Concord & 9th

Featuring Concord & 9th products

Starting to feel like Autumn

There’s definitely a touch of Autumn in the air! Leaves are beginning to fall and I think that the days are feeling a little shorter.

For today’s card, I used the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, but instead of 3 die cuts, I chose a Memory Box stem die with three seed heads. Hope this is OK for the challenge!

I created a background panel using some distress stains and then added a Concord & 9th sentiment to finish it off!

I’m also entering this into the current Memory Box challenge which has the theme ‘falling for fall’.

Wherever you go….

Hello Everyone!

The theme for the current Less is More Challenge is ‘your perfect holiday’… I was originally thinking of palm trees/beach scene – great fun, but actually not my idea of MY perfect holiday! I don’t mind a few beach days, but I do love exploring on holiday! I want to get on a plane and spend my vacation exploring a city or marvelling at some amazing landscape….. I couldn’t really find a stamp which summed up all that, so settled on the fabulous Concord & 9th globe greetings set. They stamp so well with the distress oxide ink and I just love that little plane!

I added a background that I created for a splatter challenge a few weeks ago and then a sentiment from a Fiskars that I’ve had for ages!

I’m also entering this into the current Where Creativity meets C9  challenge – ‘anything goes’.

Masked bird

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘Masking’ and Stamplorations is our sponsor.

I absolutely ADORE masking – it is one of my favourite techniques and one I use a lot, especially for one layer cards – this cute owl card was so much fun to create, as was this stencilled card.

For my card, I used the fabulous ‘G’day Mate’ stamp set – a collaboration between Avery Elle and Ellen Hutson. I love the colours in this month’s Ellen Hutson Pinsights Challenge so I used some of them when colouring the bird. I then masked off the image and used the My Favourite Things Radiating Rays Stencil to create the background. To finish off the card, I used a word die from Ellen Hutson together with a Concord & 9th stamp and a few glittery stars!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Maria from White Mood. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

I’m also entering my card into the current Ellen Hutson Pinsights challenge.

I hope you’ll play along with us over at AAA Cards and have as much fun creating with this technique as I do!

You are radiant and lovely

Hi everyone!

How fabulous are the Concord and 9th turnabout stamps?! I used the sunshine turnabout stamp for this card. Love how easy it is to create sun rays with this! Anyway, I finished it off with some little hearts and a word cut from glitter paper – love the sparkle!

I’m entering this into two challenges – the Time Out Challenge and the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge – embossing!

Thanks for stopping by!

You are so incredibly awesome!

Hi everyone!

I am loving how nicely the distress oxide inks stamp and for today’s card I’ve used them with the gorgeous Flower Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th.

I embossed a sentiment from Paper Source and added a couple of vellum flourishes to finish it off.

I’m entering this card in the current Flower Challenge – heat/dry embossing and the challenge hosted by Where Creativity Meets C9 – embossing.

Thanks for stopping by!
