Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Happy Anniversary Concord & 9th!!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Happy Anniversary Concord & 9th!!

Hello there and welcome back! I appreciate you stopping by again today! It’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! And it’s also Concord & 9th two year anniversary!

Can you believe it?! They have been supplying us with awesome products for two whole years! The rest of the Design Team and I will helping them celebrate all month long! We will be having Friday posts featuring stamps and dies from this month’s release! They also have a super fun stamp set this month that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying $60 or more purchase! You can find out more about that by clicking HERE! We are all featuring that set for our post today! Here is the challenge badge…

As soon as I saw the set I knew that it would become a favorite! We all make a lot of Thank You cards and this one is great for quick ones! My cards are all note card size with bases of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background onto the fronts with Peacock and Jalapeño Ink. Next I stamped the greetings using the Concord & 9th Serious Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the same colors with my Mini MISTI. The greetings are then adhered to pieces of 29lb Vellum and Fun Foam is used to attach them to my card bases. I could have been done but I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins for a little sparkle! I also stamped the #seriously onto each of the backs of the envelopes! I was going to use these myself but I think that I will tie a piece of ribbon around them and give them to a friend as a little gift! I can always make some more!

I hope that you enjoyed my little card set for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards and we hope that you will play along with us and enter your card in the gallery over on the BLOG! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Magic Unicorn – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Magic Unicorn – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Another productive day yesterday! I got a lot of things checked off my to-do list and enjoyed the weather. It’s supposed to be rainy here this morning but clear up by the afternoon. Last night was a relaxing TV and read a book kind of night. Today I have some more around the house things to do and then when the weather clears up I think I will go and take a ride somewhere! 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog at 11:00AM today. Be sure and stop by there too! It’s Concord & 9th’s 2 year anniversary this month so they will have lots of fun things panned! Look forward to celebrating along with them!

My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Soft Sky and trimmed it to cover the front of the card. The unicorn is from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored in the horn, mane, tail and hooves with Copics and used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out. My clouds are cut out with another one of the Dies from the Unicorn Set. I adhered the back one with E-Z Runner and the top one with 3M Foam Tape. The unicorn is added and the greeting, also from the Unicorn Set is stamped in the lower left. That unicorn really is a great image and I especially like him with the sun rays and clouds! 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!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Embossing!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Embossing!

Well, that was a nice Saturday! I got a few cards made in the morning and then in afternoon I headed over to my Brother’s for Tristan’s Birthday party. Lots of family and friends and of course my little Daniel. He rode all around the backyard in his Ford F-150 driving it like he’s had his license for years! LOL! Tristan was happy like she always is and wanted to be with me most of the time! She is starting to talk and will be walking very soon! I’ll share some pictures when my Brother posts them. I got to play photographer yesterday so I didn’t take any with my iPhone. This morning I think I’m going to try and tackle my top on my car. It leaked fluid out of the front and I can’t put it down anymore. My only source of happiness! LOL! 😀

Today I have the pleasure of sharing my card with you for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge

I do love some heat embossing and that’s all I did! To create my background I used the Concord & 9th Oh Hello Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with my MISTI. For each turn I stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Hero Arts Gold, Brass, Platinum and Copper Embossing Powder. It’s then trimmed to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. My main greeting, also from the same stamp set is heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I folded the edges around the background and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Just three Pretty Pink Posh Silver, Gold and Rose Gold Sequins finish the card! I do love all of the metallics with the Oh Hello Turnabout, makes for a fun and interesting background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Embossing Challenge! We hope that you will play along with us and enter your card in the gallery over on the BLOG! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hi all! I hope that you had a happy and safe Independence Day! I started my day yesterday by picking up my friend Chantal and heading over to Long Beach. Her Granddaughter takes surfing lessons so we went to watch. While we were there we saw a whole bunch of Dolphins in the water just off the beach. Who knew that we had Dolphins in the waters here?! You can see the kids in the water…

Before heading back Chantal and I had a nice brunch at a local restaurant. It was great to get to spend some time with her! I dropped her off and then stopped by my house before heading over to Stephanie’s for a BBQ. There were a bunch of my peeps there and we had a really nice time! Today I have some crafting to do and a lot of cleaning. 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog at 11:00AM today. Be sure and stop by there too! I did another card with a bunch of layers! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Concord & 9th Select-A-Size Edge Dies to cut a piece of Lobster and Gold Mirror Card. On the Lobster I heat embossed the hugs from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. The two layers are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the edge dies and the nice simple hugs greeting! I hope that you like my card for my July Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on July 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one! Thanks for stopping by!

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! 🙂

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 June 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! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on April 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!
