Hello there! I'm back with a release post just as promised! :) Welcome to WPlus9's October Release Previews - Day 1. You are going to love what Dawn has come up with this month!!! I have quite a few projects so I'll make the intro short. :)
Today we're introducing Seasonal Sentiments Die, Pretty Patches: Christmas, Folk Art Flurries, and Clear Cut Stars. Whew! That was quite a long list! Let's get started then! Here's what I came up with for today...
Let's start with my little card. I used Pretty Patches: Christmas and Folk Art Flurries on it. I stamped the circle label and a snowflake inside. Then I die cut the circle. I stamped "Joy" on a piece of cardstock and hand cut it. Then I adhered it over the circle label. I used a snowflake die underneath as a mat. More on the snowflake die in the next few days of the release. :)
I stamped the LOVE and HOPE directly on the card base, as well as the longer sentiment on the bottom. I added a strip of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and tied a ribbon underneath it. I didn't have to add anything else to the card. The stamps and dies all worked beautifully and they're the stars on the card. :)
My second project is a new product that Dawn is going to start to sell over at the store. I was sooo delighted when I saw it! You can never have too many packaging options as far as I'm concerned. I love pretty packaging! And alterable ones....oh my goodness!!!
For this project, I used Folk Art Flurries. I stamped them all over the pillow box. Then I tied a strip of twine around it and attached a piece of cardstock with my sentiment on it. I continued my sentiment using the Seasonal Sentiments die. I added a mini clothes pin to the tag and adhered a die cut snowflake on it. The possibilities for this product are endless! So excited!!!! :)
For my third and final project for today, I have another card. We have another alterable product that's about to grace the WPlus9 store. It's a thin chipboard that cuts very well with your existing dies. I used it with my Clear Cut Stars for this card.
I die cut the circle chipboard. Then placed a Clear Cut Star to die cut the center. I painted it white, sewed the edges and added glitter to it.
I used Pretty Patches Christmas on the medium tag from Timeless Tags, stamping the sentiment in portions to fit the tag. I also die cut the word love from Seasonal Sentiments Die and adhered it to the side.
I also die cut spread out some snowflake die cuts for a little pop of white against the red.
Ooooh!!!! I almost forgot!!!! We have a Guest Designer for the month of October! Please help us welcome Anya Schrier! She makes magic with WPlus9 stamps and dies!!!! I absolutely adore her work!
