Hello! I’m excited to be here today to share a couple of cards with you featuring some of the newest Wplus9 products.
I also wanted to highlight a couple of my favorite – and most used – Simon Says Stamp products as well.
I used the new Wplus9 Tossed Florals Background Die to create a subtle tone-on-tone textured background. This intricate die creates a tossed pattern of florals with a lace-like appearance. When used tone-on-tone like this, it gives almost a faux letterpressed look.
I started by die cutting three panels of the floral background. I used one for the background of each card, and the third to cut little floral clusters from and color with Copic Markers.
For both cards, I used the Wplus9 No One Else stamp set for the sentiments stamped in Wplus9 Warm Wool ink onto a circle die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Die.
For the second version, I replaced the stamped “friend” with the Simon Says Stamp Painted Friend Die. By cutting three of these and stacking them one on top of the other, I was able to keep the monochromatic feel and create enough dimension and shadow to make it stand out from the rest of the card.
I embellished each with the floral clusters that I cut and colored from the extra Tossed Florals Background panel.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and are inspired to try it yourself!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Dawn for being our guest!
