Showering You with Love w/Joni + a Sale

Hello Everyone, Joni here sharing a cute card using the old but goodie Party Animal stamp set and companion die. Valentine's Day is over, but those you love should be celebrated all year round. Don't you think? Who doesn't like to be reminded of how much they are loved?

And these two cute giraffe are a perfect way to show your affection.

To begin, I stamped my images onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.

Then, I created my background using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, and Worn Lipstick. Next, I splattered the background with water using paint brush to create the background effect.

For added interest I die-cut the "love and hearts" from Love Showers Layers. I also used the Love Showers stamp set.

Here's just another look all adhered together.

Aren't they adorable? I hope you enjoyed!

Speaking of affection...we've been hosting 20 Days of Sales to show our affection and appreciation for all of you. And it's time to announce the next sale!

February 15, 2018 thru 11:59 p.m. EDT February 19, 2018 we are offering 20% off all in stock inks. No coupon code necessary. All discounts will be applied to items once they have been added to your cart. Sale can not be applied to previous purchases.

Lollies that POP w/Kara

Hello! I hope you all have been enjoying the new products released this month. These stitching dies are so fun and versatile and the new PURE COLORDye Ink colors are so vibrant!

Some of the Stitched Details Die Collection is sold out, but don't worry, they're exclusive to Wplus9 - not limited edition. We are expecting a restock at the end of the week and will continue to restock as long as you guys want them! Be sure to head over to the store and click the "notify me" on any items that are out of stock. You will receive an email when they arrive. (Be sure to check your your spam folders)

The first project I created when I received these new goodies was this project that features mainly the Sucker For You die collection. I just love all of the options available in this set to customize these lollipops.

On a few of the dies I chose to add stitching - which is super simple and fun to do - and on the others I added color to the die cuts using some of the newly released ink colors. The bows, the sentiment, and the swirl on the lollipop were colored with V.I. Pink and Queen Bee PURE COLOR Dye Ink. I even colored the pink panel with the pink ink! I only added ink to the areas that would be peeking out from behind the main white panel so I didn't waste any ink!

I wanted them to resemble one of those edible cookie arrangements, so I placed the lollipops into a 'basket' using one of the dies from Stuck On You. Instead of adding stitching to the basket I used the holes as a guide for adding rhinestones in a zig zag pattern.

I hope you're feeling inspired today and thanks so much for stopping by!

Guest Artist Feature: Jennifer McGuire

Hello and welcome! We are excited to have another special Guest Artist for Wplus9 today.


Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

Today we have the very kind and talented Jennifer McGuire sharing several projects with us featuring our newest collection of dies - the Stitched Details Dies. But, we kind of have an extra special treat as she's giving us a two-fer. As I mentioned, she's created quite a few projects and will be sharing with us how to create this little darling here.

Be sure to watch the video to see how she turned the Plush Friends Pup die into a full card. She's sharing a lot of tips on hand-stitching, how to keep the stitches clean looking on both sides of the project and how to "hide" your finishing stitches to name a few.

In the video she gave us a peek some of the other projects that she is sharing over on her blog as well, so be sure to head over there and check them out!

A great big "THANK YOU" to Jennifer for spending some time with us today! And a great big "THANK YOU" to you for stopping by!

Stuck On You and FEB 2018 Release Review

Hello! I've got several cards to share with you today featuring the newly released Stuck On You die.

Dies are one of my favorite crafting supplies. With a little creativity, you can really stretch them and use them in so many clever ways.

For this card, I die cut my cactus and pot from white cardstock, left the die cut in place in the die and then inked through the open center of the die. This left me the white border around the outside and created what looks like a stamped and die cut image.

Like the other dies in the Stitched Details Die Collection, the stitching is optional on several of the designs. Here I opted to used the stitching detail dies and added a little bit of stitching to both the cactus and pot. For the background I stamped a pattern in Lime Light, Queen Bee and V.I.Pink using Borders & Backgrounds 4. If you'd like to see exactly how this is done, check out the video down below where I give a demonstration on how I created this card as well as go over all of the new release items in detail.

Next, I wanted to share a fun way to incorporate felt into your cards. I kept this design very simple as the tactile element that the felt adds is really enough to carry the design.

I die cut both my cactus and pot as well as a rectangle using our 4 Bar Stitched Rectangles Die. I stitched the cactus and pot to the cream rectangle using the stitching holes cut by the dies. Then I stitched all around the edges of the cream rectangle using a backstitch.

I used Stick It to adhere the wool panel to a Kraft card base. I really like Stick It for adhering larger areas of felt to my cards. It's the easiest to use and most secure that I've found so far.

And finally, I wanted to share the cards that I created in the video above. These were actually conceptualize and created on the fly while filming the video. My intention was only to share how easy it was to create stencils from your dies....and well, one thing led to another and I ended up creating these two cards.

Man, how I wish it was that easy to come up with a design all of the time! I started by die cutting one of the cacti from acetate to create a stencil. I then inked through the stencil using Lime Light to create and all over tossed pattern. I die cut the flower from fun foam to create a DIY stamp and stamped it in V.I.Pink.

For both designs I added the details to my cacti using a .3 Copic Multiliner. I loosely traced around the edges of each cactus and flower in the card above, and did not in the card below. Instead I added a bit of clear Wink Of Stella to each cactus.

That's all I have for today, but be sure to stop back by tomorrow for more!
