Wplus9 Design Studio - GROUP RELEASE!



It's the grand finale, friends! The BIG night, the final curtain...



We've ARRIVED!!! It's the last night of the latest Wplus9 release,
and that means that ALL of Dawn's new stamps and dies are NOW
available for purchase at the Wplus9 Design Studio! And WE'VE all
assembled with our final designs for this release at Dawn's Blog....!


I can't TELL you HOW fun it was to work with these stamps AND
coordinating dies... So perhaps, I should SHOW you! As promised,
here are some quick steps for creating a tag/die-cut/backbround -
and BEYOND! {Far, FAR, beyond!}


  • 1.) Cut and lay-out tags, as desired.
  • 2.) Tape several together, from the back side.
  • 3.) Plan where to add additional tag.
  • 4.) Position die shape so that the cutting edge is flush. Secure die with small piece of tape and run through die cutting machine.
  • 5.) Note the view, AFTER cut is made.
  • 6.) Continue adding tags & making cuts where necessary. Tape together, to create collage.



Once complete, stamp and decorate as desired.



I took this collage a step further and cut, then added cloud shapes, from
Dawn's Hearts & Clouds Die... Yes, indeed! That's WHAT I'm talkin' about!

As always, on GROUP release night, we're ALL on display at Dawn's blog,
but I hope you'll visit ALL the gals and see the details on how we EACH
celebrated the possibility of these WONDERFUL stamps and dies!


I so appreciate you allowing me to try to dazzle and delight you
with my love for this latest release....! {And I DO mean love!}
Thanks, AGAIN, for all of your support!

I'll be back soon with MORE pictures and highlights from CHA!

This is too fun, Elise! LOVE the way those clouds nestle into the tags, and your little bunny peeking out from behind that egg is over-the-top ADORABLE!
