Concord & 9th's 2nd Birthday Celebration - Happy Balloons

Good morning! Welcome to another Friday of more Concord & 9th goodness. The Where Creativity Meets C9 team is back for Feature Friday and today we are sharing projects using the new set, Happy Balloons.

There are soooo many possibilities when creating with this sweet set. Just the stamp set alone has a variety of stamping options, but then add the die collection and it's even more amazing!

I love the 'happy' balloon die outline and chose to focus on that for my card today. 

I started with a white piece of card-stock (4" x 5.25") and stamped the decorative triangle line image along the bottom. Next, I die-cut all of my balloon pieces and attached those to the center of the white stamped panel. Then came the banner that I stamped 'birthday' on, the balloon string and tassels. I added a few sequins before attaching it to my turquoise card base.

And because I loved that card so much I continued on and made a set of 4. I kept the colors all the same... hot pink, light purple, turquoise and yellow. I just mixed and matched between the cards.

Thanks so much for popping in to say hello. You can see lots more Happy Balloons inspiration on my talented teammates blogs and on the Concord & 9th blog

Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge - Merry Christmas

Good morning! Today I'm playing along in the Ellen Hutson Mix-It-Up Challenge

The challenge this month is to mix any Essentials by Ellen stamps with Avery Elle.

I went with a Christmas theme for my card and these are the two sets I mixed ...

I couldn't stop at just one card, so I created two. I used the coordinating Sweet Tidings die collection to create all of my images and colored them in with Copics. 

Thanks for popping in!

Concord & 9th's 2nd Birthday Celebration - Sprinkles Turnabout

Happy Friday, friends! I'm so excited to be back, along with the rest of the Where Creativity Meets C9 team, to continue the celebration of Concord & 9th's 2nd birthday. Today, we are sharing projects using their new, and oh so fun set, Sprinkles Turnabout & the Sprinkles Tag dies.

Love this set so much! The cupcakes, the sentiments, the sprinkles...everything! 

Cupcakes & sprinkles call for lots of color! I kept my background white and focused on making those cupcakes POP!

Hey there cupcake! How cute is this sentiment?!

I die-cut the coordinating die, and stamped my sentiment and cupcake, before attaching it to my card front with dimensional foam. So fun, bright & cheery!! 

Just a friendly reminder (and maybe a little enabling) about the Concord & 9th Promotions that are going on. Trust me, you'll want to check it out! ;)

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting with me!

Concord & 9th's 2nd Birthday Celebration

Good morning! Today, the Where Creativity Meets C9 team is helping Concord & 9th celebrate their 2nd birthday. YAY! They have peeked some pretty amazing new products over the past few days. Just when I think I couldn't possibly love their designs anymore, they release something new and even more fabulous! 

Like this new Seriously, Thank You stamp set. This set is FREE, in the month of August, when you spend $60 or more in their shop. 

There is also a new Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge to join in on this month. Challenge #12 is Anything Goes! ..

Now onto my card for today. There are so many possible ways to use the images in this stamp set. I started by stamping the sentiment, in black ink, onto a piece of white cardstock. I then stamped it again, in yellow, onto a piece of yellow cardstock and trimmed the 'SERIOUSLY' out. I attached that over the black 'SERIOUSLY' I had stamped first. Next, I filled in the white space of the letters by coloring them in with Copics. And lastly, to dress up my sentiment even more, I added a few of the decorative lines around some of the words.

Before attaching my sentiment to my card front, I stamped and die-cut a few flowers and leaves using the Petals & Pallets stamp and die collection and attached those along the left side of my card. To complete it, I added clear sequins for a bit of sparkle and shine.

 To learn more about how you can receive the Seriously, Thank You set for FREE, please visit Concord & 9th's Promo Page. 

And be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the Where Creativity Meets C9 team has to share with you ...
