Wplus9 December 2013 Release Day 3

It's day 3 of Release Wseek and we have our final introductions before the full reveal tomorrow! 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. We have 1 more stamp set and companion die to introduce. Ready? Let's go!

Coming Up Roses

  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 24 individual image building stamps
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $21
Coming Up Roses Companion Die

  • contains 7 individual dies
  • coordinates with the Coming Up Roses stamp set
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $13

I absolutely love this set! It's a gorgeous multi-step stamp set that's super simple to use. Each bloom is similar to the "Fresh Cut Method" - there is a solid base stamp and a detail stamp - so you there really isn't any "lining up" to worry about. Add the companion dies and the filler flowers that come in this set and you've got even more options! For my first card I used just the stamps and a little masking.

I created a little cluster in each corner using the medium and small blooms. I stamped the base layer in Cantaloupe (Memento Dew Drop) and then add the detail layer in Fresh Peach (Hero Arts). I wanted to keep the card vibrant with a strong contrast, so I stamped the sentiment (Valentine Wishes) in Black. I love how bold it is.

Stamps: Coming Up Roses (available 12/5/13), Valentine Wishes (available 12/5/13) // Cardstock: White

Next, I wanted to showcase the large stem of roses included in the set. Measuring at 3 1/2" tall, it's big enough to be used as an all-over background pattern or as a focal point like I've done here.

I've always loved how different colors of roses carry different meanings. I pulled out Defining Words to create some "love" and "friend" cards. For the "Friend" card, I stamped the stem first and then added the three roses (grouped together on one stamp for easy placement) in Cantaloupe, and then stamped the detail layer (also one stamp) in Cantaloupe as well.

For the "Love" card, I used Real Red and Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!). I added a little drop shadow to both using a Copic Marker. Super simple.

Stamps: Coming Up Roses (available 12/5/13), Defining Words // Cardstock: Oatmeal, Cupid's Bow // Other: A2 Oatmeal Envelopes

Now, I loved this set before. But, once I started with the faux watercolor technique...I became kind of obsessed! This next card is my favorite of the release!

This was so much fun! And SO EASY! I used the same technique I showed you on Day 1, with one difference. After I stamped the detail layer, I used the Copic Colorless Blender again. Except this time I was more selective and used it to blend the edges of the detail layer after stamping.

I used the large and small roses along with little Baby's Breath-ish flowers to create my floral arrangement. For the leaves, I used the base layer and shadow layer and used the Copic Colorless Blender to add highlights to make the leaves look ribbed. I wanted a subtle background, so I stamped the circle background from Borders & Backgrounds 2 in Versamark. Finally, I added the "congratulations" sentiment from Fresh Cut Wreaths.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Coming Up Roses (available 12/5/13), Fresh Cut Wreaths (available 12/05/13), Borders & Backgrounds 2 // Dies: Coming Up Roses Companion Die (available 12/5/13) Cardstock: White

One more "watercolor" card and I swear I'll give it a rest. Maybe. I wanted to show you the large Baby's Breath (which I yet to stamp in white!) and the vase also included in Coming Up Roses.

I created a cheerful little vase of birthday flowers. I stamped the roses in Cherry Red and Orange (Memories) and went to town with the Copic Colorless Blender. I love how even though they are the same exact images, the results are different every time. I couldn't exactly duplicate it if I tried. So every one is an original! To finish off the bouquet, I snuck in a little flower from More Fresh Cuts.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Coming Up Roses (available 12/5/13), More Fresh Cuts (available 12/05/13), Basic Banners // Dies: Coming Up Roses Companion Die (available 12/05/13), More Fresh Cuts Companion Die (available 12/05/13), Basic Banners Companion Die // Cardstock: White

    ReplyDelete
  105. Just lovely, Dawn! The flowers and the sentiments are so beautiful. Your cards are a breath of Springtime! Dawn Y.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Your stamps are great Dawn, but I am unimpressed with your Design Team. I know there are many, many card makers out there that are regularly making stunning cards with your stamps & dies. They are the ones that made me check out your site, not any of the Design Team. It's not just the poor cards, but the terrible blog posts they are writing. A teacher should know how to use a comma!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I just love the roses an the dies to go with them. And I love the colors you used to build the flowers: so beautiful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Absolutely gorgeous cards! These new stamps are fabulous! :)
