Wplus9 August/September Release Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Wplus9 August/September release.  Have you been loving it so far?  I bet you have!!!  Guess what?  There is more today so let's get on with it :)

First up is Pretty Patches:  Apple & die

I think this little apple is so adorable!  I'm getting a jump start on my teacher cards for the upcoming school year.  I like to send in a card after the first week of school thanking my kids teachers for making the adjustment easy, etc.  Pretty Patches: Apple is perfect for that!  I paired Pretty Patches with Country Charm, Happy Harvest and the Pinking Squares dies.  The products being released this month all work so well together!

My next card uses Pretty Patches:  Pumpkin & die

Who doesn't love a gingham pumpkin, come on :)  This card uses essentially the same layout as my first card with a few less layers.  I added some extra interest to both the die cut Pinking Square and the center heart by adding some faux stitching.  I think the stitching around the heart really makes it pop!  I finished off this country inspired card by adding a button tied with linen thread.

That's all I have for you today, but the Wplus9 design team has even more!  Head on out and visit each of their blogs to see how they've used Pretty Patches: Apple & Pumpkin...

I love your stunningly simple designs, Maureen! The pinked squares are the perfect base for these cute images. I so love that little pumpkin!!

Maureen oh Maureen, you've done it again! Not one, but two perfect CAS designs with a little country swag! I am truly blown away with how well you've represented for Wplus9. A huge THANK YOU!

Love your cards :-) I love the red and blue on the kraft base, and I love the pumpkin card too. You do a great CAS job! Pinning :-) (if you prefer that I don't pin them just let me know :-)

Jinny Newlin said...

Pure, CAS perfection, Maureen! LOVE the color combo of your first to pieces, and the bit of stitching, to anchor your pinking square, on the second, is the perfect finishing touch!

Beautiful cards, Mo! I love the homespun feel of the patchwork! Combined with your CAS flair, these beauties really hit the soul :)

Love and hugs, Sis!!!
