Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Layers!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Layers!

I’m back! LOL! Here with my post for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th. This time we have a Layers challenge…

Lately I have been really into more clean cards but who doesn’t love a few layers to give a little wow to your project?! I started my card by stamping the Deck the Halls Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Lime Green, Soft Cantaloupe, Tide Pool and Soft Granite Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with my MISTI. It’s trimmed to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. My greeting is from the Very Merry Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Vellum. I wrapped it around the stamped panel and added it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my tag I used the Holiday Cheer Tags Dies and some more Solar White 80lb. I also used the ornament die to cut out the negative from the center of the tag holder. Onto the tag I stamped the ornament from the Holiday Cheer Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lime Green and added the topper cut from a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. A piece of American Crafts Lime Green Twine is tied through the top and the tag is added to the card. It needed just a little sparkle and to take care of that I scattered some Little Things by Lucy Shimmering Pool Gems.

I love the colors and the pop of the white tag and sentiment against the bright background! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Layers Challenge! There is more inspiration over on the BLOG so head on over and check it out! We hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks for coming by again today! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

Merry Little Lights – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello! I hope that you had a good week! I’m up in PA and loving every minute of it! Like a little piece of paradise in the country! It’s the last visit for me for the season. I still can’t believe that it’s October already. Where has this year gone?!

It’s time for my October Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I just wanted to stamp so I pulled out the Concord & 8th Merry & Bright and Very Merry Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Sets! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the greeting from the Very Merry Sentiments in Gina K Amalgam Ink with my Mini MISTI so the I could stamp it a few times to make sure it’s nice and dark. I then used the Christmas Tree Bulb image from the Merry & Bright Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped it in Lobster, Carrot, Sunflower, Jalapeño, Fish Tank and Sugarplum randomly. To connect the lights I drew a line with my COPIC Multiliner and the card is done! Quick, simple and a fun card to make!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Color Inspiration!

Hello there my friends! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend! It’s a little rainy here so I have been spending some time cleaning out the Stampin’ Galley. I’ll be participating in a craft sale on September 22nd in Oceanside to help with my ongoing purge! I’ll share more details with you as we get closer! I think that there are 12 of us in total so there will be some great goodies for sale! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Some nice soft Fall colors! I started my card by creating the background using the Plaid Background Photopolymer Stamp and my MISTI. It’s stamped in Mint Julep and Cup O Joe onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I used the Lovely Blossoms Dies to cut out a piece of Calypso Coral and Early Espresso. I adhered the Calypso Coral die cut to another piece of Calypso Coral and used Glue Tube to add back in the you are lovely and frame. The excess is trimmed off with my Scissors. The tails are two pieces of Wood Textures 6×6 Paper. I added them behind the die cut and the added a piece of Fun Foam. To soften the background a bit I trimmed a piece of Vellum to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and and added that to the back of the die cut and then adhered the whole thing to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Espresso, Lemon Drop and Lime Sorbet Sequins and a die cut flower also from the Lovely Blossoms Dies cut from a piece of So Saffron complete the card!

Thankful Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Thankful Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Happy September! Hopefully the warm weather stays around for a while longer even though technically the Summer is over. I had a great week up at the lake last week, a nice way to end the Summer for sure. I started watching my Niece and Nephew again, Daniel goes to full day kindergarten so it’s just me and Tristan for most of the day. I’m not looking forward to the cooler weather at all! How bout you?! 😀

It’s time for my August Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! The Thankful Leaves Dies are definitely my favorite from last month’s release! I love that leaf die so I used it again on today’s card. I was watching one of Jennifer McGuire’s videos and decided that I wanted to try one of her shadowbox cards! I did all of the steps to make the box for the card using Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the die cut inside I used just the outline of the Leaf Die. For my background I stamped the Thankful Leaves Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Freshly Cut Grass and a Sunflower, twice with each color, onto Solar White 80lb. The panel is trimmed to fit inside the card. On the front of the card I used the Leaf Die again with the inside piece to cut out some Lime Glitter Paper from the Summer Glitter Paper Pack. It’s adhered to the card front with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Along the bottom I stamped the THANKFUL, also from the Thankful Leaves Turnabout in Freshly Cut Grass. To go inside my die cut leaf on the inside of the card I used a piece of Heat Resistant Acetate and heat embossed another greeting in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. It’s adhered to the back of the die cut panel with Scor-Tape. All that was left to do was assemble the card. I’ll definitely be making more shadowbox cards, love the way they look!

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!

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?!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Mixed Media!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Mixed Media!

Happy Monday! I trust that you all had a nice weekend! I did! Yesterday I went out East with a friend, we had lunch by a stream and then stopped in Port Jefferson on the way back. It was the perfect day for a road trip in the convertible! I also picked up a Rhubarb Pie, my Great Grandmother used to grow Rhubarb and makes pies when I was little! The pie wasn’t as good as hers but it definitely brought back memories! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

I got use one of the NEW Stamp and Die Sets from this month’s release to make my card! I also dug out some Glitter Paste and used a lot of pink and a little ribbon, now there are a few things I don’t often use! My background is a piece of Iridescent Pink 65lb Card. I used my Palette Knife to add Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste through the Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stencil and set it aside to dry. From the Concord & 9th Laurel Frame Photopolymer Stamp Set I stamped the wreath in Jalapeño and Noble Fir and the flowers in Ballet Slippers, Peachy Keen and Bubblegum using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. Once the background was dry I added a piece of Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4″ Pink Pirouette Ribbon and adhered it around the back. The background is then added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To adhere the wreath and flowers I used 3M Foam Tape. Finally, I cut out the hello, also from the Laurel Frames Dies, from more 110lb and used Multi-Matte Medium to add it to the ribbon. The pictures don’t do the Sugar Paste justice, it’s subtle but nice and sparkly!

City Welcome – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

City Welcome – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello peeps! I hope that you all had a safe and happy 4th of July! I went out to my friend Carol’s and got to see a bunch of friends that I haven’t seen in a while which is always a good time!

It’s time for my July Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! You know that I love a little cityscape and the new City Stacks Stamps and Dies are perfect for making a little scene!

I started by heat embossing the buildings from the Concord & 9th City Stacks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto some different shades of Grey 110lb Card Stock. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card base I blended Hero Arts Soft Pool Ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to create a subtle sky. I wanted to make the card easy to mail so I added the different building to the card front with E-Z Runner. The welcome is cut from Silver Glitter Card and adhered to the bottom with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Pretty simple but I do love the different “streets” of buildings!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Sparkle & Shine!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Sparkle & Shine!

Hello again! Two days in a row! I’m trying to get back to being crafty, a little Mojo here and there. I had a nice quiet evening last night, just hung out with Cali and watched some TV. Today I have some cleaning and laundry to do. I also have to get my stuff together for tomorrow’s road trip to PA. I do love a good road trip! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Who doesn’t like a little sparkle and shine?! I went for a super simple card with a lot of sparkle and shine! I stared by die cutting the Concord & 9th Bitty Thank You Die from Black 110lb three times so that I could stack them together for a little depth. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. My card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock has a piece of Silver Glitter Card adhered to the front and then I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhere the thank you! A super simple card that would make a great wedding thank you card! If you wanted to mass produce them you could skip the stacked die to speed up the process!

Retro You’re My Jam – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Retro You’re My Jam – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hi everyone! It’s time for my June Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! When I saw the new Mix Tape Stamps and Dies I had to have them! Brings back memories of my youth! LOL!

I started by stamping the cassette tape from the Concord & 9th Mix Tape Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice onto Solar White 80lb and then used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. I used some of the other Dies in the Set to cut out the outline of the tape and music notes. I also used another Die to emboss the detail on the Black Die cut. I assembled the cassette tape and used my Mini Misti to stamp the “tape heart” onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I stamped the You’re My Jam onto more Solar White 80lb and cut it out with my Scissors. To assemble the card I used 3m Foam Tape to adhere the cassette tape and greeting to my card base and some Multi-Matte Medium to add the music notes. A nice simple black and white card to give to someone special!
