June 2011 Release Day 3: Pile It On

Welcome back to day 3 of the Wplus9 June Release! We are having a blast sharing our sneak peeks at our newest stamps set, Pile It On, which will be available for purchase on June 1st at the store. I have been seeing a lot of ice cream popping up in the industry lately, and this set is spot on. Today I've got more CAS styles to share with you from this delicious set.

First up, a colorful card piled high with style.

I used the masking technique I shared with you in yesterday's post and video to create this triple decker cone. I started my sentiment on the front, and then finished it off on the inside with "birthday calories don't count!".

Keeping it very CAS on this next one, I focused on one of the candles included in the set and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

I'm over the moon for this one. Talk about mass produce potential! I started by stamping the candle repeatedly in graduating shades of pink across a horizontal strip of white cardstock.

Then, to frame the strip, I added the the dotted journaling line across the card base, underneath the row of candles. I added my sentiment offset to the right just above the strip.

To finish off this card, I flanked each side of the sentiment with the journaling line again, and adhered the row of candles using dimensional foam.

I loved this layout so much, I created a couple more in blues, greens, and yellows.

Have you seen the digital stamp set Cool Pops that was added to the store earlier this month? This is a perfect economical set for those quick Father's Day Cards and more. I just love coloring them in.

There you have Day 3. I'm so happy to hear how enthusiastic you all are for this set and die. Thank you so much for stopping by each day and for the support you provide with each of your comments!
