WPlus9 April/May 2012 Release - Group Post

***This is my second post for today. Scroll up to view my CASE Study Challenge 85 post.***

Hello again! Today is the WPlus9 April/May 2012 Release - Group Post. What did you think of the stamp sets, dies and impression plate featured yesterday? Impressive aren't they?! I had a lot of fun using them. So much fun, that I actually made two cards for the group post today.

Let's start with the first one. This card is inspired by Betsy Veldman. You know...the way she uses different stamps and puts them together to make something wonderful? I tried my hand in that, and this is what I made with it.

I combined images from Super Star, Label Layers 4 and C'est La Vie to create my card. I also used their coordinating dies to create my layered look. If I can't make my frilly cards, then they have to be, at least, layered. lol! I think card making should take a bit of effort to make. Because if you finish a card in 5 minutes...then where's the fun in that? But that's just me. :) I like to play around with my supplies.

I layered on each label and banner with some foam tape. I also inked the edges to break off all the vintage cream that's been layered onto each other.

Next up, of course I had to make a girly-girl card. I took Background Builders: Knits and stamped one of the images repeatedly in pink. Then I added more layers of cardstock and patterned paper over it.

I stamped the flowers from Mother's Day Bouquet and hand cut them. I adhered them over these layered circles that I had stamped with Damask Doilies and a butterfly image, also from Mother's Day Bouquet.

Then I directly stamped my sentiment on the patterned paper panel. I sewed the edges on both panels to add texture to the card. I also layered the lace trim and twine.

Here's hoping you enjoyed that! Make sure to pass by the other WPlus9 DT members. Want to win some prizes? Easy peasy! Just leave messages on the WPlus9 DT members blogs! Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you all again soon! :)
