Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Grateful for Everything!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Grateful for Everything!

Happy last Friday of August to you all! I can’t believe that the Summer is almost over! It went so fast. I had a very nice week that I spent at Jim’s house in Pennsylvania. The weather was perfect, no rain and nice and warm. I even went in the lake! We also made two headboards from palette wood. I love the way that they came out! You’ll have to let me know what you think!

I think they add a nice rustic look that’s perfect for a lake house! I came home last night and didn’t hit any traffic until I got to the George Washington Bridge. There is always so much traffic in New York, even at 9:00PM! 😀

It’s time for our last Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th’s August release. Today we are featuring the Grateful for Everything Stamps and Dies! A beautiful floral spray that is slightly larger than an A2 card.

I felt like using my colored pencils to do a little coloring so I stamped the floral image from the Grateful for Everything Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice onto a piece of Kraft. Once I had finished my coloring I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out.

My greeting is cut from a piece of Black 110lb and adhered to a card base of Kraft Card Stock with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The floral image is added and I used my Scissors to trim off the overhang and the card is done! Nice and simple, you could stamp a few of the floral images and take them with you to color!

I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thank you so much for visiting and have a spectacular weekend! 🙂

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Thankful Leaves!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Thankful Leaves!

Happy Friday! I have been watching Brian and Kim’s girls Izzy and Savannah all week. They went on a well deserved and much needed cruise to the Bahamas with two of their friends. The girls have been so good and we have had a lot of fun! I’m sure that will be happy to see Mom and Dad when they get home on Sunday! 😀

It’s time for another Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! This week we are featuring the Thankful Leaves Stamps and Dies! I also used a sentiment from the Shiplap Sentiments Stamp Set!

I really do love that leaf die and today I used it to make a shaker card! I began by cutting out the solid leaf from a piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock. On the bottom I heat embossed the Hello from The Shiplap Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I then used the Leaf Die with the insert to cut out a piece of Copper Glitter Paper from the Summer Glitter Paper Pack. On the back of the Grey panel I adhered a piece of Acetate and then used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere to the copper glitter leaf to the Acetate. Some 3M Foam Tape is added to the back of the panel. I used a darker piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock for the card base and added Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold, Pewter and Marshmallow Sequins before adhering the front. I love all of the sparkle and that Glitter Paper from Concord & 9th is awesome!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thank you for spending a little time with me today! Have a fantastic Weekend! 🙂

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – So Happy for You!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – So Happy for You!

Happy Friday peeps! I have had a pretty quiet week. Got some things done around the house, caught up on a bunch of stuff and binged some Netflix. I want to make plans to maybe go into Manhattan this weekend but it’s supposed to rain and they can’t decide if it’s going to be on Saturday or Sunday. I think that we should be able to determine that by now! I’m going to be taking care of my friends Brian and Kim’s girls Izzy and Savannah next week while they go away on vacation. Gotta plan some things to get us out of the house! LOL! 😀

It’s time for another Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! This week we are using the So Happy for You Stamps and Dies!

I also used the Top it Off Stamps and Dies! To start my card I stamped the flowers and leaves from the So Happy for You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sugarplum, Peachy Keen, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass and Noble Fir and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my greeting I stamped the Oh Happy Day from the Top it off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sugarplum onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then used the hoop die to cut it out. For the outline I used the hoop die to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Paper from the Neutrals Glitter Pack. Another circle is cut from another piece of Solar White 110lb using the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The stamped greeting and hoop are added to the circle with E-Z Runner and Multi-Purpose Spray. It looked a little plain so I used the Oh Happy Day Die to cut out some more Gold Glitter Paper and then added that to the greeting. I arranged my flowers and leaves behind the circle and then picked them up with some Glad Press n Seal, added adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card. The circle is then adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I love the bright flowers and bold sparkly greeting, a happy day indeed!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thanks you for spending a little time with me today! Have a fantastic Weekend! 🙂

Wedding Congrats – Concord & 9th!

Wedding Congrats – Concord & 9th!

Happy Monday! How was the weekend?! Mine was good. I drove upstate to see my friends Ella and Tom on Saturday. The rain was terrible on the way up there but the sun did peek out later in the afternoon. Yesterday I got some things done around the house and then went over to see Brian and Kim for a bit. Today I have some cleaning and laundry to do, fun right?! LOL! I’m going to try and get into the Stampin’ Galley too, let’s see if that happens! 😀

I forgot to share my card with you last week featuring the NEW Concord & 9th Top it Off Stamps! So that’s what I have for you today! I started by heat embossing some of the images from the set in Hero Arts White and Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini MISTI to make sure that everything was lined up! Once all of my heat embossing was done I adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For a little sparkle I added Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins and the card is done! The card was pretty simple to make and I think would work great for a wedding! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for visiting with me and have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Birthday Balloon!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Birthday Balloon!

Happy Friday! I hope that you all had a nice week. It has been really hot here and I’m loving it! The Summer is definitely my favorite time of year and I can’t believe that it’s already August! I have been enjoying driving around with the top down in my car and trying to keep busy. This weekend I will be taking a ride to see a friend upstate. That will be fun! 😀

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post I’ll be helping Concord & 9th celebrate their third Birthday along with the rest of my teammates from the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! We will have posts from you every Friday this month featuring products from this month’s release! Today we are featuring the Birthday Ballon Stamps and Dies. You can earn the Dies for FREE with a qualifying $60 purchase and get the Stamps too when you make a qualifying $120 purchase!

I do love a nice large image in a set, makes for great quick cards! My card starts with a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cut to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I placed it in my Mini MISTI and stamped the balloon from the Birthday Balloon Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock, Jalapeño and Merman Ink. The greeting is stamped in Black Licorice. I used the happy die to cut out a piece of Silver Glitter Card and adhered it to the panel with Multi-Matte Medium. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the strings I used a Comic Multi-liner and the card is done! A quick, simple and fun Birthday card! I love the way that light blue balloon looks like it’s on top of all of the others!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Concord & 9th Feature Friday post!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Anything Goes!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Anything Goes!

Hello!

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th! It’s also their third Birthday! We will be celebrating with them all month long with Feature Friday posts! Each Friday we will be sharing ideas for one of this month’s new products! It’s also time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

You all know that Concord & 9th is one of my favorite companies and I do love to get goodies early! LOL! I used the NEW Thankful Leaves Dies to make a masculine Birthday card! To start I choose a piece of glitter paper from the Concord & 9th Neutrals Glitter Pack and a piece of Copper Foil Sheet. For the glitter paper I used the Thankful Leaves Die and poked out all of the pieces. When I cut out the one from the Copper Foil Sheet the pieces stayed and I liked the look! I used the Die again without the middle piece to cut out a piece of Desert Storm 80lb to back the Copper leaf and adhered it with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. For the card I used the Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp and some Hero Arts Soft Brown Ink and stamped it onto another piece of Desert Storm 80lb. That is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my greeting I heat embossed the Let’s Celebrate from the Triple Step Hooray Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto more Desert Storm 80lb and trimmed it out with my scissors. The leaves are then adhered to the card with more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and the greeting with 3m Foam Tape. A simple fun Birthday card with a masculine twist!

Thanks Peach – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Thanks Peach – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello peeps! It’s been a while I know! I hope that you all have been well. I’m enjoying my Summer and hope that you all are too. Not too sure what I’m up to today but it’s supposed to be in the 90’s so maybe a trip into the city?! 😀

It’s time for my August Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I love the new Dip Dyed Cards and Envelopes that Concord released last month so I used one to make my card for today! I started by heat embossing the thank you from the Triple-Step Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Iridescent Vellum using my Mini MISTI and then cut it out with the Coordinating Dies. The peach is from the same set and is stamped in Carrot and Cranberry for the peach and Noble Fir for the leaf. The Coordinating Dies cut that out too. I stamped the you’re a peach in Peacock and then used 3M Foam Tape to adhered the thank you and the peach to the card base. Don’t those Dip Dyed cards make cool backgrounds?!

I hope that you like the card for my August Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
