Hello everyone!! I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Layered!
Take a look at my card:
To create this card, I used Concord & 9th Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp set paired with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Die Inks.
- I followed the directions on the back of the stamp set packaging as to ensure that I stamped correctly on my card panel.
- I used 3 different color inks from Clearsnap to stamp each turnaround.
- When using this stamp set, once you stamp the first set, you turn the cardstock not the stamp to make the right stamp marks.
- Once card panel was completed, I die cut a piece of vellum using a circle die.
- Then I stamped the main sentiment using Versamark and added white embossing powder. Heat set.
- Adhere the vellum to the card front using foam dots.
Super quite and easy. I love this stamp set for the sentiments included. They are so powerful and encouraging.
What do you think? Please let know below.

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of July.
This month’s theme is Take a Technique: Stenciling or Masking!! That means you can use a stencil or mask somewhere on your creation with a stamped image or sentiment anywhere on your creation.
Take a look at my card:
Stenciling is so pretty to me. I just love how easy it is to create a super nice and simple background that looks so elegant!!
Here is how I create this card:
- I place Create a Smile Boxes Stencil on top of an A2 size card and held it down with post it tape.
- Then I used Distress Ink Wild Honey and Scattered Straw and applied ink using an ink blending tool.
- I started in the bottom right hand corner with wild honey and move my way up the card getting lighter with scattered straw.
- Then I stamped the sentiments from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink.
Super simple and easy!!!
Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.
We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for August is: GiogioCraft!
Prize: Bundle of 4 Stencils
Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favorite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post!
Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Did I say how much I’m enjoying this online card class. Well here it is, I’m having an awesome time in this CAS 3 Card Class. I’ve learned so much so far and we have weeks to go. Enough about me, today’s card focused on a different type of optical illusion, Masking!! Jennifer McGuire taught us how to use our die cuts to mask of areas and apply ink. I had fun, so much so, that I ink the side of my card stock with the distress ink that I had to ink the sides of the cards too. I love how it came out, despite my mistake.
