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!!

{Clean and Simple} – Diamond

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

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

Who doesn’t think of a diamond ring when you see the word diamond, LOL!!!  I used an old die from Top Dog Die, which closed 2 years ago, called Wedding Die Set. I die cut Rinea’s Silver Foil for a realistic look.

I comes with this pretty diamond ring and the wedding band to match.  I decided to create a thank you card that you would give to your wedding guest.

What do you think?

Concord & 9th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

C9 Birthday Bash RECTANGLE

I’m so excited to be here today!!  Concord & 9th is celebrating their First Birthday on August 9th and I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with them.  Let me tell you why!!

I first ran into Concord & 9th on Instagram.  I was browsing through different post and ran into this post:

Concord & 9th Watercolor 1

I was instantly intrigued.  I wanted to know more about this company so I headed straight to their page.

Then I saw this post:

Concord & 9th Watercolor 2

I was sold!!  I had to follow them.  I love watercoloring and these cards were perfect.  I noticed that they were new a company and only had a couple of post so I knew this would be fun to see what they had in store for me as a follower.

Then on September 9th, one month after they opened, I received an email from Angie and was blown away!! She complimented me on my work and asked if I would like to do a guest social media post with them.  What??

ABSOLUTELY!!  I was so excited for a couple of reasons:

  1. Here it was a new company who liked my work, and
  2. They asked me to represent their brand new company.

That was big to me!!  They put their faith and trust in me to represent them. I am grateful!!

You can check out what I created here and here.

Angie and I spoke back and forth for quite sometime.  I learn some much about Concord & 9th and Angie and Greg!!  Super cool company and amazing people behind it!!

So now we are here a year later and they’ve grown in such an amazing way!! I feel honored to call them my friends!!

So here’s my way of saying thank you for a year of great releases:

Happy Birthdary Angie (C9)

Thank you Angie!!

Thank you Greg (C()

Thank you Greg!!

I decided to start with these cards for two reasons:

  1. To say Thank You, and
  2. To display my favorite stamp set of all time from Concord & 9th, the Sophisticated Script Uppercase and Sophisticated Script stamp set!!

This is my go to stamp set if I want to custom create a word sentiment that I don’t already have!!  My daughter thought these cards were so cool to make.  She wants to stamp out her name now.  LOL!!

These cards were super easy to create using Happy Hues Cards/Envelope Pack that Concord and 9th sells.

The next card is a special one for me. Take a look:

Happy Birthday (C9)

Yayyyy, Happy Birthday Concord & 9th!!

When Angie reached out to me about guest posting the Eat Cake & Celebrate Bundle was one of the stamp sets and dies that she asked me to play with.  So its only right to use this same stamp set especially since its Concord & 9th Birthday!!!

I’m not 100% sure but I believe that Angie and Greg has a love for watercolor so I created this card using distress inks for that reason.

I just couldn’t stop so I made one last card:

You've got this (C9)

I want to leave the Concord & 9th team with a little word of encouragement with some watercoloring!!

For this card I used the You’ve Got This Die and die cut a piece of watercolor paper.

I’m done now!! I hope you liked all of the cards that I created for this hop!!  Please let me know below!  I would really love to hear from you.

WAIT!!!  Don’t go yet!!  I have one more thing!!
