Wplus9 August/September Release Group Post

It's here!  Release day!!!  All of the products that have been previewed this week are now available to purchase at Wplus9 Design Studio.

I have one last project to share with you today using Happy Harvest & Happy Harvest Die.

I had to make at least one project using this adorable scarecrow.  How cute is he?!!  And do you see those Pinking Squares peeking out from behind him?  I love layering images and making my own patterned paper. 

I started my card by stamping the scarecrow and accessories, then I sent him (*yes, I am calling it a him!)  through the Big Shot.  His hat was stamped using Country Charm and then that was die cut too.  I set him aside while I worked on the rest of my card. 

To make the patterned paper...I started with a strip of scrap paper.  I randomly stamped the sunflowers from Happy Harvest, then the leaves from Mother's Day Bouquet and finally Defining Words.  I die cut three Pinking Squares and distressed them. 

I adhered everything and added just a bit more stamping using the background building strips from Country Charm and distressed all edges.

I hope you've enjoyed this release as much as I have.  It has been such an honor and privilege to join the Wplus9 design team this month.  I'm sad it is over, but so happy that these products are now available to YOU.  I can't wait to see what you all do with them.
