WPlus9 February/March Release Day 3

Hello friends!  The fun continues with Day 3 of the WPlus9 release previews!  I can't tell you how much fun it has been working with the new stamps and dies, and today's cards are my favorites so far.  :)

Today we are previewing one more stamp set and its coordinating die:

Written on Ribbon
Written on Ribbon companion die

Written on Ribbon has a beautiful folded banner image and tons of sentiments for weddings, birthdays, and more.  For my first sample, I made a gate-fold card with the die cut banner right in the center.

I just can't get enough of this new white ink, so I used it to stamp images from Embroidered Bouquet onto dark gray cardstock.  Love!

The banner and gems look orange, but they are SU's Calypso Coral.  I'm a bit smitten with this gray and coral color combo at the moment.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Basic Gray, Calypso Coral), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Embroidered Bouquet, Written on Ribbon)
Ink:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Stampin' Up! (Calypso Coral, Basic Gray), Copic marker
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Written on Ribbon die), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Michaels (rhinestones)

For my second card, I wanted to use the small sentiments from Written on Ribbon in a different way, so I lined up several wedding-themed phrases on a block and stamped them down the edge of a white card base.



I stamped and die cut images from Lacey Layers and adhered them to a lavender panel, which is popped up with foam tape.  I chose a focal sentiment from Heartfelt Mix, stamping "congratulations" on a white banner and "to the happy couple" below it.


Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Wisteria Wonder), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Written on Ribbon, Lacey Layers, Heartfelt Mix)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray)
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Lacey Layers dies)
Accessories:  Michaels (silver pearls)

Nice!!! i love the gate-fold one.... beautifully stamped!
My first thought when I saw your first card.... that is good coverage! I can't wait to get my hands on the new inks. I've been wanting a good white ink for some time.

Christina, up to your usual standard - brilliant. Congratulations on you guest DT spot. Knew it would come - maybe permanent in future!!!

Lindsey said...

I'm so glad to be the first to comment! I'm sure it will be the first of many. Oh, boy. Where do I start? The gate fold card is absolutely brilliant. This set is absolutely perfect for that! LOVE the colors as well and the rhinestone and pearl placement on both cards is awesome...I always have trouble with that. And I love everything on your second card as well...the paper you created with the sentiments, the layout, the die cuts adhered to the panel to add a bit of extra dimension. Ahh...so inspired by this post!

Lynn said...

I can see why you're using the white ink...it looks amazing. Love how you decorated the inside of the card too!

Renee said...

Beautifully done, Christina! Just LOVE the flowers in the BG on the first card. Fun ribbon image too. Lovely doilies on the second and nice touch with the script on the left panel.

Both of these are amazing Christina, but I really love that second one, just clever use of color and dies!

Perfection! Gorgeous colors, and I adore the background you stamped with the words on your second card!

Jinny Newlin said...

LOVE the fold on that first beauty, and the color of the second... Swoon! Such an elegant, modern, graphic feel! Stunning!

Jeanne J said...

So bold to stamp the white on the black card stock - worth the chance and wow! it packs a visual punch! Love it!

Jean Martin said...

These are absolutely brilliant! I especially LOVE that you made that "door" card! I have to try that next time! :)

JJ Bolton said...

Beautiful Christina! The gray/red combo for your first card is amazing! And you make that background stamping look so easy (and gorgeous)!

The second card is more subtle but just as stunning! Purple is such an underused color:). The tone-on-tone stamping is so elegant. And the custom text background? Just perfect!

Hope you and the gang are keeping safe and warm today!
