Hi readers! Happy Sunday! Please join me in a great big WELCOME to another first time guest designer on our store blog, Joni Nina Andaya! Today we’re featuring another great brand; WPlus9.

Hello Everyone Joni here, I am so excited to be guest designing here at Simon Says Stamp. Today I want to share with you the watercolored card I created using the new Wplus9 stamp sets in Grateful Greetings and Autumn Leaves, and the new Gift Card Layers die set.

To begin my card I first stamped the images and watercolored each image using the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 Color Set. For the final touch on the coloring once the images are dry I then watercolored each image with the gold watercolor from the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi to give the gold effects on the images.

Next, I die-cut the watercolors paper using the new Wplus9 Gift Card Layers die set and die-cut the bottom of the both watercolor papers using the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2 dies. For the sentiment I used the Wplus9 Grateful Greetings stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on a vellum paper using the Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. Then I added May Arts Natural Twine to finish off the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed. Thank you so much for having me.
