Hey there, all!!  Welcome to day 3 of the April WPlus9 release!  I hope that you are enjoying all the inspiring projects and new products that WPlus9 is coming out with this month.  Tonight we are sharing ANOTHER brand new item never before sold by WPlus9.  You are going to be so excited!!  Here is what we are introducing tonight:

We are also very pleased to announce that we are adding Impression plates to the Wplus9 line. These plates are manufactured by the same company as our Designer Dies. So you can expect the same high quality and lifetime guarantee that you've come to expect from Wplus9.
Chevron Impression Plate
  • 5.75" x 4.5" double sided steel impression plate

I have a little bit of a sad face right now, because I am waiting on some new sandwich plates to come in for my Cuttlebug...so I couldn't use the impression plate.  :(  But, I will definitely be using it tons once they come in, and I can't wait!!!  So for tonight, I used Label Layers 4 and coordinating dies for my card.  You are going to just LOVE this stamp set....it is definitely a must have!!  Here is what I created:
"Celebrate It's Your Day" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (black) & Papertrey Ink (smooth white) 
Paper/Banners: Heidi Swapp (Sugar Chic 6x6 paper pack)
Stamps/Dies: WPlus9 (Label Layers 4)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: berry) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Flowers: Making Memories (black) & Recollections (aqua, pink)
Metal charm: Making Memories
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Lace: vintage craft supply
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Sandpaper

Instructions:  Make card from black cardstock.  Cut cheetah print paper slightly smaller, sand the edges and adhere.  Adhere the scalloped border to the top of the card and the glittered banner to the bottom.  Thread black lace through a metal charm and adhere to the top of the glittered banner.  Add jewels to the metal charm, then adhere matching lace to the top of the scalloped border.  Diecut the bottom label layer from pink paper and then stamp the label image to it.  Diecut the top label layer from white cardstock, stamp the sentiment to it and adhere to the pink layer with foam adhesive.  Accent with jewels, then adhere to the card front with foam adhesive.  Adhere three flowers to the left side of layered labels to finish.  

Card Challenges Used:
-Stamp with Fun #155- non Easter theme
-There Shes Goes #150- metal embellishment

Sigh- so, I am kind-of in love with that card.  I just got these new papers & diecut banners in the mail today...and had to use them right away.  Oh how I have missed Heidi Swapp product, and they mixed perfectly with these amazing WPlus9 stamps & dies!  

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the WPlus9 team has created with this amazing, new stamp sets!  And don't forget...there are usually giveaways every night on Dawn's blog!! ;)
I will be back tomorrow night, using more of the new release items from WPlus9!  Hope to see you back then! ♥♥♥ 
Until later,
