You are going to love the detail in these large, full card front frame dies. They are wonderful alone, but amazing when paired together! I took my inspiration from paper cutting, specifically the 3-dimensional ones with layers of detail that build upon each other, and came up with this.

I started with a single base of the Birds & Branches Frame cut from our Soft Honeydew card stock. This die has five additional dies to further embellish if you'd like. I decided to highlight some of the flowers on the branches by adding them in Cashmere. I didn't waste time trying to exactly line up the flowers to the base. The suggestion of flowers already exists thanks to the silhouette, I just wanted to reinforce it.

I then die cut the Foliage Frame from Soft Honeydew card stock and another layer in vellum, adhered them together with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. To add further dimension, I attached the this layer to my card base with foam tape.

The branches provide the perfect spot to nestle two little love birds. The results are so striking in real life and I decided that the message was pretty obvious and left it sentiment-less. The final design reminds me of a shadow box.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Dockside Backgrounds // Inks: White Pigment Ink // Dies: Birds & Branches Frame (available 04/05/14), Foliage Frame (available 04/05/14) // Cardstock: Cashmere, Dove Grey, Soft Honeydew

Next, I wanted to take it a little more bold, and add even more depth to the design. The colors are still soft and neutral for the most part. But the stark contrast in the details really makes it pop.

Instead of doubling up the outer Foliage Frame, I opted to double the branches. I cut two Birds & Branches Frames from white card stock and then layered them on top of each other. I cut the top and bottom off of the bottom frame so that I could offset the branches and put them exactly where I wanted them. To add a little depth, I added two foam squares between the layers and adhered the edges of the frames together with Tombow Mono Multi Glue.

The extra foam squares allowed me to add the birds on the branches at different depths and levels. There is plenty of space built into the design to add your sentiments as well. For this one, I kept it nice and simple and stamped mine in the lower right hand corner. Yes, I was holding my breath at this point, praying not to make a mistake! LOL

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Pretty Patches: Apple // Dies: Birds & Branches Frame (available 04/05/14), Foliage Frame (available 04/05/14) // Cardstock: Cupid's Bow, Dove Grey, White

Next, I wanted to show you how versatile these frames can be. You could use them beyond just a frame - stenciling or misting, partial die cutting, spotlighting - just to name a few.

I decided to use just a portion of the Birds & Branches Frame, omitting the the outer frame altogether.

For the sentiment, I used the new Hand Lettered Hello stamps and die. Now, I did not hand letter this myself. Just wanted to clarify. LOL But it is a font in a hand lettered style... This set is so versatile, and you'll be seeing more of it this week. I have used it in some way with every other product being released.

Because the design is intersected in several places, it all stays together when using just a portion and you don't have to do any tedious piecing back together.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Hand Lettered Hello (available 04/05/14) // Dies: Birds & Branches Frame (available 04/05/14), Hand Lettered Hello Die (available 04/05/14) // Cardstock: Nautical Navy, Dove Grey, White

And finally, I had all of these left over pieces laying on my desk and wanted to see if could put together something quickly. And you know what...it worked! And no stamping!? This might be a first EVER for me.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Dies: Birds & Branches Frame Die (available 04/05/14), Foliage Frame Die (available 04/05/14) , Timeless Tags 2 // Cardstock: White, Sweet Gelato, Dove Grey
