Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Love!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Love!

Hello again! I’m back for my second post of the day! This time it’s for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge! February is pretty much the month of love right?! So let’s all make some love themed cards!

I started out making one card but didn’t waste to wast the leftover pieces so I made two! To begin I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock and a piece of Tropical Sea. I then created my card bases out of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To stamp the heart I used the Concord & 9th Heart Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set, some Lawn Fawn Peacock Ink and my Mini MISTI so I would be able to stamp it multiple times to get a nice crisp impression. The arrow is added with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice along with the Love Greeting. I also stamped the little love heart in more Peacock on Solar White 80lb and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto another piece of Tropical Teal. They are cut out with the little heart die from the Heartstrings Set. The gold outline heart is then adhered over the stamped one with 3D Foam Squares. For the second card I adhered the Teal die cut to a piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with just the outline of the Heartstrings Die. I then pieced all of the Gold Glitter Card Stock back in and adhered the heart to another card base stamped with one of the other greetings from the Set. They needed just a little more bling so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze and Gold Sequins! I love that Heartstrings Die, especially in the Gold with the Teal! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Love Theme Challenge! We hope to see you card in the gallery so stop by the BLOG and get some more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team! Thanks for coming by again today! Enjoy the rest of your Thursday! 🙂

OSAT February Blog Hop – All You Need is Love!

OSAT February Blog Hop – All You Need is Love!

It was sooooooo nice out yesterday! We made it up to 62 degrees! I had to go out to the bank and I had the pleasure of having the top down in the car! In February! What?!?! Well, never fear, today we are to get up to 12 inches of snow! Insane weather! I would of course prefer to do a repeat of yesterday! I made sure thatI was nice and productive at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, we are closed today. They have told everyone to make sure that if they don’t need to travel to stay home. I think that I will get some more organizing done today, it’s a good day to do it! 😀

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the talented Jeanna Bohanon, welcome! This month we have a All You Need is Love theme! Ahh… who doesn’t like a little love?! I have a card and coordinating gift box for you today!

I used the same stamp set on both the card and the gift box. To create them I heat embossed the flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in WOW! Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder onto three pieces of Solar White 80lb, one so that I could cut out the large flowers. For the card I also stamped the greeting from the set in Hero Arts Wet Cement Ink. On the cut out flowers I added a little Prismacolor Colored Pencils to the petals. For the gift box I used the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Lawn Cut to cut out the paper and adhered it together with Scor-Tape. I adhered the background for the card to a piece of Shale Card Stock and then to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The cut out flowers are adhered to the card and to the gift box with 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and they are done! I love that Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder and the flowers and leaves from the Hello Lovely Set look great left as is, colored in or stamped with the addition layers!
