Hello there, friends! I'm so very excited to be bringing you a special post today--I'm Guest Designing with WPlus9 for their February/March release! Today's the first day of previews, and let me tell you, you are going to be smitten with all of the new stamps and dies coming out this month.
Today we're featuring two new stamp sets and their companion dies:
Very Vintage Florals
Very Vintage Florals Companion Dies
Scalloped Border Die
I've managed to use all four on my first card. :)
Very Vintage Florals coordinates with the previously released Very Vintage Greetings and its companion die, Label Layers 3. I used the die to cut a window in a kraft panel, then stamped the frame and sentiment from Very Vintage Florals onto the white card base.
I die cut and stamped the floral images in green, then stamped the flowers again in red and trimmed them by hand.
The new Chantilly Trim set has the most gorgeous lace borders, which coordinate perfectly with the new Scalloped Border die. I added a scalloped edge to the kraft panel and stamped one of the lace borders along the bottom.
Cardstock: WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Papertrey Ink (Kraft)

Ink: Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Lucky Limeade), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools: WPlus9 Design Studio (Very Vintage Florals dies, Scalloped Border die, Label Layers 3 die)
For my second card, I wanted to do something completely different. The Chantilly Trim borders made me think of beautifully decorated wedding cakes, so I set about creating one of my own.
After trimming the cake layers from cardstock, I stamped a lace border along the top edges, adhered the layers with foam tape, and embellished them with black gems.
I turned to Very Vintage Greetings for my sentiment, adding a hand-trimmed flag and black gem to draw the eye.

I've had so much fun playing with these sets, it was hard to choose just a couple of cards to share with you today! Needless to say, there will be more to come. :)
