Hello everyone!!  I’m here again showcasing the Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp set  and the Sprinkles Tag Set from Concord & 9th as apart of their 2nd Birthday Celebration!!

Lets take a look:

Concord & 9th Sprinkled with Love

Yes, I created a gift bag using the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set and the Sprinkles Tag Set!

I love how this cute little bag turned out.

Concord & 9th Sprinkled with Love die

 

Here’s how I created it:

The tag:

  • Using the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp create the sprinkle pattern on a piece of white cardstock, with 4 different ink colors. Note: Follow the direction on the back of the package to line up the stamp perfectly to get the even pattern.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the center of the pattern with black ink.
  • Ink up the stamp again this time using Versamark ink and sprinkle black embossing power over the sentiment.
  • Heat set the powder for a raised intense sentiment.
  • Use the Sprinkles Tag die to cut out the tag.
  • Use We R Memory Keepers Power Punch to punch a hole at the top of the tag.

The bag:

  • Create the bag with We R Memory Keepers Box Punch Board.
  • Before folding the bag, use the small sprinkle stamp and Versamark Ink to create sprinkles all over the bag.
  • Sprinkle clear embossing powder on top and heat set.  This gives the image a translucent look.
  • Use ribbon to close the bag and attach the tag.  Once the bow is tied, run a piece of string under the bow and attach a couple charms.

Pretty amazing to see how a stamp set can transform a piece of cardstock.

So, what do you think?  Will you use the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set and die to create a couple of gift bags?  Let me know.  I would love to hear from you.

Concord & 9th 2nd Birthday Celebration

Hello everyone!! Today I’m so excited to be here celebrating Concord & 9th 2nd Birthday!! Yes, they turn 2 today!!

Time flies when your having fun is such a true statement.  I remember when they first started out and to see them grow in such a way feels good as a customer.

I’m so happy that I get to celebrate with them!

Take a look at the card I created:

Concord & 9th Seriously I Thank You

Concord and 9th, Seriously Thank You for trusting me to showcase your products within my creations!! I truly appreciate it.

This stamp set is totally amazing.  The sentiment is so meaningful and powerful.  It lets the receiver know that you really thank them.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Use distress inks to create the watercolor background on watercolor paper.
  2. Then heat set it so that the watercolor dries completely.
  3. After that, prep the watercolor panel using an anti-static tool.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Versamark ink.
  5. Pour silver embossing powder of the stamped sentiment.
  6. Brush off the excess and heat set the powder.
  7. Die cut the panel using Neat and Tangle Scalloped Die.
  8. Cut and score the card base to 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.5o.
  9. Use a star embossing folder and emboss the card front with stars.
  10. Adhere the watercolor panel to the front of the card base using 3M foam tape.
  11. Add some clear gumdrops to finish the card off.

Nothing to it!!

Announcement:

Head on over to Concord and 9th website to get a look at the entire release.  You will not be disappointed.

Embossing – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Embossing!

Take a look at my card:

For this card I use the heart die from Concord and 9th Heartstrings Die to create an embossed heart on the card front. I have to confess, when I ran the paper through the Big Shot, I didn’t expect the paper to ruffle up.

Once I took the paper off of the cutting plate, I started to get upset.  Thinking I had to start over, I took a second look at the paper. I actually loved the way the ruffles looked on the card front. The paper looks handmade so I decided to go with it.

So I decided to watercolor inside the heart.  Once that dried I added the word kind from Concord and 9th Kind Card Frame Add on Die across the heart.

To finish the card off, I used Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to add shimmer to the watercolor and the sentiment and some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots.

Take a look:

I love how this card turned out!! What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I decided to go with and actually icing die cut from a retired Top Dog Die die set.

  1. I dried emboss the front of the card stock with a retired Stampin Up! embossing folder.
  2. Then I used a retired Top Dog Die Cupcake die through my big shot.  I used a couple pieces of scrap paper for that.
  3. I adhered the cupcake to the card front using 3M foam tape.
  4. The I stamped Sweet Stamp Shop Birthday Sentiments on a piece of scrap paper, trimmed it and stapled it to the card front.

Nice and Easy.
