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.

thanks-from-the-bottom-cas

For this week’s cue card I used Winnie and Walters From the Bottom of My Heart stamp set that I received as a gift for placing an order with them.  Super cute stamp set.

To create this card:

I stamped the heart using Colorbox Pinkolicious Archival Dye Ink in the center of the card base. Nothing to it!!

White space + No embellishments + Easy to replicate = CAS!

love-challenge

Take a look at my card:

love-you-wcmc9-copy

I’m telling you I really can’t get enough of these Happy Hues notecards.  They add so much to each and everyone of my card designs!! I paired this notecard with the Heartstrings Bundle stamp set and dies.

Here’s how I created this card in two easy steps:

  1. Die cut the front of the card using the heart die cut using the Big Shot.
  2. Use the Mini Misti tool to stamp the sentiment in the center of the heart.

Nice and easy.

If your looking for the Your Next Stamp Winter Fun post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our third challenge and we couldn’t wait to share our love for Concord and 9th!!

Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

sparkle-and-shine-c9

Take a look at my card:

grateful-wcmc9

For this challenge, shape cards were in order.  I love making cards that are odd shaped from time to time. For the sparkle and shine I foiled the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.  Super doper easy!!

These cards could be turned into tags as well.  Just punch a hole and write on the inside of the tag.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

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

Right At Home Stamps One Year Celebration Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited today!!  A year ago today, Nicole from Right At Home released her first stamp set called Happy Mail.  Totally amazing and fun.  So today the Design Team and some special guest are celebrating with an amazing blog hop.

one-year-graphic

We have some amazing projects for all of you using the new Happy Mail Year 2 combined with the original Happy Mail stamp set.

Take a look at my card and envelope:

You've got Mail

Congrats Nicole on making a year of totally greatness.  Your stamp sets are super cute and fun to play with.  I’m super happy to work along side you and the rest of the team.

I created a clean and simple card and envelope using both stamp sets!

I stamped the tiny envelopes using Versamark ink and heat embossed Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder. Then I stamped the You’ve Got Mail and a tiny heart stamp with Clearsnap Home Colorbox Petal Point and heat set it with clear embossing powder.

After that, the circle was fussy cut and adhered to the card front.

For the envelope, I simply stamped the flowers and sentiment using Clearsnap Petal Point Ink and heat set the clear embossing powder.

Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

What is a blog hop without a giveaway!!

All you have to do is:

  1. Create a new project specifically for this hop using any of your favorite Right At Home Stamps.  Bonus points if you use Happy Mail or Happy Mail Year 2.
  2. Link up your project and it’s accompanying blog post in the link-up on Nicole’s blog.

To create these cards:

  1. Cut your cardstock to 4 x 8 card size, scored at 4.
  2. Using the Mini Misti, place the stamps exactly where you want them to appear on your card front.
  3. Ink the stamps up and stamp!!

Super easy and fun!!

I hope I see all of you tomorrow for the July 2016 Release Hop.
