Where Creativity Meets C9 Floral Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with my last Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team post!! I’m stepping down at the end of this month.  It’s been my pleasure to work with my teammates and Concord and 9th.

Now onto Our challenge this month which is Floral!!

Wow, my last challenge was a bit of a challenge for me. Florals aren’t my favorite because I’m never sure what to create with them. LOL!!  I made 4 cards before settling on this one.

Let’s take a look at my card:

Pineapple PerfectionI love how this card turned out. I used Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection stamp set.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Use one of the small flowers and stamp it four times, along with the sentiment with Altenew Jet Black Ink.
  2. Color each flower with a different color using Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.
  3. To get the light color in the center of the flowers, use Tombow Sand Eraser to remove some of the color.
  4. Round each corner using We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Super, super easy.

Working with florals wasn’t so bad after all. The sentiment is my favorite, as I say to my fellow teammates: All the Best Friend!!

What do you think? Please let me know below.

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

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to a A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50.

2. I cut the Simple Stories Summer Vibes pattern paper to 4.25 x 5.50 and used Your Next Stamp Scrapworks-Mini Sunburst Die Set to cut a flower in the center of the paper.

3. I used the pattern paper as a guide to draw a light flower on my card panel where I want my swing for the bear to appear.

4. I used the Misti and stamped the swing stamp where I wanted it. I erased the pencil mark.

5. I stamped the sentiment from the Words Critters – Exotic Animal Stamp Set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

6. I adhered the pattern paper to the card base using foam adhesive.

7. I colored my bear with Copic Markers: black, BG34, E13, R20.
