Playing with some new goodies


So, I placed my first order with WPlus9 designs a couple of weeks ago and ordered this adorable floral set called Fresh Cut Floral (stamps and dies). I finally got them yesterday, and since I didn't have to work today, I played with them in my craft room this afternoon.

I decided to play along with the current Monday Mood Board at Wplus9. (I've seen online friends playing along with this... and now that I have a Wplus9 set of my own, I can join in on the fun!)

Here's the Monday Mood Board:


I love the yellows, pinks and greens! Here's the card I made:


To start, I layered some Crate Paper woodgrain paper (I'm down to my last sheet of this again-- after I bought out the last sheets of it from my LSS!) over some Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream Cardstock. I diecut my Lawn Fawn Summertime Charm canning jar from vellum and stamped on it with versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. For the label, I masked off the "handmade by" label from PTI's Knit Bits stamp set and stamped it on some vintage cream cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 set.

For the flowers, I diecut two the dies twice from the vintage cream cardstock and then just had fun stamping them all out. Then I played around with arranging them on top of the jar. (I've decided that I totally prefer paper flower arranging to the real thing!)

Here's a close-up:


Thanks for looking!

Beautiful card. And oh-oh! I've been trying to be good lately and take a bit of a break from buying stamps, but I don't know if I can resist this set any longer.
