12 Giftable Tags of Christmas 2016 #6

Hello all!  Back with another Christmas Tag!  This one features WPlus9 Friends For All Seasons - Fall.  The cute bear with the scarf looked pretty holiday-ish to me so why not?  The little guy is colored with copics, cut out with the matching die and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment, from the Simon Says Stamp Happy set, is stamped and white cardstock and is a little base for the bear.  The tag is cut with the largest ofWPlus9 Timeless Tag dies.

Stamp Layering

Hello all !  Today's project is another clean and simple design for Simon Says Clean and Simple Challenge.  Again, I am using the Simon Says Stamp / WPlus9 Many Thanks Stamp Set.   This is a layering stamp set so I got to do some experimenting with the different stamps and color combinations.  The sentiment is also from the Many Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped with yellow pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Clean and Simple Thank You

Hello all!  Today's project is an entry in Simon Says Clean and Simple Challenge....

Products from a few different companies are used in the card.  First, I ink blended some Distress Ink on the background using the Crafters Workshop Mini Chunky Chevron.  Next, the sentiment, from WPlus9/Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks is stamped with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The triangle border is from Simon Says Stamp Flip Flop Season set and is also stamped with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Essentials by Ellen Warm Fuzzies and All Inside

Today's project is an entry in the Essentials by Ellen Pin Sights Challenge - here is the inspiration photo.

AugustPinsights

I decided to use my newly arrived Essentials by Ellen Warm and Fuzzies set along with the Essentials By Ellen All Inside Set.

Hugs 8.22.16

First, I colored the bear with copics, inspired by a post by Dawn Woleslagle on the WPlus9 Blog.  I wanted to try to achieve a lighter color for the bear - it always seems like my critters end up being too dark.  I liked how it turned out!  After cutting him out with the matching die, I adhered him to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock that I had masked off and loosely watercolored.  The greeting that the bear is holding is from the Warm Fuzzies set and was white heat embossed.    The Hugs greeting is from the All Inside set stamped with black versafine ink embossed with clear embossing powder.

WPlus9 Unforgettable

WPlus 9 Unforgettable is one of my favorite stamp sets!  I colored one of the elephant images for Kathy Rac's recent 30 Day Color Challenge.  Here is the finished card after I added a background, balloon and sentiment.    For the background, I used a cloud die to cut some masks and then blended on some Distress Ink.  I wanted the card base to match the front panel so I used the same ink to color the edges.

Distress Ink Watercolor Stamping


Today's project is inspired by the Online Card Class - Watercolor For Cardmakers Exploring Mediums and is an entry in the current Wplus9 Sketch Challenge.  I love using the Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals set with distress inks to do watercolor stamping with distress inks.

Lucky Stars...

 

For today's project, I wanted to try to create a galaxy background.  I found a great video by Dawn at Wplus9 demonstrating doing a galaxy watercolor background.    Here is my attempt at a galaxy background using the Wplus9 Lucky Stars set.  

I used the SSS Stitched  Rectangle dies to create a frame for a shaker card.  I love how it turned out (thanks Dawn) except in my picture there is an unfortunate placement of a green sequin!

Unforgettable

Hello all!  Today's projects feature watercoloring and the WPlus 9 Unforgettable Stamp Set.  This is one of my favorite sets ever!

In the first version, below, the elephant is a little darker and with a pale blue background.

Unforgettable 1 8.28.15

 

The elephant is a little lighter in the second version (I think I like this one a little better) with a few of the stars from the set stamped in the background.   Love the stars!

Unforgettable Shaker Card

Today's project is an entry in the WPlus9 Get Sketchy Challenge #1.  The challenge is to make a card inspired by the sketch below.  

 

Here is my take on the challenge.  

Unforgettable 5.27.15

 

I used the WPlus9 Unforgettable Stamp set and matching die to create a shaker card.   The super cute elephant is colored with copic markers and die cut.  The background is inked with the SSS Medium Dots stencil and white pigment ink.  The shaker was made using my fabulous new WR Memory Keepers Fuse Tool (happy mothers day to me!)

This project will also be entered in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals

Hello all!  For today's card I took a stab at watercoloring with distress inks and WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals.  I watched Dawn's video on YouTube about a hundred times :) then gave it a try.  It was fun to do and turned out pretty well for a non-artist like myself! It is a little lopsided, though. The vase is part of an open circle stamp.
