glitter, and voila!
The negative pieces didn't go to waste. I used those to die cut the hearts using the Love Notes dies and the birds from the Birds & Branches Frame die. I popped up everything on a card base that had been sponged with Lake House Dye Ink.
I'm really excited to share this final card with you.
I used the Foliage Frame Die to create a custom frame for my Folk Art Alphabet monogram. And, it can be made to any size you like.
- Die cut frame.
- Measure opposite corners to desired length and trim.
- Adhere at corners.
To hide the seams, I embellished the corners with Spring Blooms stamps and dies.
It's that easy!
I've really enjoyed sharing my projects with you this week. I look forward to Monday when Dawn will introduce another new DT member and we will get to see what she has been working on!
