But of course you may use more than one Wplus9 products if you wish.

Just to remind you that the Wplus9 June 2015 release is fast approaching and this is a perfect way spend your win, awesome right?

And here is my take on the sketch, to get you started. You know I am fond of making faces on my card like my past post "Fun Cards for Kids" HERE. But for this card I created a face on one of my favorite die set from Wplus9 Clear Cut Stackers: Pears. I used the larger pear die for this. Don't you think that pear on this card is adorable with that sweet little face?

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Little Bits, Hand Lettered Thanks  // Dies: Clear Cut Stackers: Pears, Love Shower Layers (tiny hearts, tag frame)Unforgettable (bow), Love Mom Layers  // Cardstock: WhiteCoal Mine

To begin, I created a card base using the Wplus9 White cardstock in an A2 size card and cut a striped patterned paper same as the card base and adhered. Next, I distressed only the bottom of some white card stock using Distress ink in Spun Sugar. I then die-cut a panel from it using the Love Mom Layers.

The tiny hearts were die-cut from the Love Shower Layers die set. The sentiment was from the Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set that was heat embossed in white on Coal Mine card stock.

To create the shaker, I used the tag from the Love Shower Layers die-set and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. For more info on how to create a shaker here's a link from Dawn.

For the pear, I die-cut the shape from the Clear Cut Stackers: Pears, and used the circle/dot images from Little Bits to create the eyes. I also added some white dots on the eyes using a white Gelly Roll pen for character. The freckles, eye lashes, and lips were hand drawn using a regular black gel pen (pilot 0.5).

Next, I watercolored the pear using distress inks. Finally, I added the tiny bow from the Unforgettable die set that was also been watercolored and added tiny sequin on top then adhered on the pear.

I hope I have inspired you to create more happy faces using your die sets.

Now its your turn to post your creations using the link below. Remember you have until May 29th 11:55 p.m. to post your wonderful projects to win a $20 Store Credit from the Wplus9 Store.
