WPlus9 | Iconic Christmas & Blog Link Problems

Hello there!

A few people have e-mailed me to let me know that some of my blog links aren’t working (for example, links to products I was using). I did some digging and found out that links that come in an e-mail newsletter do not work. They do work when you click over to my blog, but do not seem to work in the e-mails going out from my blog.

I am working on getting links fixed and I’m hoping to have them all fixed very soon (I wont be able to fix old e-mails, but new e-mails should not have that problem). I really appreciate you letting me know about this problem and sticking with me while I fix it. Thank you!

Today I wanted to share a card I had posted on WPlus9 blog a few days ago using one of my first ever stamp set from this company – Iconic Christmas.

Since this was my first post as WPlus9 Design Team member, I thought it would be appropriate to use my very first stamp set for my card. Also, because I believe repetition is a good way to learn something I wanted to make one more project that would feature a dry embossing details technique using coordinating dies I shared in a video on WPlus9 blog last month.

I started working on this card by stamping two trees (medium size trees from Iconic Christmas stamp set) in Last Leaf ink onto a panel of Oatmeal cardstock. I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner and double stamped them both to have a better ink coverage.

I left a bit of room in the center of my panel for the big tree; placed a companion die, taped it in place and dry embossed in my Platinum 6″ die cutting machine using embossing sandwich. Once I had that tree outline in place I went back to my MISTI and stamped the main tree in the center. At that time I also realized that Last Leaf ink color was looking a bit too light for my scene and re-stamped all images using Appletini. Some images ended up being slightly offset and I have to say I love this look.

I stamped a few additional images from the Iconic Christmas stamp set and cut them out using companion dies – I stamped lamp posts (I clearly have a thing for lamp posts as I seem to be using them on nearly every card of mine), wreaths and carolers. In addition to Appletini, I used Old Gold and Cranberry Crush colors.

The sentiment, Good Tidings, was heat embossed in gold embossing powder directly onto panel. To finish this card I added some red and white twine and adhered several gold sequins.

    1. Unforgettable was my first set. I watched Dawn watercolor it and that began my love of that medium. I’ve made lots of beautiful welcome baby and happy birthday for littles with it.

    1. This is a lovely set and a beautiful card 🙂 I think my first WP9 set was the dream catchers.
