WPlus9 August Release - Autumn Leaves & Grateful Greetings

Today we kick of the WPlus9 August release!
We are a little bit late this month, but I promise that it'll be worth the wait.
We have new stamp sets, dies and 6 new ink colors!

My card today features the Autumn Leaves and Grateful Greetings stamp sets, as well as the Gift Card Layers die.


My husband and kids rarely get excited about my cards.  I get an "oh, that's nice" or "wow" or something every so often, but they all got REALLY about this one!  I'll have to remember that the next time I make them a card :)  I think it has something to do with us being a nature loving family and the technique!  I love the Shadow Stamping technique, especially when paired with nature inspired stamp sets.  

To make my card I first die cut a piece of Kraft card stock with the new Gift Card Layers die.  Then I stamped the background using White Pigment Ink and heat set it to ensure that it was dry before I went in with Gala Red, Flamingo and Appletini inks.  I stamped a greeting from the new Grateful Greetings stamp set in Warm Wool inkon white card stock that as again cut using the Gift Card Layer die.

Autumn Leaves and Grateful Greetings are timeless, beautiful stamps that can be used any time of the year.  They are definitely a must-have for any stampers collection.

I'll be back on Wednesday with another card using the WPlus9 August release.  Visit the WPlus9 Design Blog each day this week for more inspiration and for a chance to win some new product!  Stop by and visit Kara & Joni too!!
