Hi bloggers! Welcome to Day 1 of the WPlus9 April/May 2012 Release Previews. Today we're introducing, Damask Doilies, Onsie Twosie, and Background Builders: Knit. I have two cards for today's previews, so let's get started!
For my first card, I'm using Onsie Two-sie . It's a super cute baby set. We can all use new baby sets. Just lately, it seems most of our friends are having babies! So I know I'll be inking up this set a lot.
I also used the Background Builders: Knit in this card. I can never get enough of background stamps. I often find myself building a background panel instead of just using patterned paper. So this set will be a perfect addition to my collection...as well as in yours!!! :)
I layered some WPlus9 labels and adhered my onesie over it. And YES, this set comes with dies! There are several images and sentiments to help you build your own onesie!
I added a little bow to my panel. Then above and below my Background Builders: Knit panel, I stamped these super cute number images. (also from the set) I can see myself using them a lot. They don't have to be used just for your baby cards.
I also die cut a banner and stamped Welcome Baby on it repeatedly. The banner die is also part of the release...but more on that later! :)
For my second card, I used the same layout but went with a more soft and shabby chic card. I used Damask Doilies and heat embossed it onto patterned paper. Then I punched out a strip of patterned paper using a Martha Stewart edger punch and layered some lace and ribbon over it.
I die cut a label and stamped my sentiment on it. Then I adhered it over the ribbon and added a flower and crocheted butterfly for embellishment.
I stamped the smaller doilies on the right side of the label as well to balance off the flower, ribbon and butterfly.
I hope you enjoyed that. I'll be back for Day 2 of the previews tomorrow. Don't forget to make your way to the other WPlus9 girls...they have more inspiration in store for you!
