Summer Citrus

Monday, July 17, 2017

Hey guys! I love these new WP9 Citrus sets.  When I received the new release products I went straight for these even thought the release included florals this month!  I love those too, but these images just looked so cool and fun to play around with and they are!

The Citrus Background Builders make a background like the one above so quick and easy to make!  All of the images in the Summer Citrus set work perfectly together with this background set.  Because there are so many line images they're great for emboss resist techniques like this and this.
The new Basic Greetings dies are perfect for just about any card.  The die set includes the words: friend, thanks, smile, and hello.

I originally shared these projects on the WPlus9 Design Blog.  I go into a bit more detail on how I made these cards if you're interested in reading that, check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week!

You're The Best

Friday, July 14, 2017

Hey! I'm back again with the second card I mentioned in yesterday's post.  This card was created the exact same way just with different images.  This time I used the new Summer Citrus set from WP9.

For these citrus colors I used PTI cardstock and dye ink in the colors Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, and New Leaf.  I used the same Basic Greetings die set for my sentiment, but this time used the 'thanks' die.  I added a secondary sentiment from Basic Labels stamped in white pigment ink.

Thanks again for the inspiration Laura!

Thanks for stopping by again today.  Have a great weekend.  I'll be adding projects to the Friday inspiration File soon.  Keep your eye out for that...Week #321!

Just Because {Laura Bassen Inspired}

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Hi! I have a card today inspired by the very talented Laura Bassen.  I'm sure you all know her.  She is well know for her beautiful use of rainbow colors in her designs, but she does so much more!  She recently made a card that just made my jaw drop; beautiful soft colored die cuts on a bold navy background.  Then yesterday she did it again and I couldn't resist trying it out with the new WPlus9 release products!
 For my design I used Southern Summer Florals 2.  I die cut the flowers and leaves in several colors of cardstock.  I stamped the second step of the multi-step stamp on the die cut in a coordinating dye ink color.

I positioned clusters of flowers and leaves in the corners and cut off any bits that hung over the edge.  I added a few more on the sides and trimmed them the same way.  In the center I used a Basic Greetings die cut as well as a stamped sentiment from Basic Labels.

Such a striking design I had to make another using Summer Citrus.  I'll be back to share that one soon!
