It's Day 3 of Release Week! If you missed day 1, you can catch up here. Today we are going to be looking at the last of the new products we will be releasing this month. All previewed items will be available for purchase on February 5th at www.wplus9.com as well as at many of your favorite retailers.
Today we have one last stamp set and companion die to introduce. It's a simple set packed with possibilities!
There is nothing more timeless or classic than a ribbon banner. And with it's resurgence in design thanks to chalkboard art, I thought now would be the perfect time to create an easy to use set for all occasions.

I am so excited to have this set in my stamp collection. There are 23 different sentiments to fill that banner with! There are a few main sentiments in a fun script font, and then several supporting sentiments to choose from for each main sentiment. Of course, I couldn't wait to try out the chalkboard technique.
I decided to pair it up with Embroidered Bouquet, can't get enough of that set. And of course those blooms were screaming at me for some color. So instead of doing all white, I wanted to see if I could emulated colored chalk. After stamping and embossing, I over stamped just a tiny bit with our white ink. I had to stamp off once though because our white ink is so pigmented it came across too bright when stamped full strength. To add the color, I used pastels and a q-tip. I just brushed over the embossing, no need to be neat about it. It's supposed to look a little messy, right?
And of course, once I was finished, I had a bunch of little do-dads laying everywhere, so I picked up a few, and put them together as a little gift tag using some more of those sentiments included in Written On Ribbon.
Next up, let's take a look at that companion die in action. Both of my samples today are on the simple side. I was feeling under the weather and by the time I felt better, I was running out of time! But thanks to the classic design of this set, it was no problem to come up with something eye-catching in a pinch.
By using the Written On Ribbon Die I didn't have to worry about masking! I used the floral arch from Spring Tags as my base and stamped it in Navy at the top and bottom. I die cut and stamped a few of the flowers using the Very Vintage Florals stamp set and die. I added them to the center of each arch.
I die cut and stamped the banner from Written On Ribbon and added the "Thanks So Much" sentiment along with "You're Too Kind" and "For All You Do".
I matted it with Cupid's Bow card stock and adhered it to a Kraft card base. That's it! Simple and classic. Oh, and that little tag, another "scrap". I added a die cut flower from Very Vintage Florals on top of the blue layer die cut and stamped from Lacey Layers. I then stitched them using red DMC floss onto a tag cut with the Timeless Tags Die. That is definitely making it's way onto a card in the near future!
As I've mentioned over the last couple of days, we will also be releasing a few more consumable items. We are adding three new card stock colors and yes, we are releasing our first ink!
