Hello I am showcasing the New Wplus9 August 2014 Released 
stamp set and Papel Picado dies.

This set is simply one of my favorite....I don't have anything like it :) I really love that the little images from the Fresh Cut Containers worked perfectly.

1. To begin, I stamped the largest papel picado image on different white cardstock in four different colors.
2. After stamping I die-cut each one of the colored images. I die-cut more blank papel picado squares 4 for each square then adhere on the card. I did not use foam tape on the squares this time. I adhere the blank square die-cut behind the colored stamped images and adhere on the card for elevation. It made the die-cuts part of the card base this way :).

3. I then splatter it with Studio Calico Shine.

4. Next, I stamped the Fresh Cut Containers flower images on a separate cardstock and fussy cut. The swirly flower images also stamped on a separate white cardstock, fussy cut and adhere with foam tape.
5. For the Thanks die from Hand Lettered Thanks, I die-cut the sentiment 4 times and adhere with Tombo Mono Multi Glue, I did this because the die-cut is very slim and foam tape will not work as easily.
6. The "You're Too Kind" is also from the Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set. Gold embossed on vellum and adhere on one of the papel squares.

Here's the look of the full card.

For my second project I couldn't help but make some banners using
Papel Picado and Fresh Cut Containers.

1. To begin, I first stamped the papel picado images on the watercolor paper. 
2. Once its done, I then stamped some of the flowers from Fresh Cut Containers and watercolor the images.
I just added very little water on the water brush just to move some of the water from the images to get that watercolor look. 
3. I then stamped the swirly flower image from the Fresh Cut Containers, fussy cut, and adhere with foam tape for dimension.

4. I also added some splattering using the leftover watercolor from my acrylic block.
5. For finishing touch I added a kraft scallop border on top of the card from Scallop Spellbinder square die.
6. I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in Marigold, Sparkling Clear, and Marshmallow.
7. The sentiment is from Strictly Sentiments 5, I colored the clear stamp with Distress Marker in Vintage Photo before stamping it on the card for a watercolor look.

Here's the full view of the card.

I hope you enjoyed!
