Wplus9 December 2013 Release Day 2

We are back for Day 2 of our December Release! Thank you so much for joining us! 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 December 5th at www.wplus9.com as well as at many of your favorite retailers.

If you are just joining us, be sure to start at Day 1 to catch up. But for now, let's get to today's introductions, shall we?

Valentine Wishes

  • is a 4x6" clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 13 individual stamps: 8 images and 5 sentiments
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $14
Valentine Wishes Companion Die

  • contains 3 individual open centered dies wired together that can be easily separated
  • coordinates with the Valentine Wishes stamp set
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $10

This set is perfect for the chalkboard trend, which doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. I decided to create two variations of the same design. The first version shows how quick and easy to this set can be.

Using our White Pigment Ink, I stamped the open banner image first and then added the floral wreath. The wreath is all one image with an open spot for the banner. Stamping the banner first will act as your base line and makes sure that your final image will be straight. I stamped both sentiments, also included in Valentine Wishes, in white as well. I decided to add the little heart in Cupid's Bow Pigment Ink at the last minute. I love how the pigment ink looks like colored chalk.

All of the "chalky" details were added using a white colored pencil. I mimicked some of the shapes a little offset and smudged it just a bit with my finger. I love how it makes it look like it was a mistake that was "erased". The drop shadow effect on the "always have, always will" sentiment was created by re-stamping the sentiment a little offset with Versamark.

Another option for the wreath is to add colored flowers.

Before stamping the wreath, I used the corner of a baby wipe to remove the ink from the flowers. Then I added them in using the individual flowers included in Valentine Wishes. I wanted to make this set quick and easy to use, but also include the option to easily make it a little more customized too. I also used the matching die to create a chipboard banner and added a border using the vine and heart images from Heartfelt Holiday.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Valentine Wishes (available 12/5/13), Heartfelt Holiday (heart & vine) // Dies: Valentine Wishes Companion Die (available 12/5/13) // Ink: White Pigment Ink, Cupid's Bow Pigment Ink // Cardstock: White

This is also a great set for a more layered or shabby-chic look. Here, I did more selective inking and paired it with some gorgeous papers from My Mind's Eye.

I just LOVE how well this image pairs with the super feminine papers. I chose the "Hugs and Kisses" sentiment from Valentine Wishes for this card, added the solid banner and matching die, and used our XOXO Border die as an accent.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Valentine Wishes (available 12/5/13) // Dies: Valentine Wishes Companion Die (available 12/5/13), XOXO Border Die // Cardstock: Oatmeal, Kraft

For my last card, I wanted to put all of the focus on that beautiful font.

I used a lot of water and little Distress Ink to paint a backdrop for the sentiment. While the paper was still damp, I tore the bottom edge. I just love watercolor paintings where they leave the natural torn edges of the watercolor paper, and I wanted to emulate that here.

To add a little interest, I embossed the bottom edge of the inside of the card in gold using the stripe from Country Charm. I also embossed the sentiment in gold just to tie it altogether.
