Wplus9 June/July 2013 Release Week Day 1

Release Week is here! For those of you that are new to Wplus9, we will spend the next couple of days getting up close and personal with the products that we will be releasing this month. All previewed items will be available for purchase on June 5th at www.wplus9.com as well as at many of your favorite retailers.

As usual, we have lots of new product to share with you. Please, allow me to introduce our June/July 2013 Release.

I am so excited to share this stamp set with you. Fresh Cut Florals is a fun mix of classic flowers with a modern twist. The really wonderful thing about this set is all of the 2 and 3-step stamping possibilities. You can get as detailed or abstract with them as you'd like.

Fresh Cut Florals

  • is a 4x6" clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 35 high quality photo-polymer stamps; 30 flower building images and 5 sentiments
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $14
Fresh Cut Florals Companion Die

  • contains 10 individual dies wired together that can be easily separated
  • coordinates with the Fresh Cut Florals stamp set
  • Approx. Measurements: (A) - 3/4 x 5/8", (B) - 3/4", (C) - 7/8", (D) - 1/18 x 1", (E) - 3/4 x 1 1/2", (F) - 1/2 x 1", (G) - 5/8 x 3/4", (H)- 5/8 x 3/4", (I) - 1/2", (J) - 1 x 1 1/8"
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $8

You all know how much I love to pair opposites, or add an unexpected element to a design. That's what I've done for my first card by pairing the soft colors in my bouquet with the stark black striped background.

Can you believe those are stamps?! And they are deceptively easy to do. Here's the breakdown on creating the lilac/hyacinth flower.

Instructions:
  1. Stamp the stem first. This will help you line up the flower portion using the negative spaces on the stem where any petals "overlap".
  2. Stamp the bottom layer. For the lilac, I've stamped the darker color first. But for most of the flowers you'll want to stamp the lighter color first so that the darker color overlays it in the next step.
  3. Stamp the top layer.
  4. Each flower has a "center" that you can add if you'd like. Stamp this last.

Easy, right? And talk about an impact. For the center pink flowers - peonies maybe - I used the same color for both layers. For the bottom layer I inked the stamp, stamped it onto scratch paper, and then stamped it onto my die cut without re-inking (known as stamping-off, or second generation stamping). I then added the top layer in the same color but without stamping off.

I added both the diagonal striped background and my sentiment (also from Fresh Cut Florals) in black to finish this one off.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Fresh Cut Florals (available 6/5/13), Country Charm | Dies: Fresh Cut Florals Companion Die (available 6/5/13) | Cardstock: White, Ballet Slippers

I just love this next card. It's perfectly showcases how this set can make even the simplest of designs "pop".

I used two of the circles from the Lacey Layers Companion Die. I centered the smaller circle inside of the larger circle and sent it through my die cutting machine. This created a "wreath" to encircle my sentiment. LOVE that font. Whimsical, yet elegant at the same time.

Then, I just embellished the wreath with a little cluster of die cut and stamped flowers.

I also wanted to share with you the beautiful backgrounds you can create with this set as well.

I decided to create some custom monogrammed A-2 cards and matching seals. I stamped the roses in our Cupid's Bow Pigment Ink. I love the unconventional blue (Lake House Pigment Ink) leaves with black accents. I think it takes it from something that would look vintage to a little more modern design.

To package the monogrammed cards, I used a glassine bag wrapped with a bow from the Cupcake Wrapper Accessories Die, which I'll show you more on tomorrow. Super simple set, and all images came from the Fresh Cut Florals stamp set.

This next set is one of my favorites. Old fashioned milk bottles are everywhere right now. I think they may just be the next Mason jar.

Milk & Cookies

  • is a 4x6" clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 25 high quality photo-polymer stamps; 17 images and 8 sentiments
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $14

  • Approx. Measurements; (A) - 5/8 x 3/8", (B) - 1 x 2 1/8", (C) - 2 5/8 x 3/16", (D) - 1 1/8 x 1/2", (E) - 3/4", (F) - 3/4 x 3/8", (G) - 1 1/8 x 5/8", (H) - 1 1/8 x 1", (I) - 5/8 x 1/2"
  • will be available for purchase April 5th for $9

I think this set is perfect for masculine cards. Let's face it, men really are just big kids...and we know how much they love milk and cookies!

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Milk & Cookies (available 6/5/13) | Ink: Cupid's Bow (available 6/5/13) | Dies: Milk & Cookies Companion Die (available 6/5/13) | Cardstock: White, Sandstone (available 6/5/13)

I also included some fun sentiments in this set. Like this:

And this:

I just love clean and simple cards.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Milk & Cookies (available 6/5/13) | Ink: White | Cardstock: White, Sandstone (available 6/5/13)

But...there is so much more you can do with this set too. I've included lot's of little images to make this set go even further. How about a cold glass of lemonade?

I tried to create a little lemonade stand. I used our Scalloped Border die to create the awning, and a little Kraft card stock stamped with a woodgrain pattern for the table top. And I just LOVE those little straws!

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Milk & Cookies (available 6/5/13), Fresh Baked, Woodgrain Sihouettes | Dies: Milk & Cookies Companion Die (available 6/5/13), Scalloped Border Die | Cardstock: White, Green Acres, Kraft
