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!

  1. This tone on tone card is so beautiful! I love that all this detail doesn’t get lost by keeping the color so simple. Just gorgeous!

  2. What beautiful cards!! I love the texture of the diecutting of white in the background and then the sentiment with a few colored flowers around it just to make it pop!! Even though the background is white and the flowers are colored, your eyes are still drawn to the background, I love it!! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Love the tone on tone back ground and the flower just give a bit of color pop around the statement. That is a beautiful card.

  4. I love your card – the embossing, the pop of colour on the flowers. It’s very sweet but very elegant at the same time. Thanks so much for sharing. Love it!!!!
