Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Home / Blog / Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Hello again! I’m back for my second post for today! We have a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog for the month of March! This time we ask you to CASE a Designer!

Just choose one of the Design Team’s cards as your inspiration and go from there! I love Lindsey’s simple Lovely Cards! You can see the original post HERE. I thought the way that she used the Hello Lovely stamp to create a subtle background was so clever! First I used the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coordinating Butterfly Card Dies to cut out the wings, overlay and body for the butterfly. I positioned the wings in the MISTI and stamped the outline in Black Licorice and the fill-in in Juice Box. To hold them together I adhered a piece of Black behind the wings, adhered the Vellum die cut wings on top and then the body. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I placed the folded card into my MISTI and positioned the flower cluster from the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set where I wanted it, inked it up with some Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink and stamped. While the card was in the MISTI I also stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Beauty Set in Black Licorice in the lower right corner. The butterfly is adhered to the card with a 3D Foam Square. I stamped two more of the small butterflies in Ballet Slippers and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Ballerina Pink and Orchid Sequins to finish the card. I love that butterfly and the subtle stamped background, thanks for the inspiration Lindsey! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th CASE a Designer Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has done to inspire you and we would love for you to share your card with us in the gallery! You have the whole month to play along!

  1. I so love your double posting days! This card is beautiful! Love the colors and of course your layers! Hard to go wrong with Concord and 9th

    1. Aww, thanks Linda! I love that butterfly, though I do wish they had a die just for the butterfly. Love Concord! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful card, Justin. I love all you did to make the butterfly so pretty. The Ballet Slipper pink flowers is so subtle but striking. I also love the small stamped butterflies and the sequins, of course. Don’t know how I missed this post, but glad I found it today. It is winter in full force today with about 2-3″ of snow now but only on the cars and grass…not the roads or sidewalks. It’s a great day to be crafty!! Have a wonderful Friday.

    1. Thank you HJ! I love that butterfly and the Ballet Slippers is a nice soft yet bright pink. We had a day of snow too, but the sun is shining now and it didn’t stick to the roads here either! Hope you had a nice crafty day! 🙂

  3. Great design, Justin! Love the soft subtle colored backdrop that you created for your beautiful butterfly focal point. *So* pretty!!!
