GUEST ARTIST FEATURE: Lin Brandyberry

Hello, Lin Brandyberry here and I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer on the Wplus9 blog! Wplus9 has something for everyone, from cute to elegant, and everything in between.

So when I started to think about what I would make for this spot, this Quilt Prints stamp set was one of the first things I thought of. It is a pretty simple set, but the elements in it allow us to make a million variations using it! I went looking through my Pinterest file on quilts, and saw one that used seaglass colors, and that's where I started. I ended up making 2 cards with this set.

For my first card, I filled my panel with the stitched pattern, stamped in a medium grey.

I used 3 shades of blues, punched with a bright spring green, and stamped the large diamond shape in horizontal lines of the same color, varying the pattern as I stamped across. I trimmed the panel down a tiny bit and then ran it through an embossing folder to give a real quilted, dimpled feel. Then I attached it to a light blue base, and added 5 layers of the Hand Lettered Hello die cut along with a stamped panel.

Here's a closer look to see the little patterns this stamp set has; I used a gingham, a floral, a houndstooth, and a dot.

For my 2nd quilt card, I left some white along the edges, adding an inner border, and used the same colors once again.

And a closer look to see the individual patterns, this time using 2 prints and a solid.

One of the things I like best about Dawn's company are her beautiful florals, so I knew I'd have to have a play with them for my last card today. I used a couple of her newest “modern” sets and combined them for my next card.

It was easier for me to stamp, color, and cut out my individual flowers, rather than trying to do a masked card this first time. I'll try that next time!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

~Lin

1 Die 2 Ways with Joni

Hello everyone, Joni here sharing my take on the new Large Butterfly Frame Die.

To begin, I distressed the background panel with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose and then splattered it with water and Gansai Tambi Pearl Color in Pearl Scarlet Red. Next, I die-cut the Large Butterfly Frame Die from White Cardstock and colored it with Copic markers (R81, R08, R59 for dark butterflies and E000, R20, RV23 for the lighter butterflies). For the sentiment I used the Modern Peonies stamp set.

My second card uses the same concept as the first, with a few little changes.

Again, I started by distressing the background panel with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers. Next, I splattered the background with water and Gansai Tambi Pearl Color in Pearl May Green.

For this card, I cut away the frame portion of the die cut and just used the butterflies and colored them with Copic Markers in BG10, BG15, and BG18. For the sentiment I used the Modern Anemones stamp set.

For my sentiment I colored the cardstock with Copic markers to match the color scheme of my card projects before white heat embossing the sentiment.

To finish off the cards I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Fairytale Fuchsia sequins and Peridot Mist.

I hope you enjoyed these two simple cards. Have a great weekend!

Modern Anemones in Pink and White with Yana

Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!

For today’s project I created a friendship card using gorgeous flowers from the Modern Anemones stamp set.

After stamping my images in black alcohol marker-friendly ink onto white paper I went to Pinterest and looked up various colors of anemones. I spotted a lot of white and also a few pink and decided to go with both color options for my card.

I picked several Copic markers for my coloring and used the following:

  • C1 and C3 to color white flower
  • C7 and C9 to color black flower centers
  • RV13, RV11 and RV00 to color pink flowers
  • YG17, YG03 and YG00 to color leaves

I also used the same pink colors to color a banner from the Valentine Wishes stamp set which housed the “You’ve Got A” part of my sentiment.

After using companion dies and cutting all of the images out in my die cutting machine I arranged them on a 4 Bar card base. The background of my card felt a bit too stark so I decided to add some light pink ink blending. I masked the bottom and right edges of my card base with washi tape and used Little Piggy PURE COLOR Dye Ink for the blending.

I stamped the second part of my sentiment - “Friend In Me” directly onto the card base and foam mounted my die cut images on top. Some were adhered directly onto the card using glue, some popped up using one foam square thickness and some using two to create different levels of dimension.

Lastly, I added several dots in black and neon pink using Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Have fun stamping!

Colorful Little Dreamers with Kelly

Hello Crafters! How was your weekend?

We had wonderful weather here, which was a welcome change from the two straight weeks of rain let me tell you.
I may love Spring, but my naturally curly hair does not. Yikes!

On a happier note, Spring always makes me want to break out the pastel colors when it comes to card making. The new Little Dreamers stamps was the perfect set to get those pastel colors on paper!

There's lot of ink blending and die cutting on this card. Nope, I haven't been possessed by aliens. This card just called for it - and who am I to tell a card no?

You can watch the card come together in the video below:


Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

I'm pretty sure these little charmers would be adorable in any color combination, but I'm absolutely smitten with them in these unconventional colors! Those sweet pastels just make the card for me.

Thanks so much for dropping in!
