October 2015 Release Week: Day 2

Hello everyone, welcome back to the Wplus9 October 2015 release. It's Joni, and I'm here to introduce the new stamp set and dies that I designed - Holiday Hugs and the Anastasia Tag Die.

Holiday Hugs
3x4" Clear Stamp Set
$6 USD

Holiday Hugs Companion Die
Steel Rule Die
$8 USD

Anastasia Tag Die
Steel Rule Die
$18 USD

To begin my card I first white heat embossed the sentiment from Holiday Hugs.

Next,  I watercolored the sentiment panel let it dry and added the new Red enamel dots from Wplus9. Then I stamped the stamp image on a regular white cardstock, colored with Copics, and die-cut the image with its coordinating die. I added the foam tape on the back of the die-cut then adhered.

Next, I added some twine at top of the card to finish off the card.


For my second card, I stamped the birch tree using from an old time favorite set Winter Woodland and distressed the background with Distress ink pad in Evergreen Bough after masking the trees.


Once the whole top panel dried, I stamped the sentiment "sending warm Holiday Hugs" in Versamark ink, and heat set it with gold embossing powder.


Next, I die-cut other white cardstock piece using Landscape Border dies to create the white slope behind the bear and the girl. For the final touch I added some liquid pearls in white opal of the dimension of snow on the card.

For my final project of the day, I created a tag using the new upcoming Anastasia dies with Holiday Hugs stamp set. I first die-cut the tag without the die-cut center and distress the center with Distress ink in Peacock feather. Then I die-cut another tag this time with coordinating oval center die to create a window for the image.

Next, I stamped the bear and the girl on a white cardstock colored with Copics and die-cut. I adhered the bear/girl with foam tape for added dimension along with the window tag on top of the other. I also added some die-cut boughs from the new upcoming Holiday Boughs stamp set. For the sentiment I white heat embossed on black cardstock, cut, and adhered on top of the tag.  I added some new Wplus9 red enamel dots on top of the die-cut bough to finish off the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed these new products. Let's see what the rest of the design team has been up to!
