June 2011 Release Day 2: Pile It On & a Video

Welcome back to day 2 of the Wplus9 June Release! Did you get a chance to check out the Design Team's projects yesterday? Those ladies are amazingly talented! If not, don't worry, we've got more to show you today.

First up, a fast and fun party invite.

This card is full of style and mail friendly. For the front of the invite, I used the Pile It On steel rule die and October Afternoon's Schoolhouse and 5 & Dime patterned paper collections. On a side note, I believe OA has single-handedly converted me to a patterned paper lover! Fantastic color and patterns. Just love them. OK, back to the card. The Pile It On die includes a group of 3 pennants, making it easy to cut multiples and finish an invite like this in a snap. For my sentiment, I hand cut out a little banner, stamped "Join Us", inked the edges and added a little movement before I adhered it.

For the back, I trimmed out a panel 1/4" smaller than the base. On the panel I stamped the journaling line included in Pile It On 4 times. (I stamped two lines for the "Where", this is where I like to add the RSVP number or any special instructions). I added "For", "Where", and "When" under each line using the sentiments also included. I finished it off by repeating the pennants across the bottom. I just love how sophisticated and mature this looks in spite of using the pennant banner.

Next up...a fun card to send to your girlfriends that you haven't heard from in a while.

I won't go into too much detail on this one...because you can see and hear all about it below (now available in HD):

Watch above or watch at YouTube.
