Oh, Hello Squared – Concord & 9th May Guest Designer

Oh, Hello Squared – Concord & 9th May Guest Designer

Hello again! In this post I get to tell you that I have the privilege of being one of the Guest Designer’s for Concord & 9th for the May Release! You all know that I love their innovative and fun products! It also doesn’t hurt that Angie, Greg and Amy are some of the nicest people that I have had the pleasure of doing business with! So, for next four Fridays I will be sharing products from the new release with you! Each week Jeanette, Vera and myself will be using the same products so you can see how versatile they are! This week we are showing you the new Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp!

To start my project I followed the instructions in THIS VIDEO to get my stamp ready. I then put it in to my MISTI along with a piece of Solar White 80lb. To ink it I used Lawn Fawn Merman, Fresh Lavender and Narwhal Ink for the first three turns. I made sure that it was ready for some heat embossing by using my Heat Tool to completely dry it. I placed the paper back into the MISTI and added my Versa-Mark. Next I sprinkled on Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. For the first card I trimmed a piece of the stamped background to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I wrapped a piece of 48lb Vellum around the sides and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The hello is cut three times from more Solar White 110lb using the Concord & 9th Say Hello Dies. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then heat embossed it with more White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. The OH is from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set and that is heat embossed onto a piece of Basic Gray. I used a little more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the hello and 3M Foam Tape to adhere the OH.

I had a strip of the background left over so I thought why not make a second card! For this one I stamped the hi there, also from the Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp, in Merman and Fresh Lavender onto another card base of Solar White 110lb down the right side. The leftover piece of the background is adhered to a piece of Coastal Cabana and then adhered down the left side of the card! Super simple and a nice quick fun card!

I LOVE that Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp! See what I mean by innovative fun products?! How cool is it that you can make your own background paper in any color that you want?! I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer projects for the Concord & 9th Blog! Click here to go to the Concord & 9th post and see what the other Guest Designers have done!

Fab Friday 112

Fab Friday 112

A very happy Friday to you! I had another productive day yesterday. I did some cleaning, some laundry and played with Tristan and Daniel. We all had dinner together at my Parent’s. I came home for a bit and then went over to meet Heather and Stephanie at Brian & Kim’s for Thirsty Thursday. So good to see the peeps! This morning I’m going with Heather to drop off her car for inspection and then we are going to have some breakfast. A fun way to start the day!

This is one of two posts from me today! I’ll have another post shortly with a fun announcement!

It’s a Fab Friday this week and we have some colors to inspire you…

I got my May My Monthly Hero Kit the other day and these colors seemed to work perfectly with it! To start I used the Stencil in the Kit and some Blueprint Sketch and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink along with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add color to a piece of Solar White 80ob. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The mermaid is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, I cut her out with the Coordinating Die along with some coral and seaweed from a piece of Calypso Coral. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. All of the die cuts are adhered to the circle and the circle is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Blue Lagoon and Amethyst Sequins and some Hero Arts Clear Gems finish the card! I do love that stenciled background, so easy and such a nice way to showcase the mermaid! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! We hope that you will visit the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to come back in a little bit for my second post for today! I’m pretty excited about it! Enjoy your Friday morning! 🙂
