Group Release EXTRAVAGANZA!

Once again, we're finishing off the latest release from WPLUS9 Design Studio, with a bang!



The whole W9 TEAM is in for the show and WHAT a show it's been! I have to share , it's great fun, having gotten to know Dawn, via Blogland, and through the honor of being one of her designers... Getting to know her personal style, and a little something about her design sense {which is FABULOUS!}, I so look forward to "meeting" Dawn's stamps each month! Incorporating her flawless, crisp images and breath-taking design instincts, into WHATEVER I'm inspired to create... is an amazing process! Then, you multiply that by the entire team and how uniquely each one of us utilize Dawn's gorgeous stamps - I just find it SO exciting to see the diverse interpretation!

Speaking of interpretation and INSPIRATION! I was SOOOOOOOOOOO excited about the technique Dawn used on day 2 of the release {check it right here, folks - the FIRST card she made, in particular..}... The bold look of the resistance stamping she did was the inspiration for my final card of the release...






I stamped the word "Rock" on vanilla card stock with white craft ink and clear, detail embossing powder. It gave me a sharp, clean image, and after sponging on my ink, I had the POP of contrast I was lusting for. This grand punch, from Stampin' Up! and some opaque, faux stitching and YESSSIRREEEE! This effect made me VERY happy! I am in complete LOVE with BOTH of Dawn's latest sets, So 80's and Sweet Nothings! I had SUCH fun making this, girly-grunge style greeting... another on my long list of "I just don't make enough of......"

I hope you'll treat yourself to a visit with Dawn's other designers - I KNOW they've had fun, too!



Good stamps, YUMMY paper, the fabulous support and comments from this darling corner of Blogland, and I'm a HAPPY girl! Thanks for continuing to bring me such joy! I'm so honored that you stopped by! Have a WONDERFUL day!
