Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Layers!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Layers!

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 June! This time we ask you to create a a card with some layers!

I started my card by stamping the flower from the Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lobster Ink. I then placed a piece of 29lb Vellum over the top and stamped the second layer of the flower in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl. The Coordinating Dies cut out both layers, including a little Black 110lb for the flower center, and I adhered them to each other with E-Z Runner, hiding it behind the embossing. To make the background I cut a piece of Black 110lb with the Select-A-Size Edge Dies and adhered that to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is from the Happy Words Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice right onto the card base. All that was left to do was to adhere the flower to the card with 3M Foam Tape! I love how the vellum softens the bold red of the flower and the funky edge offset is pretty neat too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Layers Challenge! We hope that you will take some time to share your card with us in the gallery. Be sure to stop by the BLOG for some inspiration from the rest of the Team! Thanks so much for coming by again! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

Bright Happy Day – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

I started by putting my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock into my Mini MISTI and stamping the greeting from the Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock. I left the card in the MISTI and stamped the flowers and leaves from the set in Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Grape Soda, Juice Box, Jalapeño and Noble Fir. It needed some sparkle so I added a few Shimmering Pool Jewels and Lagoon Sequins Mix from Little Things by Lucy! A nice quick simple card that you could easily make multiples of and give as a gift!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Florals!

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 May! This time we ask you to create a a card with some florals on it!

My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th All About You Dies to cut out the YOU from the card front. That lovely gold die cut at the top is cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Concord & 9th Detailed Blossoms Die. The two flowers are from the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Hero Arts Light to Dark Peach Ombre Ink. I cut the out with the Coordinating Dies. Next it used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some more of the Ombre Ink to a piece of Solar White 110lb and cut out the YOU and for from that. The YOU is then cut out from some more Gold Mirror Card. I closed the card and used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere all of the die cuts. I then stamped the Happy Birthday on the inside and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the front to finish the card. I LOVE That Detailed Blossoms Die, so intricate and delicate looking!

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello and welcome to post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on May 9th! Today I’m sharing another single layer card!

For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To create my mask I stamped the butterfly from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Narwhal in and then stamped it again onto a Post-it Note. The one on the Post-it is cut out with my Scissors and placed over the one stamped onto the card. Next I stamped the floral cluster from the Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set Again in Narwhal along with the greeting. To color the images in I used Prismacolor Pencils. I went a little darker on the butterfly to make it stand out a bit more. It needed just a little something so I added some random dots with a Gold Sign Gel Pen. These really are two of my favorite sets from Concord & 9th and I love the way the butterfly turned out!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and that you will give masking a try! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on May 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – One Layer!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – One Layer!

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 April! This time we ask you to create a single layer card!

To start making my card I stamped the lily from the Concord & 9th Lily Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a Post-it and cut it out with my Scissors. I then prepared my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and placed it into my MISTI. The lily is stamped in the lower right, I placed the mask over that one and stamped the next one over it and repeated the process for the top one. Next I stamped the yellow centers with Sunflower Ink, again using the mask. All that was left for me to do was to add my greeting from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. I do love a one layer card, especially with some masking. I think this would make a great card for so many different occasion, don’t you? I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Single Layer 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!

Lucky Because…

Lucky Because…

Hello and welcome to post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on April 9th!

I love the big new word dies that they came out with and isn’t it nice to remember that no matter what we have going on in our lives, I’m sure that we all can find something that makes us feel lucky! And how nice to let someone else know that we are lucky to have them!

To start my card I die cut the large lucky from the Concord & 9th Lucky Dies from a piece of Solar White 80lb paper and used some Washi Tape to hold it to a piece of Black Card Stock. I put the outline of the die back inside the negative and then sponged on some Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. After that dried I added some Mama Elephant Lemongrass Pigment Ink over the White and used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying. Here is what it looked like while I was working on it…

Next I used the Concord & 9th Lucky Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the I’m Super and Because… in Versa-Mark. I added some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it. My black panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then die cut the thin lucky from two pieces of Lemon Lime along with some of the stars. The two luckies are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then over the sponged lucky with Multi-Matte Medium. The stars are added randomly and the card is done! I love the look of the sponged lucky with the die cut in the middle , it looks a little like neon!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Design Team and that you are inspired to make a card and send it off to someone that needs a little reminder of how lucky you are to have them in your life!! I know exactly who I’m giving this one to! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

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

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!

Better with You… and Coffee

Better with You… and Coffee

OMG! It feels like Winter is back! I don’t think that it got out of the teens yesterday and that wind was as strong as ever! Hey Spring, where’d ya go?! I did have a nice productive day at the Store, managed to get two cards made and survived Renee’s kids class! LOL! After work I had a quick dinner with my Parents, they were going to my Brother’s to watch Daniel and Tristan. Taylor came by and we ran a few errands. I cleaned the bathroom, Saturday night fun, and watched Sweet Home Alabama! I never realized but Reese Whitherspoon drives the same car that I have in the movie! Sunday’s are usually quiet at the Store so I’m going to try and get all caught up on my projects! 😀

Today I have my solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog and I’m sharing another card for the Love Theme Challenge that just finished! You can see my post by clicking HERE and heading over to the Design Team Blog! The post will go live at 11:00AM.

I started by heat embossing the images for the coffee cup and plate onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock with some White Embossing Powder. I do enjoy a little fussy cutting and these images are super easy to cut out. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto the plate. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of black and cream patterned paper for the background. I decided that it was a little too bold so I used a piece of Vellum to soften it adhering the images with Foam Tape, including a spoon that I heart embossed onto a piece of gold metallic card, to it and the hiding the adhesive behind them to hold the vellum to the card. A relatively simple card to make that will get sent to someone special just to let them know I’m thinking of them!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! We will be starting a new challenge on March 9th so be sure and play along with us for that one! Thanks for stopping by and spending some of your Sunday with me! Have a simply wonderful day! 🙂

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! 🙂

Each of the Design Team received some new goodies that are being released today! I had the pleasure of playing with the Best Banners Stamp and Dies! I made a really simple card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My heart is from the Concord & 9th Heart Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set and I stamped it in Hero Arts Passion Flower Ink three times using my Mini MISTI. Then I stamped the perfect from the Concord & 9th Best Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. The die cut perfect banner is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock using the Concord & 9th Best Banner Dies. I adhered it to the card slightly offset from the stamped perfect using Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The rest of the greeting is also from the Best Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and again is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the new Best Banners Stamps and Dies, especially with the stamped word behind the die cut one!
