WPlus9 February/March Release Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of previews of the February/March release from WPlus9 Design Studio!  Today we're featuring two more gorgeous stamp sets and a collection of dies:

Lacey Layers
Lacey Layers Companion Dies
Embroidered Bouquet

And as if new stamps and dies weren't enough, this month there is a new product being introduced that is a must-have:  white pigment ink!  Oh my goodness, I thought I had my go-to white ink all figured out, but this new ink from WPlus9 is amazing!  Just look at the coverage and crisp detail I got using it to stamp a background with Embroidered Bouquet onto kraft cardstock.

I used one of the new Lacey Layers dies to cut a window in the kraft panel, stamped the coordinating image from Lacey Layers in green, then added a sentiment from a set previewed yesterday, Very Vintage Florals.  That cute little button stamp is part of the Lacey Layers set, too.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Papertrey Ink (Kraft)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Embroidered Bouquet, Lacey Layers, Very Vintage Florals)
Ink:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Lacey Layers dies)
Accessories:  jute twine

My next card was difficult to photograph, so I apologize for the glare.  I used multiple images from Lacey Layers, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder on WPlus9's black cardstock.  I added a sentiment from Spring Post on a strip of cream cardstock, using one of the circle dies included in the Lacey Layers Companion die set to round the end of the strip.

Don't let the reflection fool you--these images are incredibly detailed and stamp beautifully!  And this card looks pretty amazing in real life, I must say.  :)

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Black), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Lacey Layers, Spring Post)
Ink:  Versamark, Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Lacey Layers dies), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Stampendous (clear embossing powder), button, ribbon

You know the Design Team will have some amazing samples to share.  They always do.  :)

Thanks so much for joining me again today!  Stop by again tomorrow for Day 3 of previews!

Two totally different looks going on here Christina! The kraft looks sort of country casual, and then bam the black embossed - says put on your dancing shoes - we're going out! Beautiful contrast!
