Hello, hello! Today Lea Lawson and I are teaming up to share a little more inspiration featuring the Birthday Basics Die. Our styles are so different that I thought it would be a great way to showcase the versatility.
Lea took the soft layered route, incorporating a ton of feminine pastels and plenty of sequins.
Speaking of sequins - which are popping up everywhere - we have the scoop on THE BEST sequins around. And, we have an exclusive discount just for Wplus9 fans!
Pretty Pink Posh has the most gorgeous colors in stock. And did you know that several colors give you the option of flat or cupped sequins? Awesome! Paulina has been generous enough to offer a 10% discount off of all sequins just for us - to share with all of you. Just enter the code WPLUS9PARTY at checkout.
Since we are focusing on trends this week, I decided to go a little more bold and work in the "artsy/grunge" look that is making a resurgence into main stream. I thought enamel dots were a perfect compliment to this look.
Stamps: So 80's, Whole Lotta' Happy // Ink: Wild Mango, Sweet Nectar, Bloomsberry Dye Ink (available March 2014) // Dies: Birthday Basics Die, Modern Numerals Die // Cardstock: White, Black
We've had so many requests for the So 80's stamp set since we retired it, that we've decided to bring it back for a special limited run. Stay tuned in March 2014 for it's return. The splatters and paint strokes in this set were perfect for layering behind the "birthday" die cut. The bright streaks of color (thanks to our upcoming PUREColor Dye Inks) push the white forward and make it pop.
Be sure to stop by Lea's blog for full details on her card. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a great start!
