WPlus9 Step It Up Challenge

Quilt1

WPlus9 is celebrating its 4th birthday and there’s lots of inspiration happening over on their blog. I wanted to use the Quilt Cuts die for the current Step It Up challenge. I’d seen Dawn’s great video here with tips on using this die with adhesive sheets and it certainly does make the process of putting the “quilted” square together very easy! I used an old silver brad from my stash to finish it off. The sentiment is from WPlus9’s Fanciful Feathers stamp set and was heat embossed in white. I added some interest to the background panel by spritzing it with Dylusions White Linen ink spray (love this stuff!), a few sequins  and finally some faux stitching with a gel pen to keep with the sewing theme.

WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #25 Card 2

FF1

Here’s the second thank you card I made using WPlus9’s Fanciful Feathers stamps and coordinating dies, this time along with the ikat stamp from Borders & Background 1. It was such fun putting the card together. I love the chic-ness of this week’s Monday Mood Board with its playful pop of yellow. It provided me with the colour inspiration for the card.

WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #25 Card 1

This was my first card using WPlus9’s Fanciful Feathers stamps and coordinating dies. I adore both the images and the lovely hand script sentiments in this set. I had to make two thank you cards for my boys, who have just finished a two week summer music school program at the Canberra Young Music Society. Over 400 children took part, during a record-breaking heatwave. Keeping those children cool, safe and happily occupied was no mean feat! So we wanted to thank our kids’ teachers with a little card and gift. The colours were inspired by this week’s WPlus9 Monday Mood Board:

The stripes on the left of the card were stamped using images from WPlus9’s Country Charm set (I find myself reaching for that set all the time!). Next I die cut the feathers. Lining up the images on the die cut shapes is super easy. I stamped the smaller feather images in Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle and Stampin Up Smoky Slate.  The larger feather is lovely and delicate and I wanted to keep that feeling when it was coloured, so I lightly spritzed it using a colour spray. To adhere that feather I used a Quickie Glue stick – much easier and neater than using a tape runner.
