Wplus9 - A New Day

Hello Everyone and welcome back to Day 3 previews of Wplus9 April 2015 Released.
Today I am showcasing the new Coal Mine cardstock, A New Day  stamp set along with Love Mom Layers die set.

To begin my card I first cut the patterned paper same size as the A2 card and adhered onto the white card base. Next, I die-cut the white cardstock using the large stitched frame from the Love Mom Layers die set and distressed it with PURE COLOR dye ink in Wild Mango and Falling Star. Then I die-cut the new Coal Mine cardstock using the large stitched frame and large double stitched circle die from the new Love Mom Layers die set. Then adhered the two panel together the coal mine being the top panel.

Next, I stamped the cute chickadee from the A New Day  stamp set on a white cardstock and colored it with cheap Watercolors from Michaels, fussy cut the image and adhered it on the panel.

The sentiment "Tomorrow is a new day" is also from the same stamp set, the sentiment was heat embossed in gold directly on the Coal Mine cardstock panel.

To finish off the card I add some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

For my next card I first stamped the chickadee on a watercolor paper and colored it using Distress Inks from Ranger. The colors I used were Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Barn Door, Crushed Olive, and Peacock Feather.

To create the background I combined diluted Peacock Feather and Vintage Photo. You can see the current video that shows how to create this background if you are interested HERE.

I then added some splatters of ink in Vintage Photo, Wild Honey, and Crushed Olive. For the sentiment I used the hello die from the Hand Lettered Hello and added the "friend" sentiment from Fanciful Feathers stamp set.

To finish off the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh in Lime Sorbet.

I hope you guys enjoyed!
