Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-223-team

Take a look at my card:

if-loving-you-is-wrong-cas

I took a differnt approach to this cue card.  When I think of team, I think of a husband and wife team or a boyfriend and girlfriend team.  In order for their union to work or suceed they have to work together.

So I went with Sweet Stamp Shop Guac Love for this challenge!! This stamp set is so cute. I’ve used it a could of times, can you tell!  LOL!

Then I colored it in with my Prisma Pencils and Gamsol.  Super easy!!

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

For more inspiration, check out my fellow Design Team members blog for more awesome work.

watercolor-challenge

Take a look at my card:

much-love-c9

This month’s theme is so much fun.  Watercoloring is such a free flowing medium and I just love it.

For this card I used Sakura Koi watercolors to add color to the Bristol White card base and let it dry.

Then I stamped the Tree Hugs Stamp Set and Brushed Blossom Stamp Set with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Black Ink to create this card.

Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

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

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our very first challenge and we couldn’t be more happier 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:

Take a look at my card:

love-in-my-heart

Are you wondering how my card ties in with the theme for this month.  I am an out of the box crafter.  I try not to go with the obvious. I’m celebrating LOVE!! Oh to love is a celebration, especially when you feel it in your heart!!

We celebrate the love of our children, the love of our parents, the love of our sibling and the love of our life!!  So I created a card that mirrors that celebratory feeling.

Here’s how:

  • Cut your cardbase to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50, scored at 5.50).
  • Using Concord and 9th Give Thanks stamp set, stamp the heart using Clearsnap Colorbox Doodlebug Pigment Petal Point Ink.
  • Stamp the heart three times, starting at the bottom with the lightest color, moving up to the darker color.
  • Using the Mini Misti, stamp the second line of the sentiment first with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wick Ink. Re-ink if needed.
  • Then stamp the love sentiment but inking it up with the same three colors, slightly overlapping each color.
  • Once the pigment ink dries, use a paint brush and some black ink to add ink splatters over the entire card.

Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

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

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 205 - Chevron

Take a look at my card:

Love Ya(CAS)

I’ve been on a stencil kick for the past two weeks.  Its just so easy to use.

I used Simon Says Stamp Zig Zap stencil paired with Clearsnap Colorbox Fun Ink and a dauber to create the design on the top and bottom of this card.

Then I covered the stenciled portion of the card with Clearsnap clear embossing powder.

After that,  I used Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words to stamp the sentiment in the middle of the card using Versafine Ink.

Nice and easy!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Guest Designing for Concord & 9th and coupon code!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a brand new company, Concord & 9th!!!

logo

I have to say that I’m over the top excited about this new online retail shop that offers fun products and inspiration for your paper crafting needs!!

I found them them on Instagram a couple of weeks ago.  I was looking for new people to follow and I saw this amazing watercolor card and was totally drawn in.

Take a look:

FullSizeRender (2)
I said OMG, this is beautiful!! I had to look further!!  When I arrived on their Instagram feed, I was impressed. I started following them immediately. Then I went over to their website and learned more about them.  I loved the story behind how they started and I was tickled when I found out how they came up with their name.

A week later, Angie one of the owners contacted me and invited me to be a guest designer.  I was over the top excited!!! I read the email a couple of times before I responded!! I said YES and here we are today.

Before I share my cards, Greg and Angie wanted to say hello:

“Hello from Concord & 9th! We are excited to be partnering with Kymona on this special blog post. We stumbled upon one of Kymona’s cards, checked out her blog and fell in love with her style – we love clean and simple, and we LOVE watercoloring!

Concord & 9th was formed by Greg & Angie whose paths crossed 5 years ago in the corporate craft world. We realized we both have a passion for the craft industry. Greg studied product design and business, then headed into a career in product development. Angie has been an avid paper crafter for 15 years, with a focus on stamps, inky fingers and product development. So, we sat down and came up with a plan to start our dream jobs! The name Concord & 9th is an intersection of where we live. Greg lives on Concord, Angie lives off 9th. We loved the idea of our paths crossing, taking a new route in life and intersecting with other crafters and designers, like YOU, so we made our logo have a street sign vibe.

Our aim is to keep products fresh & trendy for you, so we decided to offer new product releases on the 9th of each month (see what we did there?). We are excited about the response to our new shop so far and for what we have in the works. We tend to get too excited to wait for the 9th so we sneak products leading up to the 9th.

We are SO glad our paths crossed with Kymona’s, and look forward to crossing paths with you too! Come take a ride with us on all the fun social media outlets (links on our homepage) so we can keep in touch!”

Yayyy, Greg and Angie!!!  I’m super excited our paths crossed too!!

I couldn’t wait to share some of the projects I created using their Map Love Stamp Set!!

Take a look at my first card:

You Mean the World to Me 1

Watercoloring is my favorite medium and this stamp set is perfect for it.

Map Love

Look at all of those sentiments and world images!! The possibilities are endless with is stamp set.

Take a look at my second card:

Love Makes the World Round 1

Same stamp set, different style!!  Super versatile!!

Are you excited just as much as I am?  I hope so!!

Wait!!!  I have a coupon code to share with you!!  I was given permission to offer a 15% coupon code. The code is: KYMONA and its good until the end of the day on September 30!

They also offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders $75 and more.  You can used the discount with the free shipping but the free shipping applies after the discount.

Sooooo, what do you think?  I love how my cards turned out!!  Please let me know down below!!

Elephant Type of Love

Second Post for the day

If your looking for my Valentine Tag, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m back with another challenge that I haven’t played with in a very long time.

The Less is More Challenge is celebrating their 4th Year!  How exciting is this!!  I’m so glad I get to play along with them this week.

This week is a color challenge and the color are Pink and Grey!

I love these colors.  My high school uniform was pink and grey and I loved wearing it!!  The colors just matched perfectly. LOL!!!

Take a look at my card:

Love

OMG!!  Isn’t that little baby elephant the cutest animal you’ve seen!!!  I love it!!

Here’s how I created this card:

1. I cut Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 size(4.25 x 5.50) top folding card.

2. I cut a flower using Waffle Flower Craft Flower Circles Die Set out of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy cardstock and some scrap white card stock for depth.

3. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Wafer Die to cut a circle out of Authentique Classique: Pretty Pattern paper.

4. I cut my baby elephant from Top Dog Dies Elephants Die Set out of fog cardstock and the little heart out of the cotton candy cardstock.

5.  Now its time to put the card together. I adhered the stitched circle to the card base first. Then I attached the flower die.  Then I adhered the elephant and heart inside the flower circle. I used foam adhesive.

6. I added the love sentiment from Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Rub Ons.

7. I adhered Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to both sides of the sentiment.

That’s it!!  I think this card is so cute!!  What do you think?  Let me know.

I’m also linking up to AAA Card Challenge.  The theme is Love.  I’m super happy that I get to play along with them this time.
